After five months of unsuccessfully trying to negotiate the payoffs of my loans by myself I was recommended to Brian Delbenes by a close family friend.  Unaware as to how the short sale process worked, Brian took the time to sit down with me and explain everything in detail… step by step.  Shortly thereafter, Brian had listed my home for sale, marketed the property beautifully, and within a matter of three days had received over a dozen offers on my property!  Trusting Brian’s experience and knowledge, I selected the offer/buyer that he felt most confident would be there at the very end of this process.  In retrospect, it was the best decision I made because the initial buyer we chose was in fact the same person with whom we had closed escrow.

While the short sale process was cumbersome and exhausting it was a great comfort knowing that I had Brian on my side protecting my interests each and every day.  With two loans having to be negotiated it proved to be an extremely difficult task to get both lenders to agree upon a payoff amount.  However, Brian’s perseverance, persistence, and superb negotiating skills ultimately prevailed!  Brian was able to get the 2nd lienholder to accept $10,000 less than their original proposal which finally allowed us to complete the short sale process!

If you are serious about wanting to work with someone who truly cares and who possesses all the skills and knowledge needed for a successful closing then look no further! I promise that you will be in “good” hands with Brian Delbenes and his team at Good Neighbor Mortgage & Realty!
