Why Choose Us?

Short sales are complicated transactions involving a structured multiple step process between the lender(s), the seller, the buyer, and our team. In some short sales, additional parties such as private mortgage insurance companies and loan underwriters may be involved.

Because of the complexity of properly handling a short sale transaction, you need to work with a team that specializes in short sale transactions and will properly handle the transaction from start to finish.

When you work with our team, we are committed to making sure your short sale is handled with expediency and professionalism.

Call us at (404) 257-8717 or (678) 587-8717 to get started with your short sale today!

  • Our team leader, Michael Smith, is accredited by the National Association of REALTORS as a Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR).

  • Our team is a Certified Program Representative with Program 3648,  a privately-sponsored, nationwide initiative to help homeowners avoid foreclosure.

  • We have partnered with a professional short sale processing firm to handle our backend negotiations with mortgage lenders. Our team consists of former bank executives, former mortgage lenders, REALTORS, and professional negotiators.

  • Our short sale services are TOTALLY FREE for homeowners. You never pay a commission or fee to us on a short sale transaction. Our fees are paid by your lender when your short sale closes.

  • We NEVER charge any upfront fees. You never pay us anything out of pocket to handle a short sale!

  • We have proper verbiage in our contracts to protect you in a short sale transaction. Our short sale contracts even allow you to stay in the home from the time it is placed under contract until 3 days after the closing.

  • We have a proven track record of successfully closing short sales and are short sale specialists.

  • We work with short sales for multi-million dollar luxury estate homes to affordable condos - so whether you owe millions of dollars or thousands of dollars to your lender, we can help.

  • When your property is listed, there will not be any embarrassing signs or marketing materials in your yard advertising it as a short sale or foreclosure. Your home will simply appear as a normal listing to your neighbors and anyone driving past your home.
    (Please note that we are required to include short sale verbiage in your listing in the Multiple Listing Service as well as any online listings.)

  • We are active members of the Atlanta Board of REALTORS, the Georgia Board of REALTORS, and the National Association of REALTORS. When choosing someone to help you with a short sale, it's important to remember that the term "real estate agent" and the word "REALTOR" are not synonymous. The term "REALTOR" is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS and abides by its strict Code of Ethics.

  • Your closing is handled by a real estate attorney that specializes in short sales. This helps ensure everything is handled properly with your short sale closing and all lender required terms and conditions are met.

  • We follow up on every showing and gather valuable marketing data that we present to the lender to help get your short sale approved.

  • Your home is actively marketed on all of the top real estate websites including: Realtor.com, Zillow, AtlantaMLS.com, GAMLSHomes.com, Trulia, GoogleBase, Yahoo Classifieds, Cyberhomes, AOL Real Estate, Oodle, Point2Homes, Homescape, Vast, The Housing Pages, House.com, Moving.com and WSBTV.com.

  • Your listing will appear on the websites of all Metro Atlanta real estate firms who provide online MLS listings including: Chapman Hall, Harry Norman, Re/Max, Coldwell Banker, Prudential, Metro Brokers, Century 21, and Keller Williams. We work closely with agents from all local and national real estate firms to ensure your listing reaches the largest pool of potential buyers.

  • Your home is sold as-is and you are not responsible for making repairs.

  • We provide you with a Supra iBox Digital Lockbox for secure Realtor access to your home. This also allows us to track all showings and we use this data to provide detailed activity reports on your short sale to your lender.

  • Each short sale situation is unique and we are able to work with you and your lender in order to get the sale approved as quickly as possible.

  • We have a large group of buyers that work with us to buy short sale homes throughout the metro Atlanta area and may have a buyer ready to purchase your home.

  • We specialize in Fulton County Short Sales, DeKalb County Short Sales, Cobb County Short Sales, Gwinnett County Short Sales, Cherokee County Short Sales, and Forsyth County Short Sales. (If your home is located in a bordering Metro Atlanta county please contact us as we still might be able to assist you.)

  • We can help you avoid foreclosure and bankruptcy, save your credit, and move on with your life without the financial burden of your mortgage.
