Certified Distressed Property Expert, Santa Cruz County

Real Estate Agent with Sereno Group Real Estate

As a former educator, I place a high value on continuing education and have made it my goal to continue seeking advanced training and education in my field. I have just enrolled in the CDPE training in October in San Jose, CA.  This course has been highly rec commended to me by a my Real Estate Business Coach.  CPDE stands for Certified Distressed Property Expert.

I already have quite a bit of experience with working with buyers and sellers on short sales and foreclosures in Santa Cruz County. I am looking forward to this training as I am sure it will deepen my understanding as to the ins and outs of dealing with the banks  and breaking a complicated process down to smaller, simpler steps.  My understanding is that we will also walk away with practical tools that we can apply right away.

To my knowledge, there are only two other CPDE certified agents in Santa Cruz County.  This is a pretty small number considering that there are about 1100 Realtors with the Santa Cruz Board, and the high amount of distressed sales in the area. 

In the end, it will be my clients that benefit most from this training, as I will be that much more prepared to advise them should they find themselves in a "distressed" position with their property.

Who regulates the "CDPE"?  In Oregon the state is really starting to regulate people claiming they can help modifiy or are short sales ecperts.

Great question...i guess i dont have an immediate answer. This will be something I will ask them about durring the training.  I imagine there is a degree of liability that you need to be careful with if advertising yourself as an expert in any field.

My hope is that we will walk away with an accpetable level of expertise!
