Jacob Swodeck – Mastering the Short Sale Game

Shawn Mahdavi September 7, 2012

You guys asked for a short sale expert so here you go! Jacob Swodeck took a few minutes to unleash his knowledge about short sales…how to do them, what to look for, and most importantly how to leverage resources in your marketplace to profit from this lucrative niche. Enjoy!

Jacob Swodeck occupies a unique niche in the real estate field. He is a nationally known real estate educator who has trained over 20,000 agents in short sales and other topics.

In addition to delivering keynote presentations, he prepares industry updates for large national agent-networks, conducts webinars for the National Association of Realtors, and coaches hundreds of Keller Williams agents through his Short Sale Inner Circle program through MAPS.

Jacob is also an active Keller Williams agent, with over 1,100 short sales to his credit. He began his real estate career in 1998 with one of the west coast’s first Broker’s specializing in high-volume short sales.

Besides providing a crash course in the default market, that experience convinced Jacob that he could help troubled homeowners by educating them—and their agents—about the short sale process. As he puts it, “Since then I have focused all my energy and passion towards helping homeowners avoid foreclosure through the short sale process, as well as training other real estate professionals…” The result has been a burgeoning career as a speaker, as well as a hands-on trainer of default agents.

When not traveling or educating, Jacob enjoys activities with his church, an occasional golf game, and spending time with his wife and son.
