A Message from Richelle Hopkins

“I am a 100% firm believer in a HECM, but only for the right person. My goal is to provide the best education experience, so my client can then make an educated decision. I feel too many times, people miss out on the opportunity that a HECM may provide, because they just haven’t been fully educated. If the HECM happens to be a fit, I go above and beyond to provide the best service experience, treating each of my clients, as if they were my own parents or grandparents. My clients range from WWII Vets, to retired doctors and business owners, to Baby Boomers and everything in between…it is an honor for them to share their journey with me, and allow me to be a part of their life. I am blessed everyday to get to wake up and do what I do!”
