Pick 3 real estate offices in the area and call and ask for either the broker or the manager. Tell that person your situation and ask for their best short sale agent. That broker/manager will not want to fall on their face so they will pick their very best person for you. Make sure you then get solid proof that the agent has done short sales in the last 6 months. If possible find out if they have done any short sales specifically with the bank that holds your note(s). I would be happy to make up a set of good interview questions for you. 75% of my business right now is short sales. In fact I'm at my desk putting a package together for a deal I just put together in Hercules. No two short sales are ever alike but there is certainly a great deal of knowledge that only experience can bring. I'll be happy to help you come up with a plan to find the right agent. The important thing to keep in mind is that you MUST talk to more than one agent. You are welcome to call, text or email me anytime. Neil Case, email@example.com, 925-382-7294.
