He is great! Jeff Grant at ShhortSale.com completed my sale quickly and efficiently, while taking care of every detail. He responded to all of my phone calls and emails immediately. He exceeded my expectations in completing a short sale that I was sure would be a long and difficult process and might not even get approved. Jeff got the sale approved and closed in a timely manner, while keeping me up-to-date with every step. I would recommend Jeff Grant to anyone looking to buy or sell property. - Allison H. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Standup guy Jeff Grant is an absolute professional in every sense of the word! He is prompt at returning emails, and answers phone calls in the early mornings and late evenings - even on weekends! Every interaction I had with him was better than the last, and he gives his clients 110% attention at all times. While I know he has many other clients, he made me feel like I was the only one that mattered and walked me through the entire process both promptly and efficiently. Stop looking for other real estate professionals to work with and let me make it easy for you - work with Jeff Grant. - Kelley B. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Very pleased and appreciative for his services While at first I was highly skeptical about this whole process, it became very evident that Jeff was truly knowledgeable about the short sale process. As such, my experience was much more tolerable than I was expecting. We dealt with a lender who was non-responsive and Jeff was persistent. If I had questions, he answered almost immediately (even on the weekend). He would follow up every week without fail, so that you knew where things were. He was clear about the process and his timeline was pretty accurate. Under the circumstances, this was the best option for moving forward. If I had to go about it alone, I most likely would have failed. This process provided good guidance and structure in a time of chaos. - Charles P. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in Oxnard, CA) – Client Review
It was an absolute pleasure working with Mr. Grant It was an absolute pleasure working with Mr. Grant. Not only was he extremely responsive but his professionalism and knowledge about the short sale process made working together quite easy. As a short sale specialist, I can have over 300 files at a time. Jeff stood out because of his promptness and kind working manner. I would recommend Jeff as an agent to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home his area. His clients are lucky to be able to work with such a master of his craft. - Lindsey S (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Knowledgeable and Professional I used Jeff Grant for short sales on two properties. My overall experience was great. Jeff has extremely specialized knowledge in the intricacies and details involved in the short sale process. His demeanor is very professional and courteous. Jeff promptly answers any requests and quickly follows through on all actions. My short sales were executed as pleasantly as I could imagine, I was even paid $35,000 by the bank upon closing of my last short sale! - Frank L (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Details Top Negotiating Skills In all honesty I will tell you that I deal with a lot of negotiators and the majority of them do not have the clients best interest at heart. You on the other hand have provided every document I have requested in a timely manner and have been wonderful to deal with. It´s people like you that help me do my job to the best of my ability. I wish you all the best in the future. - Leslie M. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
True Professional! The words ´thank you´ don´t say exactly how much we appreciate everything you, and ShhortSale.com, have done for our family. The hardest thing for anyone to do is to TRUST another person with their financial future. From our first conversation with you, we not only trusted you and your company, but we always felt you had our best intentions in mind. Your positive demeanor and never-say-die attitude lead to our house closing in a very quick time period. And for that, we TRULY thank you and your company. - William B. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Well done, thanks again! "I have to say that my experience with you and ShhortSale.com was awesome! You were always available for my questions - even nights and weekends! Your advice was very beneficial and you made a very stressful event very smooth. I was very pleased with the end result of getting the home short sale completed in a very timely manner. If anyone I knew was contemplating a short sale, they have my recommendation to call Jeff Grant! Well done and thanks once again! - Erik J. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
