Sandi Bauman, Chico CA, Earns NAR Short Sales and Foreclosure Certification


Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Chico CA

Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Chico CA




Buyers and Sellers Benefit from REALTOR® Expertise in Distressed Sales

Chico, CA 12/30/2011 — Sandi Bauman, Broker at Chico Homes, 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.

About Tara Taylor

tara t

I am Tara Taylor, Realtor and “Buyer’s Specialist” for The Sandi Bauman Team! at Chico Homes. Our ‘Top Producing’ Real Estate TEAM specializes in providing exceptional service to our clients.

Exceptional service to me is all about integrity, commitment, loyalty, relationships, fairness, and professionalism.

The Golden Rule is an instinctual part of our business at Chico Homes and we strive to make sure every client gets the same quality of service and satisfaction.

Originally from the Midwest, I was born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana, in a desirable college town, much like Chico. I graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology in 2001. After graduation, I quickly moved to California and found Chico to be a wonderful place to call home. After finding a new “home” in Chico, I earned my Real Estate license and placed my license with a boutique real estate office here in town. I am dedicated to my profession and I am one who truly loves my job (and this great town)!!

Every client deserves the utmost respect, loyalty, and a great home! My accountability and reliability towards my clients is an essential part of my real estate business. I am accessible to my clients and will return my calls in a timely manner. I also dedicate a great deal of my time and energy to keep up-to-date with the changing market, staying educated on real estate matters affecting the consumer, and looking to the future of home investment. I will work hard to make the buying process a fun, success story for you! I believe that my commitment to “above and beyond” customer service is the difference.

Thank for your interest in The Sandi Bauman Team! at Chico Home. I look forward to working with you on your first or next real estate venture! Let’s go house hunting!!

About Sandi Bauman, Top 1% Producing Chico Realtor

Sandi Bauman

I can assist you with your Butte, Glenn and Tehama County REO files! Please call 530-864-5407 or email [email protected] for a resume detailing my default industry experience.  I am one of the primary Chico REO listing agents and work with more than 30 companies.  I have references, experienced venders, available capital for repairs and CFK’s, and task management software for the most streamlined transaction possible.

Let me introduce myself by saying that my name is Sandi Bauman. I am a top 1% producing Chico Realtor, and Broker/Owner of Chico Homes. HOWEVER, I have spent a lot of time in your shoes- whether you are a buyer, a seller, or somewhere in between, I know very well what it is like to be right there! I encountered my first real estate transaction at age 19, and have had the benefit (or disappointment) of working with quite a number of salespersons, brokers, and title companies since then. I understand how frustrating and confusing it is to be a consumer relying on a Realtor who just doesn’t seem to fit your needs or expectations.

What are your needs?

Well, according to a recent article, the top three complaints voiced by consumers about real estate agents were as follows:

1. The agent was inaccessible and didn’t return my calls in a timely manner;

2. The agent didn’t take the time to really get to know me and therefore, my real estate needs;

3. The agent didn’t seem to have my best interest at heart.

My philosophy is simple. I treat each client with the same respect, professionalism, and integrity I would hope to find if I were the one doing the hiring. Phone calls and questions via e-mail will be returned at the earliest possible convenience. When it comes to my personal life, I want my questions answered, and my calls returned! I expect that you are looking for the same.

I make a concerted effort to learn as much as possible about my client’s lifestyle, special interests, and ideals in order to respect their time. This will narrow the list of possibilities when it comes to previewing properties, and let us focus on what you really want.

At the end of the day, if you’re not happy, I’m not happy! I will go to great lengths to accomplish your goals in a professional yet personal manner that exceeds your expectations. To me, it’s not about closing the deal. It’s about having you satisfied with the way your transaction was handled.

Give me a call! I’m looking forward to working with you.

Tour of Lights! Chico CA Real Estate Homes

Chico CA Real Estate Christmas lights picThe Tour of Lights is a wonderful local Chico CA holiday tradition.

Chico residents love to pile in their cars after dark to take a leisurely tour of all the brilliantly decorated Chico area homes.

For some, it’s a grand event, worthy of a limousine rental! Our family likes to enjoy Christmas music playing on the radio, and we always bring along mugs of hot chocolate or apple cider. Add in candy canes and Grandma and Grandad, and we have beautiful holiday memories in the making!

My favorite part is watching the faces of the children as they spot one unexpected treat after another: Santa in a sailboat, angels on rooftops, moving elves, and magical light displays. Of course, half the fun is viewing all of the Chico home properties gloriously lit up at night!

The Chico Enterprise Record made it very easy to enjoy the Tour of Lights. No sense in aimlessly wandering the streets…  they’ve got all the best homes already mapped out!

  • RELATED: Homes shine for lights tour
  • If you are new to Chico, or visiting for the first time, the Tour of Lights is a MUST HAVE holiday event! Make a point of viewing our beautiful Chico homes, and enjoy the contagious Christmas spirit evident throughout our friendly neighborhoods. You won’t be disappointed!
