Barbara Burke Updates Professionals on Distressed Property Transactions

Real estate expert Barbara Burke reviewed the latest information on distressed property transactions at a seminar held recently at the Polo Grill in Lakewood Ranch. More than 90 real estate professionals learned what a lender considers when deciding to proceed with a foreclosure, refinance, deed in lieu or short sale, as well as the latest regulations, trends and opinions. They were also briefed on how to identify the latest real estate scams and shady practices.

Burke has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Vanderbilt University, master’s and doctorate degrees in communications from Florida State University, and a law degree from Florida State University. No longer practicing law, she creates online seminars for her Real Estate Law Series® Online University and writes Real Estate Law Series® books on a wide range of real estate law topics.

Sponsored by CornerStone Title, the seminar was the second in the 2011 CornerStones of Success educational series for real estate professionals, and was approved for three hours of Continuing Education Credit.
