His experiences with mortgage modification goes back before our current understanding of the term as related in today’s market. A client was in need of some assistance in a foreclosure matter, a portion of the mortgage document was brought to the attention of the mortgage firm’s attorney known as the “Forbearance Clause”. They immediately worked out an arrangement with the homeowner and the foreclosure was stopped in the mid 1980’s, that result today would be termed as a "Mortgage Modification". Utilizing the "Forbearance Clause" he arranged with Mortgage Firms, to accept less than the total balance due, which today would be termed as a "Short Sale".
Fred has devoted much of his professional career to providing service and support to the sales agents assigned to his responsibility, his premise was that if the agents were serviced and supported adequately, that they would provide superior customer service to the office’s clients. While he never obtained the various designations and production awards, he made certain that his agents obtained theirs. The obvious uniqueness of his position with this firm is that as the Managing Partner/Broker of Record, he is once again involved in servicing clients.
