America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals
I received an email this morning stating my application to become a Home Retention Consultant Trainee was accepted, and that I should log-in and begin the application process, which involves an application fee (only $50-so far), quizzes and background check. I started to begin the process but thought I should first consult with you all here. Has anyone else received this email? What do you know about this company?
Amalia, I can certainly understand your frustration with feeling like a bill collector. I enjoy the satisfaction of helping people so my approach will definitely NOT be similar to a bill collector. I want struggling homeowners to know they have options, and if I am able to get a BPO/listing (paid of course) along the way, that will be just great!
What part of the country are you in?
Kasey, I am the bad guy here, if you want to help homeowner in distress, I am sure there are several non-profits out there, where you can get a decent salary and benefits, then you can help lots of homeowners in trouble and even future home owners.
I do real estate for a living, I am ethical, fair and nice to my clients and everybody, but I need to put food on the table and a roof over my head. I want to make sure that what I am doing is worth it for my living. In my opinion Titanium is not worth it. I can get pay more doing bpos and I don't have to worry about visiting a house 3 or more times. And maybe there are some short sale listings, but who knows if they ever close, and then you probably have to pay titanium a referral fee on top of that.
Don't take me wrong I do charity work, and I give time to causes that I think are worthy, that is my believe and I do it on my own accord, but I don't mix that with business.
Best of luck with Titanium, I hope you can thrive with them.
There are already threads and membership under Titanium. Some of the issues are: Who is going to give you date of their birth & year required to get paid for $50 max? That is most you may get doing door knocking 3X. I have completed a dozen warm transfers typ thru persistence going 5 or 6 times.
They encourage you to go get short sale and take a cut of the commission. I got one. From 1 of the TS videos it appears HRCs translate activities to a small % of short sale listings. The door knocking may be too much for those not paying their mortgage and want not to open door or allowing debt collector to come in.
If you are in a friendly neighborhood and have the patience some will even ask you to come in to do warm transfer. However, most home owners are so far into foreclosure they asked to get dragged out by sheriffs and will not want to meet someone who says he/she is a home retention consultant.
I get the followings in all languages(English, Spanish and Vietnamese).
1. Door slamming at HRC is quite common.
2 I will call police if you are not leaving is another.
3 What makes you think this is not a scam?
4. Dead beat.
