Since the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association rolled out the Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional (CRMP) designation earlier this year, 13 people have achieved the certification.
The latest is Karen Keating, the President and Owner of Tradition Title Agency, the only person affiliated with a title company to earn the designation according to a company statement.
“Tradition Title Agency’s dedicated staff knowledgeably explains the reverse mortgage process to help mortgage professionals complete more closings with fewer headaches,” Ms. Keating said. “I take great pleasure in knowing that I am helping seniors especially to enjoy some peace of mind as they control their own destinies.”
Founded in 2007, Tradition provides title services for reverse mortgages, commercial and residential mortgages. Keating previously started AKT, Inc., before selling it to First American Title Insurance Co.
“We were intent on creating a Certification that is rigid enough to demand the respect of professionals and government officials and the confidence of America’s seniors,” says Peter Bell, NRMLA President. “On behalf of the entire membership, we congratulate our designees, all of whom have demonstrated a deep understanding of the product and an eagerness to continually pursue additional education. Earning the CRMP will distinguish them as having demonstrated superior knowledge and competency in the area of reverse mortgages and dedication to upholding the highest ethical and professional standards.”
