REO Trade Association, The American Society of REO Specialists™, Facilitates Recruitment of REO Agents

REO RESQ™, a property preservation company, teams with full service REO asset management company, Leading Edge Companies, to recruit reo agents and property preservation contractors through The American Society of REO Specialists™. 

Orlando, Fla. – July 14, 2009 – Frank Patrick, REO specialist and founder of trash out business franchise, REO ResQ, is currently working with Rod Beever, President of Leading Edge Companies, to recruit new REO agents and Property Preservation Contractors.  REO ResQ™ and Leading Edge Companies, a full service REO asset management and field services company, are recruiting through the REO trade association, The American Society of REO Specialists™ (ASREOS,) specifically through the ASREOS website,

In a recent teleconference call, Frank Patrick and Rod Beever discussed the state of the property preservation and REO industry, especially the growing opportunity for REO specialists to flourish during the current foreclosure increase across the country.

“Any time they (lenders) change the dynamics of their business, and outsource to a company like (Leading Edge Companies,) it opens up the opportunity for new people, who don’t yet have that relationship, to prove themselves,” remarked Frank Patrick.

“I think that’s going to grow.  I think we’ll see less and less business done directly between the agent and the contractor, the bank and contractor, or the bank and the agent.  I think that more business will come from an outsourcers like REO ResQ and Leading Edge Companies,” Patrick continued.

Since the recent nationwide foreclosure moratorium ended, the number of properties foreclosed on by lenders has increased and the number of new foreclosure filings is at an all time high.  As demand grows for field service companies, mortgage field services and trash out businesses, now seems to be the perfect time to start a property preservation company, such as REO RESQ™.

“I believe we have time yet before we get through this onslaught of REO business, I believe it may continue for another 2-5 years,” remarked Beever.  

With the current state of the housing market, banks and financial institutions are finding that preserving and maintaining REO properties can be an overwhelming task. REO ResQ™ provides these companies with trained contractors to secure, clean out and maintain their foreclosed properties until they are sold.
