  • Are you struggling to expand your mortgage business beyond the ‘typical’ channels to more specialized areas? I was too! It took 10 years, but I finally found Jody and the CDLP program and my business will never be the same. I have made more progress in a month working with the Divorce Lending Association than I did during the previous 10 years combined. Jody, the program she has developed, and the team she has put together have me on track to be a great success in this area of expertise. You don’t have to go it alone, contact the great people at Divorce Lending Association and follow their guidance. You’ll be so glad you did. Thank you, Jody!! I’m beyond grateful.

  • I wanted to write to you and say Thank you for all you do. The CDLP™ Business Development Coaching program was a game-changer for me. I have worked with family law attorneys for years but never really had a plan that was easy to execute and track where my business was coming from. You have changed that for me and have been so wonderful along the way. The letters you have written, the marketing the plan of the calls, and what to say and when to say have made this so much easier. I can tell you have spent countless hours coming up with this process and getting it on paper and teaching us what to do. I love coming to work with a plan on how to go after new attorneys and financial planners and how to stay in touch with the new referral sources. I can’t thank you enough.

  • "In the short period of time since I went through my training and certification with The Divorce Lending Association my business and referral network has grown exponentially. The training, support, education and coaching that Jody Bruns and her team provides is second to none. There is no other program like it. Jody and the community are so supportive and helpful, I could not feel any better about my decision. I went through another program prior to this and was not at all positioned or prepared for the service and the questions that I am able to provide as a CDLP. I truly feel that I have a community of like-minded professionals behind me in all aspects of focusing on divorce mortgage planning. If you are trying to figure out how to take your business to the next level and work with professionals that are working with clients as trusted advisors, then I would say do not wait one more minute to get started. Thank you, Jody Bruns and CDLP for providing such a comprehensive and fantastic platform! "

  • "The best thing I did was to attend a live class in preparing for my Certified Divorce Lending Professional designation! There was so much energy being in a room with like-minded professionals and having Jody as the live instructor along with the live conversations and questions around the table, helped me to learn and understand at a deeper level. Jody is a gifted teacher and her passion for what she does really shines in the live classes, and she makes it fun!! I also benefited from making new friends and connections." - Theresa Valinatti

  • "I highly recommend Jody Bruns and the CDLP™ training, certification, and platform. Jody is amazing and knows her stuff! What I was exposed to and learned in the three days together with her in the class was incredible. It far exceeded what I expected. I have been through other training and certification coursework, but nothing compares to Jody’s style of teaching. She is a master of this niche and it's evident on day 1! I highly recommend anyone thinking about being a true advisor in this field to take the in-person certification course! You will be glad you did, and you will be a better advisor for it. I cannot say enough great things about Jody, the CDLP™ certification course, and the platform. It is a game-changer. Everything you need to know Jody will expose you to it. There is no one better than Jody in this niche. Take the course and you will be glad you did! "

  • "I have to say I am pleasantly surprised at all of the support you give your CDLP's. I appreciate that this is not just four letters to put behind my name and then I'm set free to figure out how to use them to my advantage. Everything you do is absolutely appreciated! I'm thankful I finally pulled the trigger and completed the course. SMH! Why did I wait so long!?"

  • I was given the privilege to send my review of the Presentation of “Better Outcomes for Divorcing Homeowner’s” broadcast on August 4th. “I want to thank Michael Foote, a member of Divorce Lending Association, for inviting me to this hidden treasure of knowledge and help for my clients. I have been practicing for 50 years and am now a “Senior Counselor” in Missouri. This presentation was one of the best hours I have ever spent in my career. My clients may not know it, but they will be provided an additional layer of help in obtaining a new future through their divorce with the information from this presentation. Each and every one of my clients will now be able to have the tools they need in their Settlement Agreements and Judgments to achieve their mutual understandings. The legal world needs to know all of the ins and outs of all the subject matters involved in a divorce; financial, mortgages, alimony/maintenance—spousal support, division of assets and debts, and all elements pertaining to their family and children. This presentation will give you that additional direction and information that you may not know or have used. Take this information and include a Certified Divorce Lending Professional in your settlement process to create a better tomorrow for your clients. As the Divorce Lending Association grows, so will our practices. This is something each of you can offer to all of your clients. This is the added value product we usually do not have to offer. Start now and listen carefully to Jody Bruns, Founder and President of Divorce Lending Association and then apply what you hear.”
