Debbie Morreale/GRI Earns NAR Short Sales and Foreclosure Certification
Buyers and Sellers Benefit from REALTOR® Expertise in Distressed Sales

Daytona Beach, FL, 3/15/2010 — Debbie Morreale with
1st Florida Realty
has earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource
certification. The National Association of REALTORS® offers the SFR
certification to REALTORS® who want to help both buyers and sellers
navigate these complicated transactions, as demand for professional
expertise with distressed sales grows.

recently were either short sales or foreclosures.  For many real estate
professionals, short sales and foreclosures are the new “traditional”

buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.

family that loses its home to foreclosure is one family too many, but
unfortunately, there are situations in which people just cannot afford to keep
their homes, and a foreclosure or a short sale results,” said 2009 NAR
President Charles McMillan, a broker with Coldwell Banker Residential

The certification program includes training on how to qualify sellers for short
sales, negotiate with lenders, protect buyers, and limit risk, and provides
resources to help REALTORS® stay current on national and state-specific
information as the market for these distressed properties evolves. To earn
the SFR certification, REALTORS are required to take one core course
and three Webinars.  For more information about the SFR certification, visit
