Paul’s introduction to the reverse mortgage industry was very personal. In 2010, his mother, a retired nurse, was struggling to maintain her standard of living. Her social security income and modest pension were not keeping pace with rapidly increasing property taxes and the normal costs of living. Moving her out of the family home and into an apartment was simply unimaginable. After helping her to navigate the loan process, the positive changes to her life were dramatic and immediate. Her reverse mortgage made it possible for her to remain in her home while also having discretionary income to live the retirement she deserves.
Prior to this experience, Paul had spent 30 years in commercial/multi-family property management. Although he loved the challenge of this demanding work, he ‘retired’ in 2016 in order to focus the last chapter of his career on helping others achieve a less stressful retirement through the FHA’s reverse mortgage program. Paul has subsequently assisted hundreds of families in achieving their retirement goals through the strategic use of their equity and deeply appreciates the lasting friendships that have been formed along the way.
Married since 1988, Paul and his wife have two adult children and enjoy sailing, hiking, gardening and making repairs to their 1911 farmhouse. Paul’s wife also graciously allows him to sing in a band one or two nights per week.
