Bryan & College Station, Texas are not immune to foreclosures.  Remember most of the time getting behind is not because of a bad decision it is because of LIFE. It is because employment changed or illness or an unexpected expense. A short sale (where we help you sell before the bank takes the property back) lets YOU be in more control. Call anytime and to just talk about your options. YOU DO HAVE OPTIONS – Don’t let foreclosure be the one chosen for you.
