AUSTIN, TEXAS, May 17, 2010 – The Distressed Property Institute (now Charfen Institute) has been added to Austin Business Journal’s prestigious list of the “Best Places to Work in Central Texas,” a distinction determined by how well a company can create a highly engaged workforce.
Every year the Austin Business Journal accepts applications for this award from hundreds of businesses in Central Texas. The decision of who is chosen is based on surveys filled out by each company’s employees, who are asked things like how well their management listens to their ideas, whether they feel comfortable in their work environment, and how effectively the company reaches goals.
“This means a great deal to me personally,” Alex Charfen, CEO of the Institute, said. “When my wife Cadey and I founded this company, it was our goal to provide people with a safe and productive place to work that offered limitless opportunity. This recognition reconfirms that we’re accomplishing what we set out to do.”
The Distressed Property Institute offers the Certified Distressed Property Expert designation to real estate agents, training them how to effectively assess and pursue homeowners’ foreclosure alternatives, such as short sales and deeds-in-lieu. The company also owns STAR POWER Systems, the number-one brand in real estate education.
The Institute is still rapidly growing due to the CDPE and STAR POWER organizations’ unprecedented market success, which translates into more top quality job opportunities for Central Texans.
