Colleen commented on Brenda Ames's blog post Five Star
"I have never gone to any of their conventions or symposiums. It is a waste of my money and I don't have time to take several days off. Most of my REO business is coming from REO Network or referrals. I get some business from RESNET."

"I get a few listings from them a year. mostly from new clients. My old clients seem to be disappearing. I used to get alot of listings but now maybe a half dozen throughout the year. The commissions are lousy, they get worse with every new client."

"Like others, I got at least anywhere from 25 to 50 listings a year from them, now I am getting very little. Some of my bigger clients like Bayview seem to have dried up. I was getting the bulk of my listings from them but I have only had one listing…"

"Keybank is horrible to deal with, so is Citizens, which are the two banks that FAS deals with. The attorney for Citizens Bank is very very difficult to deal with. "

"yes I have worked for them for years. You will get at least some BPOs and REO assignments a year from them. They are ok to work for and it depends on what asset manager you deal with how difficult it will be. They are slow, however like everyone els…"

"yes he should. I would really like to know it going on. I am getting enough inspections and BPOs to survive but my REOS are in the toilet. Most of them way overpriced and I have not heard from some of my regular clients in months.  I am considering…"

Colleen replied to Pam Maglione's discussion Decline in BPO Orders: Is this widespread?
"some companies are slower, some are busier, I think that this is cyclical or buyouts. I had one company tell me that the election is messing things up. I think this will eventually iron itself out. One week I am busy, the next week slow."

"it was actually someone at Citi directly. Not an asset manager. It was in evictions.  That person was either fired or quit. I may send a letter to the department to see what can be done."

"I like Kondaur but I get a lot of requests for BPOS that do not end up in listings. I would clarify what the fee is. Not familiar with Seneca but I would ask."
