Rhonda Kirwan

DIRECTOR OF NEGOTIATIONS

Rhonda knows you typically only get one shot at a short sale, so she always brings her A Game. She has over a decade of expertise in the mortgage lending business, much of that emphasizing on distressed properties, foreclosures and REOs.

Rhonda definitely knows the ins and outs of the lending process. She fully understands the mortgage transaction process from “all” sides. Her pleasantly persistent demeanor, along with her dedication to total seller satisfaction has proven to be successful when negotiating with both small banks and large financial institutions alike. Rhonda’s vast experience brings along with it years of rapport building with major “Big” banks and the ability to cut through bureaucratic red tape and get the sale closed quickly for her clients.

Getting a short sale through the system in a timely manner can be a daunting uphill battle for some, but Rhonda is driven by these challenges and the rewards each successful closing brings.
