Hampton GA short sale review of Elva Branson

Hampton Georgia short sales, like short sales everywhere, are very gratifying once they are completed. But the road from the initial conversation with a distressed property owner all the way to the closing table and a release of lien for the seller can often be fraught with stress-producing dips and turns. But, not so in the case of Bill & Charlene Herndon’ s Hampton GA short sale. They demonstrated and reminded me how much cooperative and proactive sellers can smooth the way for a short sale. Not only was this family a joy to work with, the video below is a demonstration of their graciousness at the end.


Short sales, first-time homes sales and investor sales are two areas in which I have an edge -- uniquely qualified by training and experience to help you attain your goals.

I am a DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT and INVESTOR AGENT SPECIALIST, with a track record of success in short sales and foreclosure prevention. I work primarily in the southern and eastern communities of metro Atlanta, Georgia, from the intown neighborhoods of East Atlanta and Ormewood Park, to the south suburban communities of Ellenwood, Jonesboro, Hampton, Fayetteville and Stockbridge, to the historic college town of Morrow, and the trendy Camp Creek area. 

I am also a trained AFFORDABLE HOUSING SPECIALIST, able to help homebuyers through the entire process of finding, financing and purchasing a home just right for them.

When you are ready, I can find a buyer for your home and help you find and purchase your next home.

Hi Ms Lee, I was motivated to hire you based on my lender’s recommendation. I was informed you were very good at what you do. Based on my experience, you did absolutely well in all areas. You were very professional all the way, you explained in detail the journey of the short sale process and everything you said you would do was DONE.... In my opinion there is nothing I can consider that needs to be changed. I will definitely be using your service in the future and will recommend accordingly. I am indeed grateful and appreciated for your expertise and good service I received and I am most obliged that you would consider using me as a reference .

Thanks for your patience and hard work on this one. I could not have gotten this done without you. You kept me in the loop about the process and continued to fight for me with Chase.

La'Shawn W., Ellenwood, GA
I would like to thank you for all of your hard work in getting this house sold. Your job was much harder than ours and you never complained. Through the obstacles, the difficulties, you remained committed to helping selling this property. There are no words to express how much I appreciate everything that you did. From the moment you walked through the front door of the house you were committed to getting this house sold. Emotionally I was a wreck, and when I met you, you convinced me that this was the first step in moving forward in my life. Your patience in this process was great and your professionalism, unmatched. Thank you, Elva. Because of all your hard work, I can now move forward with no ties to my past and I have a beautiful future to look forward to. I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell in Georgia. I wish you all the best and many blessings. You're the best! - La'Shawn W., Ellenwood, GA

Dear Elva, Thank you for your perseverance in completing my short sale. I contacted you when I was experiencing a hardship and was not eligible to modify my mortgage. You showed the utmost professionalism and walked me through every step of the process. You worked tirelessly to ensure that I was successful even when things did not go as we planned. I can’t thank you enough for sticking with me through the process and ensuring that my short sale was successful. I highly recommend you to anyone that is experiencing a hardship or in need of real estate related services. Forever grateful, Theresa Nickolich, formerly of East Point, GA

Betty I., Frederick MD (East Point, GA)
Elva Branson Lee was the consummate assistant and professional in helping us purchase an affordable townhouse for our daughter to live in while attending college in Atlanta. Since we live in another state, I relied heavily on Elva in finding and showing my daughter properties, that were safe, affordable, and close to her school. Elva was always available to respond to our questions, and went beyond the call of duty in assuring that we recieved the best value on our money in purchasing a property that was in bank foreclosure. As a result of her devoted assistance, we were able to reduce housing cost by 50% (half of on-campus housing costs). To other parents of college students struggling with the high fees for tuition and for campus living, I recommend that if you can afford it and are able to, that you consider purchasing a property for your child(ren). Not only will you reduce your costs for housing, but you will also provide them an investment which will increase in value as the housing market rebounds. I also encourage you to call on Elva Branson Lee to help you navigate the housing waters. Thanks again Elva! - Betty Inge, Frederick, MD
Candesi & Lawrence R., Locust Grove, GA
Since I met Elva Branson-Lee and contracted her as my real estate agent in charge of negotiating the sale of my property, I was very pleasantly surprised at her knowledge of her job, performance, work ethics and professionalism. I have tried several other realtors but she was the most outstanding of them all. I was impressed with the timeliness in which she handled my case, thus safeguarding my home from foreclosure. This has saved my credit and secured the future of myself and family. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking such service. Thank you again for being so respectful and for your excellent customer service; this will stand out in my memory. Thanks once again, Elva on behalf of the Ramoodit family. - Candesi & Lawrence R., Locust Grove, GA
Alice & Ernest S., Riverdale, GA
It's been a long haul, Elva, but you never gave up on us, even through all the offers that didn't happen... Now our perseverance has paid off. This property is perfect, just what we had in mind when we started this journey all those weeks ago. And it's finally ours. Thanks, again. - Alice & Earnest S., Riverdale, GA,
Hilda L. Ellenwood, GA
Elva, thank you so much for helping us find our Ellenwood home. It's been my lifelong dream to own a home and have my children around me, and now it is finally coming true. We really apreciate you.
