NEXT SCHEDULED REO CERTIFICATIONNOVEMBER: ONLINE VIA ZOOM | DETAILS BELOW
WHY REO CERTIFICATION?
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.
“I think if Bubba’s class was the only class I would have taken at Five Star, I think I would have walked away extremely satisfied. His way of teaching makes you remember things. I think that the REO Certification class by far was the best class I have taken regarding how things should be done when it comes to REO Properties. I would highly recommend his course to others.
I have been an REO agent since 2008 and have taken a multitude of different classes. His class was by far the best class I have taken personally with regards to REO. His humor and bigger-than-life personality makes him an AWESOME speaker. I would highly recommend this class. One thing I would say is that this class was supposed to end at 5:00 PM on Saturday night YET NO ONE WANTED TO LEAVE and it went until almost 6:30 PM – just a wealth of knowledge. Just take it! You won’t regret it!!”

The REO Certification is not a self-paced online course. The content is taught in person over the course of either two full days in an on-site environment or three half days on Zoom. Agents must make a full commitment to be an REO Specialist, not just watch a few videos and answer some questions.
Bubba will not only be the instructor of the class, but he will be able to answer questions pertaining to real life scenarios, and provide best practices to the students that a self-paced class will not allow.
