Like everyone, I have a story. My story includes a journey from the Midwest to California, which resulted in a career I love and an opportunity to help people. In 1982, I was 22, and I moved to California after graduating cum laude in economics and business administration from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
I didn’t have a job lined up after graduation, and my sister was going through a tough time. She lived in Novato, and I had been out to visit her a few times and loved it. So I packed up my meager belongings, and I headed to the Bay Area. Once I settled in California, I got a job selling office equipment, and one of my first calls was to a mortgage broker who told me I was in the wrong business. He turned out to be right!
Shortly thereafter, I began my career in the mortgage business, and I have stayed in it for over 35 years with the last 10 years spent exclusively offering reverse mortgages to seniors. I have spent my entire career here in the Bay Area.
One of the greatest gifts I was given throughout my life was the time I got to spend with strong, happy, optimistic, smart and funny women. They influenced me and the course of my life. They shaped the person I am today. I always keep the special traits shared with me by these women in my heart and in my mind. I draw on their strength, wisdom and humor often as I continue down this journey called life.
What I love most about my job is the time I get to spend with people who have history and stories and experiences and their willingness to share them. I know that I change people’s lives every single day, and that is very gratifying. When I come home at night, I know I have enriched someone’s world in a very significant way.
If you are thinking about a reverse mortgage, please give us a call. This is a decision that will affect the rest of your life. It is a big decision. Face-to-face education and time to absorb the information is essential to the immediate success of your reverse mortgage but, most importantly, its long-term success.
I am happy to meet with you in the comfort of your own home. We will explore what you hope a reverse mortgage will provide. I will review all the information and then leave it with you to re-review, mull over and decide if it is right for you. If it is, give me a call back, and we will get started.
In the meantime, remember, this is what you worked for your entire life – enjoy every day!
