I am a disabled Veteran with Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. Because of these medical disabilities, I was forced to retire. I could not climb stairs and needed a walker to move around, The home I was in could not be modified to address my mobility issues. I need a place that could accommodate a wheel chair and had no stairs. I needed to sell my Salinas home.
Due to the economic downturn, I owed more on the home than market value. I made some inquiries to find out who was the best and most aggressive relator specializing in distress property sales. After a few phone calls, I hired Sharon Shaw- Flores from Realty World Premier Associates. She had certifications in both distressed property and negotiations and I knew Sharon was up to the challenge. My mortgage was with U.S. Bank. This financial institution has a reputation for being tough on foreclosures and short sales. I knew I had to have the best to make this sale happen.
Sharon went to work and helped me fill out papers for a short sale and concurrently got a buyer for my property. The bank dragged their feet and kept losing documents. Sharon stayed on top of the application with daily phone calls and additional duplicate copy faxes. She also made daily checks on the property and kept me informed on all property related issues. The bank continued to stall for more time and seemed unresponsive to the short sale application. Sharon went the extra mile and contacted our congressman (Sam Farr’s office) to see if they could speed up the short sale application. With this effort, the bank finally approved the short sale. Even with the approval, the home had a $67,000 lien on the title. A previous lender had failed to file a conveyance to remove the lien. Sharon worked with the title company and lien holder to remove the lien. She was successful in all efforts and the short sale closed on March 27, 2014.
I chose the right Realtor. Sharon Shaw-Flores got the outcome I needed despite roadblocks along the way. She worked with a difficult bank, spent hours and hours of time faxing documents, managed my Salinas property, and communicated with me in a professional manner on all issues. Most Realtor's would have given up, but Sharon never stopped until the sale process was complete.
Consequently, I strongly recommend Sharon Shaw-Flores for all of your real estate needs. Sharon is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. I was impressed with her strong work ethic and her ability to get things done.Sharon gave me excellent advice and this contributed to our success. She knew what to do and succeeded in closing a very difficult short sale. I would hire Sharon again. Sharon is a great negotiator and will always work for the best outcome.
