Lee Honish had a 20+ year career as a foreclosure asset manager/loss mitigator working for large mortgage lenders. Early in 2007, he knew that agents needed to know what the banks know in order to close short sales in record time. He developed a program that has a 99% close ratio, which is both astonishing and truly making a difference. “It is satisfying to provide useful education to a group of professionals in our nation that desperately need to work together. Real estate professionals just need to put the right strategy to work for them, so they can be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.”
For the past six years Lee Honish has conducted more than 600 seminars, training over 60 thousand agents how to rescue families from the nightmare of foreclosure. “It is not as difficult to work with the banks as people have led you to believe. Banks want to sell these properties, not own them,” says Honish.
In the past 2 years Lee has developed cutting edge marketing and a homeowner advocacy group that has helped both homeowners and real estate agents make sense of the turbulent market.
CDAT’s (Certified Default Advocacy Training) main goal is to bring the truth forward about the real estate market and educate HOMEOWNERS, Realtors, investors, and servicers about everyone’s proper role within a default transaction. CDAT wants to spread the truth so that the people being affected by the housing market have the opportunity to get back on their feet, recover, and start over. The housing market has affected everyone in this market and it’s about time that those who have been hurt the most receive a true advocate in assisting them in one of their most stressful times in their lives.
CDAT Principals are actual practitioners and not gurus. Their real life experiences are what is being taught which is what sets CDAT apart. It is real time training that changes as the market does.
The pledge of the company is to protect and educate homeowners and create advocates who will carry that message through their actions.

“When I first saw Lee speak I thought that this is just another one of those sales pitches where they sell you something and then send you packing while they pocket the cash. I decided to go for it and have been amazed by the level of support and ongoing training via conference calls and focus training events. The conference calls are very effective to keeping Short Sale Genius members up to date with the current trends and strategies in this constantly changing market. The level of support and training provided is unparalleled in this industry!”

“Cost was never a big issue for Suzie and I. This kind of information and support is worth whatever the program is priced at. I have looked a long time for this information. It is worth every penny. Lee Honish has given us the confidence, information and tools to help 14 families complete the sale of their property. We have 7 more in escrow. We totally rely on this system. It works!”

“When I went to the original seminar, I had had reasonable success with short sales, but not a lot of them. The main thing I was interested in was Lee Honish’s’ ‘insider’ information on the negotiating approach. I was amazed at what I learned, but most of all, how accurate he was on everything. I have not lost a single short sale using Lee Honish’s approach, but what really blew me away, was when I sold a gentleman’s home, he kept up his payments, like Lee recommended, did not get a deficiency judgment, and 5 months later, he bought a new home, and his credit score was 740. That was the pivotal moment for me, when I really knew Lee had it over all the competition.”
“After hearing Lee speak I was confident the program would work and I regretted waiting that long to sign up. Since signing up I have received incredibly valuable information and received communication and/or responses through the escalation letters on all of my unanswered files.”
