Lender REO Expertise:
Michael Martindale, principal and designated broker of CRA garnered valuable experience with the lender process in distinct homebuilding cycles over his long career. From 1989 to 1991, Michael worked with many lending institutions including Bank One, Citibank, Bank of America, private lenders and the RTC in workouts, trades, restructures, foreclosures and REO marketing. Michael also assisted with ‘Note’ sales used to extricate builders and lenders from situations where a property’s viability was reduced or eliminated.
CRA’s agents are focused on one task, understanding the local market. As a result, they have developed a level of expertise so well acclaimed, they are often called upon by educators and economists to share their comprehensive market perspective.
The sales staff’s collective career experience prior to joining CRA range from project entitlement and acquisitions to land development and home building. Unlike other brokerage firms, CRA is a cooperative sales environment where sales people work as a team and do not compete with one another.
The research department has an extensive array of market information and is continually monitoring sales and comp information to ensure we have the most current and accurate sales data.
