After completion of extensive training in foreclosure avoidance with a particular emphasis on short sales, Frankie Arthur with the Flower Mound/Lewisville office of RE/MAX DFW Associates has earned the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) designation. At a time when millions of homeowners are struggling with the possibility of foreclosure, the skills and education received during this training by real estate professionals such as Mr. Arthur will help benefit area residents as well as the North Texas suburbs and other communities which he serves.
“Understanding the market conditions more than the average agent, these experts can help sellers through the complications of foreclosure avoidance,” said Alex Charfen, co-founder and CEO of the Distressed Property Institute in Boca Raton, Florida. “REALTORS® such as Frankie who hold the CDPE designation have valuable perspective on the market, and training in short sales that can offer homeowners real alternatives to foreclosure. Our institute’s goal is to help a larger group of homeowners by educating as many real estate professionals as possible. Mr. Arthur has demonstrated a commitment to the struggling homeowners and will provide much needed assistance in stabilizing the community.”
“The CDPE designation and the extensive training I have received will prove to be invaluable as I work with homeowners and lenders on complicated short sales,” noted Mr. Arthur. “I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help families through this emotional experience and save their homes from foreclosure.”
