I was and am still in contact with Shellpoint Mortgage over a short sale in Southern California. I was asked by a friend that is a broker to send an anynymouse offer directly to shellpoint mortgage negotiator, his name is Mr.
Burger. I did and followed up on it, and to my surprise they then denied an earlier lower offer that they had accepted from a real bonofied buyer. My broker friend asked me to do this because she was fired by homeowner and was pissed, and decided to mess with them to get even.
To date after two years shellpoint still interested in my offer which I have no intention of going through with. But I still have to play the game to keep my broker friend happy.
