The National Association of Realtors SFR Designation:

 Press Release -  Mar 28, 2010 – (Burnsville, MN) – Daniel C. Swanson and Margo A. Swanson of Swanson Property & Realty, Inc. (now Segue Realty LLC), have earned the Short Sales and Foreclosure designation (SFR), a nationally recognized certification. 

     This course is offered to Realtors by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and is earned to help sellers understand and navigate these complicated transactions.  The need for professional expertise with distressed properties continues to grow, which prompted this broker/agent team to pursue their Certification.   

     The Swansons have worked on transactions involving distressed properties and understand the importance to continually expand their education to help Buyers with expert guidance in how to negotiate and structure their offers on distressed properties.   This dynamic team also understands how difficult it is for a Seller to realize that losing their home to foreclosure could be a possibility.  Through their expertise, they guide the Seller(s) through the process to avoid this possibility and seamlessly connect them with teams of professionals to help Sellers avoid foreclosures.

     “Contemplating a foreclosure is a stressful, heartbreaking situation which we have seen too many times," said Dan Swanson, Broker/Owner, “but once these Sellers meet with us, as Short Sale Specialists, they understand our goal is to help them avoid foreclosure, get involved with their lender, and (in some cases) a qualified short sale attorney, to assist them in getting their home sold so that they can move on with their lives." 

     "As upsetting as the process might seem, we can calmly explain all of the details and work with sellers and buyers through every step," Margo comments. “I have received so many calls from these Sellers saying they had wished they had called us sooner, rather than worrying day after day about what to do. That’s why we pursued this certification - to help those in this situation." 

     The SFR Certification program includes training on how to qualify sellers for short sales, negotiate with lenders, and limit risk of the sellers. It also includes resources to help agents stay current on market specific information as the distressed properties market continues to evolve.  For more information on how the process of a short sale may work for you, please call either of us for a confidential consultation.  952-707-1941 Office, 612-325-4194 Cell (Dan), 612-308-9038 Cell (Margo).
