It is so rewarding to be able to help families save their homes from foreclosure: Martin

EXIT Approved Supplier - Certified Distressed Property ExpertAmy Youngren, Manager of Ancillary Services for EXIT Realty Corp. International recently announced that Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) Designation has joined the elite group of companies in EXIT Realty’s Approved Supplier Program.

Many agents see only challenges in today’s shifting real estate market. The CDPE Designation helps EXIT Realty associates find the opportunities.

Now, more than ever, homeowners need educated real estate agents who understand the complex issues confronting distressed properties. CDPEs have the tools to survive and thrive in current market conditions, while providing solutions for homeowners facing hardships.

In recent press releases, several EXIT Realty agents explain their reasons for obtaining the CDPE designation:

The CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with homeowners and lenders on complicated short sales.  It is so rewarding to be able to help families save their homes from foreclosure.
Robert Martin, EXIT Realty Martin Group, Dayton Beach FL

With the growing number of homeowners in distress in Suffolk County, we felt it imperative that our team know the best options to help people in this situation. We are making it our personal mission to help as many families as possible avoid foreclosure.
Susan Hamblen, EXIT Realty Achieve, Smithtown NY

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.
Debra Martin-Back, EXIT Realty Producers, Gainsville FL

Alex Charfen, founder of the Distressed Property Institute in Boca Raton, FL, said that REALTORS® such as these 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.
