Short Sale Specialist | RE/MAX Professionals Select
Bert Gor of RE/MAX Professionals Select has been highly successful in his eight years of real estate. For four years in a row, he has been the No. 1 ranked RE/MAX short sale agent in Northern Illinois, successfully closing more individual short sales in Northern Illinois than any other agent; he has also ranked in the top five RE/MAX agents in Northern Illinois and is president of the Short Sale Group, Inc.
“Every month, I turn homeowners who were ‘non-believers’ into ‘believers,'” Gor says. “There is nothing more satisfying than when a homeowner, whose dignity you helped save, got their lender(s) to forgive the debt and prevented one more foreclosure in the community.” He adds that he is working to improve homeowners’ faith in short sales. “My goal is to get homeowners to understand that short sales are far better than foreclosure and the shorted amount can be forgiven, if negotiated properly, and that is what we do.”
Gor also aims to work with agents, and has created a referral program where agents are able to refer their short sales for referral commissions of up to 35 percent. “My goal in every single short sale transaction is to obtain the homeowner debt forgiveness.” After work, Gor is ecstatic to go home to his baby girl (born November 2010) and his wife; he describes his family as “the greatest gift a man could ever receive.”