LEGIT I had a fantastic experience with ShhortSale.com. My shortsale was handled extremely professionally, discreetly, and in a very timely manner. My communications were always returned quickly, I was amazed as the staff´s inside knowledge dealing with the negotiators and bank representatives, and was pleasantly surprised my shortsale was completed so fast. Although this was a very difficult time in my life, ShhortSale.com alleviated my stress over the sale of my home versus a foreclosure. Thanks again! - Scott F. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Thanks Jeff It is an honor and privilege to have worked with Jeff for our short sale. Like so many people, we had previously tried working with our lender and bank to see what could be done about our condo which had gone upside down and lost about 60% of its value in a matter of 3-4 years after purchasing it during the height of the market in 2005. After several failed attempts over a span of roughly 4 years to modify or adjust the terms of our loan and even do an outright sale, we had given up hope. Then a friend of mine who had been helped by Jeff referred us to him, and we are so grateful for that! Jeff did the seemingly impossible and after multiple bids, a couple fickle buyers who walked away mid-deal, he got our house sold in 6 short months! Jeff is to be commended for all of his hard work. He keeps you up-to-date and informed every step of the way, is knowledge about the market and getting the best deal possible for you, anticipates every move these lenders make, and above all else he a people person with your best interest at heart. It was wonderful having someone who could relate to this entire experience. Jeff comes with our utmost recommendation and we are very grateful that he made the process so easy and fast for us so that we could move on and focus on our future. Thank you Jeff! - Mike & Valerie P. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
True professional If ShhortSale.com were a nationwide Company I would gladly work for your Dallas office! You have been good to work with, and I want to let our good agents know that we appreciate their efforts in holding deals like this together - Frank H. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Maximum ethics Jeff Grant of ShhortSale.com is nothing short of a Godsend. I was referred to him by a friend and have never looked back. I was one who had truly suffered during these trying economic times. I had made up my mind that foreclosure was my ONLY option. The shame, guilt and helplessness that accompanies this process were a constant in my mind and taking its toll. From the first moment I talked to Jeff, all was lifted. He, from the first moment, made me his "customer". Not one time, not even fleeting, did I feel that he wasn´t in my corner. He handled every transaction, negotiating was a nice piece, with class, dignity, integrity and with maximum ethics. The agent who works with him was just awesome. At the end of the day, I was never made to feel that I was "shortsaling" a property, only that I was selling a property...and for that I thank him. I would and will refer to him any and every time I get the chance. Keep up the GREAT work!!! - Lori M (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in San Diego, CA – Client Review
#1 Unfortunately I went through a divorce and was forced to sell my home in a down market. I had no idea what my options were so I contacted Jeff Grant at Sand and Sea Investments/ShhortSale.com. He explained the process in detail to me and answered all my questions. After doing some research, I felt it very important to go with someone who has completed hundreds of short sales. Jeff has a thorough knowledge of the process and has worked with countless numbers of lenders. I had two lenders and they proved to be difficult to deal with in this down market. Jeff talked me through the process and was readily available to answer all my questions and calm my fears. Due to the very difficult housing market, it took awhile to sell my home yet Jeff remained very competent and professional. He proved to have excellent negotiation skills and worked well with my lenders to get my short sale approved. He is very organized and I am convinced his methods are what led to the the approval of my short sale. He went above and beyond what I expected from an agent. I am very appreciative of his hard work and expertise. I would highly recommend Jeff Grant if you are considering a RE Transaction - Paul H. & Alycia C. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in Mission Hills, San Diego, CA) – Client Review
We are lucky to have found him "ShhortSale.com has been a life saver. We owned two homes in two different states and lived in another state due to a job transfer. We did not know what we were going to do. Jeff at ShhortSale coordinated everything. He handled all of the coorespondence and negotiations with the bank. He set us up with real estate agents in both states and was always available to answer questions. The only thing we had to do was sign the necessary paperwork to get our homes sold. We were truely lucky to have found him. - Terri S. (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Prompt and professional I wanted to take a minute and let you know that I greatly appreciate your promptness, and the tray that you help support the best needs of customer, and cooperation during this short sale. You make my job easier. Thanks again. - Kasandra W (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Master negotiator We just recently shortsale our house. Jeff Grant handled the negotiation with the bank.It sold just like a regular sale (we sold two houses previously). My husband found Jeff through ShhortSale.com. Without any referral, we had to put our trust to Jeff and his partner. They did not let us down. He exceeded our expectations.Good job Jeff and thanks a lot! We won´t hesitate to recommend you. - Tyrone & Selmar H. