Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
Matt Tarka, a mortgage broker with Talent Financial Company, has completed all continuing education requirements and passed the qualifying exams to earn the Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist (CMPS®) designation for the third year in a row. The CMPS designation is granted by the CMPS Institute. The CMPS Institute is a training and certifying organization created to help mortgage professionals integrate financial planning concepts into the mortgage process. CMPS designees can offer clients strategies that encompass mortgages, debt, home equity and real estate investment.
"My focus is to help my mortgage clients build and protect wealth by better managing their home equity and personal cash flow," says Matt Tarka, Talent Financial. Currently Matt Tarka is only one of three mortgage professionals that have completed the requirements in Northern Colorado.
Many homeowners have become frustrated and confused with the myriad choices in today's mortgage market and the lack of both ethics and financial knowledge among many mortgage providers. The CMPS Institute is a joint effort by leaders in the mortgage and financial planning industries to raise professional standards among mortgage professionals and integrate sound financial planning advice into the mortgage process.
Life expectancy is higher than ever before, health costs are skyrocketing, pensions are shrinking, social security is not secure, and corporate America has gone through one bankruptcy after another. These signs point to the fact that home owners and buyers need expert advice on how to manage their mortgage, cash flow and home equity.
This trend toward expert mortgage advice is growing in popularity. "A mortgage professional who dedicates the time and effort to learn about these financial concepts is much more qualified, committed and equipped to serve the complex needs of today's home owner and buyer," says Gibran Nicholas, Chairman of the CMPS Institute.
The CMPS curriculum incorporates five essential skill sets including:
- Financial market and interest rate analysis
- Cash flow analysis
- Debt analysis
- Real estate equity management
- Real estate investment analysis
