Crye-Leike Congratulates Agent Rachael Henderson

Chattanooga, Tennessee – Crye-Leike Chattanooga Realtor Rachael Henderson knows the importance of keeping her knowledge of the housing market current and up-date, so she takes great pride in continuing her real estate education to better serve her clients. She recently decided to earn another professional real estate designation as a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) to help people who are falling behind on their mortgage payments.


“I make it a priority in my business to be always learning,” said Rachael. “The Certified Distressed Property Expert designation gives me the tools to proactively help homeowners facing financial difficulties. I love selling homes, but saving them is rewarding beyond compare.”


Real Estate professionals with the CDPE designation have a specific understanding of the complex issues and hardships homeowners are facing in today’s market. Realtors who have earned the CDPE designation have completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance and short sales. Buyers and sellers working with a CDPE Realtor can be ensured they are working with a professional equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to help homeowners find the best solution for their situation.


“The CDPE designation has given me the proper training I need to work with sellers and lenders on handling the complexities of short sales and negotiating with major banks to help financially strapped homeowners regain peace of mind and a sense of stability for the future,” said Rachael. “The knowledge I’ve gained from earning this designation will help me to better assist my clients with avoiding foreclosures and keeping their dream of homeownership alive.”


Crye-Leike Agent Rachael Henderson is a licensed Realtor in Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama who works with buyers and sellers based out of the company’s Downtown Chattanooga office. She assists clients in and around Hamilton, Marion and Sequatchie counties in Tennessee, Catoosa, Dade and Walker counties in Georgia and Jackson and Dekalb counties in Alabama. Rachael specializes in all types of residential real estate sales focusing on first-time homebuyers, relocation, condos, foreclosures, and investment properties.


Rachael places emphasis on continuing education in order to best serve her customers, so the CDPE is one of many real estate designations she’s worked hard to earn. She also completed training and earned her real estate certifications as an e-PRO internet marketing specialist, as an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), as a Certified Short Sales Specialist and as an Accredited Home Staging Specialist.


“In the tough economic times, we are seeing more and more homes in danger of falling into foreclosure which can be very financially and emotionally devastating for the homeowner,” said Rachael. “Often times distressed homeowners facing foreclosure proceed without guidance of any kind, but a homeowner in distress should speak with a well-informed, licensed real estate professional to discover their best options. The most important fact for financially distressed homeowners to keep in mind: the sooner help is sought, the better.”


Rachael lives in Wildwood, Georgia and she’s been a licensed Realtor for seven years. She is a member of the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors, the Georgia Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.
