Top Tampa Bay-Area Law Firm and Major Real Estate Group Form Partnership to Help Clients with Mortgage Difficulties
TAMPA BAY, Fla., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Yesner & Boss, one of Central Florida's top real estate law firms, has signed an agreement to represent clients of 15 area offices of Prudential Tropical Realty in a wide range of financial problems afflicting residential property owners.
Under the agreement, Yesner & Boss, P.L. (http://www.yesnerboss.com/) will become corporate counsel for offices of Prudential Tropical located all over the Tampa Bay area, including St. Petersburg, Temple Terrace, Brandon and the Pinellas Beaches. The real estate offices will refer their clients who need help with foreclosure defense, short-sale negotiations, asset protection and strategies, and consumer protection.
"The goal of Yesner & Boss and Prudential Tropical (http://www.prutropical.com/) is the same, to help property owners stay in their homes and work their way out of mortgage difficulties to which the current market is subjecting a lot of people," said Christopher Boss, a partner in the law firm.
Prudential Tropical Realty is a locally owned company that opened its first office 50 years ago. It now has offices throughout Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco and Hernando Counties.
"In combining our skills and experience with the success history of Yesner & Boss, we have created a team of specialists for our clients, elevating the quality of service we can offer to Tampa Bay area homeowners," said Rob Hilliker, vice president of sales and marketing for Prudential Tropical.
While foreclosure rates are dropping nationally - many believe this is because the majority of troubled mortgages already have foreclosure filings against them - Florida has nearly 60,000 residential properties in foreclosure, which ranks the state either second or third, depending on which real estate tracking company is keeping score. Within Florida, the Tampa Bay region is one of the mostly heavily beset by foreclosures and short sales.
"While there are signs of life flickering in the residential real estate market, it is a long way from flourishing," said Boss. "And improvement will not be significant until foreclosures return to normal numbers and the backlog of foreclosed properties is cleared. There is, unfortunately, still a lot of work to be done out there."
