"fast" works for credit repair only in the commercials, and then they are lying.

In addition to the other poster's input, pay all your bills on time (100% of the time).   Have only 1 or 2 credit cards and don't max them out.

7 yrs. Then the records can start to be removed from your credit report. All you need to do is request it from the 3 credit bureaus.
