About Me

Mark Schumacher, a Yankee transplant, found his home in Greenville more than 15 years ago and has no plans of leaving. Along with his wife and children, he has fully embraced the Southern lifestyle and cherishes every moment spent here.

In his professional life, Mark specializes in guiding retirees on how to bolster their retirement income plan by leveraging their home equity through a home equity conversion mortgage (HECM), also known as a reverse mortgage.

“Our clients are frequently taken aback by how effectively we can help them achieve their retirement goals by utilizing an otherwise idle asset — their home,” according to Mark.

Mark says that home equity often remains an untapped asset among retirees. As a seasoned Home Equity Retirement Specialist, Mark assists financial advisors and their clients in safely and effectively bolstering their retirement income outlook by leveraging this dormant asset — their home.

The Upstate is an ideal place for retirement. Its picturesque landscapes, moderate climate with four distinct seasons, low property taxes, and overall affordable cost of living make it a practical choice.

When not working, Mark loves spending time outdoors with his family. His hobbies include playing tennis, biking, hiking, and he hopes to someday master his mother’s exceptional gardening skills.

Mark also dedicates his time to serving the community. He delivers meals to local residents who are unable to leave their homes through the Meals on Wheels program.

He and his wife are avid hikers and enjoy exploring the trails at Paris Mountain State Park, Table Rock State Park, among others. They also love biking on the Swamp Rabbit Trail and the Doodle Trail.

Professionally, Mark has been an active member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) since 2016. He was also a former member of Toastmasters.
