The Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) designation was created by Alex Chafen. Due to the severe housing crisis the curriculum was developed to educated Realtors on complex issues in today’s turbulent real estate industry. Earning the CDPE designation indicates an indepth knowledge of foreclosure avoidance options available to homeowners. CDPEs can provide short sale solutions for homeowners facing market hardships. Through comprehensive continous training and real time experience, CDPEs are equiped with the skills to help homeowners find the best solutions for their unique situations and avoid foreclosure through the efficient execution of a short sale.
