As Director of American Homeowner Preservation (a group that strives to keep homeowner's in risk of foreclosure in their own homes), responsible for all day to day negotiations.
Experience and Specialities
EXPERIENCE: 17-years experience buying & selling distressed properties along with foreclosure prevention. From SFR's to a 1,100-unit complex, have bought hundreds of REO's & properties at foreclosure sales, bankruptcy auctions, etc. Former principal in mortgage, property management and real estate brokerage firms. 2009, transitioned AHP Inc. to the for-profit American Homeowner Preservation, LLC. I do not have a magic formula for success, but I have learned a lot and enjoy sharing my experiences helping distressed properties. You can view a full ownership history at my Jorge Newbery website.
William Beltran, Millville, NJ. Deed in Lieu March 2013. "I am infinitely happy," he said. "It is increbibly thrilling and humbling to be able to stay in my home, especially since, for a while, I was pretty much waiting for the sheriff to show up at my door at any time. Selling or moving was not something I ever wanted to consider. This is my home - it's where my children grew up and where I have a lifetime of memories. I am so grateful.
Denis. Investor. Cincinnati, OH. Short Sale completed July 2009. "I'm not a businessman but that doesn't mean that I take buying property lightly. My wife couldn't understand the idea of the home being sold so cheaply. The business aspect didn't make sense to her so I said trust me, if I lose the money you can say I told you so-I framed the first rent check! I'd buy all of AHP properties if I had the money right now. I like the idea of helping people so it is really perfect."
Judith. Homeowner. Akron, OH. Short Sale completed June, 2009. Owed $68,000 and now has option to repurchase for $24,150. "When we were starting to have financial problems, my daughter went on the computer and saw AHP's website. We heard about something on the news that said stay away from programs like these if they want money upfront, so I called and the man said that we didn't have to pay anything. He invited us to a presentation at the library, and he spent a lot of time with us-and now we know that he was telling the truth. About four months after we started the program, the bank stopped harassing us and it has been a Godsend."
Constance. Investor. Akron, OH. Short Sale completed June, 2009. "We felt like it was a safe investment, and loved the fact that the lease option was already built into buying the property. The grunt work was done for us so we didn't have to deal with it. After looking at hundreds of homes in the past, the condition of the home, the price, and the tenant made AHP the most attractive option. We're happy that AHP allowed this to happen, and would invest in another home in a heartbeat."
