I have received my short sale Certificate from Five Star
I am now listed on the REORedBookcom.
The Redbook was passed out this year at the Five Star conference to all the attending asset managers.
Below is from the Five Star website:
"We are looking for the best. The lender and servicing communities are calling for highly qualified, performing, experienced REO agents. And we're answering that call. All members of the FORCE must qualify through fulfilling the following:

- I am wondering how many REO PRO Realtors on here have this designation and are listed on REORedBook.com have you found it to lead to any new business?
