While at Keller Williams, Expert helped manage about 250 agents and served on the Risk Management and Broker Management teams, while being the “go to” person for contract questions, disclosures, and training. In 2010, he was asked to set up and run a short sale division for Keller Williams, and worked on several categories of distressed properties, including properties in bankruptcy, probate, divorce/partition cases, foreclosure, and HOA proceedings/issues. Distressed properties also include properties with deferred maintenance and making sure that the necessary disclosures are delivered. Often, he's determined the reduced market value due to the extent of deferred maintenance and/or damage.
