Active Rain Family Does it Again--This Time With Short Sales!


I LOVE Debe Maxwell. OK I promise I did not pay her to write this post. In fact, I had completely missed it until today. Better late than never!!! That applies to Short Sale Basics too. You can join in at anytime. The entire 5 part series is being recorded on MP3.

No matter when you show up you'll be on time. If High School would have worked like that I may have stayed!!

If you want to register just send Wendy or me an email at or click on the registration button in my side bar.

OK......enjoy Debe's post. I did!


Active Rain Family Does it Again--This Time It's Short Sales!

Short SalesI had the honor of participating in the first of a five-part series on Short Sales with Bryant Tutus & Wendy Rulnick and the class was absolutely wonderful!  As you all know, I've been very fortunate to live in an area that did not have the 'bubble' to burst but, the national economy has slowly but, surely 'trickled down' to Charlotte!  We had never even heard of short sales in 2007 and now, we are seeing them--and we need HELP!

Bryant (aka BB--TLW's 'other-half'!) and Wendy, fellow Active Rain members, have offered a five-part "Short Sale Basics" course via webinar at a very affordable price.  They have both been participating in short sales for many years and together, share a wealth of knowledge that they're freely sharing with us!  
Okay, it's not really 'free!'   

After some guidance with my first few short sales from TLW, I realized that anything and everything that I could get my hands on that related to short sales was of utmost importance for my very-near-future--and my clients.  With the wave of short sales hitting our area now, it has become increasingly stressful to watch agents who don't have a CLUE, list short sales and then have them turn into nightmares--not only for the sellers but, the buyers who are patiently waiting lender approval--that never seems to come to fruition.

I would just like to thank Broker Bryant & Wendy for so generously sharing their knowledge and helping those of us who do want to become perficient in this process, succeed--and, of course, TLW for getting me started until class was in 'session!'  You guys are awesome!

Mrsiter TLW,


I never excepted you to let any one down, once again you proved me right. Keep up the good work, from what I read there are allot of good people needing help and understanding.

All our best to you and the Ravened/

Hi Bryant!  AHH, TLW may have a thing or two to say about that STRONG word, 'love,' that you used!!  HA!  And, should we discuss that paycheck?! 

Seriuosly, I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am so thankful that you have put this together for those of us who are in desperate need of the knowledge to properly assist these clients.  Finding the best solution for them is so important and I appreciate you and Wendy (AND TLW, of course!) sharing your experience and vast knowledge on the subject so generously.

Have a great day...

Great information; if we only could have had a crystal ball. I was negotiating short sales in the 90's and the banks thought I was calling there bluff. This is a market that is going to stay for sometime and it's nice that everyone has a great teacher in you.The commercial portfolio short sales are really a pleasant time. Say hello to that charming wife of yours for me.Happy Fourth

It's very powerful when a 'Rainer like Deb Maxwell that we all know and trust provides a 3rd party endorsement your training. Go BB and Wendy!
