Penny McLaughlin earns designation

Penny McLaughlin, broker/owner of Penny’s Team, has earned the prestigious certified distressed property expert (CDPE) designation by completing extensive training in foreclosure avoidance and short sales. The CDPE is the premier designation for experience to offer at a time when the area is ravaged by distressed homes in the foreclosure process.

Short sales allow the cash-stapped seller with a legitimate hardship to repay the mortgage at the price that the home sells for (less closing costs) even though it is lower than what is owed on the property.

For more information about short sales, call McLaughlin at (206) 842-9966 or (360) 697-9966 or go to or
