REO Listing Agent Profile

Welcome Asset Managers!

Profitable Properties, Inc. wants your REO Listing Business!!  We are an experienced REO Brokerage specializing in Pre-Foreclosure and Foreclosure properties for over a decade.  We have a fully-trained, experienced team to assure prompt service and to make sure that every part of the REO listing process is handled perfectly, BUT we are small enough to ensure that you are not just a number. 

We pride ourselves on individualized service and making things happen.  Asset managers deal directly with Broker, Valerie Crane, who is personally involved with every asset.  We answer our phones (!) and respond to emails, not only from asset manangers but also from buyer's agents.  We believe that communication is the single biggest attribute we can give you.

We not only do our jobs, but we help you do yours more effectively by getting tasks done in advance of their due dates and by spending time making sure that our BPO's are accurate and realistic so that the property sells for the most money in the shortest time frame.  We approach tentants and foreclosed owners with compassioned-reality in order to gain their cooperation in leaving the property quickly and without damage.  When we are responsible for Property Preservation we make sure to hire the best contractors who work for the most reasonable prices...just like we would if we were hiring them for our own home.  When the bank hires their own crew, we work closely with them too, in order to assure that our assets are their priority.  We keep on top of buyer's agents, mortgage brokers and title companies to make sure that once a property is under contract it STAYS under contract and closes on time. 

Our offices are state-of-the-art utilizing the best technology available.  The entire staff is trained on all of the portals so that everything from Occupancy Checks to Expense Reimbursement are done proficiently and accurately the very first time.  We are Equator/REOtrans Certified Platinum members, use Res.Net on a daily basis and are experienced registered users of Lender Processing Services, Old Republic, Disposolutions and various other asset managment portals.  We know this business!

In order to make sure that we are always on top of our game, we stay constantly involved in our industry.  We are members of REOPRO Default Servicing Professionals, are subscribers to managingreo daily news site and were attendees at the Lender Processing Services By-Invitation-Only Annual Default Servicing Conference.  We have also completed specialized education including Loss Mitigation Training Institute REO Broker Training amongst others. We are committed to REO.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have, or better yet, GIVE US A TRY, you'll be glad you did!!  


Valerie Crane

Principal Broker and President of Profitable Properties, In c


Valerie has been a licensed Realtor specializing in residential investment property since 1986. She has always worked in the pre-foreclosure, foreclosure, and REO arena. In 1991 she was licensed as an appraiser in Florida where she worked for Pardue, Heid, Church, Smith and Waller, the largest appraisal firm in the country. After the 2 year state requirement, she finished the education and licensure to become a State-Certified Appraiser and ultimately formed a company Accurate Appraisals, Inc. Supervising a staff of 3 junior appraisers, she operated this residential appraisal company for 2 years until she was offered a position to work for Norwest Mortgage as their Orlando Senior Staff Appraiser.

During that time Valerie continued to pursue the real estate investment business and began buying and wholesaling properties to central Florida investors. After a year, she left Norwest, obtained her broker’s license and started Profitable Properties, Inc. to capitalize on her ever-growing business. The company focused on Pre and Post foreclosure properties, including REO and then added short-sale listings to its services. Valerie is a skilled sales agent, negotiator, and business manager.
