MONICA POLAND EARNS PRESTIGIOUS DESIGNATION TO HELP HOMEOWNERS IN DANGER OF FORECLOSURE
MONICA POLAND of RE/MAX Excellence 16252 Prince Drive South Holland, IL 60473 has earned the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation, having completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance and short sales. This is invaluable expertise to offer at a time when the area is ravaged by "distressed" homes in the foreclosure process.
Short sales allow the cash-strapped seller to repay the mortgage at the price that the home sells for, even though it is lower than what is owed on the property. With plummeting property values, this can save many people from foreclosure and even bankruptcy. More and more lenders are willing to consider short sales because they are much less costly than foreclosures.
In the Illinois area, there are 1,000's of homes are in danger of foreclosing. It is happening in all price ranges. Local experts say that even high-priced homes are not immune.
"This CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with sellers and lenders on complicated short sales," said REALTOR LAST NAME. "It is so rewarding to be able to help sellers save their homes from foreclosure."
Alex Charfen, founder of the Distressed Property Institute in Boca Raton, Fla., said that Realtors® such as Monica Poland with the CDPE designation have valuable training in short sales that can offer the homeowner much better alternatives to foreclosure, which virtually destroys the credit rating. These experts also may better understand market conditions and can help sellers through the emotional experience, he said.
The Distressed Property Institute opened in January 2008 and provides training on-site and online. The CDPE is the premier designation for Realtors helping homeowners in distress and handling short sales.
"Our goal is to educate as many people as possible so we can help as many homeowners as possible," Charfen said.
Monica is amazing! She's the perfect mix of professional and personable. Buying a home for the first time is a stressful experience, but Monica helped me to transition smoothly. She's incredibly knowledgeable and patient, and she gave me great advice on how to get the most out of my new home. She always had my best interests in mind. I never had to worry about anything; with Monica on my side, I knew that I would get the best service possible. I've recommended her to everyone I know.

After the deal to sell our condo fell through we were in a bad situation. We had a purchase contract on a home and a significant sum of money tied up and absolutely no prospective buyers for our unit. It was at this point when we called David & Monica. They explained their services, gave us a list of task to complete and asked us to call them if we decided to use them. Needless to say, our decision to utilize their services and expertise was made before they left our home. After only two showings we received two contracts and the one we ultimately accepted was more than 97% of our asking price. Our deal closed on both properties the week of April 14, 2008 . We are still moved and stand in awe of Poland Properties Dream Team's level of professionalism and dedication to selling our home; David & Monica was always available and willing to assist us. As the airport manager of the world's busiest airport I could use 400 people like David & Monica Poland.
