Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
Seattle Short Sales (S3), a law firm that specializes in negotiating short sales, invites Washington real estate brokers to participate in a revolutionary seminar that helps homeowners take full advantage of the Washington State Foreclosure Fairness Act (FFA).
How to Use the WA State Foreclosure Fairness Act to Get an Unfair Advantage Over the Banks is part of S3’s Advanced Short Sale Training series. The seminar is scheduled for August 23, 2012, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the Bellefield Office Park Conference Center in Bellevue, WA. Participants will learn how to employ specific FFA techniques that generate quick and astounding results when homeowners are facing short sale deficiencies.
“We’ve closed 80 short sales in the past 90 days. This proven technique, which gets instant attention from the lender, is enabling Pacific Northwest families to make a fresh start in life,” says Ross Kilburn, general manager for S3. “Last month, we helped a Sammamish couple, who had lost their jobs and accrued significant medical expenses, cut a deal with MetLife that fully forgave the $168,657 deficiency between the balanced owed and the purchase price of the short sale.”
During the two-hour seminar, Michele McNeill, a Washington Super Lawyers Rising Star with Skyline Law Group in Bellevue, will teach participants exactly how the remarkable process works. Using real-life examples, McNeil will discuss how real estate brokers can help their clients maximize the time advantage when replying to foreclosure letters. The training will also cover mediation filing requirements, the secret way to access mediation services for free and how to get a short sale unstuck.
S3 has strong, trustworthy partnerships with Washington’s top mortgage institutions, including Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase Bank, Boeing Employees Credit Union, GMAC and Home Street Bank. Homeowners and brokers receive unlimited, complimentary access to knowledgeable real estate attorneys and CPA consultants who specialize in mortgage debt forgiveness. The organization’s negotiation services team are persistent and successful advocates who have generated more than 500 short sale approvals for clients during the past two years.
“S3 was superb in their efforts to get our short sale through all the hoops our lender required,” praises Sammamish real estate brokers Michael and Nicole Pender. “They were diligent and persistent in their efforts to present our case, and they went above the call of duty by turning what was initially a negative response from the lender into an approved sale.”
Advance registration is required to attend the How to Use the WA State Foreclosure Fairness Act to Get an Unfair Advantage Over the Banks seminar. The $20 fee is paid at the door, and a box lunch is provided. The event is limited to 30 participants.
