Before I get started on this article I would be remiss if I did not first recognize those brave and compassionate recovery agents who have gone to Houston to help in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey. I thank you for your efforts and pray for your safe return to your own home soon. I also continue to send prayers to those agents affected by Hurricane Harvey. Now, to my reasons for writing this article.
I read the recent editorial about Santander/Chrysler and I felt the need to respond from my point of view. One of the questions in the article was why Santander/Chrysler chose the C.A.R.S. National Certification Program for ensuring that the recovery agents they hire are professionally trained. I am going to try to answer that question only.
I read your editorial regarding Santander/Chrysler and I would like to take this opportunity to respond to parts of it. I have known Joe Taylor and Stamatis Ferarolis for more years than I can remember and I totally agree with what your editorial said about them so we will leave that where it is.
The two things I want to respond to is contingency and certification and I mean real professional certification.
