As a real estate agent in Los Angeles, California, Walter has helped several sellers and buyers accomplish their real estate goals. After becoming licensed nearly 15 years ago and selling a few properties, Walter became interested in the mortgage aspect of real estate. He thought in order to be a well-rounded real estate consultant, he had to be knowledgeable of not only the sales component, but also understand how a mortgage could impact the overall transactions. His quest for knowledge and excellence drove him to work as a mortgage consultant for such companies as Countrywide Home Loans and Washington Mutual Bank. After a few years as a loan consultant, his readiness and desire for helping homeowners and prospective buyers lead him back to selling; but this time selling with a new level of confidence. Through his love for people and his dedication to his craft, he was soon spotted and selected as one of few local agents to represent Wachovia Bank as a foreclosure specialist. In this capacity, he interacted with several homeowners, buyers, real estate agents and bank asset managers; and listed and sold moderate and high-end homes in various communities across Southern California. It is with that unending passion and desire to be excellent that Walter is asking for the opportunity to represent you on your next real estate transaction. As a consultant, he wants to know your dreams, your desires, and then put his expertise to work to make them happen. He is standing by to be your trusted partner in real estate.

Julie Ann is both a Realtor with Exit Real Estate Group LA and a Loan Originator with Innovative Lending Group.

As a child, Julie Ann grew up showing houses with her grandparents (who were Realtors with their own office; her grandmother was the broker of the office and a former loan officer as well) and daydreaming about remodeling properties for new uses. Later, after graduating from Brown University and working as a financial analyst for the Italian office of a Fortune 500 company, she studied Interior Architecture at CCAC in San Francisco and worked as an interior designer and project manager for a prominent Bay Area interior design firm and in management for a Bay Area residential green construction firm.

Now as a Realtor and Loan Originator, she helps her clients buy and sell properties and arrange financing for their purchases. Her background in design and construction helps her to advise her clients about possible changes they may want to make to properties they own or are considering purchasing and her background in financial analysis helps her find creative financing solutions for clients who may not qualify for traditional loans and evaluate real estate investment opportunities. An investor herself, Julie Ann enjoys working with a wide range of clients from first time home buyers to experienced investors.

Julie Ann lived in Italy for 7 years and speaks fluent Italian. In addition to her work as a Realtor and Loan Originator, Julie Ann is also a certified professional doula (who helps women through the process of childbirth and the initial postpartum period) as well as a certified massage therapist and a life coach. So in a variety of ways Julie Ann helps her clients stay relaxed and experience more joy and ease while going through some of life’s most potentially stressful transitions!

“Regina, we want to retire someday, we need you to short sale our house”

The above quote is a true conversation Regina Wayne with Exit Real Estate Group had with her clients about their upside down  property.

What does it mean to be “Upside down” in a property? It means you owe more than what the property is worth. The property was a big financial burden to this family.

Regina was able to successfully short sale the property, fast forward three years, she helped them purchase their “Dream Home”, they have a smaller payment than the previous property and no, they didn’t win the lottery.

Regina Wayne,Realtor,Notary Public has been a full-time agent since 2000. She began her real estate career with Century 21 Desert Rock and is celebrating her 15th year with Exit Realty Franchise.

Regina’s passion is to help people buy and sell real estate. She has demonstrated her dedication to her clients by receiving awards for customer service and sales production. Over the past ten years Regina has been focused on helping her clients with the challenges of the distressed property market by her strong desire to help and to serve with compassion and integrity.

Regina is a Certified Distressed Property Specialist, she has volunteered her time to the non-profit H.E.L.P. to assist homeowners that needed help with their mortgage. Regina says, ”My specialty is helping homeowners who are in need of resources and services to help them execute the right plan regarding their upside down mortgage or to avoid foreclosure on the property."

In addition to Short Sales, Regina is certified and has experience with Probate Real Estate and works on Trust Real Estate Sales.

Regina is also a notary, which speeds up the process when clients need documents notarized for lenders and escrow officers (Certified Loan Doc Signer).
