Do you mount broken fences and leap algae-ridden pools only to mount a shining For Sale sign in the front yard? Do you stand atop crumbling front steps with a striking look of confidence in your eyes only to find a buyer three hours later? If so, you might be Agent X.

At this year’s REO Expo, HousingWire will choose a real estate professional who has taken on moldy walls, concrete-filled pipes and dogs let loose on backyard landscapes to sell the most difficult houses known to the foreclosure industry. This brave individual will be awarded with a $100,000 marketing package worthy of drooling over.

The contest entry period ended Tuesday.

We are looking forward to congratulating the lucky winner, who will get a creative and brand development services, a profile in HousingWire’s annual Giants of REO book, online ad placement on, print placement in the magazine, a handsome trophy and a lapel pin that you can wear for the rest of the conference to establish your superiority.
