America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals
They are requesting a $399 sign-up fee plus take a class for approval. They have partnered with ServiceLink. Any thoughts on these guys? Has anyone had any experience with them?
It looks like they are managing Citi assets and maybe others.
I signed up with Short Sale Specialist Network 5 months ago and paid the fee and at least once a month a would call and the membership department would tell me that it was very rare that there were NO SHORT SALES coming through their website for Maryland. I was even setup for most of the state so i would get the next Short Sale. After 4 months and the same response, i asked for my money back and they did credit me back my sign up fee. I just don't get it, Short Sale Specialists is recommended by Reopro and Harris Real Estate and they did not come through on their promise except for refunding the sign up fee!
Shawneequa, I was a premium member with Partner First almost from the beginning (about 2 and 1/2 years). I got no leads. They did have good training at the beginning and later they didn't offer additional webinars or anything. Just Tweets. I use to sale foreclosures for Servicelink (3 years). They were a good company to work with. They suggested I join Partner First when foreclosures started winding down. I did. It just never really took off. They did do files for Fannie...that didn't turn into a large scale program. They are doing some now for a lender based in Orange County Ca. Some of those are serviced by B of A. The company is Impac Mortgage. If they have loans in your area you might get some. They aren't in my area. I just decided to quit with Partner First. I didn't get anything but good training and that was helpful but that was just during they first year or so. After that that was it. I think their model didn't take off. I don't think it is going to take off now for sure since there are fewer short sales now than then and lenders have moved toward dealing with their distressed properties themselves rather than farming it out to the Partner Firsts of the world. At least Mike's company deals with short sales one at a time and help you to do that. His web site for agents is the best out there. I'm just getting mine going and it's pretty much up to me to see how many leads I can create. It is work and you have to do it everyday (build your SEO to where your on the first page). With the Lead Machine you get a great lead capture site! I'd stick with that....I guess I have...lol Check out my Lead Machine SantaBarbara-ShortSale-Specialist.com See I'm building my SEO right here. That's the way it works.
