Heather Mergler, owner of Advanced Title & Settlements, shares with us her opinion of the efforts of her team and the benefits of the short sale process:

“As a title company witnessing the helplessness, the sense of loneliness, and guilt felt by homeowners who are facing foreclosure; we’ve decided to take a stand and do something about it!  Seven out of every ten homeowners go to foreclosure without ever seeking professional advice.  It is our goal to educate homeowners and empower them to make a decision based on their current financial situation.  When anyone is facing foreclosure they often feel out of control. We believe that educating them about their options puts them back in the driver’s seat.  Although we may not be able to save every homeowner, we are always willing to lend a helping hand to every financially distressed homeowner out there.”

Heather Mergler and her team of highly trained professionals, consistently rank among the top advocates in the DC Metro Area for families on the verge of losing their home.  They have closed hundreds of short sale transactions and are held by their peers as experts in the industry.  Heather believes the power of her profession lies in her commitment to education.  It’s that commitment that allows Advanced Title and Settlements to best represent their clients.  Among her many professional designations and accolades, Mrs. Mergler finds that her certification as a Distressed Property Expert gives her clients an incomparable upper-hand in the short sale process.

Over 85% of homeowners served by CDPE real estate professionals avoid foreclosure.  Advanced Title and Settlements, LLC teams up with local realtors and attorneys that are highly experienced in this arena to ensure the success of the short sale transactions.

In addition, we work extensively with Spanish speaking real estate professionals that have expertise in our local DC Metropolitan Market.  Our bilingual staff allow us to provide a personal experience.