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Committed to us I wanted to take a moment to give you our sincere and heart-felt thanks for your assistance during what has been one of the most stressful times of our lives. Due to my mother´s health, we needed to relocate quickly, but we owed almost double what our house was currently worth - foreclosure seemed to be our only option. Not only did you offer us hope for another solution, you guided us through a labyrinthine process that would have been nearly impossible to navigate on our own. Now, 2 1/12 months after we first contacted you, we have successfully completed the short sale of our property. I would recommend you and your company to anyone considering a short sale of their property. I am convinced that if we had tried to negotiate a short sale on our own, we´d currently be facing the pain of foreclosure. Because of your untiring commitment to us, I can breathe for the first time in months. Thank you. - Mindy D. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Experienced and Ethical Jeff Grant is an experienced and ethical professional, and acts in the best interest of the sellers. I have worked many deals with them, and they consistently and effectively perform with professionalism. I recommend their services to any seller seeking short sale assistance. - Tina C. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
high recommendation Your communication and expertise made me confident that our sale was in the right hands. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks so much for your help.you made this process painless. - Justin B. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Sincerely - thank you! I´d like to extend my sincerest thank you to you both for all your assistance while broking my short-sell agreement. Given the difficulties of negotiating with CITI, GMAC and Bayview Finical, I´m pleased to say that I ended up owing less to the lenders than the covered costs of selling my home. I am shocked and amazed. Thank you again for all your hard work. I will be certain to recommend your services to others in similar situations. - Aaron A. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
prompt and professional When we agreed to the sale of our home, I expected the whole process to be painfully agonizing. We were then referred to Jeff Grant of Sand & Sea Investments & ShhortSale.com. He was very prompt to contact us and to get the process going. Jeff answered every one of our questions and made us feel comfortable with our decision. Jeff was always available to answer questions and responded to emails the same day. He really worked his tail off and quite honestly, I´m not sure how he does it. I am 100% confident that our short sale was approved solely based on the dedication and hard work of Jeff. If you find yourself in the situation where you need to consider a Short Sale, I would recommend no one else. - Brian & Wendy A. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
quick, professional, communicative I used Jeff´s services to purchase a condo in UTC. From the start, Jeff and his assistant Abe were on top of things. They scheduled a number of showings, all of which were interesting. One of the showings they found was the unit I ultimately bought. The negotiations process went smoothly and I was able to get an excellent deal. Then, escrow and closing went equally smoothly. Jeff stayed on top of things and we closed on time. I am an experienced real estate buyer and have been involved in many transactions. I can safely say based on my experience that Jeff is an A+ agent, whom I highly recommend. - Michael B (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in La Jolla, CA) – Client Review
Character & Morale Jeff did exactly what he said he´d do - sell my house for top dollar. He is quick, responsive, respectful, and kind. Then, his extensive experience is matched only by a handful of Brokers. I highly recommend his services. - Natalie G (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review

Short Sale Expert I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who needs help with a short sale. He was 100% reliable, thorough, responsive and extremely helpful every step of the way. He worked long and odd hours to get my sale done. A short sale or foreclosure can be scary and he is the type of person and professional that will get the job done efficiently, and from my experience, better than anyone else could have done. - Michael S (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in Los Angeles, CA) – Client Review
Sold two of my homes Working with Jeff was an incredible experience. He´s friendly, responsive, and knowledgeable. I had two properties in San Diego, and I didn´t know many people down there. Jeff came highly recommended and didn´t disappoint. He got my properties cleaned up, listed and sold at good prices quickly. He even risked life and limb to protect one of them against vandals. I wouldn´t be surprised if, at night, he dons a mask and tights, and dolls out swift vigilante justice via kung-fu skills and real estate knowledge upon those who would wish to do evil in the San Diego area. - Kory F (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Stop looking for other agents. Jeff is who you should work with Jeff Grant is an absolute professional in every sense of the word!

