Lana Cook Detro Co-Authors Default Industry Leaders Book ‘Foreclosure Tails’ with Debut at No. 1 Best Seller on Amazon for Real Estate Sales and Selling

Published on September 16, 2022

Lana Cook Detro is co-author of Default Industry Leaders’ first edutainment book about foreclosures and the Real Estate Owned (REO) industry.

Default Industry Leaders “Foreclosure Tails” earned the ranking of No. 1 bestseller and No. 1 Hot New Release upon its debut in multiple categories including Real Estate Sales and Selling, Economics Development and Growth, Economics Urban and Regional, and Econometrics.

Default Industry Leaders Authors in order of chapters include Kristen Conti, Lana Cook Detro, Alyson Silverman, Kimberly Brunson, Tammy Seymour, Jennifer Patnode, Louis Fontaine, and Brandy Nelson.

Detro contributed her chapter “Hoarding, Haunting, and Dead Man Walking” to the project, highlighting the side of REO that many don’t know exists.

“Our target audience is very diverse. First, we wanted to give potential buyers, including end-users and investors, some perspective on the process,” said co-author Lana Detro, Principal Broker at Ala Carte Realty, Indianapolis, Indiana.

“Second, would be our asset managers and clients whom we are privileged to serve. We know they have so many choices when selecting agents to sell their properties. We want them to know that by trusting us to help manage and sell their assets, they have chosen the best in the industry. We, as members of Default Industry Leaders, take great pride in the quality and experience of our members. ” she said.

“When Donna Brown and I first started DIL 10  years ago, we had a vision of an organization of Brokers helping other Brokers become the best they can be in an industry that many don’t understand. We had no idea of the talent that would step forward. I am so proud to be a member of such an amazing group of  Realtors.”

The purpose of Default Industry Leaders is to support and encourage other REO brokers, to open the doors to newer agents who may wish to break into the default segment of the market but have been denied access, and to market Default Industry Leaders effectively to potential clients and the buying public.

Detro is joined by co-authors Kristen Conti, Alyson Silverman, Kimberly Brunson, Tammy Seymour, Jennifer Patnode, Louis Fontaine, and Brandy Nelson.

“Foreclosure Tails: A Day in the Life of an REO Broker” is designed to be both educational and entertaining with real stories and adventures from each of the authors.

The entertainment chapters in order of appearance include “Hurry Up and Wait” by Kristen Conti; “Hoarding, Haunting, and Dead Man Walking” by Lana Cook Detro; “Nine Cops Guns Drawn, 8 Chickens A-Laying, 2 Evictions and a Partridge in a Pear Tree” by Alyson Silverman; “How to Win Friends and Influence Foreclosured Home Buyers in Today’s Marketplace” by Kimberly Brunson; “Tails of the Wild” by Tammy Seymour and Jennifer Patnode; “Someone Has to Clean Up the Mess” by Louis Fontaine, and “Challenge Accepted” by Brandy Nelson.

The educational chapters include market updates for each location represented by the authors, client testimonials, and a glossary of default industry real estate terms.

About Lana Detro

Lana Detro is the Principal Broker for Ala Carte Realty in Indianapolis, Indiana, and specializes in REO bank foreclosures throughout Central Indiana. Lana started her real estate career in Austin, Texas where she was introduced to the world of default during the S&L ‘scandals’ of the 1980s. She quickly became one of the top REALTORs in the area by servicing and selling foreclosed properties and assisting HUD and other clients with their REO.

With her family, Lana moved back to Indiana where no one else was specializing in REO, and became the go-to for the banks wanting to sell their non-performing loans. When the big wave hit in late 2006 through 2008 and beyond, Lana was someone the lending institutions called. She studied the market and went to banking conferences, investor forums, REO events, and any other venue where economists, market experts, and “soothsayers” gathered.

 “Our desire is to be cooperative and helpful to all the other Realtors out there who bring us their buyers and may need some guidance with t   the sales process,” Detro said.

 Lana has been involved with the Indianapolis real estate community as one of the founders and President of the Indiana Association of Independent Real Estate Brokers, Chairman of the Downtown Division of MIBOR, Executive Board for Eastside MIBOR, and sitting member of the Professional Standards Committee. Lana is a member of the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, the Indiana Association of Realtors, and the Co-Founder of Default Industry Leaders, a national organization of real estate professionals involved in REO.

