Though the housing market is at a better place than in recent years, foreclosed properties sill abound, and not all agents know how to deal with them. So when Realtor Eve Benton, who specializes in REO inventory, was looking for a new firm, EXIT Strategy Realty jumped at the chance to hire her.
Benton, previously of Hyde Park-based Keller Williams Realty, brings five years of real estate experience to EXIT’s team. Benton has spent much of her career both listing REO properties and securing foreclosed homes for buyers. Benton has earned the SFR and ADPR real estate designations, according to a press release announcing the hiring.
At her old firm, Benton frequently finished as a top producer. For that reason – and for her experience dealing with REO properties – EXIT CEO Nick Libert is glad to have Benton on the team.
“I am very excited to have Eve’s experience on board,” Libert said. “REOs continue to be a significant share of the market, even in this improving real estate landscape.”
