The Good

  • Attorney on Staff
  • 90-Day Money-Back Performance Warranty
  • Custom Action Plan
  • Responsive Customer Service
  • Essentials Plan 

Credit Repair Resources serves nearly all 50 states (except Georgia, South Carolina, and Oregon), and provides a number of payment options that cater to customers' specific needs. The Essentials plan features a six-month performance warranty, meaning if the company is unable to resolve all your incorrect or outdated information within six months, you will be given a refund (not including the upfront fee). On all other plans, customers are given a 90-day money-back performance warranty. Also, for cases that extend beyond six months, Credit Repair Resources applies variable pricing on its three most expensive plans. This adjustment can drastically reduce the cost of long-term credit repair.

Attorney on Staff

Credit Repair Resource's lead attorney has over 20 years of experience in consumer law.

Custom Action Plan

Responsive Customer Service

Essentials Plan 

Clients can cancel this plan at any time. This plan also provides clients with personal case managers for individualized focus. 

The Bad

  • Does Not Obtain Credit Reports from Reporting Agencies
  • Plans Can Get Pricey

One area in which Credit Repair Resources could improve is obtaining credit reports directly from the reporting agencies themselves; the company instead works with other credit monitoring services to obtain these reports. While some credit monitoring companies provide accurate results, there is no guarantee these secondary sources are reporting exactly what is found with the reporting agencies themselves. Credit Repair Resource features some plans that are much more expensive than those of leading credit repair companies. 

Does Not Obtain Credit Reports from Reporting Agencies

Credit Repair Resources instead relies on other credit monitoring services to obtain reports.

Plans Can Get Pricey

Credit Repair Resource's Mortgage Track plan costs $349 upfront and six subsequent payments of $99. The alternative is the essentials plan, which may take 3-6 months longer than the Mortgage Track plan, but requires an initial cost of $149 wth $79 subsequent payments. 

The Bottom Line

In summary, Credit Repair Resources provides a number of flexible options and warranties to ensure that you are not paying more than you need to for services rendered; however, customers who require extensive credit repair will end up paying significantly more with Credit Repair Resources than with most other leading credit repair companies. Customers should also be aware that the company does not obtain credit reports directly from the credit reporting agencies (Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian). If you are in the market for basic credit repair and want a knowledgeable attorney on your side, Credit Repair Resources is a good option. But if you're in need of intensive services, you may find a more cost-effective option elsewhere.

It's pricey ($99/month plus an initial deposit of $100 something) and the process is lengthy (even if they determine that you're credit clean up will be "express" aka 6 months or less) but I have seen a slight improvement in my credit score and I am very close to purchasing my first home

I was trying to buy a house and was referred by my realtor to Credit Repair Resources because my credit score was on the low side. I am very pleased with the service I received! Not only was their customer service responsive they were knowledgeable. They treated me like a person and didn't make me feel badly about my situation. Once they fixed my credit report I was able to qualify to buy my house. The entire process was explained to me and I knew what to expect.

I have been a Mortgage Banker for over 15 years. I have dealt with many companies, that say we can help you increase your business. Most after 60 days fizzle out. Broken promises, and terrible service. Dealing with Chad and his team at CRR, has been a renewal of hope that someone actually can deliver what they promise. Not only have they increased my business. But by helping my customer qualify for their dream home. They have helped me build strong relationships, that bring increased referrals. With a weekly updates on my files, it gives me free time to do what I do best. Which is talking and selling new clients. I love receiving my "thank you letters" from CRR. But honestly, I should be thanking them. My name is Robert N. Szalay Branch Manager at Cross Country Mortgage. I am a CRR Customer/Client/Friend for life.

When we decided to use CRR, we completed many of the credit repair actions ourselves to improve our score with the three credit bureaus. We knew what needed to be worked on to improve our score from attending self credit repair classes and reading available information. During our first interview, we identified what needed to be worked on first and we followed up with an email identifying the priority to focus on to include forwarding supporting documents for our disputes. The main priority that we identified requiring action first is still on our credit report after six months with CRR. We feel that we were not heard during the initial interview or the initial email we sent. We are not satisfied with the overall credit repair process and our last follow up was late and not conducted. Therefore, we decided to end services with CRR. We are disappointed in the service provided and we ended up coming behind CRR to perform actions that should have been completed several months ago on our behalf which is why we rate them a two. I responded to the President's request for feedback twice before posting this review and a third time today.

I really loved how your group was able to fulfill all that you have promised and I am very greatful for that. I do however feel communication can fall short some times. I also noticed that attention to details were not there as well. There were several times when I had to tell someone to check my file because the were saying they didn't receive a document that I did in fact sent. There is an employee whom I feel went above and beyond for me. Kristen was absolutely the best in helping me resolve my issue even when it was time to go home. I think an employee's like that are what helps your company thrive and let's people know that u are not just a name on a paper but you are a person that matters. Thank you everyone for everything you have done. Most of all thank you for being so patient with me.

As usual great job today! This business and the intricacies of it (especially your field) fascinates me still after 23 years. You do a tremendous job. I think you truly need to do – DON'T LAUGH…..an infomercial! I have been to 3 of your courses now over the past few years, always wanted to learn the latest in this area, as so much of my business is counseling. I particularly am called a credit counselor by many agents, as I spend so much time for clients, knowing that it will pay off in the end. I'm no competitor, believe me, I do not do what you do, but use the same knowledge at least to educate. I always look for areas for any networking growth, and I think you should have meetings with the RETAIL side of the Bank in the area of the product we have through Identity Alert and partner with your company. All of our branches push this product, and offer the PC education for the credit piece, so we have the branch knowledge of how our system works to get, review and simulate credit, and then your information should be given for those that are using this program to enhance or build credit. If interested I can get you in touch with the right people. And then, I still think you should do an infomercial. Every borrower on earth should hear what you had to say today, and then some. We all learned and thought about our own credit while doing so, as will the “viewers”.
