“It's a sweet deal. I thank God — and I thank RealtyTrac. Your straightforward service is unbelievable. RealtyTrac played a key role in this purchase.”
'Sweet Deals' in South Chicago: Corey Fryer's Story
Cory Fryer’s growing family needed more room.
Fryer and his wife had just moved back to Chicago from Grand Rapids, Mich., and were looking for a more spacious home for their growing family of six.
“While we were looking for our dream home, we were living in one of my aunt’s townhomes,” explained Fryer, who works for the Chicago Transit Authority. “I started searching online with other websites, but something caught my attention about RealtyTrac.”
“I truly would not have my home if it wasn't for RealtyTrac. Your website is awesome. My new home is killer beautiful.”
A Beautiful Foreclosure at a Killer Price
While she was growing up in Birmingham, Ala., Lisa Hanson remembers her mother frequently repeating the following phrase: “The roof over our heads is our security blanket.”
It’s a timeless aphorism that recently helped Hanson, who was seeking a new start in life after a divorce.
“As a single woman, I wanted a gated community where I felt secure,” said Hanson, who was looking for a large home in the Stockton, Calif., area where she could easily run her wholesale business selling women’s hats. She also wanted a newer home with lots of living space to easily accommodate her twin boys and entertain her family and friends.
“I was so thrilled when the deal closed — on my birthday. Thank you for leading us to our ‘forever house,’ as we call it! Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
La Habra Heights, CA
A Foreclosure Bargain for Their “Forever House”
Karen Krynen saw an opportunity.
Nestled at the top of a hill with a long private driveway, the bank-owned property sitting on a huge 40,946 square foot lot was exactly what she was looking for.
Krynen and her general contractor husband, Jeffrey, were searching for a fixer to build their dream home.
“We purchased our home for 35 percent under market prices, and since then, it’s doubled in value. Our dream was right here in our own backyard, and we found it online through RealtyTrac.”

The American Dream at an Affordable Price
Chris and Denise McChesney, from Chino, CA used RealtyTrac to open the door to their American dream. The McChesneys, like the majority of homebuyers across the US, experienced the real estate frenzy of the past few years. House prices were at an all-time high, interest rates were at an all-time low, properties were selling within a day or two on the market, and the selling price was often bid up significantly over asking price.
