Nationally Recognized Online Designation Course Teaches Any Agent How To Be More Successful With Short Sales – Guaranteed or Your Money Back.

The real estate market has changed.  Lenders have tightened their belts and now it’s much harder for people to get a loan to buy a home.  Not to mention the fact that more and more people who bought in the last 5 years are now getting into financial hardship and need help.  Are you empowered and knowledgeable about this large market and how to serve it?

If you want to know how to earn more commissions during a down market, if you want to separate yourself from other agents, then this may be the single most important course you’ll take this year.

For an active professional, learning about short sales and foreclosures has become a prudent and necessary move.


Why Should You Become a Short Sale and Foreclosure Specialist?

The housing market is different.  Gone are the days when anyone could get financing for a home.  People who may have over extended themselves now need help.  This creates a tremendous opportunity and responsibility for real estate agents who understand the “in’s and out’s” of the short sale process.

The biggest problem with short sales transactions is knowing if a deal will be successful.  This course is unique because we show you how to pre-screen and select which short sales will be successful before investing a ton of effort.  Plus, this course teaches you how to work short sales just like the experts do everyday.  You’ll know how to make the process systemized, streamlined, and super easy.


Learn Exactly How an Active Agent Achieves an 80% Closing Rate - All With Fair Market Offers!

During this online course you’ll follow along from the convenience of your office or home and have a front row seat to a full-day seminar with short sale expert Jacob Swodeck.

For the past eleven years Mr. Swodeck has been in the trenches as an active agent processing and negotiating short sale and pre-foreclosure transactions.  His expertise comes from being a manager of a high volume short sale negotiating company and then as an active agent in the field dealing with a wide spectrum of clients and situations on a daily basis.

Specializing exclusively on short sales and pre-foreclosures, Mr. Swodeck has built a successful business, compiled a wealth of knowledge and developed innovative strategies and techniques which he has shared with thousands of agents during his seminars.

Over the years I’ve heard plenty of speakers … but none like Jacob.  He speaks in a down-to-earth manner, he’s hilarious and most importantly, he’s a short sale guru!  I trust him completely with my agents.  He has imparted a hope, focus and compassion to our office, which is rare for the market condition we are in.
