"Joel has helped me in my search for unique properties and is an asset to have on
your team. Although my criteria are very specific, he has analyzed my needs and
presents the property opportunities that are pertinent to my search. I would
recommend Joel without reservation for anyone looking for a real estate

"Joel is by far the best real estate agent you can find. He was always letting me
know of houses that met my requirements. This took months, but he was patient
and never forced me into anything, or made me feel pressured. He actually liked
showing me houses and was always the first to point out issues that I may have
with it. He took a good amount of time to find out what I really wanted. When I finally
found the house I wanted, I had to move fast. Joel kept up, with no issues, which
really helped me during a rather stressful period. Then I had to sell my old house.
Joel knew the area, priced it right and made some simple recommendations to
get it to move fast. In a market where houses sat on average for 6-9 months, Joel
had my house sold in 2 weeks, for a price I was expecting. It's not often you get to
buy or sell a home, but I will definitely use Joel again when the time comes.”

Short Sales and Foreclosure specialist in Andover MN

Coon Rapids, MN, 2/16/2010 — Joel Friday with Keller Williams Classic Realty has earned
the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification. The National
Association of REALTORS® offers the SFR certification to REALTORS® who want to help
both buyers and sellers navigate these complicated transactions, as demand for
professional expertise with distressed sales grows.

According to a recent NAR survey, nearly one-third of all existing homes sold recently were
either short sales or foreclosures.  For many real estate professionals, short sales and
foreclosures are the new “traditional” transaction.  REALTORS® who have earned the SFR
certification know how to help sellers maneuver the complexities of short sales as well as
help buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.

“As leading advocates for homeownership, REALTORS® believe that any family that loses its
home to foreclosure is one family too many, but unfortunately, there are situations in which
people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or a short sale results,” said
2009 NAR President Charles McMillan, a broker with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
in Dallas-Fort Worth. “Foreclosures and short sales can offer opportunities for home buyers
and benefit the larger community, as well, but it’s extremely important to have the help of a
real estate professional like a REALTOR® who has earned the SFR certification for these
kinds of purchases.”

The certification program includes training on how to qualify sellers for short sales, negotiate
with lenders, protect buyers, and limit risk, and provides resources to help REALTORS® stay
current on national and state-specific information as the market for these distressed
properties evolves. To earn the SFR certification, REALTORS®  are required to take one core
course, three Webinars and pass the certification exam.  For more information about the SFR
certification, visit or call 1-877-510-7855.
