MARZENA MELBY EARNS Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) Designation To Help Homeowners In Danger Of Foreclosure. CDPE Designation is Recognized Nationally.

MARZENA MELBY of COUNSELOR REALTY, INC, 7250 France Ave S, Ste. 300, Minneapolis, MN 55435 has earned the highly regarded in real estate community Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation, having completed extensive training in foreclosure and short sales. This invaluable knowledge and training enables Marzena Melby to offer help for homeowners in a financial hardship.

Short sales allow a cash-strapped seller to sell their home for its current market value and payoff the mortgage even though it maybe lees than the current balance. With property values being significantly down, around 20-25%, this can save many people from foreclosure.  Lenders nationwide are willing to negotiate short sales because that makes financial sense.  Acquiring a property, maintaining it and having to resell it at a deep discount is a lot more costly. Twin Cities area has seen a slight drop in foreclosures due to lender, SEVERAL THOUSAND homes are in danger of foreclosing. It is happening in all price ranges.

"I have helped several homeowners in a foreclosure situation to successfully sell their home and move on in their lives. The additional knowledge and resources that come with this designation have enabled me to be more efficient and creative in looking for available options, therefore to help more families" said Melby. "Expertise I acquired through this course allows me better understand changing market conditions and help families get through this emotionally charged difficult process."


The Distressed Property Institute provides extensive training and resources for real estate professionals nationwide through live and online training.

Alex Chafren, the Institute founder said: "Certified Distressed Property Experts fully understand that saving a home can save a life, which can save a family, which can save a future." They are helping America get through the crisis one family at a time.