Short sale master Jeff helped me with a short sale that involved non-traditional lenders: California Housing Finance Agency and the City of LA. I was told by others that it would be impossible to get these lenders to approve a short sale given my particular situation. It was not an easy process, but Jeff was awesome. He was "on it" the whole time, sent frequent updates, was accessible by phone and email, and responded to all my questions promptly. He was extremely professional and pleasant to work with, and most importantly, he got the job done. I highly recommend Jeff! - J. Kim (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in Los Angeles, CA) – Client Review
5 Stars!!! I cannot recommend Jeff highly enough. He handled the negotiation of my short sale with both the first and second lenders. The first was held by Greentree, the second by Specialized Loan Servicing. To anyone in the know, these are the two most difficult mortgage servicers to deal with. At each point in the process Jeff was clear, knowledgeable, experienced, professional and calm even when he was talking me off a ledge. A short sale can be a frustrating, panic-inducing experience. I can´t imagine what it would have been like without Jeff´s responsiveness, candor and steady hand. 5 Stars!!! - Erik (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Jeff is great I honestly did not believe I would be eligible for a short sale. Jeff quickly reviewed the information I sent him and the process was started. Jeff connected me with a local realtor who worked in partnership with Jeff. Jeff was able to stall the foreclosure process while the short sale was being approved. I would encourage anyone who is in the middle of a strategic default to consult with Jeff. Foreclosure may not be your only option. - Tammie H (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Selling Master Jeff, I need to thank you so much for all of the hard work that you did to make this an easy process for me. Between the open houses, being on top of phone calls to Chase daily, and submitting all of the paperwork to the right people, you made it go very smoothly for me. I was entirely put at ease and thoroughly trusted you through the whole process. I can not thank you enough. I have heard from so many people that short selling their home was a nightmare. With putting everything into your hands, you have made it remarkably easy and painless for me. Thank you so very, very much. I am so grateful that Bridy Condon recommended you and and will remind her to keep referring clients to you. - Susan (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in El Cajon, CA) – Client Review
Helped me through my short sale, wonderfully! I enlisted Jeff to guide me through a short sell attempt. The process was emotional and complex. As time went on I realized I had the best person possible doing my negotiating for me. I was sending in a person with a swagger that only comes from an intimate knowledge of the process. He was honest even at his disadvantage .He was prompt and available at unexpected hours. I am not the type to give a testimonial, but I am making an exception in this case. My outcome was guided to a successful conclusion and Jeff is deserving of all accolades which come his way. - Terry M. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in Rancho Santa Fe, CA) – Client Review
Jeff is a great Negotiator Jeff was very instrumental in the negotiations of my short sale with the lender. He was very prompt and professional. We had a pretty tough time with the bank but he was persistent and I don´t know how we would have gotten this done without him. Thank you again Jeff! - Eric R. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in Carlsbad, CA) – Client Review
Sold our home for top dollar Jeff helped my husband and I navigate through the laborious process of a short sale on our home with a level of expertise and professionalism that we didn´t think possible! He kept us informed at every step, and offered reassurance and support the entire time. It was the best decision we have made in these tumultuous financial times to let Jeff handle the sale of our home! We wish him continued success in this business - he deserves it! - Vickie & Ernie Y (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in Vista, CA) – Client Review
Jeff is always calm I´m a college professor and I still found the bank´s responses to my stressful situation confusing at best, bullying at worst. From day one I was very grateful and relieved to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Jeff Grant in my corner. He made me feel like I was his only client and I strongly recommend him to anyone considering a short sale. - Phil B (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in Las Vegas, NV) – Client Review
God Bless You Jeff Grant All I can say is if you need to short sale you need to use Jeff, he told my wife and I he would get it done and he did! I can not say enough about how proffesional Jeff is, he walked us through the entire process and we felt like we were his only client because of the personal attention to our situation.. He answered all of our questions and kept us informed throughout the process. Our house was in Colorado and Jeff is in San Diego, Ca. so yes he can get it done in other states. God bless you Jeff Grant you have made it possible for us to move on with our lives - Kirk A (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Delight to work with Jeff Grant was a complete delight to work with on the short sale of my San Diego property. He answered all my concerns and earned my trust very early in the process by his prompt and professional attitude and warm support. With his patience and expertise we were able to close very quickly on my property, minimizing the stress of the short sale. - Pam W (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Diligent & Delightful Jeff worked diligently and competently to quickly close the sale of our condo, and I´m very happy I decided to go with him. He understood our needs and delivered in full. Whether you´re buying or selling, I´d recommend his services. He´s a good guy and very professional. If you´re reading this, thanks Jeff! - Logan F.

