Get to know Mike Shearer
The Good House People and Colonial Real Estate Group are the exclusive real estate agents for LiveFairfaxCounty.com. Our company evolved as a result of 25 years of investing in Northern Virginia residential real estate. I was helping homeowners in foreclosure or significant financial distress long before the housing meltdown in 2007. As an investor, my company has some terrific programs in place which will ensure that a homeowner who no longer can afford their mortgage will leave with a lot more equity (cash) than if they lose the property to foreclosure.
Once the economy crashed, I saw that my skill set could also be useful to homeowners who are in danger of losing their homes because they could no longer afford to keep them. Since I already had my real estate license for the past 12 years, I learned everything I could about home retention and short sales. I am a certified Home Retention Consultant as well as a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE). I am also a Certified REO expert and a Short Sale Expert
If there’s a chance that you can stay in your home, I can help you. If there’s no chance of you keeping the property, I can minimize the long-term financial impact to you and your family. In most cases, you can sell your home – at a big loss to the bank – without the bank pursuing the deficiency. This means that once you sell the house, you are done. There are no taxes to pay and no more payments to the bank.
I have developed an excellent team of expert professionals that serve Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. We have an extensive knowledge of each of the micro markets we serve. My Colonial Real Estate Group office is headquartered Alexandria, Virginia. We have offices in Richmond and Virginia Beach as well. We have done hundreds of closings over the past 7 years, and we would welcome the opportunity to serve you as well!
If you or anybody you know wants to buy, sell or invest in real estate, please give me a call. My team has a saying, “If you allow me into your living room, I’ll be your real estate agent for life!”
