It’s a sign of the times!
Most of us grew up thinking that if we planned well and played by the rules, we’d never have to stand by as our financial lives unraveled.
But upheaval on Wall Street, unacceptable rates of unemployment and plummeting real estate values have taken their toll. Since 2007, 7.9 million homeowners have lost their homes to foreclosure.

I read an old forum thread from a REOPro member from back on 1/8/2012 titled, "What is the best REO Certification to have?" and based on what I know about REO Training, I stopped to read. She goes on to ask more specifically, which "training" actually gets people business or a return on the investment.
As expected, many people stood up, and answered her question and for the most part, the respondents were either looking for an answer themselves or just simply said…Continue
