Randy Morrow, Certified Real Estate Divorce Specialist, P. 2

Ron and Robert engage in a lively discussion with Randy Morrow, Certified Real Estate Divorce Specialist (CREDS), about why you’re better off hiring a specialist to help you sell your home during a divorce. They address common questions like: What is the distinction between a CREDS and your average realtor? How is a CREDS qualified to help couples going through a divorce? How does a CREDS protect your assets? Why might a CREDS choose not to help you sell your property?

One of the things that distinguishes Randy from other realtors is that he does not represent one spouse or the other. He represents the divorcing couple, he offers complete transparency, and he has years of experience selling real estate and helping people in the middle of divorce. He knows how to help couples cope with their emotional agendas and he knows when to set boundaries. Listen to this week’s podcast and learn how you can protect your assets and your interests during divorce.

Honest, Blunt & Brilliant: The Problem with Court

This is the fourth and final installment of Honest, Blunt, & Brilliant: Interviews with Attorney Leslie Ellen Shear. This week she talks about some of the problems with California’s family law courts.

“Family courts have been the stepchild of the judicial system all over the world for all of history. They don’t receive the percentage of trial court funding proportionate to the number cases, complexity of cases, importance of cases to individuals involved or the importance of the wellbeing of families and children to the society as a whole. The caseload and the budgets do not compute.”