Extraordinary Efforts! Debbie and I are most-appreciative of your extraordinary efforts in helping us find a second home in San Diego. Your patience, thoroughness and diligence resulted in a great fit for our criteria and we are very pleased with our home in Coronado. I know this process was a little longer than we both anticipated, and I want you to know your willingness to stay the course was exceptional and representative of the excellent commitment you have to your work. Rest assured, we will recommend your services and Sand & Sea Investments to anyone we know interested in real estate in San Diego. - Charlie & Debbie S. (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in Coronado, CA) – Client Review
Best RE Company in SD Sand & Sea Investments is the best real estate company out there. He served us incredibly well, and continues to - even after our deal closed. I recommend him to anyone! - Scott & Paula F. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in Crown Point, San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Jeff helped me sell my home "I wanted to take a moment to give you our sincere and heart-felt thanks for your assistance during what has been one of the most stressful times of our lives. Due to my mother´s health, we needed to relocate quickly, but we owed almost double what our house was currently worth - foreclosure seemed to be our only option. Not only did you offer us hope for another solution, you guided us through a labyrinthine process that would have been nearly impossible to navigate on our own. Now, 2 1/12 months after we first contacted you, we have successfully completed the short sale of our property. I would recommend you and your company to anyone considering a short sale of their property. I am convinced that if we had tried to negotiate a short sale on our own, we´d currently be facing the pain of foreclosure. Because of your untiring commitment to us, I can breathe for the first time in months. Thank you." - Mindy D. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
He´s helped our entire family! Jeff and his team did an outstanding job is selling our home of 18 years. A short sale with some special conditions. Jeff coached us and kept is in the loop all the time. We believed this sale could take 9 months to a year, and with Jeff´s help is closed in less then 8 months. Always ready, always prepaired and always on the mark with the information needed to move forward. Great job, our 1st sale with Jeff but maybe more to come. Great working with him and his team. His helping a family member a few years early is how we hooked up with Jeff. - Ted & Anne C. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in Oceanside, CA) – Client Review
Very impressed... Jeff has the expertise to effectively navigate the short-sale process. He sold our condo, a process which required extensive communication with the bank, buyer and seller. Based in San Diego, his extensive network within the industry aided in the successful sale of our condo in Santa Cruz. With courteous communication, he provided regular updates throughout the ordeal. I was very impressed with Jeff´s negotiation skills when representing our best interest with the bank. I highly recommend working with Jeff. - Brian H (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Francisco, CA) – Client Review
Thank you, Mr. Grant It was truly a pleasure working with Mr. Grant on the short sale of our property. I can honestly say he put a lot of hard work and time into the process. He went above and beyond the call of duty. One of the things I really admired about Mr. Grant was he was very proactive in keeping me informed of what was going on with the process at all times. Thank you to Mr. Grant and shhortsale.com for your professionalism and dedication in seeing the short sale through. - Dan & Erin H (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in Chandler, AZ) – Client Review
He cleaned up our previous agent´s mess We had tried doing a short sale of our home once before. We pulled out because it was so frustrating, and we didn´t feel like the agent and broker we were working with understood the process or cared enough to understand it to be effective with the banks, nor provide us any comfort in proceeding further. Eventually we got referred to Shhortsale.com, and Jeff not only worked closely with us the whole way through, he really helped ease our hearts and minds with all the knowledge and experience he provided. We could not be any happier with the great service and assistance he gave. - Michael (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in Chula Vista, CA) – Client Review
He´s helped me on a number of transactions I have had the privilege of working with Jeff Grant on a number of real estate transactions. I have found him to be absolutely one of the best. He is extremely knowledgeable, responsive and excellent at communicating throughout the process. He truly cares about his clients. Jeff is persistent and will do whatever it takes. I would recommend Jeff Grant to anyone in the area looking for a great real estate broker. - Kathy S (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2009 in San Jose, CA) – Client Review
We highly recommend Jeff My husband and I meet Jeff though a company called "Youwalkaway", which helps people like us to strategically foreclose, short sale or re modification. Jeff helped us though the daunting process of a short sale. He is very knowledgeable in this process. He was very understanding to our situation and helped guide us though this process that is very time consuming and titus work. We wouldn´t hesitate for one second in recommending Jeff to anyone ( Santee Ca) - Melissa S. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in Santee, CA) – Client Review
Jeff has your back! Jeff and I have done several deals together over the years with him as the negotiator on behalf of the Sellers (borrowers) and me as the listing agent across the country in Atlanta. Jeff is organized, has great internal bank contacts to move things along, and he is always so calm during a process that can be both scary and nerve wracking for not only the Sellers but the Buyers too. You can´t go wrong with having Jeff Grant in your corner in any state in the entire country! - Ursula H (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in Atlanta, GA) – Client Review
