Real Pro Systems (RPS) announced today that it has entered into an exclusive joint venture with America’s Home Rescue (AHR), the leading short sale training and certification provider for real estate agents and escrow officers.  Under the terms of the agreement, the Real Estate Masters Guild division of RPS becomes the exclusive sales and marketing channel for the most comprehensive short sale training available. All of AHR’s training products and services will be rebranded, and offered only under the Real Estate Masters Guild brand. RPS made the announcement at the RE/MAX R4 Convention underway in Las Vegas, NV. In addition to its training courses, AHR offerings include monthly services that provide timely updates and materials to keep graduates current with changes in the market.  Unlike some competitors, all coursework is developed by practicing REALTORS working short sales on a daily basis. Real Estate Masters Guild (REMG) will maintain AHR’s current offerings and add to them over time.  These include courses and graduate designations for agents listing short sales (Certified Default Resolution Specialist, or CDRS), agents representing buyer of short sales (Certified Short Sale Buyer Representative, or CSSBR), and escrow officers responsible for closing short sale transactions, (Certified Default Resolution Closing Specialist, or CDRCS). “There is simply no one in the country who knows more about how to successfully close short sale transactions than America’s Home Rescue, and especially the founders, Stacy and Michael Spickes,” said Caine O’Brien, general manager of Real Pro Systems.  “Every time we have heard them present, agents consistently comment that they learned more from the Spickes in one hour than in full certification courses offered by others.  And when we reviewed their online training programs, the differential advantage of their training was obvious.” “We’re delighted to be joining forces with Real Pro Systems,” said Michael Spickes, cofounder of America’s Home Rescue.  “We’ve been big supporters of their Real Estate Masters Guild from the beginning, and think our offerings are a perfect fit with their overall program.  With this transition, our team can focus on providing the best training programs available while Real Pro Systems takes care of all sales, marketing and administrative responsibilities.” While Real Estate Masters Guild (REMG) is a division of Real Pro Systems, a leading technology provider for real estate, it provides training, coaching and conferences for real estate agents of all skill levels, regardless of their choice of technology platform.  In addition to now offering short sale training and certification, REMG offers Buyer Mastery University training for agents working with buyers, two national Mastery Workshops each year, agent and team coaching, and an upcoming Internet Marketing Mastery University course.
