Peggy J. Wheaton, CDPE, PCS,CSSA, NAR/CRS SS Certified, RDCPro, HAFA Cert. PSC, is the co-owner of Wheaton & Associates Real Estate Services, Inc. with her husband Bob Wheaton. They founded Wheaton & Associates Real Estate Services, Inc. in 1993. Prior to this, Peggy has been an active real estate agent since 1983 in Contra Costa County, just 50 miles east of San Francisco. Peggy's real estate career started with Veteran Real Estate, helping Veterans use their benefits to buy their 1st home. At this time VA loans were not frequently used and the 14% interest rates made sellers cooperative to pay closing costs and concessions in order to sell their home.By 1989, the Wheaton Team was manager of ERA Property Brokers and managed 17 real estate agents. The next move was to the first ReMax in northern California in 1993. Peggy recognized the need to break away from a franchise that limited her career and Wheaton & Associates, Inc. was born.The first short sale was in 1991 when the Wheaton's met with a local bank to discuss an overpriced listing that they were representing. "When we walked out of that bank with a $20,000. reduction off the principal and they agreed to pay my commission, a light bulb went off." The rest as they say is history.There began the next twenty years of short sales, loan modifications and loss mitigation consulting. Peggy has actively educated other brokers and agents in her community on this subject with seminars and training sessions, as a guest panel speaker for Tom Ferry Seminars, Women's Council of Realtors and is a recognized leader in this field from other brokers while maintaining an 85-88% close rate on all that she listed. She has been a home retention specialist for Titanium Solution since 2005. Peggy has consulted borrowers in default and offered options to avoid foreclosure and has been successful in closing over 1,100 short sales to date. She is a founding member of the Cal-Short Sale Brokers (CSSB) in the San Francisco Bay Area which meets monthly to discuss short sale strategy and brainstorm.Peggy is active in her Church and has represented them in numerous real estate transactions negotiating commercial leases, land sale and acquisition, site feasibility and analysis and campus design.She is supported by the latest technology, a secured short sale platform with unlimited capacity and a dynamic and experienced crossed trained team.While Peggy's focus has always been "outside of the box" forward thinking, her philosophy has always been the same. To continuously learn from all life experiences and strive for utmost integrity in even the most difficult situations and provide professional and personal service with responsive & knowledgeable representation.
