Karl Falk meets all of these requirements. In 2010, he launched Summit Mitigation Services, which helps title companies and real estate brokers handle negotiations of short sales. In a short period of time, the SMS team, through technology, education and professional services, has helped hundreds of agents gain strategic and tactical insight into the short sale world. SMS closes well over 80% of the short sales they negotiate, significantly higher than the national average of less than 50%. More home closings translate into less foreclosures which in turn helps the Colorado and national economy.
Karl continuously inspires others through his vision, innovation, and business success. One cutting edge technology tool is his MyShortSaleScore mobile app. This tool gives real estate professionals the ability to predict the amount of difficulty of a short sale transaction, and also allows the user to manage the short sale business wirelessly via the cloud. He predicts this will transform the way short sales and listing appointments are handled in the future.
In addition, Karl advocates for increased awareness and responsibility among professionals in the short sale real estate industry. With extensive industry experience, Karl regularly provides thought leadership and insight to shape National Short Sale Policies. Currently, he is a Policy Advisor to the Distressed Property Coalition, a Washington based organization focused on ensuring congressional policy makers have the facts from industry leaders working in the short sale market; this work generates positive change for the consumer.
The SMS President and CEO also developed a comprehensive short sale negotiation training curriculum for his staff, which he has turned into a training program used by real estate professionals across the country. "There is so much information out there about short sales, and some of it is misleading,”
Summit Mitigation Services is a nationally recognized short sale and debt negotiation company. Striving to combine progress in technology with new ways of doing business, SMS offers cutting edge services, education and technology tools for professionals in the short sale industry. Karl Falk’s team is comprised of some of the most talented negotiators in the short sale industry. For more information, visit www.summitmitigation.com.
