Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist
In addition to being a licensed REALTOR®, I am a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (CPRES) and registered in the U.S. Probate Resource Directory.
Known as Certified Probate Real Estate Specialists (CPRES), real estate agents with this designation have been trained by the U.S. Probate Services. In order to receive this certification, an agent must pass a test that measures their ability to handle complex probate property sales procedures.
People have heard of the probate and estate settlement process, but wonder what it is and what the probate process entails. To put it simply, probate is the process the probate court uses to make sure the deceased person’s creditors are paid through estate settlement and that anything left goes to the deceased’s beneficiaries.
Unfortunately, the probate and estate settlement process can be anything but simple, depending on the size and nature of the assets to be administered, the number of parties involved in the probate and estate settlement process, how well those parties get along, and many other factors. Complex probate and estate settlements are made all the worse by the fact that the family is in a state of mourning and under a great deal of stress. The last thing most families want to deal with at a time like this is the probate court system.
