About Colette

reverse mortgage agent in los angeles For many years I successfully owned and operated a service business catering to the needs of a mainly senior clientele. I saw first-hand how my clients coped with the issues of age and retirement. I also saw how some people I’d always assumed were wealthy had lost huge portions of their retirement accounts due to market downturns. Watching them cope after their nest eggs were depleted in the financial crisis when they needed the money most was heart rending. They’d saved most of their lives to have that money in retirement and for many of them, it was no longer available.

When my own mother experienced her own financial crunch she told me she’d been thinking about getting a reverse mortgage. I asked her not to do anything until I had a chance to do some research. What I’d heard about them was not very good and I was concerned she might fall prey to some sort of scam. Luckily, I was able to go right to HUD’s Reverse Mortgage website to get some honest information.

Once I read about reverse mortgages I knew that this type of loan would suit her needs perfectly. I realized right away that if you understand how they work, many people could use them to have a better retirement. We put her application in with a local company and that was it. The whole process took about six weeks to complete.

In 2005 I sold my service business and began my new career in the reverse mortgage industry. My involvement in my own mother’s loan helped me learn a lot. Mostly I learned what a sense of relief she’d gotten by using the reverse mortgage to rework her finances. She was able to sleep better and didn’t worry so much about how she’d pay her bills. She had money to hire a home health care aide to keep the house clean and cook her meals and just keep her company. It made a huge difference in her life. It made a huge difference in my life, too. It was very difficult to help out with most things living 3,000 miles away. Getting her a reverse mortgage helped her address her daily needs, and it helped me to know she was comfortable and much less anxious about how to take care of herself and her home.

Since then I’ve helped a lot of people get a better handle on how they would finance their retirement years. I love the feeling I get from helping my borrowers age in place.

I can tell you I’m honest, reliable, and hard working I am but you’d probably rather hear what my clients have to say about me. That’s why I’m posting some videos of what my clients have to say about me. Look no further if you’re looking for a┬áReverse mortgage agent in Los Angeles.
