Freddie Mac has hired a company to help train listing brokers and other vendors on the policies and procedures employed by its HomeSteps "real estate owned" (REO) sales unit.

REO Training Solutions Inc. will provide nationwide training to new HomeSteps listing brokers and vendors through weekly webinars starting later this year, Freddie Mac said.

REO Training Solutions was founded by Aurora Pucciarello, whose Dallas-based Specialized Realty Group has specialized in Texas foreclosure sales since 2002.

Listing brokers who wish to represent Freddie Mac properties can pre-register with the HomeSteps HomeBase Membership Network.

Listing brokers who wish to represent Fannie Mae REO properties can contact one of 16 asset management providers that work with the company’s HomePath sales unit, or apply to Fannie Mae to be a direct listing broker.
