Welcome to my Blog. Since 2003 the focus of our business has been helping homeowners avoid foreclosure. In our current economy, the best solution is often a short sale. Many lenders offer incentives, modifications include principal reductions - helping homeowners create strategies to overcome financial difficulties are our specialty. We are happy to help. If you have any questions about foreclosures, short sales, selling or buying a home - Just Call Wendy!
