Alex Charfen founder of the Certified Distressed Property Expert organization is rock’n and a rollin with the CDPE course that are all over the United States. All you need to do is to find a location and attend the two day event. If you cannot travel to the course then you have the option of attending it online. But being at the course you will walk away with so much more knowledge and meet some great people who all have the common goal and that is to help our neighbors, friends, family and new friends to know there are solutions and options regarding foreclosure.
I had the pleasure of meeting Alex at the 2009 STAR POWER Conference in Denver this past July and I was very impressed with his dedication, not to mention his wonderful smile. Tee Hee! Anyway, I was happy to hear they moved their headquarters to Austin, Texas recently, which I then saw on the tour schedule Austin will be holding a CDPE class and I am going.
