Alexandria VA Listing Agent Graduates From Harris Real Estate University Specializing In Short Sales
Tamara Inzunza, a veteran Realtor with McEnearney Associates, Inc. in Alexandria, VA has earned the prestigious Harris Real Estate University Accredited Short Sale Designation (ASD), having completed extensive training in negotiating and closing Short Sales. This expertise is invaluable at a time when the nation’s housing market is devastated by millions of distressed home owners thrust into the foreclosure process.
The Short Sale of a property allows the distressed owner, through their Realtor, to find a buyer willing to purchase their home before they are forced into the foreclosure process. The owner can then use proceeds to repay their lender, even if the amount is less than what they actually owe on the property. In the current economy, nearly all lenders are willing to consider Short Sales because they are less costly and time-consuming than foreclosures.
“The Harris Real Estate University ASD designation has been invaluable as I work with sellers and lenders on complicated Short Sales. The best action against foreclosure is Short Sale, if a loan modification is no longer an option,” said Inzunza, “It is so rewarding to be able to help families save their homes from foreclosure.”
Tim and Julie Harris, founders of the Harris Real Estate University in Las Vegas, NV, said “Realtors like Tamara Inzunza with the HREU ASD designation have valuable training in Short Sales and can offer homeowners a better alternative to foreclosure, which inevitably destroys their credit rating and prevents them from having the ability to purchase a new home for seven years. Through our in-depth training and continuous education programs, these agents are trained to aggressively seek sellers and buyers using our extensive marketing techniques.” Inzunza also received training and earned the Certified HAFA Speciliast and Luxury Distressed Property Designation. "McEnearney Associates is a recognized leader in luxury home sales in Alexandria VA and throughout Northern Virginia and DC. I wanted to bring this value to my company so that my colleagues can continue to maintain the relationships they have with their existing clients, and have a company specialist who can provide confidential service to luxury homeowners in distress."
The Harris Real Estate University opened in 1998, and provides Distressed Property Agent training through webinars, teleseminars and teleconferencing. Agents can earn their Short Sale Listing designation remotely from their offices all across the nation. The HREU ASD is the premier designation for Realtors who want to specialize in helping distressed home owners.
“Our goal is to prepare agents enrolled in the program for the increasingly competitive Short Sale market. It’s becoming more difficult for uncertified agents to out-sell and out-perform our graduates. Our comprehensive Short Sale Certification gives them everything they need to gain an edge over other agents in their service areas and to provide the assistance that distressed homeowners need,” Harris said.
