About is a website created by Thomas McGiveron, Licensed Associate Broker, with the intention of providing homeowners access to information about the foreclosure avoidance strategy known as a short sale.

I knew several years ago that the real estate market was going to significantly change. Of course, much like everyone else, I didn’t know it would be this severe. However, I knew enough to realize that foreclosures, unfortunately, would become much more prevalent in our local Long Island communities.

To answer the call for homeowner needs here on Long Island, I knew that short sales would become a very powerful option (and for many, the only option) for avoiding foreclosure.

First things first, if you, or someone you know, is having financial difficulties and cannot pay the mortgage, the only website I recommend for options for foreclosure avoidance (other than this website) is

With the knowledge that the real estate market was going to shift, I decided to learn all about foreclosures and short sales. I have since become very familiar with people in the industry that are trustworthy, professional and I have teamed with these attorneys and industry leaders to help homeowners avoid foreclosure through short sale strategies.

In the past several years, I have successfully helped homeowners and their families in Deer Park, West Babylon, North Babylon, Yaphank, Babylon, Mastic Beach, Merrick, Islandia, Lindenhurst, Medford, and Patchogue to avoid foreclosure through the process of short sale negotiations.

In my experience, the first step of calling me is the hardest. You don’t know who I am and part of you just wishes that these troubles would just go away. I’m here to tell you, unfortunately, the problems you’re having with your mortgage are not going to go away.

I have also been a Real Estate Owned (REO) Agent (I worked with many banks to sell their foreclosures). A very big part of selling bank owned homes, is you must meet, greet and help the families move out of the home they lost to foreclosure.

When I ask why they didn’t seek help, they almost always say, “I didn’t know what to do.”

Well I’m here to tell you that you have options and one of them is to sell your home for less than what you owe and negotiate with your lender(s) a successful sale, which I will help you with.

I urge you to contact me immediately with any questions you have about avoiding foreclosure.
