If you approach divorce listings like a traditional listing, you can step into a field of landmines. Divorce transactions are driven by emotions. As a CDRE, I am trained to deal with high conflict divorces, personality disorders, restraining orders, and behaviors that can sabotage the sale. My focus is to sell the divorcing couples' home in a timely manner, while maximizing their equity to fund Life 2.0. I am a neutral, unbiased Real Estate Expert, trained to testify in court.

What is a Certified Divorce Real Estate Expert?

A CDRE is an emerging expert in the field of family law who is specifically trained to support the real estate needs in a case.

Guided by experience, training, and the CDRE Code of Ethics, the effectiveness of a CDRE is felt throughout the system:

  • Conflict is mitigated
  • Judicial economy is promoted
  • Lawyers are prepared and informed
  • Clients are represented by a trained neutral

As a CDRE, I offer 3 main services to the family law community and their clients:

1. Education: Real Estate is in constant flux, and the state of the real estate market and trends impact how cases are handled. I will provide you with:

  • Real estate market data and trends
  • Lessons from cases that everyone can learn from
  • Nuances from the real estate / divorce crossover

2. Resources: Every case with real property will need information. As a CDRE, I can be your resource for all things real estate, including:

  • Title documents: legal descriptions, deeds, property profiles
  • Values: sight unseen and full reports, supported by expert testimony
  • Challenges: foreclosures, equity buy-out questions, liens, creative settlement structures

3. Divorce Listings: The listing of a house in a divorce case presents many challenges that CDREs are trained to handle:

  • Mutual agreement on pricing, offers, showings, terms
  • Sale sabotage
  • Court orders and proceeds distribution