Lana has partnered with the Indiana Neighborhood Housing Partnership to teach home ownership to new home buyers. Lana was also nominated for the National HOPE Award for her outstanding work with minority buyers.

“After all these years in real estate, I am still excited every time we find a buyer ’their’ home. I don’t want that thrill to ever stop!”

“As Real Estate Professionals, we are not fortune tellers, but we are experienced agents who have done this for years. We study trends and know where the market is headed, even when others poo-poo us and then are then caught off guard when the inevitable begins to unfold,” said Detro about the current state of the real estate market in Indiana.

“The timing is always a bit different throughout the nation. Some states reflect changes a bit faster than others, but it all moves in cycles. Right now the real estate cycle is on the downswing,” she said.

“We see houses sitting on the market for a much longer time, prices are being reduced, and the multiple offers flood has subsided,” Detro said.

“In other words, there is a hint of returning to a more normal market. As we go through this period, just remember what every Default agent knows, ‘what goes up. must come down.’ Historically, the cycle changes approximately every 10 years.  So, hang on for the ride during this correction because it is coming. Meantime, we will continue to navigate this strange beast together.”

New Balance Future Stars Series Delivers Top Amateur Baseball Talent at the Underclass Elite Event in Frisco, TX

New Balance Future Stars Series Delivers Top Amateur Baseball Talent at the Underclass Elite Event in Frisco, TX

Published on September 22, 2022

The New Balance Future Stars Series Underclass Elite event lived up to its name this past weekend.

The second annual installment of the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series event went off without a hitch at Riders Field, home of the Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, the Frisco RoughRiders.  Two teams comprised of some of the best sophomores and juniors in the country — as well as one freshman — squared off for three games, starting with a doubleheader on Saturday.

That doubleheader was split — the Navy team won, 6-5, in Game 1, while the White team came back to win Game 2, 5-2, setting the stage for a winner-takes-all Game 3 on Sunday, which was won by the Navy team, 8-5.

All three games were broadcast live on YouTube and will be stored on DAZN as part of the agreement with the live and on-demand streaming service that gives sports fans around the world affordable access to sports anytime, anywhere.  It was a good start to the deal — which continues with a live broadcast on DAZN for the upcoming Main Event at Fenway Park — with a ton of talent on display for 27 innings of some of the best baseball we’ve seen all summer long.

Jeremy Booth, CEO and President of the Future Stars Series, said, “Underclass Elite had some of the best deliveries, strike throwing, execution, breaking balls, and feel to hit with consistent contact I’ve seen at this age group maybe ever… It was a group with building blocks to be very good players, all of which have future roles. Roles mean value, and that value translates into winning games. These are winning players.”

A large number of the players in attendance turned in stellar showings — both on Friday night’s workout and during game action over the weekend — that will both further their prospect status and keep them in the loop with upcoming Future Stars Series events, including Vinny Hudson, Cole Lanford and David Stanley, all of whom will be in attendance at the Main Event as the only underclass players on the rosters.

Several others also made their name in Frisco, with some big moments coming from Mason Middleton, RJ Cope, Trey Markham, Ryley Leininger, Markus Kirksey, Braden Regala, Chris Melvin, Conner Barth, Jake Downing, Shea Braaten, Trip Ancheta, Josiah Romeo and Zachary Gingrich to name a few.

Learn to Build an Exceptional Future from 10 Men Already There

Published on September 21, 2022

As the summer draws to an end and the fall season steps in to replace the warm, sun-filled days, it brings to mind a New Year filled with abundant opportunities just around the corner. 2023 is just up ahead. With that comes the prospect of creating new goals while evaluating accomplishments from 2022. 

Mark Stephen Pooler, CEO and Founder of TMSP Agency, an inspirational pioneer among his peers and a trendsetter within the media industry, has spoken to thousands of successful businessmen and entrepreneurs throughout his career – making it difficult to narrow down the selection of those to highlight. 

From the stories and insights below, learn how to build an exceptional future from these remarkably innovative men who share game-changing advice and proven approaches for achieving and maintaining success.

