Why Credit Repair??

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Credit Restoration Consultants

Prior to going to work for Credit Restoration Consultants I worked with a great group of people at Royal Caribbean International. Last night they had a retirement party for one of the gang. It was great to get together with the group again. Especially post Holiday's. Everyone was relaxed and just happy to be together. One of my friends who I have kept in touch with told me she needed my advise for her sister. She told me her sister was in the appraisal business and was looking to change professions. Imagine my surprise when she told me she was thinking about going into Credit Repair.  I asked her what she knew about the business and she told me honestly, "nothing". While I would love to help my friend, I can't help thinking here we go again. Yes, Credit Repair may seem like the "in" business to be in today, but, it takes years of education and experience to do it correctly!!! While I may not be with my company very long, the Company is going on it's 9th year of business. No company stays in business this long unless they are doing something right. Unfortunately people like my friends sister are making this a business that is constantly in question. This is bit like going to a Chiropractor who takes a week-end course and now calls themselves an Acupuncturist. Sorry, for me I want someone with years of experience and education. I guess my point is, Please, take time to check out any Company claiming to do Credit Repair. Do your due diligence and check them out. You owe it to yourself to be an educated consumer!! I understand every company is a start up at one time or another, but, a start up in the "in" business is scary!! While I told my friend I will be happy to speak with her sister, I will be telling her exactly how I feel. Today Credit Repair...what will she try tomorrow?????

Lori -  good post!  It sounds like the business of Real Estate.  I tell people all the time, that this isn't the business they assume it to be.  You have to be very thick-skinned and be able to distance yourself from the Death, Divorce and Downsizing that we deal in on a day to day basis.   Our required level of education is constantly increasing (thank goodness) and you need to have a good 12 -18 months living expenses squirrelled away before you begin on the journey.

Sometimes people just don't get it  . . .   there are no easy or quick fixes to whatever is lacking  in their lives.  If you want something badly enough you have to be prepared for all it takes to get there.

Lori, I have been looking through your blog to see if I could find anything about how to put my own fraud report on my credit bureau.  Shoot I want to save that money from Lifelock.  I'm hoping it is coming.