Selling Master What do I think of Jeff Grant, FANTASTIC is the word! With nearly two decades in Real Estate Finance, I´ve worked with some excellent professionals over that time, but none more competent than Jeff. Recently I counseled a young couple on their options for improving a bad situation they had with their home. They were down to a single income, they owed a lot more on their current mortgage than the home was worth, and they were losing sleep worrying about the future. A loan modification was not possible due to income limitations nor was a refinance. It was clear they needed a fresh start so I brought Jeff Grant in to do his magic. A short time later, they had sold the home with the banks accepting less than were owed, and now this young couple is on their way to healing their credit and buying again within the next two years. They couldn´t be happier. This only happens because Jeff knows what he is doing, and has personally handled over hundreds of distressed property liquidations. He is a tremendous negotiator and knows who to talk to at the banks and how to present the offers in the best possible light to maximize the chance of success. His record speaks for itself. As a Real Estate Radio show host, I am a huge consumer advocate and want all listeners to make wise decisions regarding their Real Estate transactions. I wouldn´t hesitate to recommend Jeff Grant to any of my clients who are facing similar difficulties. - Jeff C. (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in Del Mar, CA) – Client Review
A True Professional Jeff is extremely efficient as a negotiator. I received status updates on a regular basis and received short sale approvals in a timely manner. When doing short sales there isn´t always any certainty on time frames so I was pleasantly surprised when I got the approvals so quickly! As well as be extremely efficient, Jeff is very professional and whatever challenges we were facing during any transaction he kept on moving forward...a quality that is hard to find. He has a deep knowledge of the inner workings of the banks and has the ability to work inside of those perimeters and speak to the right people if necessary. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Jeff and hope to again in the future!" - Nicole N. M. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Got me out of $50k in house debt! Jeff really worked a miracle. My 2nd lender was known as notoriously difficult to deal with. They were a challenge and wanted a huge payoff, but Jeff was persistent and patient resulting in my short sale completing in less than 3 months and with a dramatically reduced ($50,000!) payoff. And all through this process he was frequently in touch, responded quickly to questions, and explained the process thoroughly and expertly. I truly would not have emerged from this unfortunate situation so well without him. - Brian B. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in Riverside, CA) – Client Review
Took care of ALL my housing problems! Gong through a short sale is not one of the most enjoyable experiences, but ShhortSale.com was able to deflect most of the annoying problems associated with the process. It took a lot longer than we thought it would, but Jeff hung in there and was able to get it done so the bank and I were both satisfied. If you are going through the foreclosure process and a short sale is possible I would highly recommend using ShhortSale.com - Gary S. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in Oceanside, San Diego, CA) – Client Review
A True Expert I honestly don´t know how I would have gotten through the short sale process if it weren´t for Jeff and Katie, the local agent Jeff worked with. It was such a relief to have Jeff on my side to explain what had to be done, answer my questions and reassure me at every step of the way. Once we got an offer on the house, Jeff shifted into high gear, working with the bank at every step. He was able to negotiate excellent terms. I can´t imagine how I could have done any better. - Marsha S. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2013 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
His services saved us We were in overheads and about to go into foreclosure. We didn´t know what to do. Jeff at ShhortSale.com saved us!!! We stumbled upon them by accident, the best accident I´ve ever had! The staff was great, they took the time to explain the whole process. They did it all from supplying the realtor to negotiating with the lenders. I would recommend ShhortSale.com to anyone in distress. Our burden has been lifted! - Alisha M. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in Atlanta, GA) – Client Review
I wholeheartedly recommend Jeff We are grateful for the positive experience and tremendous assistance Jeff Grant and his team at ShhortSale.com provided through our short sale. We were financially stressed by a first and second mortgage, and like many others facing a down market, we spent the last 3 years applying but not qualifying for loan refinance, modification or government assistance. We feared bankruptcy and finally believed our only decision was to "walk away", yet we could not fathom the idea of just abandoning our home. While exploring foreclosure, we were fortunate to be referred to Jeff to review our option for short sale. We heard a small percentage of short sales are successful, but we took the chance and contacted Jeff anyway. Distance kept us from meeting in person, though from our initial discussion with Jeff, the demeanor in his voice and the calmness he exudes, we found him to be sincerely understanding of our financial situation and our emotions toward our house. Listening to Jeff share his knowledge of the process and his experiences with lenders helped ease our initial doubts so we could put our trust in him to move forward with the short sale. Jeff coordinated our real estate agent whom we immediately felt comfortable with. They are competent, compassionate, and honest people. Jeff was dedicated to us from the beginning, gave guidance for us to prepare our home for sale and gave a realistic estimated timeframe of the process so we could remain in our home for as long as possible. Jeff and his team kept us informed, answered our questions, and sought input from us as his correspondence progressed with the lenders. Needless to say, our process was not without shortcomings or turbulence with the lenders and agents! If anyone tells you a short sale is