Rainmaker Upgrade and Introduction

Services for Real Estate Pros with CRE Credit Services

I have been approached by several active rain members lately that thought I should really become more active on the site as they felt my contribution could add to what was missing on here.... Credit Education.  So I signed up for a Rainmaker account and I am ready to go.  This is pretty new for me as I am just learning more about Active Rain and blogging!

Credit Education: The fact is credit is extremely complex, whether it be credit reporting or credit scoring, and almost every financial or credit professional I meet can't even answer simple questions about credit correctly.  There is so much misinformation out there even on trusted websites about how credit works and our mission has been to increase financial literacy and credit education around the country.  I have recently been writing a lot and I have actually found myself to enjoy it.  My goal is to start blogging about common or even uncommon credit questions that many consumers have or any active rain users have.  Please comment or reach out to me if there are any questions relating to credit that you might have and I can write create a blog post answering your questions.  I have conducted seminars all around the country for mortgage and real estate companies and last year I consulted with the CFPB, the FTC, the House Financial Services Committee, and many important congressional staffers in Washington D.C. both on behalf of my company CRE Credit Services and NACSO (National Association of Credit Services Organizations). 


About Me: I am married to an amazing woman and have two dogs. I live in Allen, TX which you may have heard is the home of the the country's most expensive high school football stadium.  Yes, it is outrageous!  Experian also has a location here in Allen, TX which is how I met my business partner James Charlet.  James Charlet is a former member of Experian's legal and compliance department (CASS) where he would actually be deposed as Experian to represent them in federal court.  In his department they also set policies and procedures for dealing with credit reporting, credit repair companies, consumers, escalations, and the data furnishers who report to consumer's credit reports.  James Charlet is known as the top credit expert in the country and together with our combined experience we have created the fastest growing and most respected credit repair company in the nation.  We have over 60 employees and an over 10,000 sq foot secure facility in the former FBI office in Plano, TX.  We work with many fortune 500 companies, mortgage companies, real estate companies, and many non profit organizations. 

If you have any questions or information you would like me to blog about please leave a comment or reach out.  Let the blogging begin.....

Simon: So glad to see an ActiveRainer who has this kind of background---we need all the help we can get! Good luck with your blogging; I will take a look at what you have written so far. There are so many questions people have right now about credit that your blog should be tremendously helpful!
