Real Estate Rescue buys distressed residential properties for cash. Claydon and Westphal are among the company’s first licensees.

Jim Claydon and Chris Westphal of Sarasota have been named licensees of Real Estate Rescue, a Florida-based company which buys homes for cash, it was announced today.

Claydon and Westphal have operated a Sarasota-based pre-foreclosure business, Shore To Shore Realty, for a number of years.

Dane Marshlack, Real Estate Rescue’s president, said Claydon and Westphal’s Real Estate Rescue license agreement will allow them to buy homes for cash anywhere in Florida.

“I’ve known and done business with Jim and Chris for some time, and they are very knowledgeable real estate professionals,” Marshlack said. “They will make a great contribution to Real Estate Rescue.”

Claydon said Real Estate Rescue will help identify and market the services that he and Westphal already offer, and should help put them in touch with people throughout Tampa Bay who need to sell their homes quickly and for cash.

“Real Estate Rescue is an exciting brand, and it will help put a face on our business,” Claydon said. “This is a business that can be a little hard to describe to others, but people who are experiencing problems and need to sell their homes for cash need to know that we are here, and that we are ready and willing to help.”

Marshlack said the Real Estate Rescue licensing agreement with Claydon and Westphal became effective March 1.

Real Estate Rescue buys homes from homeowners who, for one reason or another, need a fast cash transaction. There are many reasons for such a need -- perhaps the homeowner is going through an unfortunate divorce, has experienced a recent death in the family, has to deal with an urgent job transfer, or perhaps has simply run into some bad luck that has resulted in a threatened bankruptcy or foreclosure.

In some other cases, the property in question may have simply become too run down to sell, and money for repairs is not available.

Real Estate Rescue can buy properties for cash within a few days – often as quickly as 48 hours from the time the homeowner first picks up the phone and calls 1-800-RESCUE-911. It buys homes in all price ranges, from modest cottages to multi-million-dollar waterfront estates.

“We understand that the people who call us have urgent needs, and are often dealing with circumstances that require fast and fair action on our part,” Marshlack said. “When people call us, we make them an urgent priority -- we swing into action to get the transaction done as quickly as possible.”

Marshlack first got into the house-buying business in Tampa Bay as one of the earliest franchisees of a national company that specializes in the fast purchase of homes. But Marshlack sold his franchise in 2005 in order to found Real Estate Rescue.

“We are happy to buy homes that have problems, and homes that can’t be sold in conventional ways,” Marshlack said. “Real Estate Rescue means that people have an alternative to the more traditional home-selling track. We are discreet, and we can usually close in less than a week.”
