With all my respect to REO Veterans! I doubt that you started as an REO agent knowing everything, I am not applauding the agent that does not have a clue of " CASH FOR KEYS " means. I am sorry to inform you that I am a newbie, and my background is Loan Officer, I was already question by Mr. Marquez how did I get in... well!!!
I am a sales person, so my ability to originate business helps, I don’t wait for the business to come to me I go out there and get it, REO's is not the only way to be in the business, STOP waiting for the AM call, there are many investors out there getting your business they are tons of buyers, many pre-foreclosures. Don’t worry of what others do.
Get UP take your cell phone device in case your AM calls you and take business cards and get to work, go do door knock, sellers are waiting for you to get them into a short sale, why wait for lender to foreclose on the property. Do you know you can help them by doing a short sale and save their credit rating?
The difference with me PROUD newbie is I am eager to learn, other veterans agents know it all, and if Sunday Newspaper, Real Estate section reads 5000 SOLD homes I don’t have time to find out who was the top realtor selling or making money I want to be top Realtor and I want to Make Money.
HHEEELLLOOOO Get ahead! Get out there and work like a REALTOR or Broker whatever you are. I go out there and door knock twice a week, I hold open house EVERY WEEKEND and build a prospect buyer sheet, I’m too busy to care what others do. I am sorry I am a newbie but I love to Diversify. My hard job got me into the REO world. You become noticable when you work HARD. All my newbie fellows keep going to conventions, dont give up!

But the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.

The destruction of the poor is their poverty.

The wages of the wicked to sin.
