In today’s market, there is a high demand for full-service real estate agents who are qualified to represent hedge funds, servicers, asset management companies and investors just as confidently as they do Mr. and Mrs. Smith next door.

Most traditional agents do not understand that complexities of handling a distress asset, and asset managers don’t want just any agent working on their properties.

They want an REO Certified Agent representing them and their assets. 

An agent who has been specifically trained to handle the special needs an REO property has, not just someone who will check tasks off a list. They seek someone who will increase their sales amount, decrease the time on the market and bring them a higher ROI.

The REO Certification will provide the highest education that real estate agents can learn from a former REO Asset Manager, High Risk Loss Mitigation Manager and consultant to Asset Management Companies, Hedge Funds and Private Investors around the world.

**Special Bonus: Sunday at 11am, Bubba will be inviting some of his Asset Management Friends to come into the class to speak with you privately!!! Don’t miss this opportunity. Ryan Hennessy with LRES has already confirmed, more names will be announced soon!

Deliverables upon class completion: List of BPO & REO Companies to register with, Example REO Resume, Hedge fund Analysis Spreadsheet and much, much more!
