The Short Sale Specialist Team: We Work For You, Not The Bank


While it’s true that we have all the major banks “on speed dial” it must be stated that we work for you, not the bank. As short sale specialists we represent you, our clients and our legal obligation and duty is to serve our clients honestly and in good faith. We serve all of rural Clackamas County from Molalla and Canby north to Boring and Sandy. We’re proud to be part of the Oregon Realty Company family and we take our firm’s almost seven decades of service to our community very seriously.

Banks have professional bill collectors working for them 24/7, isn’t it time you had short sale Realtor professional representation on your side?

Sellers Don't Pay us: We're Compensated Out of The Bank's Settlement


We don’t charge sellers or buyers for our short sale specialist services. We are paid a normal real estate commission out of the bank’s proceeds at closing. Our commitment to quality means we negotiate all of our short sales in house and never outsource which means the job gets done right. Some other Realtors around Sandy, Beavercreek & Molalla, Oregon outsource the short sale negotiations and many times this results in extra middle-man fees for buyers and sellers. We never charge these extra fees because we work directly for our clients and have lower overhead than the middlemen who outsource. Extra fees scare away buyers and overly burden sellers. Call us when you’re ready for professional, no nonsense Clackamas County short sale specialists to represent your best interests.

Reduce/Eliminate Mortgage Debt, Regain Financial Independence


Clackamas County residents from Molalla to Canby, Sandy to Boring, and Carver to Estacada have all found positive win-win solutions by completing a short sale. We represent your needs to the bank and show the bank how it’s in their best interest to accept a lower payoff than the full mortgage balance because the property just can’t sell for enough to pay off the debt. Banks are eager to reach a settlement because the foreclosure process means the bank has lengthy and costly legal fees associated with foreclosure. Additionally, when a bank forecloses the bank is stuck with the bill for fixing all the problems and paying for maintenance until the house finally sells. For these reasons it’s a win-win for the bank to agree to forgive the debt in exchange for selling the house at a reduced price. Banks would much rather get some of their money back over foreclosing and bearing the cost of owning the house. Additionally, many of the banks which received federal bail-out money are required to consider short sales and forgive debt in return for the bank receiving taxpayer money during the recession.

Short sale approvals from the major banks report mortgage debt as settled in full with no balance owing on mortgages used to secure a primary residence (certain types of personal lines of credit attached to houses that fall under different guidelines, call for details). It should be noted that we are not attorneys or financial advisers but as short sale specialists we can tell you in general terms of the short sale approvals that we get for our clients. When we get your short sale approval, we’re happy to read it over together with you so you’re satisfied with the terms.
