Two of My Big Pet Peeves About the Credit Repair Industry

The credit repair industry has added value to millions of Americans who suffer due to credit issues. There are countless individuals who directly benefitted from the contributions that myself and other credit repair professionals have made.

On the other hand, I have things that I find particularly annoying about the credit repair industry and the stigmas attached to it.

My name is Aazim Sharp, I am a certified FICO professional and credit improvement strategist. I am author of The Ultimate Credit Repair Guide and founder of Leaf Credit Solutions, a national credit repair organization.

There are a few pet peeves that I have. Let me explain what they are and why I’m bothered


Having been in the credit repair industry for more than 12 years I have seen many credit experts come and go. Many self-proclaimed credit experts who promote credit repair service have never repaired anyone’s credit.

The unfortunate thing about the credit repair industry is that there are no certifications required to repair credit. Credit impacts many areas of your life, handling it is a serious matter. Anyone handling the repair of your credit, should be well qualified and not just by unproven claims of their expertise.

I have helped permanently remove more than 137,000 negative accounts from the credit reports of my clients and people who utilized my tactics and resources through my videos online.  My track record is verifiable, but I would prefer that certification would become a requirement imposed by the government. A step like this would help reduce the number of consumers who get scammed.

Almost every opportunity for financial stability, security and success is connected to your credit report.

It is unfair to categorize an entire industry based on the actions of bad apples in a bunch. Credit repair companies are not all the same. There are some skilled professionals that own or are employed at credit repair companies. There are people who represent themselves as credit repair professionals but know little to nothing about credit and how to repair it.

Have you ever hired someone to do a job and you were not satisfied with the outcome? At some point in your life, you may have received bad service or poor results from a lawyer, contractor, loan officer, beautician, or therapist. I am sure you didn’t conclude that all of the individuals in that industry are the same.

If someone is not educated about how to choose a credit repair company, they could make a bad decision based on assumptions not predicated upon facts. Many people make the mistake of hiring the company with the lowest cost.  Have you ever heard the saying, “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten”?

Before you choose someone to help you repair your credit, look at what you get for your money. Your first question should not be “how much is it”?

I am passionate about credit and helping people improve their credit so they can live the life they deserve. Not being able to get the things you need due to poor credit can be a big inconvenience. You don’t have to live with bad credit for 7 to 10 years.

Most people are under the illusion that they can do nothing about their credit, so they just continue to suffer.

Don’t make this mistake!

You don’t have to live with bad credit for 7 to 10 years.  You can improve your credit, and I want to help.
