Dear Ms. Doe,
In a divorce, the home is the most expensive--and often most emotional--piece of the puzzle. Yet the average Realtor has no specific training in divorce. The most complicated aspect of the case has no expert to address it.
In 2017, I set out to change this. I founded The ilumni Institute to turn passionate Realtors into laser-focused experts, agents who could get houses sold even in high-conflict situations.
Together with my faculty of high-level family law attorneys and family law experts, we designed the most comprehensive divorce training program in the real estate industry. We created an extensive vetting process, accepting only the best of the best. We select not only skilled agents. We’re looking for those who share a passion for helping people in their darkest hour, and who subscribe to our code of ethics that incorporates and surpasses that of the National Association of Realtors.
What does that mean for you? It means that if you work with a Certified Divorce Real Estate Expert (CDRE™), you are working with the top 1% of divorce real estate agents. You have an expert who has a community supporting them, and who is not going to be intimidated by conflict or challenges. And it means that we are putting our reputation behind that CDRE and holding them accountable for their performance. This way, attorneys and litigants can rely on our database when they need a real estate expert in their case.
If you have any questions about how a CDRE™ will impact your case, please reach out to me. We stand behind our experts as we positively impact divorcing couples, one sale a time.
