Here are just a few of the testimonials my team and I have received from clients we have assisted through a short sale:
“Presented with a dream job in Boston, I was contortedly faced with the bitter hardship of being a homeowner needing to sell in a stressed real estate market, and fast!
In addition to the downed economy and time being of the essence, I needed to find a Realtor experienced in dealing with unconventional mortgages, now commonly called “predatory loans.”
Through a targeted online search I found Jonathan’s website. His consistent use of social media to share industry information with his clients was impressive. It showed me how knowledgeable, engaged and progressive of a real estate broker Jonathan is in the Charlotte, NC area, which prompted me to call him.
Within a few hours we were sitting at my kitchen table discussing a game plan. I told Jonathan I was not interested in being an out of state homeowner to a property with no foreseeable rebound potential, and that I’d like to sell my home, but without damage to my credit and without being held liable for a deficiency or promissory note. He agreed to give it his all – and did.
My home was placed on the market a week before Thanksgiving, 2010 for Fair Market Value (FMV) – a figure calculated through analysis of area real estate trends and current sales and a crucial part in gaining the bank’s approval of the sale.
As testament to Jonathan’s “magic number,” I received my first viewings the day the listing went active, and signed a full price offer shortly after the holiday!
Throughout the month of December, Jonathan displayed a professional blend of patience and persistence, handling communications with various parties at the bank…until the perfect storm commenced, and the mortgage insurance company approved the sale without a promissory note. The bank was soon to follow and I was issued an approval letter releasing me from the lien without a deficiency – just in time for my relocation to Boston!
Jonathan created an electronic account for me to review and sign the necessary paperwork from out of state, and he represented me as power of attorney at the closing on Feb 14, 2011. The entire process from start to finish took less than 12 weeks.
The relief I feel after finally being rid of this predatory loan is exhilarating. The sale of my home has allowed me to move forward with my career and truly enjoy my new city. I’m so appreciative to Jonathan for his tireless efforts in making this possible, and I strongly recommend him as a Charlotte, NC real estate expert.”

“We worked with Jonathan to sell our house. This took considerable time due to the real estate market difficulties. Jonathan stayed upbeat and focused throughout the lengthy process. After 24 months the house finally sold, and we are very happy with all the efforts Jonathan and Transaction Manager Kristin Ayers put forward on our behalf.
We will gladly hire Jonathan and Kristin again!”
