After years of doing short sales (even when they weren't popular), I realized that I wanted something more for my customers. I just recently acquired the designation of CDPE. This designation didn't necessarily teach me anything ABOUT short sales, but it sure shed some light on some of the processing errors that may hold the banks up.
The best bit of learning was about BPOs and REOs. I have moved my focus to Distressed properties, because now that I am more familiar with the process in general; I have already seen my contracts closing faster; more efficiently; and without the added stress of "holding things together".
Now that I hold this designation I am eager to meet others who have done this training. I would like to mind map; brain storm; mastermind; whatever you want to call it; with other Realtor professionals and those in the lending industry as new issues are popping up to make these contracts as bullet proof as we can make them.
As always, I am interested in your referrals and your comments! I hope you all have a wonderful week, and a successful month!
