Dec. 10, 2010 - PRLog -- Las Vegas, Nevada --The Myers Team with Century 21 MoneyWorld warns Nevada homeowners to beware of Realtors who call themselves Short Sale Experts or Short Sale Specialists. According to Francoise Myers, owner of the Myers Team, "Many self-proclaimed Las Vegas Short Sale Experts have little or no actual experience closing short sale transactions." Additionally, Myers said, "There are many Realtors who are aggressively advertising their short sale expertise on the Internet, and even on TV, however, many of these so-called experts are not even ranked in the top 50 short sale agents in Las Vegas. Closing 5-10 short sale transactions a year hardly makes anyone an expert."

A recent report released by IMS Advanced Realty Data Services on October 31, 2010 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.

According to the report, The Myers Team with Century 21 Moneyworld has closed more short sale listings than any Real Estate Agent or Broker in Las Vegas.  The Myers Team is nationally recognized as one of the most influential figures in real estate today.  “Many Realtors proclaim themselves to be short sale experts; however, The Myers Team is the real deal.  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,” Myers said.  Using a Realtor inexperienced with the short sale process can have devistating results for homeowners, such as rejection of the short sale, foreclosure, or being required by the bank to pay a large promissory note in exchange for a short sale approval.  An experienced agent knows how to sidestep these landmines and protect the homeowner from the bank.

Bill and Francoise Myers have helped hundreds of Las Vegas families avoid foreclosure.  “As Realtors who specialize in short sale transactions, our clients’ needs are unique. Sellers facing foreclosure must remember that banks are not looking out for you or your family.  Banks are debt collectors.  They are not on your side, and are not looking out for your best interest.  Additionally, homeowners must remember that banks are tape-recording all phone conversations with the intent of using these conversations against you.  When you work with The Myers Team, our job is to get between you and the bank.  We represent our clients, NOT banks.  It is our job to negotiate the best possible outcome.  Ultimately, our job is to take away the stress, and make the transaction as smooth and stress-free as possible,” Myers said.

According to Century 21 corporate rankings, available on, the Myers Team has been the number one ranked sales team at Century 21 MoneyWorld for ten of the past eleven months.   Keith Thomsen, sales manager for The Myers Team attributes the success of The Myers Team to “aggressive internet marketing.”  Thomsen said, “Bill and Francoise (Myers Team owners) know the short sale process inside and out.  Their ability to successfully negotiate with banks is based upon their experience and their knowledge of the short sale process.”
