PartnerFirst Releases HAFA Specialist Certification
Jan 21, 2011

PartnerFirst has announced the release of its HAFA Specialist Certification (HSC), which incorporates recent changes to the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program that go into effect Feb. 1, 2011. The HSC course educates real estate agents in the elements of HAFA, which offers help for distressed borrowers seeking to avoid foreclosure. The new changes promise to make HAFA more effective in addressing the national default crisis. Agents seeking to specialize in HAFA short sales will need the up-to-date training HSC provides. HSC is the latest course offered by PartnerFirst, complementing its Pre-foreclosure Specialist Certification (PSC), which is widely regarded as the industry's most comprehensive short sale training program. "Education is extremely important to our mortgage servicer clients," said Mark Comer, chief executive officer of PartnerFirst. "We've developed a nationwide network of agents that are continually learning and adapting to the changing real estate environment. As HAFA continues to evolve, it is important that agents update their knowledge to serve homeowners effectively. Ongoing education is the key to success." PartnerFirst provides a suite of services for homeowners, mortgage servicers and real estate professionals, including an innovative Agent Management Services (AMS) platform which connects trained, certified default specialists with distressed borrowers.
