With the closing of our approved short sale now set, we thought this was a perfect time to express our thanks and gratitude. The best thing we ever did was take Roy’s advice when he told us he could help.
We remember that phone consultation like it was yesterday and the advice was some of the best we had ever been given. The next best thing that happened was having Geoffrey Sherman take on our fight. Geoffrey, what we appreciated the most was that you really took care of us.
The emails when all kinds of craziness came up or even just questions and you always replied so quickly. On top of that the countless times you would reply “call me” may have been second nature to you but to us it meant everything.
You negotiated a deal for us that really we only dreamed would be possible and so thank you for making that our reality. We are almost there and would not be setting a closing date without all of you.
Thank you all for the fight and the win!
Karen and Kathryn
Yes, there is life after short sale. I was a reluctant landlord, I found my self in charge of two houses after my parents died. I got a mortgage at the top of the market, I paid off my sibling’s interest in the family home, paid off my parents accounts and rented my home. Soon the market crashed, and a desperate tax strapped Broward County fined me for ” homestead Fraud” meaning that the months after my parents died, I failed to report this change in homestead to the Tax Appraiser’s Office, isn’t that who you notify first in a family tragedy? They fined me 30 grand.
Soon I was upside down in my home, the rented home was now over $150,000 less than it was mortgaged for.. and I was scrambling to make the payments.
Emptying my bank account every month, living on credit cards, the new American way. All of this to maintain a home I wasn’t even residing in. But what could I do? Finally I told my friend Heather, confided in her what a mess I was in. It was something I didn’t even want to admit… it was like confessing some sort of addiction..”I’m throwing away thousands of dollars and Im afraid to stop” She told me about short sale. I thought, aren’t you marked for life then? unable to purchase anything? relegated to cash only terms for life? All credit accounts revoked?
After a meeting with Roy Oppenheim I was told NO to all of these questions, but still I worried… I still remember stories of my Grandmother, Immigrants weren’t extended credit, so she would pawn my grandfather’s pocket watch so the family could eat.. “where’s that watch..? ”
We jumped in with both feet and went for a short sale. It wasn’t easy. it took a year. We fired two different agents. The last agent tried to lure me away from my lawyer, for her, “free” lawyer. (reminds me of a sign a saw once, “Free beer, yesterday”) The end of this rambling letter, is to say, here I am three months free of my money sucking home. There is no scarlet letter on my chest. My credit score has already begun to rebound.
All my credit cards have remained, and are actually paid! I bought a new(ish) car last month. There are no more threatening letters, only the vague fear of the tax implications.. but that’s a matter for my CPA.. Im no longer shackled to a poor decision I made while I was grieving. and to all afraid to make the leap out of a house that’s just a bad deal.. go ahead, jump out! Get while the getttin’s good. There is life after a short sale, and life is good.
I’m FREE, FREEEE thanks to Roy, Geoffrey and Heather! Thanks Oppenheim Law and Weston Title.

Five years ago, as a new builder we were extremely dependent on finding an excellent title company to service our needs. Roy, and his staff were always there for us and very patient in explaining things that ordinarily we maybe should have known. I now consider Weston Title an important part of my business team.
