Solving the foreclosure crisis one homeowner at a time

Mission
The CDPE is the most important education a real estate professional can find for success in today’s market.

With a growing nationwide network of tens of thousands of real estate professionals, the CDPE Designation is changing the way industry veterans deal with the changing paradigm of success in the real estate industry. The measurement of success has been amended to include how many families have been saved, how many foreclosures have been avoided, how many neighborhoods have been spared, and in the way real estate professionals are turning the tide of trouble in the real estate industry.

Through comprehensive training and experience, CDPEs have an understanding of the complex issues confronting distressed properties. They are able to survive and thrive in current market conditions while providing solutions for homeowners facing hardships. CDPEs don’t merely assist in buying and selling properties, they serve and help save their clients in need.

Company Overview
Alex and Cadey Charfen founded the Charfen Institute in January 2008. After more than a decade helping distressed homeowners find solutions to their difficult situations, the couple embarked on a mission to help change the current state of the real estate industry. When the market began to shift, they found that they could help many more homeowners, and have a direct impact upon the massive wave of foreclosures across the United States, by training other agents to handle distressed properties. Since its inception, more than 25,000 real estate professionals have earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) Designation, making it the fastest-growing independent designation in real estate industry history.

The Distressed Property Institute continues to set the pace for the real estate industry by leading the next wave in the market – real estate investment. The company will make history again in October 2010 when it launches the first-ever designation specifically addressing the needs of residential real estate investor clients, the Certified Investor Agent Specialist™ (CIAS) Designation.

The CIAS Designation trains real estate agents to find, create, and close with residential real estate investors, providing the necessary tools and strategies to help them make sound investment decisions for their future.
