Greensboro Real Estate Agent Earns Professional Designation to Help Homeowners Facing Foreclosure

Greensboro, NC, December 31, 2011 --( Charlie Beard, Broker/REALTOR of RE/MAX of Greensboro in Greensboro, North Carolina, has earned the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) designation after completing extensive training designed to assist homeowners facing foreclosures and to help home buyers in purchasing a distressed property.

A CDPE has a thorough understanding of complex issues in today’s turbulent real estate industry and knowledge of foreclosure avoidance options available to homeowners. CDPEs can provide solutions, specifically short sales, for homeowners facing market hardships.

Greensboro has seen its fair share of foreclosures and short sales. In a short sale transaction, a lender allows the homeowner to sell their property for less than the mortgage amount, to avoid the foreclosure process.

“In this market, more than ever before, home buyers and sellers appreciate working with a professional real estate agent who is qualified and trained to navigate through the short sale and foreclosure process,” said Lisa Bennett, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX of Greensboro. “By earning this designation, Charlie has once again shown his dedication to his clients and is ready to put his CDPE designation to work and help North Carolina families stay in their homes.”
