About James

I got my Real Estate Broker license in 2010 and immediately started working with distressed homeowners, listing and selling short sales. It is such an amazing and fulfilling feeling being able to help people navigate out of such crippling financial situations. In January of 2015, I joined on with property management company as a Community Association Manager, managing a large portfolio of condominium and homeowner associations as well as a multi-family property. This diversified my experience and knowledge, specifically in the community management and multi-family property management fields. I continue to manage a 51 unit multi-family building in Rainier Beach. People need to know that foreclosure is not their only option. There are many options available to people who are behind on their mortgage payments or underwater. I have the ability to assist them in pursuing the option that works best for them and their specific set of circumstances. There is no 'one size fits all' when it comes to negotiating a settlement of mortgage debt. There are many options available including loan modification, short sale, or deed in lieu. ALL of which are better than the last and final option - FORECLOSURE. A short sale allows a homeowner to have complete control of the process from start to finish, negotiating with their lender to settle their debt. Being PROactive vs. REactive, the homeowner is able to sell their home on THEIR terms. Sellers are often eligible for one of the many incentive programs offered by lenders to complete a short sale and could be eligible to receive up to $15,000 in relocation funds. The complexity of short sales requires knowledge of the market area, the process, and the intricate and complex laws. Having lived in Mercer Island, the U-District, North Seattle, Capitol Hill, Bellevue, Tukwila, West Seattle, Renton, Seward Park, Ballard and Rainier Valley, I KNOW the greater Puget Sound area. In my years of experience I have developed close working relationships with multiple lenders such as: Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, US Bank, Key Bank, Aurora, Nationstar, Greentree, Ocwen, Central Mortgage Company, One Main, First Franklin, GMAC, PNC, Select Portfolio Services, Specialized Loan Servicing, Ditech, Carrington, PennyMac, SPS, Caliber, and many many more.
