New This Week

Happy Thanksgiving On behalf of all of the owners, managers and staff at Allegiance, I appreciate your business and loyalty over the years. Have a great Thanksgiving. As a reminder, offices will be closed on Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25.

Bank of America Short Sales The Alternative Right Party Contact (ARPC) program is a joint effort through which RE/MAX, Bank of America and Dignified Transition Solutions (DTS) reach out to preselected distressed homeowners and guide them through a Short Sale.

Charlie Bengel, Jr. Chief Executive Officer

The initiative began in May 2011 as a pilot program in Arizona and Nevada, where success stories have already been documented. It has since expanded to include nearly 10,000 properties in all 50 states. If its initial success continues, more than 60,000 properties could

703-824-4199 (Voicemail)

be assigned to RE/MAX Associates in the first year.

CONTACT BY EMAIL You need to have a short sale designation and an updated profile (with correct email address!) on to be eligible for these leads. This is a good program because you get to reach out to the distressed home owner instead of that person having to reach out to you.

I'll write about the RE/MAX - Bank of America short sale escalation process next week.
