Heaven Must be Missing a Short Sale Angel

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Real Estate Cafe LLC

Short Sale AngelHeaven must be missing a Short Sale Angel.  I just got off the phone with a Short Sale Negotiator from Chase, who must have been sent to me from heaven.  He was kind, he was considerate, he was helpful, he was informative, he was funny... and just plain heavenly.  He gave me his direct line (which never happens) and he said to call him any time.  Any time?  Obviously, he doesn't know this chicky is nocturnal ;)

This particular listing has had three offers over the past 8 months, all of which were countered by Chase at a ridiculous price ($50K over real market value) due to some funky BPOs.  All of the buyers have walked as a result.  When the Short Sale Negotiator Angel mentioned the next step was to order a new BPO, I asked what agent he'd be contacting from La La Land to complete it ;)  He said... 'Oh... La La Land, is that the far, far away place where no one lives?'  I said, 'Exactly!'  And then we both laughed.  OMG... a Short Sale Negotiator Angel with a sense of humor!

I told him of my Short Sale troubles, and he listened.  That was a wow!  I have to say... in this moment, my faith in Short Sale Negotiators Angels has been restored.  There is a God... and I think He called me today from Chase ;)

A few years back we attended a Star Wars Wedding.  Everyone was in full star wars regalia, except this one dude (friend of the bride) who came in a white bird constume (similar to the picture.  His wings were closed, and he wore a white one piece leotard, and when he opened his wings, the span was impressive.  He had won first prize in SF at the Hookers' Ball (a benefit for the oldest profession in the world), and so he came complete with an incredible headpiece.  We have the picture in storage somewhere.  Now, I will have to get it when we move.

I love that Chase saw the wisdom of talking to a real expert, who may have a guiding angel around her.  A

I was thinking the same thing about your photos for your posts. irresistible pancakes yesterday - and now this lovely bird man. ( I just can't call him an angel, that makes me feel creepy).  However, with that said, you got my attention.

Oh and yes, there's something about short sales - right? 

Glad you got a good guy with a sense of humor. You must have a little yellow sunshine hanging over your head at all times...I swear you got it going on. I'll have what you're having...

Mimi ~ Does your husband know what you're up to during regular business hours?  Devil girl ;)

I'm not sure I'm getting your smile Gary... was it THE ANGEL?  You are one brave male to join this thread of females!

Sharon ~ There's a lot of smiling going on around here... even Gary is smiling ;)

Suuuurrrrre Gayle!  You know you just wanna look at the pic... you two-bit hussy.... funny girl ;)

I would love to see the pic Alexandra (and so would Gayle!).  Anyone who has the ___s to get that naked... has my vote!

Jeepers Creepers Debb... that's about as Angelic as it gets!  I'm sipping something sweet honey, but I'll share ;)

Mel, it is really nice to have your faith restored, but I wouldn't get to use to the good fortune...next week will be a new trainee - with an attitude.

Hi Mel, 1) this post should have been "women Only"  2) A zoom-in capability with the photo would have been a plus  3) You are a very generous friend to share.

Looks like a promising situation here for your short sale.  Good luck.

Welcome another brave male!  Are you raining on my angelic parade Steve?  You are currently surrounded by the female variety... put your hands up and surrender...now!

Ellie ~ I thought about that for a nano-second before I hit the post button... but then I said... what the heck... gotta have some fun with this one ;)

Hopefully next time I call Chase, I can get this guy. I've been dealing with one for a year with 5 different offers and thanks to their counter offers, we have had everyone of them walk.

Ah Mel, no longer do I fear death,... <longing sigh,...> 

Okay woman, I have been cracking up at your comments all over the rain and just had to pop in to see if your blogs are half as good as your comments. 

And this is the first one I see?  NICE!!! If you were a fisherman, that was the perfect bait!

Ahhh Krista... my cute little mini-me friend... I knew you'd want his number... so I asked for it just for YOU!  Hey, what's with the name change chicka?

Kristine ~ You sweet devil girl... I don't think you're going to be needing his number any time soon... with that gorgeous hunk o' monk that's been hanging on your arm for the last 7 years!

Mel, considering the blog I just posted about short sales, I am happy to know that short sale angels do exist after all.
