Petra Norris Earns NAR Short Sales and Foreclosure Certification

Buyers and Sellers Benefit from REALTOR® Expertise in Distressed Sales

Lakeland – Florida, March 20, 2010

Petra Norris, Realtor®, managing Broker with CDV TransAtlantic, Inc Real Estate Brokerage has earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification. The National Association of REALTORS® offers the SFR certification to REALTORS® who want to help both buyers and sellers navigate these complicated transactions, as demand for professional expertise with distressed sales grows.

Petra Norris has been helping homeowners negotiate short sales and buyers helping with the purchase of short sales and bank-owned properties (REO) in Florida, primarily in Polk County including cities, such as Lakeland, Auburndale, Bartow, Mulberry, Lake Alfred, Polk City, Highland City, Kathleen and Winter Haven. She is a member of the Lakeland Association of Realtors®, the Florida Association of Realtors®, and the National Association of Realtors®. You can contact her office at 863-619-6918 if you are having difficulties making your mortgage payment.

According to a recent NAR survey, nearly one-third of all existing homes sold recently were either short sales or foreclosures.  For many real estate professionals, short sales and foreclosures are the new “traditional” transaction.  REALTORS® who have earned the SFR certification know how to help sellers maneuver the complexities of short sales as well as help buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.

“As leading advocates for homeownership, REALTORS® believe that any family that loses its home to foreclosure is one family too many, but unfortunately, there are situations in which people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or a short sale results,” said 2009 NAR President Charles McMillan, a broker with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Dallas-Fort Worth. “Foreclosures and short sales can offer opportunities for home buyers and benefit the larger community, as well, but it’s extremely important to have the help of a real estate professional like a REALTOR® who has earned the SFR certification for these kinds of purchases.”
