In an effort to improve the wait times for the short sale approval process, Bank of America has named a new executive in charge of short sales and REOs. From the press release: CALABASAS, Calif. – Matt Vernon, a 15-year veteran of the financial industry, has been named short sale and real estate owned (REO) executive for Bank of America Home Loans, moving to the loan servicing division from roles in the bank’s residential mortgage origination business.
