LAS VEGAS, Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In the distressed Las Vegas housing market, many Realtors and Attorneys are calling themselves short sale experts; however, many of these self-proclaimed experts have little or no experience closing short sale transactions. What criterion constitutes an expert?
A recent report named The Myers Team the #1 Short Sale Realtors in Nevada. Number one status was determined by actual short sale listings closed from January 1, 2007 through December 31, 2011.
According to the report, The Myers Team with the Caliber Realty Group has negotiated more short sale approvals and closed more short sale listing transactions than any Realtor or Broker in Las Vegas. The majority of these closings have been short sales with Bank of America.
The Myers Team is nationally recognized as one of the most influential figures in Real Estate today. According to Myers Team owner, Bill Myers, "Surrendering a home worth half of what you owe is NOT a failure, it's a business decision. A short sale is an opportunity for you and your family to take control and walk away free and clear. Nobody wants to lose their home; however, loan modification doesn't work and there is no need to go down with a sinking ship. Homeowners need to know when to say enough is enough."
Many Realtors proclaim themselves to be short sale experts; however, according to Myers, "A Realtor in Las Vegas can become a Certified Short Sale Expert by attending a one day class at the Board of Real Estate. The ability to be called an expert in any field should be based upon performance and consistent results; not based upon attending an afternoon seminar." Myers added, "This would be the same as declaring yourself a 'home run expert' after attending a one-day baseball class yet never picking up a bat or actually hitting a ball." The Myers Team has continually broken sales records, and when it comes to short sale transactions, they are considered by most experts to be industry leaders.
The Myers Team was an award winning Real Estate team at Century 21 for nine years; however, in 2011 they joined forces with the Caliber Realty Group. According to Myers, "Our Real Estate market has changed; however, most Real Estate companies have not. While most Real Estate Brokers are still learning how to do short sales, the Caliber Realty Group is backed by ownership that has been dealing with Banks and Loss Mitigation Departments for almost three decades." Additionally, Myers said, "A short sale is one of the most complicated transactions in residential Real Estate and experience is everything. If you needed open-heart surgery, would you go to jack of all trades physician, or would you visit a heart specialist? The Caliber Realty Group specializes in short sale transactions. This experience allows Caliber Realty to provide a higher caliber of service and stand out in today's unique Real Estate market."
Bill and Francoise Myers have helped hundreds of Las Vegas families avoid foreclosure. Myers said, "Sellers facing foreclosure must remember that banks are not looking out for you or your family. When you work with The Myers Team, our job is to get between you and the bank. We represent our clients, NOT the banks. It is our job to negotiate the best possible outcome. Ultimately, our job is to take away the stress, and make the transaction as smooth and stress-free as possible."
