I've been a CDPE since last August and I can't tell you how much the training for this designation has helped me and many, many local homeowners!! You'll never understand how much relief you can provide for a homeowner in jeapordy of foreclosure until you see the look on their face after the closing!
Last night I was able to get an approval on a short sale I've been working on since March. Thank goodness the other agent was also a CDPE! It was a very difficult transaction and the other agent did everything necessary to hold up their end of the sale while I worked to get the necessary approvals to close.
Thanks to Alex and Cady Charfen and the Distressed Property Institute thousands of homeowners are being helped through the difficult short sale process. I have all the other designations...right now the CDPE is THE most important one!!
