Our passion is helping seniors overcome the challenge of not having enough income or cash. The financial tool we specialize in is a reverse mortgage. We help homeowners, home buyers, and professionals who refer to us.

  •  What are the benefits, costs, pros and cons?
  •  What are the steps and how long do they take?


This article includes two videos: 1) an Overview of the process; 2) an Explanation of each of the steps, and an opportunity to download a one-page Map that shows approximately when steps occur.
