Message from Jody:
"I have dedicated most of my mortgage career working in the divorce market. It is very evident there is a strong disconnect as to how divorce law, tax law and real estate financing all relate during and after the divorce process and how the various pieces truly fit together from a "team perspective." The CDLP program was created in an effort to help put these pieces together and focus on the professional divorce team as a whole and not as individual players.
The acceptance and excitement the CDLP program has ignited throughout the industry has been amazing - we are excited to continue to grow the Divorce Lending Association, the awareness of the CDLP program and strengthen the education in the divorce lending market with the ultimate goal always being to set the divorcing client up for success post divorce.
I look forward to working with you in the near future."
