In 2003, Jude Rasmus, president of Rasmus Real Estate Group, started National Foreclosure Services specializing in foreclosures services, which made Atlanta’s foreclosure accessible nationally. In 2004, Rasmus Real Estate Group departed from its affiliation with RE/MAX. In 2007, Rasmus Real Estate Group ended this national business and started back to focus on the REO market in Georgia. Along with the subprime mortgage crisis in the late 2000s and the increasing number of foreclosure properties, Rasmus Real Estate Group expanded from metro Atlanta area to covering over 300 zip codes, 200 cities and 31 counties in Georgia. Its client includes Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Bank of America, SunTrust Banks, Citibank, HSBC and other major banks.


In December, 2009, Rasmus Real Estate Group found Real Property Tax Appeals Group as its subsidiary after Rasmus Real Estate Group’s clients kept asking for help in seeking property tax reassessment on new bank owned homes. Shortly after in January 2010, Real Property Tax Appeals Group was featured in Atlanta Business Chronicle.[5]

Rasmus Real Estate Group still keeps their specialization in REO business. Currently, Rasmus Real Estate has around 400 foreclosure/REO properties on their inventory list, and closes more than 100 homes per months.