not emotionally draining, they are lying. Jeff and his team showed true compassion and quick turnaround when the 2nd lender that Jeff has known to be extremely difficult denied the first buyers´ offer, followed by the second buyers ´walking away´ when negotiations were at a final stage! Even when we thought all was lost for the third buyer´s offer, our trust was strong in Jeff who remained persistent in negotiations with the lenders and succeeded to close. In less than 6 months, Jeff and his team helped us emerge from what could have been a truly negative outcome. Worried that we would never be able to find another place to live, given that our credit scores dropped from nearly 800 down to 640, Jeff assured us that things would work out and we once again we kept the faith. So here we are, two months later and getting settled in to our new home that we are leasing. Yes, the emotional hurt of losing the home we put so much time, effort and money into is still there, but with each passing day, it gets easier knowing that part of our life is behind and we´ve begun a new chapter. Without Jeff´s support, we honestly believe we would be in a much ´darker place´. We wholeheartedly recommend Jeff and ShhortSale.com to anyone who feels all hope is lost or heard nightmarish short sale stories. Words will never be enough for what Jeff and his team helped us through - Bruce & Melissa (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
He absolutely has my best interests in mind... Jeff has kept me updated every step of the way.

He has been a pleasure to work with! - Peter M (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Jeff is HIGHLY recommended! When we agreed to do a Short Sale of our home, I expected the whole process to be painfully agonizing. We were then referred to Jeff Grant of Sand & Sea Investments & ShhortSale.com. He was very prompt to contact us and to get the process going. Jeff answered every one of our questions and made us feel comfortable with our decision. Jeff was always available to answer questions and responded to emails the same day. He really worked his tail off and quite honestly, I´m not sure how he does it. I am 100% confident that our short sale was approved solely based on the dedication and hard work of Jeff. If you find yourself in the situation where you need to consider a Short Sale, I would recommend no one else. - Brian M. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in Carlsbad, San Diego, CA) – Client Review

Jeff is one of the best! I´ve had the privilege of working with Jeff several times now, and he gets more impressive each time. So many in the industry can either understand the big picture or get into the finite details, but Jeff has the unique ability to do both. He´s masterful in the art of the deal, and has even managed to resuscitate deals that I thought were long gone. In addition, in his years of short sale expertise he has acquired numerous relationships and understands the short sale process better than anyone else I´ve worked with. Many say that their "Short Sale Experts", but Jeff really is. I hope to be able to do a lot more business with him in the future! - Jeff has helped me sell or buy multiple homes (Bought a home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review

We are lucky to have found him ShhortSale.com has been a life saver. We owned two homes in two different states and lived in another state due to a job transfer. We did not know what we were going to do. Jeff at ShhortSale coordinated everything. He handled all of the coorespondence and negotiations with the bank. He set us up with real estate agents in both states and was always available to answer questions. The only thing we had to do was sign the necessary paperwork to get our homes sold. We were truely lucky to have found him. - Terri (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Sold my home in Mission Hills Unfortunately I went through a divorce and was forced to sell my home in a down market. I had no idea what my options were so I contacted Jeff Grant at Sand and Sea Investments/ShhortSale.com. He explained the process in detail to me and answered all my questions. After doing some research, I felt it very important to go with someone who has completed hundreds of short sales. Jeff has a thorough knowledge of the process and has worked with countless numbers of lenders. I had two lenders and they proved to be difficult to deal with in this down market. Jeff talked me through the process and was readily available to answer all my questions and calm my fears. Due to the very difficult housing market, it took awhile to sell my home yet Jeff remained very competent and professional. He proved to have excellent negotiation skills and worked well with my lenders to get my short sale approved. He is very organized and I am convinced his methods are what led to the the approval of my short sale. He went above and beyond what I expected from an agent. I am very appreciative of his hard work and expertise. I would highly recommend Jeff Grant if you are considering a short sale. - Paul H (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2012 in Mission Hills, San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Jeff is very nice Jeff Grant of ShhortSale.com is nothing short of a Godsend. I was referred to him by a friend and have never looked back. I was one who had truly suffered during these trying economic times. I had made up my mind that foreclosure was my ONLY option. The shame, guilt and helplessness that accompanies this process were a constant in my mind and taking its toll. From the first moment I talked to Jeff, all was lifted. He, from the first moment, made me his "customer". Not one time, not even fleeting, did I feel that he wasn´t in my corner. He handled every transaction, negotiating was a nice piece, with class, dignity, integrity and with maximum ethics. The agent who works with him was just awesome. At the end of the day, I was never made to feel that I was "shortsaling" a property, only that I was selling a property...and for that I thank him. I would and will refer to him any and every time I get the chance. Keep up the GREAT work!!! - Lori M L (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in Miami, FL) – Client Review

Jeff is an expert Mr. Grant has represented my parents and myself on numerous real estate transactions. Mr. Grant is an exceptional real estate agent.

