Beloved, when there is a delay to your expected blessing and breakthrough, you need to deal with the agent of satanic delay. The Bible says that the agenda of the enemy is to come and steal, kill and destroy. You need to pray and recover every distance stolen from your life by the enemy. And as you pray, the story of your life shall change to glory, in the name of Jesus

In my experience as a certified short sale professional, who has completed hundreds of short sales over the years, I have stood witness to the damage and harm an ill informed agent can do to their client. Many agents just don’t have anything better than an elementary understanding of short sales and this lack of knowledge and experience opens consumers to a wide array of problems. Problems like bank delays, increased time on market, loss of buyers, foreclosure and in the most severe cases, fraud allegations, investigations, criminal charges and prosecution. Unfortunately, by the time the client seeks me out to help them, many times, it’s too late and the damage caused can’t be undone. Today’s show is all about shedding a light onto shoddy short sales and how you can protect yourself from becoming a victim or even worse, unintentionally participating in fraud.
Back to my mega Q&A session with VO Agent Jeffrey Umberger! Today’s show – part 3 – we cover a LOT of ground! Starting with ‘what are you really worth’ as a voiceover talent, discussing VO rates and negotiation. Also, a good discussion about agents, advertising agencies and production co’s seeking talent on p2p! After the break - Per Jeffrey, IMPROV IS A GOLD STANDARD and all VO actors should do it! IMPROV OPENS DOORS… There’s more about having multiple agents, commissions and contracts… And all of it is a great conversation for you to hear!

This Friday August 1, 2014 @ 1:00pm cst, I will introduce you to a fraudulant practice that some homeowners are falling for called Buying the Listing. This is a commong practice used by nefarious agent to convince homeowners that they can bring in a buyer at the inflated price when in reality, the agent never intends to sell the home but, work with all the buyers that are calling in off the sign in the yard.
We will be discussing just exactly how this happens, why homeowners are falling for this and how you can avoid being a vicitm .
