Bio:

I am the Broker/Owner of New Neighbor Realty, LLC in Brockton, MA. I have a very successful working relationship with you and Chase Bank, Bank of America, RES.NET, Meridian Asset, Aurora Loan Services, IClear, HomEq, Fannie Mae, RMS and CLMG Mortgage. I am also the Master Broker for US REO Partners in Massachusetts. Over the past 8½ years I have focused a team of agents, assistants and contractors specifically for marketing, maintenance, reporting & sales of REO and HUD properties. I have streamlined a complete process from Cash for Keys to closings. Accuracy, completeness, knowledge and timeliness are proven in my work. I currently have several full-time licensed and experienced Real Estate agents on my team along with three assistants. Other specialists are available if needed, including constables, maintenance personnel, electricians, plumbers, mold removal professionals, contractors, movers, cleanouts and clerical staff. Because there are many areas with diverse cultures, I have translators on staff and on call for several different languages. I am also a licensed Real Estate Instructor in Massachusetts. As an instructor, I keep current with the latest rule changes, updates to regulations and Real Estate laws.

My record with REO properties currently is an average of 22 days on market and in 39% of these properties I have personally brought the buyer in. One reason for my quick turnover and high buyer percentage is that I immediately start to pre-market the properties. I maintain an active and still-growing e-mail list of buyers, agents and investors to get the information out fast, which brings in several interested parties prior to the property going on the market. A “COMING SOON” sign is posted on the property with my office contact information. We collect buyers’ information from these phone calls and show them the properties as soon as the property becomes available. On average I get an additional 5 to 10 buyers interested for each property just from posting the “COMING SOON” signs.