Sold our home, then helped us buy another! Jeff helped my wife and I sell our condominium in Normal Heights through a short sale. We accomplished this AFTER Jeff helped us beat out four other offers (all for the same price) for us to buy dream home near the beach, which we closed on at the end of 2009. Jeff was masterful in getting the banks (we had two loans) to accept a short sale for our condo, and he was outstanding in negotiating with the selling agent when we bought our house to get her to accept our offer. Jeff was an expert real estate agent throughout the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current home, staying in constant communication every step of the way, and we owe him our deepest gratitude. - Jeff is GREAT (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2010 in Normal Heights, San Diego, CA) – Client Review
Jeff always protects your best interests Jeff is always prompt in responding to voice mails and emails. He is a great negotiator and served our best interests. Jeff has experience working short sales with many different lenders, which definately helped in navigating us through the process. He is up front and honest with expectations. During the process, I had full confidence in him as my agent. Jeff is a cut above the rest. I have worked with many people in real estate, and place Jeff at the top of my list of people. No other agent has even come close to his expertise, skill, professionalism, and commitment to working for the best interests of his client (a novel idea). Without hesitation I would recommend Jeff and work with him again. - Deborah (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review

He helped us buy, sell, then buy again! We used Jeff grant to both purchase and sell our downtown condo. It was a short sale that Jeff got us that nearly foreclosed one day after we nabbed it off the market. We paid well under market value as he is a short sale guru. We turned and sold it one year later for over 50k in profit. We have referred him to several friends since then and plan to use him in the future when we buy and sell again! We were very painful clients and ran him all over town for two years. We were unsure where we were going to buy and couldn´t narrow our location. He never once rushed us, pushed us, or showed frustration with us. We felt he was very professional and honest. - Kurt O. (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in San Diego, CA) – Client Review

It´s an honor and privilege to work with Jeff It is an honor and privilege to have worked with Jeff for our short sale. Like so many people, we had previously tried working with our lender and bank to see what could be done about our condo which had gone upside down and lost about 60% of its value in a matter of 3-4 years after purchasing it during the height of the market in 2005. After several failed attempts over a span of roughly 4 years to modify or adjust the terms of our loan and even do an outright sale, we had given up hope. Then a friend of mine who had been helped by Jeff referred us to him, and we are so grateful for that! Jeff did the seemingly impossible and after multiple bids, a couple fickle buyers who walked away mid-deal, he got our house sold in 6 short months! Jeff is to be commended for all of his hard work. He keeps you up-to-date and informed every step of the way, is knowledge about the market and getting the best deal possible for you, anticipates every move these lenders make, and above all else he a people person with your best interest at heart. It was wonderful having someone who could relate to this entire experience. Jeff comes with our utmost recommendation and we are very grateful that he made the process so easy and fast for us so that we could move on and focus on our future. Thank you Jeff! - Mike VP (Sold home with Jeff Grant in 2011 in Escondido, San Diego, CA) – Client Review

He took me from being nervous and unsure to being confident that this was the right thing to do. He was on top of the banks and had the approval letters back to us in a very timely manner.
