Community and Personal

I was instrumental in the start-up of US FIRST Robotics TEAM #2337, the EngiNERDs of Grand Blanc High School in 2007 and created the Parent Robotics Organization (PRO). 

I love to travel and have moved many times, including relocating overseas to Australia and Germany.


SHORT SALES

When it comes to short sales, experience counts and I have successfully negotiated 99% of the short sales I have listed. Many Realtors do not understand how to negotiate short sales or evaluate if the homeowner even qualifies for one. They end up wasting the homeowner's time and hurting their credit. 

A Short Sale should be considered if you are already in foreclosure or if you are facing foreclosure and can show hardship and financial distress. What is Financial Distress? Financial distress causes tremendous strain on families. Causes can be:

* Unmanageable Debt * Job Loss * Marriage/ Growing Family Size
* Reduced Income * Divorce/Separation * Incarceration
* Serious Illness * Death * Military Service
* Medical Bills * Relocation * Payment/Interest Rate increase


Important things you should know about a Short Sale 

*  The lender pays the fees, commissions and closing costs related to the sale. 

*  Past due Property Taxes and Water/Sewer bills often become part of the Short Sale Settlement.

*  A short sale is possible even when the Foreclosure/Sheriff Sale has occurred. If there is enough time left before the redemption period expires we can try to sell your home and save your credit by asking your lender to remove 'foreclosure' from your credit report after the sale is closed. 

*  Selling your home as a Short Sale will have a much less negative impact on your credit report than a Foreclosure, allowing for a much quicker recovery

As a knowledgeable and compassionate Realtor I am committed to helping distressed families find better solutions for their future. I will handle all the paperwork and negotiation of the Short Sale with your lender for you and do everything I can to help you avoid foreclosure and save your credit! I want to remove the financial stress from your life, put an end to the sleepless nights and get you on your way to a fresh start.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS


Found a home for us that was not even for sale!!

"Shelly went far beyond anything we would have ever expected from a Realtor! My husband and I were extremely fussy buyers moving from Western Michigan. We were unaware of the area and relied upon Shelly to show us around. Shelly took the time to show us many different areas - from Goodrich to Clarkston, Brandon, Fenton, Holly, Flushing, Swartz Creek, Davison and Grand Blanc - you name it she showed us. She never pushed us into one area or the other but wanted us to see what the areas on this side of the state had to offer. We settled on Grand Blanc at a time when few homes were available that met our requirements. Shelly actually sent letters to the subdivisions we were interested it and we found our DREAM home! It was not even for sale but the homeowners were ready to sell! Shelly was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and always available to talk to when we had questions or concerns. I really liked the personal attention we received - no team, just Shelly and her assistant. Thank you Shelly!"
