First and foremost, if you are behind on your mortgage, owe more than your home is worth, or are in danger of foreclosure, I can helpI don’t hand my short sales off to a third party negotiator. I personally negotiate all of my short sales taking ownership of them from start to finish. I assist homeowners in negotiating down the amount owed on a home loan. It creates a win situation by providing the homeowner an option before their property is foreclosed upon. I strive to make the short sale negotiation as short and simple as possible.

“We had two mortgages on the home and owed almost $200,000 more than the estimate of the home’s value at that time! I highly recommend Bryan Firth and his team for your short sale needs.”
Brent Burns
“We chose Bryan Firth and his company because they came highly recommended by several sources that we looked into. Bryan did not disappoint. My husband and I chose to short sale our home and Bryan made the process so easy and painless for us. We currently live out of state which we thought would make it difficult but that never became a factor. I believe from from the day the sign went in the ground to the closing date it took less then two months. We would and have recommended Bryan. Thank you so much for making our experience smooth and timely!”
Stacy Ryan
“Bryan Firth was my short sale agent I was going through a very difficult time in my life and could no longer afford my home. Bryan was very professional and handled the entire process to list my house as a short sale. He dealt with my mortgage company and to my surprise I even received a check at the closing. He made a stressful situation much simpler and comforting to me. My house was sold and I avoided foreclosure with the entire process spanning around 5 months. What a relief and I would recommend Bryan Firth to anyone in a similar situation as mine.”
Mr. Adams
I met with my attorney who advised me to find a “pit bull” realtor who specialized in short sales. We met the following day, you explained the process, timeline, and a contract was signed. Bryan I am so thankful for you and your entire team.The compassion and professionalism was outstanding! I can honestly say that this has been one of the most emotionally devastating events I’ve had, I am glad that you walked this journey with me. You were an answer to my prayers.”
