Las Vegas, NV – April 4, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Local Realtors and Short Sale Experts, Bill and Francoise Myers receive Top Honors at the International Century 21 Convention.
This years International Century 21 Convention was held at the Bellagio Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Century 21 President and CEO, Rick Davidson announced that The Myers Team with Century 21 MoneyWorld has won the prestigious Centurion Award for their 2010 achievements.
The Century 21 Centurion Award represents one of the most prestigious awards presented to Century 21 sales associates worldwide. Since the Centurion Award is an international award, only a small percentage of sales associates attain this high level status, making this award the benchmark for true professionalism within the worldwide Century 21 system.
The Myers Team is nationally recognized as one of the most influential figures in real estate today. A recent report released by IMS Advanced Realty Data Services on January 10, 2011 named The Myers Team the #1 Short Sale Real Estate Team in Nevada. Number one status was determined by actual short sale listings closed in 2010. Additionally, a report released on January 15, 2011 by the Century 21 Corporation, showed The Myers Team as the #1 Short Sale Realtors in the Southwest United States.
Bill and Francoise Myers, owners of The Myers Team are Nevada Short Sale Experts. A short sale or short payoff is where a home is sold for less than the amount owed. Many Las Vegas Realtors proclaim themselves to be short sale experts; however, according to Myers, “Realtors can become Certified Short Sale Experts by attending a one day class at the Board of Real Estate. The ability to be called an expert in any field should be based upon performance and consistent results; not based upon attending an afternoon seminar.” Myers added, “This would be the same as calling yourself a ‘home run expert’ after attending a one-day class, yet never picking up a baseball bat or actually hitting a ball.” The Myers Team has continually broken sales records, and when it comes to short sale transactions, they are considered by most experts to be the industry leaders.
According to Myers, “If you are a Nevada homeowner who is upside down in your mortgage, there has never been a better time to do a short sale. The reason to do a short sale is to minimize damage to your credit and avoid being sued by your bank. While some homeowners have been confused regarding the legal ramification of doing a short sale, the fact is that most major banks are now waiving their right to pursue deficiency action against Nevada homeowners in short sale approval letters.” A deficiency judgement is a lawsuit which a bank may file against a homeowner whose mortgage foreclosure sale did not produce sufficient funds to pay off the loan in full.
According to Francoise Myers, “Surrendering a home worth half of what you owe is NOT a failure, it’s a business decision. A short sale is not the end. It’s an opportunity for you and your family to take control and walk away free and clear. Nobody wants to lose their home; however, there is no need for you and your family to go down with a sinking ship. Homeowners need to know when to say enough is enough. Sometimes you have to take a few steps backwards to move forward correctly.”
The Myers Team is ranked the #1 Short Sale Team in Nevada. In 2010, they closed more short sale listings than any Realtor or Broker in Nevada.
