Yesterday, we had a wonderful group of real estate agents attend our continuing education course, Foreclosure and the Economy.
During the class, we warned real estate agents not to negotiate with lenders directly unless they comply with the rules for Mortgage Assistance Relief Services and Distressed Property Consultant Contracts.
Here are some helpful links to comply:
