I meet with multiple homeowner on a weekly basis and guide them through the issues of being upside down on their mortgage and what they can do to better it.

Experience in the area

I run a team of agents called the Pitcher Group, out of Salt Lake City. We specialize in Short Sales and helping sellers get out of tough situations. We have closed over 100 short sales in the past 3 years with our team. I also am an owner of a Short Sale Negotiation company that helps process short sale transactions for Real Estate Agents all across the country. I understand the investment side of Real Estate as I have bought and sold many rental type homes over the years. I also rehabilitate homes and flip them. We usually have 1 to 3 properties going at any given time. Our completion time from bought to sold is usually less then 4 months.


I am a member of the national Association of Realtors on the national level and the Salt Lake board of Realtors on the local level. I am a member of the Short Sale Specialist Network as well as multiple short sale mastermind groups locally and nationwide.
