May 6, 2008

Columbia, SC – May 5, 2008 — Bill Oliver, broker/owner of Crescent Moon Mortgage, has passed the Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist (CMPS) qualifying exams for the second year in a row. CMPS designees can offer clients strategies that encompass financial market, interest rate, cash flow, debt and real estate investment analysis.
“I’m excited to focus on helping my mortgage clients build and protect wealth by better managing their home equity and personal cash flow,” said Oliver.
The CMPS Institute’s goal of integrating financial planning concepts with the mortgage process is especially relevant in today’s mortgage market. Frustration with the lack of ethics and financial knowledge exhibited by some lenders fueled leaders in the mortgage and financial planning industries to form the institute in an effort to raise professional standards among mortgage professionals.
“Homebuyers want a mortgage lender who will weigh mortgages with their overall financial interests,” said Oliver, who completed an extensive training and examination process to gain the CMPS certification.

“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,” said Gibran Nicholas, Chairman of the CMPS Institute.
