Previously represented REO (Bank Repossessions) properties for Countrywide. The assignment began with preparing the BPO (Broker Price Opinion) for the bank’s review. Upon assignment of the listing, my duties included monitoring the property and processing the file. Some files started with the eviction process and establishing  the utilities, and then on to scheduling any clean up and necessary repairs. Once the property was ready, it went on the MLS and was marketed for sale. Upon receiving an offer, I was able to negotiate the offer and work with the other agent to successfully close the escrow.


More recently, I have represented many short sales and pre-foreclosure sales with a 99% success rate. These distress sales took from 45 days to over a year to close, requiring a tremendous amount of patience and follow-up. I have represented both sellers and buyers in closing short sales. I understand the system and the process.


In 2012 I was retained to prepare an expert witness evaluation and report for the rental value of a $3 million property in Pasadena. This involved researching and extrapolating data to prepare a detailed analysis and report, and to serve as an expert witness if called to trial.
