Hi Chris Pendleton here, Associate Broker with Tierra Antigua Realty in the metropolitan Tucson Arizona area. Today I am going to talk to you on why you should select Chris Pendleton as your Tucson Arizona Short Sale Realtor or Tucson Short Sale Real Estate Agent.
One of the things we realized long ago is that not every Short Sale Realtor or Short Sale Real Estate Agent was created equal. We have more education and more experience in Tucson Short Sales, Oro Valley Short Sales, Marana Short Sales, Sahuarita Short Sales, Green Valley Short Sales and Vail Short Sales than most other agents. I am going to be talking about the traits that you should look for or ask a potential Short Sale Real Estate Agent or Short Sale Realtor.
One of the first traits of a Tucson Short Sale Realtor or Tucson Short Sale Real Estate Agent that you want to look for is someone who is honest, tough, and a desire to help people. My background is retiring from the fire service as Fire Chief and also as a Paramedic, so my life has been dedicated to helping people and my honesty and integrity is beyond reproach.
The next trait you look for in a Tucson Short Sale Real Estate Agent or Tucson Short Sale Realtor is education. We maintain almost every known short sale certification there is. Some of the certifications we have includes Certified Short Sale Professional, Certified Distressed Property Expert, Certified Short Sale Negotiator, Certified Negotiation Expert, Pre-Foreclosure Specialist, Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource, HAFA Specialist and Equator Platinum Short Sale Agent. In addition we have studied Short Sales under Group 4610 in the Phoenix area and studied negotiating with Charles Karrass. We have an Associates in Fire Science and a Bachelors of Business Administration.
The next trait that you should ask a potential Tucson Short Sale Real Estate Agent or Tucson Short Sale Realtor is about experience. We made short sales our specialty about 4 years ago. We have done short sales with some of the toughest banks out there and we have continually changed our business practices as the banking industry and short sale techniques have change. We have been listed as a preferred agent in the partner first database, Bank of America database, Equator Database and recently was selected as a Chase Priority Partner because of our success in closing short sales. Approximately 75% of our business is short sales and this year alone we estimate we will close about 50 transactions. We have a huge amount of experience in negotiations and have closed the toughest of transactions.
In addition to the knowledge and experience we have developed a marketing system that markets the short sale home extensively. No other realtor does as much as we do to market your home. Our clients are always impressed with our customized marketing plan to make sure anyone who is looking for a house in the area is aware of your home. We are constantly attracting buyers for the homes that we list.
We also use a unique and special software solution to manage and track the short sale that keeps everyone from the seller, to the buyer to the title company completely updated all the time.
One of the next questions we typically get is 'How much does this cost?' The best thing is that there is no out of pocket costs for the seller. Some short sale realtors or short sale real estate agents charge a retainer fee. We do not. We charge a normal commission that is paid by the bank if we are successful at closing the transaction. If we are not successful we don't get paid and you don't owe us any money.
So if you are faced with foreclosure and are considering a short sale, we hope that you will give us a call for a free consultation today.
Thanks and have a great day.
