Most short sales don’t take a year to close. Bank of America held the FHA mortgage and it was a “pre-approved” short sale. There are no words to describe how challenging this particular sale was to complete. In the end, I was able to get Bank of America to finally approve the Short Sale, and to the delight of my Seller-Client who was facing huge financial distress if this sale didn’t close. Read my Seller’s comments below:
Dolores is the ultimate professional. A total fighter… Here’s my story… I had a 1100 square foot ranch in St. Clair Shores. The house required a lot of work. Drive way was so cracked, it looked like gravel. The house was the only house on the block that did not have a garage. My block was completely depressed, with 13 foreclosed properties on the block. I had a $132,000 mortgage on a house that was worth $30,000. I was attempting a short sale, and I found Dolores… To make a year-long story short…. We battled and battled with the bank for almost an entire year. Dolores never waivered…. She always responded to inquires IMMEDIATELY, and this was a job she was making less than a grand on. Even though the monetary rewards weren’t there for her, she treated my account like I was her top customer.
We eventually sold the property, and I personally don’t think it would have ever happened without her. She is one of the most aggressive professionals I have ever met. I will be a client for life. If you have a property you want sold, don’t call anyone but her. You want her on your side!
Thank you so very much Dolores! You’ve had a profound impact on my life!!!
Sincerely, Bill A.
