Realtor Responds To Wave Of Short Sales And Foreclosures

COOKEVILLE, TN., – As more and more real estate sales involve buyers and sellers dealing with properties heading for foreclosure or already foreclosed on by the bank – many licensed Realtors have been forced to ?change their approach’ in order to adapt to this new ?traditional’ real estate transaction.


Crye-Leike, REALTORS Cookeville Broker Judd-Christian Dyle recently completed a new Short Sale & Foreclosure course offered by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). He now feels better equipped with both the tools and ?know how’ to help sellers maneuver and negotiate the complexities of short sales as well as help buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.


“We are facing the most challenging market of most of our lifetimes and as a result Realtors have to adapt and change with the market to rise to the challenges facing our area homeowners,” said Judd-Christian Dyle.  “I obtained this new short sale and foreclosure designation to be a resource to homeowners.”


Now armed with his new Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource (SFR) certification from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Dyle is NAR certified to qualify sellers, negotiate with lenders, limit risks and protect buyers.


“I can help them wade through the short sale process, discuss loan modification, help them understand the options that they have when they become unable to make their mortgage payments or just need to sell due to a relocation,” said Dyle. “I can also help investors and everyday buyers work through the process of buying foreclosed properties, advise them of the risks and pitfalls and tell them how to construct a winning offer.”


As a SFR Certified Realtor, Dyle has successfully completed all the required prerequisite and program course work to become a National Association of Realtors qualified Short Sales & Foreclosures (SFR) Specialist.
