Amy Brooks, a leading broker associate with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Parker, has earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation.  Brooks recently completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance and short sales, enabling her to offer special services and advice to prospective clients who may be facing potential foreclosure.

Short sales allow the cash-strapped seller to repay the mortgage at the price the home sells for, even though it is lower than what is owed on the property.  This can save many homeowners from foreclosure and even bankruptcy.  More and more lenders are willing to consider short sales because they are much less costly than foreclosures.

“The CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with sellers and lenders on complicated short sales,” said Brooks.  “It is rewarding to be able to help sellers save their homes from foreclosure.”

Brooks is a member of the South Metro Denver Realtor Association and was a certified real estate appraiser in the state of California.  She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Irvine.  Brooks is focused on providing superior customer service while keeping her clients informed throughout the real estate transaction.
