About Me

Bob Tranchell has a BA in Religion from the University of Massachusetts. He also studied vocal performance at Boston University and Arabic language at the American University of Cairo. His professional career has always centered on improving the lives of those he comes in contact with. He spent 18 years in the ministry many of them overseas in developing countries, before making the transition into the HECM industry.

Working exclusively in the HECM industry for the past 21 years, he established himself as an industry expert excelling at sharing the value of home equity retirement planning. Education has always been the hallmark of his career where he has developed curriculum for CFPs, CPAs, and Realtors, and has taught hundreds of professionals the value of using HECMs in retirement planning. He enjoys utilizing HECM financing to meet the range of needs that are expressed by his clients. He has written loans for those in foreclosures and for others with multi-million-dollar portfolios. Bob has a passion for his work, because he has seen time and time again how home equity management allows his clients the dignity, quality of life, and financial security they deserve.

Bob and his wife Laurie, of 38 years, live on Cape Cod. They have three grown children: Amira, Alessio (wife Caroline) and Ashley. Life near the ocean meets Bob’s love of sunsets and sailing. He can also be found volunteering at assisted living communities sharing his love of music, performing Broadway, and “Old Standard” reviews for the residents.
