    I bought my house with Fred's help and later refinanced it with Fred. Both times were complex given my personal situations. Fred was compassionate and tenacious in getting me through all the barriers I faced. I have worked with many loan officers in 30 years and Fred is the best!

    Fred is very knowledgeable about the rates and is very helpful thought the whole process no matter what you are doing. Ie new home loan, refi, etc. He will work to ensure you get the best rates possible and have all the information up front. He also goes out of his way to keep you posted if rates drop and you want to consider lowering your rates. We have worked with Fred over the past five years and give him a ! Some companies say they can get you a lower interest rate, but don't tell you you are paying for that lower rate. Fred does not do that. If he can't get you a lower rate he will tell you what the rates are. So glad to work with him. Completely recommend!!!

    Refinancing in my world is never "easy". Fred and April made it "painless."
    I truly appreciate the help both provided, the quick replies to questions and April's authentic cheerleading. It helps! I recommend them with no hesitation.

    I have refinanced many times and this was one of the easiest transactions that I have ever completed. From the fir application with Fred and then talking and working with his processor, April Swift, it was painless,. I always knew the status of my loan. Especially being an underwriter for over 40 loans, it was a pleasure working with you, Fred, and April (who know what they are doing. I would highly recommend anyone to call you for for a purchase or refinance of a mortgage. Thank you loads. Much appreciated. Bernie

About HECM (Reverse Mortgage)

At the conclusion of the term of the reverse mortgage loan contract, some or all of the equity in the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage no longer belongs to you and you may need to sell or transfer the property to repay the proceeds of the reverse mortgage from the proceeds of the sale or transfer or you must otherwise repay the reverse mortgage with interest from your other assets.

We may charge an origination fee, a mortgage insurance premium, closing costs or servicing fees for the reverse mortgage, all or any of which will be added to the balance of the reverse mortgage loan

The balance of the reverse mortgage loan grows over time and interest is charged on the outstanding loan balance.

You retain title to the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage until you sell or transfer the property and therefore you are responsible for paying property taxes, insurance, maintenance and related taxes. Failing to pay these amounts may cause the reverse mortgage loan to become due immediately and may be subject to a tax lien or other encumbrance or to possible foreclosure; and

Interest on a reverse mortgage is not deductible from the person’s income tax return until the person repays all or part of the reverse mortgage loan

Reduced Documentation loans (No Doc, No Income/No Asset, Stated Asset, No Ratio)

These products may have higher interest rate, more points or more fees than other products that require more documentation, including income documentation.
