How a HECM Helps In Retirement

About Me

article image


I have over 17 years of experience working in the Reverse Mortgage field. I have helped hundreds of homeowners obtain greater financial freedom during retirement by using home equity. During recent years, I have become a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) specialist assisting customers in buying their retirement dream home. My Reverse Mortgage career began with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in April 2007. I have had the privilege of working in other reverse mortgage roles for companies including TowneBank Mortgage where I served as branch manager, Retirement Funding Solutions where I served as Mid-Eastern Sales Manager and currently Mutual of Omaha Mortgage as a HECM Specialist. While with Mutual of Omaha Mortgage, I have been honored to receive the President’s Club award for years 2017-2019.

What I love most about my job is helping people enjoy financial peace of mind in retirement. Additionally, at the end of our loan process, I feel as though I have made new friends. I pride myself on being dedicated to each customer, providing them with knowledge, honesty, and integrity. Just how I hope to be treated myself.

On a personal level, I have been married to my best friend, Becky, for over 39 years. We enjoy traveling to tropical destinations as well as simple things like chatting together on our screened porch. Some of my favorite hobbies include golf, snorkeling, and reading a good book while on vacation.
