Some REO Brokerages Prosper Despite Decreased Inventory

Desiree Patno, founder of the National Association of Women REO Brokerages and founder of Desiree Patno Enterprises based in Irvine, California, said her staff takes 15 photos of each property each week and then once each month conducts a comprehensive walk-through taking about 200 photos.