  • Brian Tracy, Chairman and CEO of Brian Tracy International, speaker, and author, learned critical success building methods early on. Those who write their goals down are ten times more likely to achieve them, as it enables a higher level of thinking and leads to more focused actions. Done religiously, can add to the effectiveness of the practice. Brian has also taught millions how to avoid getting stuck in ‘comfort zones’ with the Zero-Based Thinking Question. “Is there something that you are doing today, knowing what you now know, that you would not start up again if you had to do it over?”
  • Kevin Tewis-Allen, Managing Director of Ecoflix, widely known among Gen Z and millennial crowds, multi-platinum award-winning record producer, and BBC Radio 1 producer of the decade advises those seeking success to pursue KNOWING over wondering. Sharing the sad truth that individuals rarely automatically care about things, Kevin recommends doing due diligence and research to tap into what is socially responsible for uncovering what makes people care. In business, seek fanatics – not just fans! In life, have empathy and build a trusted and dedicated team to fall back on. 
  • CEO and Lead Mentor at Total Wealth Academy, LLC, Steve Davis, began developing a career at age 27 with bad credit and no money, yet went on to invest in 4,000+ apartments! A huge advocate of reading, he believes that solutions to any dilemma can be found in books. Invest in education regularly and be willing to grow continuously. While remaining humble and grateful, always set higher goals.
  • Self-made success story, Brandon Ivan Pena, believes anything is attainable through creativity and community. Through his appreciation for human connection and his love of coffee came his brand – 787 Coffee Co. Brandon’s three key pieces of advice are: 1) Mindset is everything – verbalize and believe – the universe delivers! 2) Leave the ego at the door and find a career that evokes an inner passion. 3) Avoid negativity – time is too valuable to waste on something that creates roadblocks. 
  • Steve Lowell is a master coach and award-winning global speaker who, for over 30 years, has been training and mentoring individuals worldwide to deliver high-impact keynote speeches, drive revenue and build wealth through public speaking. Steve’s winning advice is to integrate a deeper form of communication to tap into the imagination, inspiring meaningful action. Strive for excellence and never settle for less than full potential.
  • Dr. Corey Hicks is a speaker, author, Pharmaceutical Professional, healthcare advocate, and motivational speaker with 20+ years of experience. Having inspired thousands worldwide, his key motivator is encouraging others to invest in their gifts and dedicate time and money to the pursuit of achieving goals. Embrace processes designed for development to establish an atmosphere of excellence!
  • Wayne Marlton, Founder of Words into Wealth, is a business development expert and skilled copywriter. Words into Wealth is a leading provider of social selling through LinkedIn Outreach. The service is rated in the top 1% of social selling services on LinkedIn. While difficult to not let ego get in the way, Wayne’s goal is to always be at the bottom of someone else’s class. As a beginner in martial arts, he flinched at every punch. Through perseverance, he eventually became an instructor. It’s the same with business – if surrounded by others on the same level, new ideas and innovation will never surface. 
  • Dario Cucci is a Holistic Life and Business Coach, best-selling author, and NLP coach. Advice for knowing what to do is plentiful, but what about tips for what not to do? Dario suggests never compromising on personal beliefs and values in the quest for abundance in life. Learn to set boundaries and communicate expectations to others to create a high-quality, balanced existence. 
  • Leading hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Vishal Nayak is also an aesthetic and general practitioner with a fascination for clinical hypnotherapy. When asked what the most significant thing was that led him to be successful, Vishal’s answer was, “Do what you love, and money will follow.” He also urges individuals to invest in themselves, be ready to do the essential work needed to bring big dreams to fruition, and never hesitate to ask for help. The biggest mistake is to allow pride and ego to get in the way.
  • Having reached over 10.6 million views, broadcasts in over 100 outlets worldwide, and a ranking of #13 on the ‘Top 75 TV/Radio/Podcasts in the World,’ – Brian Sebastian has hit the big time! Founder and CEO of Movie Reviews and More and one of the top 100 influencers in the world, Brian is a huge proponent of following through – be reliable! He encourages others to pay attention to their instincts, maintain strong follow-up skills and stay in tune with world events. Having a keen sense of one’s surroundings enables a person to quickly adapt, a crucial skill for finding success in today’s age.

With four months to go in 2022, there is still a HUGE opportunity to set goals and develop a plan of action for success. With tips for achieving success and excellence shared above, it is all within reach.
