foreclosures: Someone you know NEEDS HELP! Please pass this along! - 02/19/13 06:06 PM
So here is the truth. People need help. YOU MAY NOT, but someone YOU know is hurting, and they are scared, they do not know were to turn and they do not want their family or friends to know what the deal is. My PASSION is to help people that feel there is no hope. People that are silently silently sinking. Falling into a trap. Looking for information, looking for answers. The inner voice telling you one thing, the outer world telling something else. It is easy to only look at your own views and worry about your own success, but (5 comments)
foreclosures: The loan modification GAME...yes I said GAME! - 01/10/13 02:44 PM
Do you realize the games being played with loan modifications? First and foremost I AM NOT TELLING YOU NOT TO DO A LOAN MODIFICATION. I personally did one, but why do you think the banks ask you for so much information? It is not because they are trying to help you. Remember in most cases the bank you are with IS NOT the original bank you did your loan with. Why is this important? They do not have financial information on you! Who is the bank really looking out for? They are protecting their own interest and the stockholders or investors (0 comments)
foreclosures: short sales in santa clarita valley today! you need an advocate! - 04/05/12 10:55 AM
Not only are we in the field out helping families, we are also connected and “in tune” with many of the banks, and get a good pulse of things going on. I have a couple of things to discuss. The first being the homeowner that is 61 days late on the mortgage. Need less to say this becomes a stressful time. This is the time the banks tend to start calling, sending letters etc….REMEMBER the bank is nothing but a DEBIT COLLECTOR and their only purposes is to SETTLE DEBIT with you and MINIMZE loss to them and their investors. You (0 comments)
foreclosures: You need a real estate advocate! Somebody on your side - 03/27/12 11:25 PM

foreclosures: What is the big deal? Why should I do a short sale? Why not just walk away? - 01/06/12 01:11 PM
This is an attitude that I run into more than I wish. I understand were people are coming from too. I am speaking about the person that would prefer to stay in their home. The person that has tried to refinance, tried to do a loan modification, and for whatever reason it was not successful. This person has been beaten down by the process, beaten down by things in "life" and just wants it to end and start from scratch. Here is the reason YOU DONT WALK AWAY. First I want to say sometimes there ARE reasons you should walk away (0 comments)
foreclosures: I am doing a Loan Mod and the bank is not going to foreclose on me....REALLY??????? - 11/21/11 12:42 PM
For months on end the banks were not releasing some of their backed up inventory. Many of the banks were (and still are) playing the TRIAL loan modification game. Allowing borrowers to go from loan mod to short sale back to loan mod again. Well look around. Its a new day. In areas I am working in Valencia, Castaic, and areas such as Sylmar, Lake View Terrace and Northridge, you are seeing MORE REO's come to the market AND more short sales. You are seeing the short sales be "APPROVED" short sales OR different short sale programs. Some of the lenders (0 comments)
foreclosures: The Foreclosure process speeding up in Santa Clarita! - 11/20/11 03:45 PM
There are a few things happening we have discussed previously, that you are currently seeing come to the market place. At least in the Santa Clarita Valley and San Fernando Valley (areas I work) you see the whole loan modification, short sale, REO process speeding up and taking a different shape. What do I mean by this? Let's start with loan modifications: Loan Modifications- We have all experienced or know of someone that has been involved in a loan modification and the process takes a long time. It took a long time whether the loan was denied OR approved. In many cases (3 comments)
