I am not personally a realtor, but I can certainly refer you to one here in Des Moines. I'd feel more comfortable making a referral if I know more about where the property is located, etc.
My mortgage company actually offers short sale processing for agents all over the city. Since we offer this service, I'm extremely well connected with agents that have a lot of short sale experience.
If you or your son would like me to help connect you with someone, please give me a call or e-mail me! I'd love to help connect you.
