We take time out to honor and be grateful.  Lori Carrero is a new comer to the business but she sure doesn't look like it.  She handles herself like a professional, she talks real estate fluently and follows up with her leads like a veteran agent.  With under 3 months into the Real Estate World at EXCEL Realty Associates, she closed on her very first deal (under 2 months).  Though Lori is going through some tough trials, being the true Woman of God that she is, she handles her family, her ailing father, her career and her Worship Ministry at her church.

Thanks Lori, and may God continue to bless you and your family and of course your Real Estate Career at EXCEL Realty Associates.  Love, Papabear and Sherri.

Maria Medina, 2nd Top Producer at EXCEL REALTY ASSOCIATES, 2016.  She actually closed the year with a bang.  A double header which she Listed and Sold.  In one week she found a house suitable for her buyer, attained the listing and sold it to them in one day.  It closed December 30, 2016.  A hefty commission for this Top Producer.

What I want people to understand is that she not only listed and sold she "conducted/orchestrated" this deal like no one we know. There were electrical issues, she found an Electrician and stayed with them till it was resolved.  There was a Huge Plumbing Issue and she got a plumber and stayed with it for a few days while it was resolved.  Ready for closing and tenant has no place to go , gives seller a hard time.  Maria jumps

Many home owners are so confused about Short Sales that they, eventually hurt themselves.  The "Debt Forgiveness Act" has been extended, making it easier to do a Short Sale with less headaches and worries.  Of course it is always recommended that you speak to an Attorney and or a CPA before committing yourself to a Short Sale.  Keep in mind that on a Short Sale, Attorney and Real Estate as well as the Short Sale Negotiator are paid at the closing by the Bank, not you (The Seller). In most cases the seller also gets an incentive (Check) for moving Expenses.

We have both (Attorney and CPA) available for you, if you need one,   this way you can make a more educated decision.  But please, remember that choosing the right Real Estate is just as important.
