Mike Linkenauger (Short Sale Specialist Network)
Mike got his start in Real Estate in 2005 at the young age of 26. He immediately established himself as a top producer in the Jacksonville, FL market, moving into the top 1% of agents his first year in the business. As the Florida housing market became depressed in 2007, Mike shifted his focus and immediately found a calling in assisting home owners with a short sale. In no time he amassed an inventory of over 100 short sale listings and quickly established himself as one of the top short sale agents in the State of Florida. As his online presence grew, homeowners from other parts of Florida began contacting him for guidance with a short sale and to be connected with a local short sale agent.
Seeing a need for home owners in hardship to be connected to local short sale experts on a national level, Mike founded The Short Sale Specialist Network in October 2008. 2010 marked a season of growth for the company with the launch of their online short sale agent social networking site as well as the Certified Short Sale Guide training designation. 2012 marked the launch of the Short Sale Lead Machine website and marketing program for short sale Realtors. The Short Sale Specialist Network has evolved into an organization of over 12,000 agents, manages a portfolio of over 40 short sale related consumer websites, and has assisted tens of thousands of home owners with a short sale.
Due to Mike’s diverse experience in many facets of the Real Estate Industry, he has become a sought after speaker in the real estate industry. He is also known for his annual Cruise / Conference, the Short Sale Symposium at Sea.
