Certified Default Resolution Specialist
The Certified Default Resolution Specialist Designation (CDRS) is verification that a REALTOR® has taken the initiative to become an educated and prepared advocate on the behalf of a homeowner in distress. Earned by completing a comprehensive curriculum via America's Home Rescue, real estate agents with the CDRS designation are equipped with the expertise to help distressed property owners avoid foreclosure.
As a CDRS designated REALTOR®, I am committed to helping people who are facing foreclosure by finding the right solution for their individual needs and seeing the issue resolved. A portion of my CDRS designation course work involved short sales. Previously, short sales were a rarely accepted alternative by lenders, but in today's world they are increasingly becoming a viable option. Although more common in recent years, lender's still want the right deal with the right paperwork, and most real estate agents without the CDRS designation do not know the specifics. The CDRS course has taught me how to submit the proper documents to a variety of lenders as well as negotiation skills, allowing for quick resolve to a short sale. The education of a CDRS designated agent is continual, as CDRSs from across the county provide information to America's Home Rescue for a continual flow of new information to share with other CDRS designated agents.
