As a licensed real estate agent, Jim Schroeder knows the complexities of the short sale process and how it affects buyers, sellers, agents and brokers.
Due to the changes in the short sale process and attorney ethical concerns, Schroeder Law Group can no longer accept referrals directly from realtors. In order for an attorney at Schroeder Law Group to represent home seller, they must complete a one-hour consultation for $250.
If a client is presently represented by a relator, they may visit Schroeder Law Group a one-hour consultation in which one of our attorneys will review all documents they have, educate them about short sales and answer all of their questions. At the end of the one-hour consultation, the seller is under no obligation to retain any attorney at Schroeder Law Group for further representation and the firm is not obligated to take the client if we do not feel as though we can help them.
As a short sale specialist in Atlantic, Cape May, Gloucester and Burlington counties, home sellers come to our offices weekly for these consultations, and they are not represented by realtors. We will refer these clients out to local agents we are confident in understanding how to represent the short seller’s interest. We are always looking for good agents to create a partnership in any of the counties in South Jersey.
For brokers that are interested in having an expert educate real estate agents about short sales, Schroeder Law Group offers training, office meetings and retreats. Schroeder Law Group can help you identify the training goals of your agency and educate agents as to the best practices for helping distressed homeowners through a short sale.
