I agree with some of these agents, it is very hard to get your foot in the door with these big banks and agencies, due to the overwhelming amount of agents who want to in. About 6 months ago I was asking myself the same question, becacuse I also wanted to list REO's. What I did was signup with all the platforms and free agencies as well as BPO companies. I have listed my first 2 REO's in the past 8 months, and the listings came from smaller local banks that did not use a nationwide REO portal like Equator or Res.net. I researched the forelcosure they had on their books and made many calls trying to figure out who was responsible for the selling of these homes. I would recommend you find a smaller local bank that has foreclosed on a home and personally go speak to the manager or bank rep that is responsible for selling the home.
