Lee Honish (Certified Default Advocate Training (CDAT))
ADVOCATE, Author, Real Estate Consultant and FORMER Head Loss Mitigator: IndyMac Bank with 22+ years Asset Management background For the past five years Lee Honish has conducted more than 600 seminars, training over 50 thousand agents how to rescue families from the nightmare of foreclosure. “It is not as difficult to work with the banks as people have led you to believe. Banks want to sell these properties, not own them,” says Honish.
Honish had a 20+ year career as a foreclosure asset manager/loss mitigator working for large mortgage lenders. Early in 2007, he knew that agents needed to know what the banks know in order to close short sales in record time.
He developed a program that has a 99% close ratio, which is both astonishing and truly making a difference. “It is satisfying to provide useful education to a group of professionals in our nation that desperately need to work together. Real estate professionals just need to put the right strategy to work for them, so they can be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.” over 1 million web views, top Real Estate Website, top short sale trainer, top short sale marketing
Mike Linkenauger (Short Sale Specialist Network)
Mike got his start in Real Estate in 2005 at the young age of 26. He immediately established himself as a top producer in the Jacksonville, FL market, moving into the top 1% of agents his first year in the business. As the Florida housing market became depressed in 2007, Mike took advantage of the situation and quickly learned the short sale business. In no time he amassed an inventory of over 100 short sale listings and quickly established himself as one of the top short sale agents in the State of Florida. As his online presence grew, homeowners from other parts of Florida began contacting him for guidance with a short sale and to be connected with a local short sale agent.
Seeing a need for home owners in hardship to be connected to local short sale experts on a national level, Mike founded The Short Sale Specialist Network in October 2008. 2010 marked a season of growth for the company with the launch of their online short sale agent social networking site as well as the Certified Short Sale Guide training designation. 2012 marked the launch of the Short Sale Lead Machine website and marketing program for short sale Realtors. The Short Sale Specialist Network has evolved into an organization of over 12,000 agents, manages a portfolio of over 40 short sale related consumer websites, and has assisted tens of thousands of home owners with a short sale.
