Community Resolution

Real Estate For the New Age

Community Resolution


Lorri Brewer has two resolution plans that are incorporated in her real estate practice.

1. Community Resolution Program
2. Mediated-Dispute Resolution Plan for Individuals

Both plans are very different because one focuses on conflict management and the other focuses on dispute management.

There is a huge difference between conflict and dispute.


What is Conflict?

The word conflict is derived from the Latin conflictus which means a striking together.

The striking together is a clash between groups of people or an individual. The clash is usually on ideas, concepts, methods, or beliefs.

Conflict doesn’t mean a physical confrontation. It can be an emotional clash within an individual or with a group of individuals.

Conflict is simply an incompatibility of an individual’s feelings and thoughts for any particular situation or event.


Is Conflict and Dispute the Same Thing?


To dispute means to clean or clear up a body of ideas. The term dispute is disagreements over such things as: possessions, land, money, contractual agreements, heirlooms, etc.

The root of a dispute is specifically over a set of facts. Unresolved disputes can cause conflicts.

The difference between a dispute and a conflict is that disputes are about the facts and conflicts are about feelings.

The emotional level of a dispute or conflict may be the same. However, the root cause will be different.

Disputes are remedied by respectful structured conversations to purposefully clean up and clarify the facts. It is designed to resolve current conflict or minimize any future conflict.

Sometimes painful emotional conflicts are the absence of poorly resolved disputes. However, resolving disputes based in highly charged conflicts becomes even more challenging.


Resolving Conflicts within a Community

Lorri Brewer has created a system that will help resolve conflicts within a community.

Her program will benefit the homeowner, the neighbors, lending institutions, and the real estate industry.

Each neighborhood consists of the following: a mixture of ethnical blends of  people, single family dwelling homes, rental complexes, playgrounds, schools, and recreational parks.

Regardless of the type of residence you live in, these communities are what we all call our ‘home’. When tragedy, violence, crime, or fire erupts in our family community then our sense of security and peace of mind may become compromised.

We may become conflicted about living within that community and contemplate looking for another place to call home.

Statistically, after a home experiences an act of violence, homicide, or tragedy, it is placed on the market for a substantially lower than market value price.

It is then classified as a stigmatized home and property values of the entire neighbor may suffer.

The financial institution holding the mortgage (depending on the current mortgage amount) may take a substantial loss.

Subsequent sales in the neighborhood may also be drastically diminished due to the sold comparable of the stigmatized home.

Local real estate agents may have a difficult time overcoming a buyer’s concerns making it harder for them to sell the home.

Then the home remains on the market for a longer period of time prolonging the conflict for the owner, the neighbors, the lending institution, and Realtors.

Therefore, the future of the community becomes stigmatized and marked by the event of the violence.

But it DOESN’T have to be this way!


Stigmatized Property: Specialized Listing Program

There are four parts to successfully selling a stigmatized home in any market.

Resolving Disputes for Individuals

A part of Lorri Brewer’s listing program consists a Mediated-Dispute Resolution Plan for individuals that may have to sell a property with multiple owners or heirs.

The mediated-dispute resolution plan was designed to help:

Multiple registered title owners,
Business owners, or
Divorcing couples

This part of the population may need a little extra attention resolving some disputes and minimizing conflicts to complete a sale or finalize a transaction.

It is a structured respectful process. The conversation is between all the conflicted parties to clarify the factual issues, find resolve, and create an acceptable plan to move the process forward.
