Be successful and follow your Dreams. Short sales can be a solution.

Slumdog MillionaireI just watched Slumdog Millionaire tonight. I'd seen it before when it was fairly new, and had requested it again thru Netflix. It showed up yesterday quite unexpected - it had been awhile.... So after a day of travelling to meet new clients, I thought, this should be good.

I've been to India roughly 5 or 6 times before, when I was an architect. I was a healthcare architect, and my turbaned boss had plenty of connections there. Mumbai, New Delhi, Chandigarh, Goa. All very unique places, each with a charm of their own, and a rich heritage to explore. I even rode on a camel. See the picture in this post.

John M Scott on a CamelWe all have dreams to be successful in this life. I know I do. And we all have special quests. Today's meetings were special to me, helping short sale clients understand what they were up against. And how we could, together, solve their problems.

It takes special relationships in this world to help our friends and colleagues, and our clients to take that next step with their lives. Watching Slumdog Millionaire just reinforced that point for me. From what I have experienced in real life, their conditions were very real, and they survived. And so can we.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and are having problems keeping up with your mortgage, give me a call or an email. I understand what you are going through. I'm here to help. I've been there, done that. I know what it feels like. And believe me, it can be solved.

Hi John,

Short sales are tough.

If you have experienced it personally, it certainly gives you more compassion and understanding of the trauma, and also of the things that need to be done to accomplish the end goal.

Thanks for the post

Phil

It pays to work with someone who knows the ins and outs of short sales John.  Added drama is not what these people need.  Best to you sir.

Phil, Roger, reminds me of the words from a song: I've looked at life from both sides now, from up and down and still somehow, It's life's illusions I recall...We always need to keep the Goal in sight.

Enjoy the holidays and be well prepared for an outstanding 2012.  Many agents are not willing to learn the successful ways to process short sales.  This is not easy work.

I've never been to India, but when I watched Slumdog Millionaire, it reminded me so much of the struggles that poor Filipinos also have to endure and survive. The Philippines have their Smoky Mountain where people go through trash to find anything usable (or even eat). This is why I am ever so thankful that I am in this country, that I have a profession I enjoy, a roof over my head, and so much food that I have to go on a diet!

Roy, in my view of the profession we can't afford to ignore any opportunity. By the way, beautiful photograph!

John, I have not seen Slumdog Millionarie nor been to India.  I do know and understand that many people don't know what to do and they do need our help.  The hardest step in the process may well be the first step homeowners take in reaching out for help.  Merry Christmas!
