We purchased a home in Yucaipa in 2005 with Tricia, and we sold that same home in 2011 via a short sale, again with Tricia. We had heard horror stories about short sales, and we approached the process with trepidation. We had also left the region and were therefore selling our home in abstentia. In the end, the process went flawlessly, and we closed and settled our short sale within 60 days of initial listing. Tricia priced our home appropriately, screened the prospective buyer, handled all of the short sale paperwork, and advised us on how to interact with our lender. All of this was done remotely through phone calls, email, and FedEx. We did not have to return to Yucaipa at any point in the process, which saved us travel costs and hassle.
In general, our short sale went exceptionally smoothly and quickly. Our success was due specifically to Tricia's organization and knowledge of the short sale process. We could have had an altogether different experience if we had used a less-knowledgeable realtor. Tricia was great, and we highly recommend her, both for a home purchase and for home sale.
