Chances are, you or someone you know in Gainesville is facing the possibility of foreclosure. But you need to understand that you are not alone.
As borrowers continue to default, job losses mount nationwide and the nation’s economy continues to reel under the pressure of one of the most intense recessions in decades, the number of homes going into foreclosure across the nation continues to rise with no end in sight.
Today, 1 out of every 6 homeowners in America is behind on mortgage payments. These are tough and frustrating times. Now more than ever, it's important to identify your options. Foreclosure can be avoided, your credit can be saved, and your financial future can be salvaged.
Through my experience handling distressed properties at Anson Properties, I've found that homeowners today have more questions than answers about their circumstances. I have created this site to help you understand the possible solutions to foreclosure, as well as provide a detailed explanation of short sales, which may be the best course of action for some homeowners.
You may also have noticed that I'm offering you a FREE Report to explain your options and help you decide on a course of action. The idea of losing a home can be overwhelming, and I feel it is vital for you to have all the facts necessary to make an informed decision.
It has been an absolute honor working with Stephanie Anson. Stephanie is professional, prompt, and truly has the heart of a teacher. We knew nothing about the short sale process. In fact, because of our previous home buying experience, we were pretty skeptical we would meet a realtor we could rely on and trust.
From the first time she came to our home, Stephanie was able to put us at ease. Before we agreed to work with her, Stephanie offered to hold a free workshop simply to explain the short sale process. She was incredibly patient and answered all of our questions (over and over again). She was able to connect her knowledge of the industry with her own personal experience and the experiences of past clients.
She gave us incredible counsel when it came to showing our home. When we saw the listing live on the Internet we were amazed at how gorgeous it looked. Several potential buyers thought it was awesome too because we got an offer less than five days after viewing. Throughout the process we were kept in the loop and always knew the best case and worse case scenarios. We were prepared for anything.
There was no doubt that Stephanie always had our best interest in mind. We are so thankful to her because she has helped us get from under the burden of this upside down mortgage. The job she did for us literally changes our life for the better.
Thank you Stephanie!

Stephanie is one of the hardest working, trust worthy and honest realtors in the business. I was faced with a short sale scenario and she worked so hard for me in my time of distress. She was courteous to me and was very efficient and on the ball when it came to listing my place as well as very aggressive when it came to dealing with the bank. She never let it rest and was diligent in gettting the correct answers. Her knowledge and experience with short sales is second to none and if you are faced with this unfortunate situation know that getting Stephanie Anson on your side will ONLY help you in the end. She really cut out a lot of the red tape in the process caused by the banks. She also spends tireless hours working for you for free. I would and do recommend Stephanie to many of my friends and aquaintances that are looking for someone to be on their side during this trying time.
Stephanie was essential in the process of closing my short sale purchase. She is extremely knowledgable and perfectly aggressive. We heard many horror stories about short sale purchases, but ours could not have gone more smoothly. I don't have one single complaint and have already recommended Stephanie to friends. I definitely hope she is around in a few years when we are ready to upgrade. :)

Stephanie is a very professional realtor that takes the customer's needs first. Her impressive knowledge coupled with the outstanding service she delivers, assists in making the home buying process really pleasant experience. In reality, very different from the standard realtor that only thinks about the commissions; she is a true professional!!!! I highly recommend her.
