Has anyone heard of this company or currently doing work for them? Are they legit? They contacted me with a listing they can assign me once I get "certified" with them. The rep said they use their own platform and require agents to take an online certification test before placing any assignments...all for a $300 fee. A week or so ago I was signing up on some new sites and did sign up with them prompting their call...However, I can't remember now how I learned about them in the first place. I do BPO's for multiple companies and have never paid a dime, now just getting into REOs, but don't think I should have to pay to get started.
Would love your feedback
Ive never heard of them......& Ive been around for a few minutes..... I would wait till you get other responses from here b-4 you pay out any $$$$...
Take Care! Rose
AGENTS BEWARE! BANKER REO IS OUT THERE DOING THE EXACT SAME SCAM UNDER THE COMPANY NAME FootprintsRE
Watch this NEW 2-minute video PROVING that Banker REO and FootprintRE are the exact same company!
Don't fall for the FootprintsRE SCAM! FootprintsRE is not and REO Asset Management Company, nor are they even a REAL company!! They are just doing the same, exact scam they did as Banker REO, and before that as Absolute REO (ABS REO)
Share this video exposing them on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google + and help it get VIRAL!
Join the LinkedIn Group to get them shut down - http://www.linkedin.com/groups/BankerREO-FRAUD-4535629
thanks for the great info
Ask them to provide you a list of agents they work with and then call them. Verify the fact that they are indeed licensed real estate agent by checking with that state's Real Estate Commission.
Every few months we see people coming in here asking the same thing. And one pattern I have seen many times over are new companies wanting up front fees in exchange for a listing. Most have proven to be scams. Not saying this one is, ever heard of them before now. My question is why do they have their own unique platform you have to use? Are there not many "platforms" out there proven to work? Why create another new one?
Banker REO Again? When I was reading her post, I was thinking of that company...
Thank you to everyone who has provided their input.
Here is an update:
Last week when I posted the original question here, I also posted on a Group on LinkedIn. I have not found anyone who has experience with them. I also checked to see when they registered with the state and the LLC was formed in Nov 2012, so not the 2 years the rep says in his answers below. At the same time I also sent the rep an email asking lots of questions. Here is what I asked and his answers so you can form your own opinion.
Can you send me a copy of your Master Agreement for REO listings
A good way to help stop it is the in the words FootPrintsRE Scam a few times on THIS page. Then, go to Google and type in the word "Footprints RE Scam". Two things will happen. First, THIS page will start showing up VERY high on search results for that keyword phrase because that phrase is on this page many times. THEN, because you typed in that exact phrase several times into the search engines, in the future, as soon as somebody STARTS to type in "FootprintsRE..." to research that company, then Google Autocomplete on searches will have the keyword phrase "FootprintsRE Scam" right at the top!
Try it, it works! Just go type in "Footprints RE Scam" a few times into Google and you will be helping to STOP these people! Also, share this on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn to get the word out.
Together we can make a difference!
And just so you guys know, on my forum, agents attest that their website is basically exactly the same as Banker REO's site. They did this before when they were Absolute REO as well.
Look what I Got from footprints...

You Too! I just got one as well!
Lets ask them to address the ABOVE questions, since she is ready this forum.
Christina, if Footprints RE is NOT a scam, please answer the following questions and I'll take back everything.
1.) Above, Cristy Janas claims that your representative claims you have been in business for over two years. If that is true, why does the State say you were just registered in November of 2012?
2.) Why does your website look almost the same as Banker REO?
3.) Why did this agent over on this forum get an email from you from "Banker REO54" email account if you were NOT recently doing similar business practices as Banker REO? http://www.theshortsaleguide.com/forum/topics/footprintsre-bankerreo
Please note that this statements is NOT a "false, defamatory, constitute tortuous interference with business", nor is it even a statement for that matter. It is just meant to give YOU the chance to clear the air in a public forum.
Answer these questions, please...
Watch this video! Check out the former Banker REO website, which forwarded over to the Footprints-re.com website at the time this video was made, which has the exact same header and content as Footprintsre.com. This video WILL provide us with legal evidence to protect US, and will show a tie between the two if we ever need it. We must stand for something or we'll fall for anything!
