Anyone who rents in the Monterey area can appreciate the cost of renting and with that comes high deposits. Its really important to know what you are getting into when you sign a lease. I cant say enough about Mr. Daunt. He helped me on a residential lease that went wrong. He knows the laws and was able to guide me in the right direction. I really enjoyed his approach to my problems and of course his great guidance that worked extremely well for me.

Philip J. Daunt has long been my first choice for legal advice and legal representation for both my clients and me personally. I have been a licensed real estate broker since 1990. I owned two Prudential Realty Franchises until I sold them in 2006. I currently am an associate broker with Coldwell Banker.
Philip has the knowledge and the demeanor to assist our clients with the professionalism that we would expect when referring our clients who need good council and an honest assessment of their situation. Mr. Daunt has given me the same great service for my real estate legal needs in several instances.
Philip Daunt has a stellar reputation here on the Monterey Peninsula as a real estate lawyer and as a short sale negotiator with his company known as Strategic Loan Services, LLC. His addition to the short sale process as a licensed attorney allows the proper legal advice to be given to our clients when they ask those questions that require an attorney to answer. Philip stays current with the law and he gives the client added confidence when they are assisting how to proceed with their financial decision regarding their real estate. SLS, LLC has done over sixty successful short sales for my clients in the past six years. I have always been confident that the representation would be excellent. My clients enjoy the initial interviews and the short sale approval letter reviews. Philip conducts those interviews personally and requires that the clients always go through the process. They have a full understanding of their standing when those reviews are completed.
Philip approaches his litigation with a solution as his motivation. I have been witness in my own legal questions that Philip has handled for me. His dialog sets the tone for a successful mediation. The opposition is minimized because his approach is solution based. Philip Daunt has earned our praise. His billing practices are accurate and fair. He is a pleasure to work with.

Finally an honest attorney that will actually tell you when have a good case, when a case does or doesn't make business sense, and whether you should pull the trigger on litigation or not. Philip Daunt understands that in many cases only the attorneys benefit and he finds ways to work out a favorable resolution without wasting your time and money. I've worked with more than my share of attorneys over the years, from family law to hot shot litigators. After working with Philip on a number of issues over the past several years, I can say Philip is the first person I call now for any legal matter whatsoever.

We recently sold our home in a short sale. Phillip Daunt was our attorney. He and his staff did an excellent job dealing with a very stubborn lender. Going thru a short sale is very stressful, and Strategic Loan Solutions worked very hard for us. It was money well spent. It took the team of SLS and our realtor Karen Calley all working together to make this happen. Great job!!!!

I cannot say enough positive things about Philip Daunt. In one short consultation,
Philip outlined for me what I needed to consider to make the best decision possible.
He succinctly presented to me the 9 possible paths I could take in the matter and he then answered all my questions. I consider myself very lucky to have found Mr. Daunt as he brought clarity to a very stressful situation. In one consultation, he helped me make the best decision possible even though the decision involved my not needing any additional legal services from him. If I had decided to proceed with a short sale, it would have been much less stressful to know that Mr. Daunt was working for me to uphold my interests. Not only is Mr. Daunt extremely knowledgeable in real estate matters – it is clear that he is an attorney that really cares about his clients.

Mr. Daunt and his group, Strategic Home Solutions, helped us to successfully complete a short sale on our home this past year. We had tried twice, unsuccessfully, to get a loan modification. It was extremely stressful and discouraging. Mr. Daunt spelled out the process clearly and did all of the work. We were kept informed throughout the process and we no longer had to try to communicate with the bank ourselves. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is going through this.

I highly recommend Philip and his team to handle the short sale of your property. They handled a very complex loan situation that dealt with coordination between the 1st and 2nd lenders. They kept me informed throughout the entire process, ensured all necessary documents were submitted and saw the deal through a highly satisfactory completion.
Read his mission statement and you will find that they care deeply about the customer's needs and not having the client be just another file.

Philip is very clear in his explanation of the applicable law and the process in a short sale, potential bankruptcy and foreclosure. He and his staff make the entire process as easy as possible. I have recommended him to many clients and all of them have been equally satisfied.

I am a realtor that has helped clients with dozens of short sales. In every case I would ask Mr. Daunt to talk with my clients and advise them throughout the short sale process. Mr. Daunt was consistently honest, knowledgeable and ethical in every situation. He and his staff consistently made my clients feel comfortable throughout a process that is usually very stressful. As long as there are short sales to negotiate, I will always want Mr. Daunt in my corner.
In regards to short sale law, Mr. Daunt has advised many of my clients in all areas of real estate and probate law. I can't recommend him and his staff strongly enough.

Mr. Daunt and his company, Strategic Loan Solutions, took us from the first steps to the final closing on the short sale of our home. This is a difficult, involved process that we never could have navigated on our own. Mr. Duant's excellent staff was incredibly prompt, efficient, kind and compassionate during this entire procedure. We have only the highest regards for Mr. Duant and his amazing staff!!!
