Learn the advantages of a reverse mortgage. Enjoy our videos below.

Formally known as a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), a reverse mortgage loan has helped more than a million American homeowners realize a better retirement. Use the tax-free proceeds to make home repairs, pay for medical care or cover everyday expenses.

No two retirements are the same, so feel comfort knowing we have you covered. I work directly with older homeowners, their family members and Advisors to show the possibilities reverse mortgage loans open. For most, the use of home equity in retirement today is essential. Let me help structure a personalized solution that will meet your retirement needs.

Dinah credits a reverse mortgage for keeping her connected to her neighborhood. Her circa-1950s home has a street-facing front door, one of the few in the neighborhood, that she opens to a constant, happy hum of cars and children passing by. Her health provider is just a short jaunt away. The neighborhood is a multi-ethnic blend of older and newer families, where she says everyone is supportive of one another.

When the pandemic struck, many Hollywood studios shut down or scaled back their production, upending the income of part-time actors like Linda M. Fortunately for Linda, she had a reverse mortgage in place to help supplement her income, and now with better times ahead, this creative soul is ready for many more closeups.
