"I have been a CDPE member for over one year now, and I must say that this was the best BUSINESS decision I have ever made. To have the ability and knowledge required to assist homeowners in distress in "Today's Market" is not only REWARDING but PRICELESS!"

"After 2 weeks of marketing myself as a CDPE, I was flooded with calls from distressed homeowners. In my first two weeks, I got two new short sale listing, and my homeowners were so happy that I was able to educate them about the process. This course has really helped to expand my business, and I look forward to its continued success."

"This training was fabulous, and it gave me the confidence to work with short sales. I used to avoid short sales and refer them to other agents in my office who had more experience than me. I have to say that fear is not a way to live!!! After completing this 2-day course, I was anxious to get started helping people avoid foreclosure. I submitted my first offer to the bank, and I am so glad that I had all of the knowledge in how to submit a complete short sale package. The offer has been assigned to a negotiator, and I'm awaiting the BPO. Before this class, I would not have been open to working short sales, but now I want to help as many people as I can. Thank you to my wonderful broker owner who brought Alex in to our brokerage for the 2-day class!!!"

"I have had the pleasure of closing a short sale with 6 lien holders, thanks to the training of CDPE, me and my team were able to get all lien holder's approvals and closed the deal for our buyer. This was not a easy transaction, I had the lender's tell me to move on and forget about this file. We stayed focus and applied the fundamentals of CDPE."

"Before starting this class I thought that I knew a lot about short sales. I've learned so much from this course. My knowledge has grown by leaps and bounds in the last 3 days. This was an awesome course! If someone is going to do short sales to help people they need this course."

CDPE Member Profile
"I have been in real estate for 32 years. This was the best presented and informative school (seminar) I have ever attended. The support material that we got and the additional material and support we will be receiving is fantastic. I feel this course is a must for all agents. Knowing you have a chance to help homeowners that think there are no other options other than foreclosure is a life changing experience for everyone involved."

CDPE Member Profile
"This is the most informative seminar I've ever attended after 30 years in the business and tons of events. Alex is dynamic, enthusiastic and a great teacher. He kept everyone engaged and you didn't want to miss a minute. I surveyed the room, all eyes and ears were on him every minute!! What a wonderful way for Alex to share his experience and have this Institute to educate agents across the country and to be able to help families in disaster! Go Alex!"

CDPE Member Profile
"Prior to completing this course, I too was one of the many Realtors (and Loan Officers) who didn't have answers for people who find themselves in this difficult situation. I am actually excited for the next opportunity as I am now confident in my ability to make a difference for them. And what Alex said is true - once you start looking for these opportunities, they're everywhere! "

CDPE Member Profile
"The numerous endorsements the CDPE course has received not only by its 6,000 members (and still growing) but also from well established and respected corporations such as RE/MAX International, Star Power Systems, Corcoran Coaching Systems, Free Enterprise, RedX, Keller Williams, and the Florida Association of Realtors (to name a few) should speaks for itself. I highly recommend the CDPE course to everyone involved in successfully closing a real estate transaction, and I am tremendously honored to be one of its members!"

"Excellent and interesting, dynamic, one of the best instructors ever. Exceeded all expectations. Cannot stress enough how great an impact you just made. Previously I have placed clients into the hands of other agents because I felt the clients did not have the luxury of time for me to fail in a short sale effort. Even then, I felt I did not help as I could have. Now I can."

CDPE Member Profile
"Thank you very much for the time and effort that you and your team extended to make the past three days so comprehensive. You redefined the concept of over-delivering and exceeding expectations. I look forward to succeeding in this emerging market. Any success that I may experience will be directly traceable to the knowledge and perspective that were presented in the CDPE seminar."

"You are awesome - I learned so much and can't wait to get home and start working on short sales. Well worth the money. I really tried not to spend more money, but knew this was where the "cutting edge" of my business is. I cannot tell you how much I learned from your seminar in Orlando. I went because I knew so very little about distressed properties and came away with a wealth of knowledge and understanding. Not only do I feel confident that I can do a short sale, but that I will do the best job that can be done for my client. Helping people is an awesome and rewarding experience, but to know you have the tools and knowledge to confidently walk through their dark time with them is most fulfilling. The tools you gave us will make it as easy as possible to be an effective agent in this market. Most of all, thank you for being who you are! It rang clear that you were there to help us to help others. You have a passion and drive that was an encouragement to all who attended and I appreciated your openness and yes...even your humor...which kept us alert and attentive. I didn't want to miss a word you said and came home to Pennsylvania with the commitment to read the manual word-for-word in the next week to reinstate all that I couldn't possibly retain in three days. I realize you gave up your personal time to meet with us in the evening, which was most beneficial. Thank you for that. After a long day of teaching, you were willing to come back and be with us. That says a lot! Also, the fact that you follow up on all the things you said you would is amazing. I was sure you would, however, it is not always done. I can hardly keep up with all you are providing these days after the seminar is over. Thank you for all of that. The roster is probably the greatest thing. I met people I would love to keep in touch with. So, I just wanted to thank you for everything and I will keep you posted as to my successes as a CDPE."

CDPE Member Profile
"I have done Short Sale's for many years, this program taught me the system of preparing, talking, working the file. As with any systems success comes with a reliable method of tracking and preparing the packet. Your CD provided forms and letters that made the process easier. Also the knowledge is priceless, I now can respond to the banks, agents, and clients the correct answers that will lead to success."
