Nothing can replace face to face meetings with Realtors. I wish we had more time to visit them in their offices… There’s always something new to see and learn.
While visiting Hensley’s Prairie Path Realty in Villa Park, IL, I learned quite a few things. For instance, that real estate brokerage can still be an important community center with its own unique character. This is not exactly a thing of a past.
HPPR is a great example. Their office looks more like an antique shop than your typical corporate style brokerage. They treat people who come in their office as if they were their family. In fact, spending a few hours with Hensley’s does feel like watching one big family at work.
And there’s another thing that I learned. Raymond ‘Doc’ Hensley showed me his newest gadget: an old fashioned phone receiver attached to his smartphone. Think of outsmarting a smartphone… Very cool.

Just a quick update on what’s going on with our short sale processing platform. We have made some things simpler and got rid of some redundant features all together.
We have eliminated the broke ID and office ID fields in our initial new member registration form and made it super simple to register. If earlier we used to say it took ‘under a minute’ to become a member of National Closing Center and start enjoying all the perks and benefits of free short sale processing, so now it takes under 30 seconds.
We don’t want your credit card, we don’t want your broker ID or any other sensitive information. Just enter your firs and last name, email and phone number, and you’re in.
As always, the software itself is being updated constantly. Our customer service and our processors and attorneys, however, are the same knowledgeable and reliable people… just the kind of folks you would trust your short sale files to.
Millions of homes have gone into foreclosure in the past two years, and it seems that God’s houses also are starting to fall victim to the recession.
Nearly 200 American houses of worship experienced foreclosure or short sales in the past five years, and the numbers seem to be growing rapidly, said Chris Macke, a spokesman for the CoStar Group, a real estate analysis company.
In 2006, only two churches in the United States lost their buildings to foreclosure or short sale, Macke said. By 2009, the number had grown to 61, and there were 95 in 2010.
While that number is small, “what caught our attention was the rate of increase year over year,” Macke said. “What we’re seeing is religious real estate and secular real estate are subject to the same laws of economics.”
