Office: 512-545-2066

Hello, and welcome to my website.

As a licensed reverse mortgage consultant with Finance of America Reverse LLC (FAR)—one of the nation’s leading reverse mortgage lenders—I am honored to serve homeowners age 62 and older in the Central Texas Region and other major Texas markets. I’m dedicated to helping them leverage the power of home equity to achieve greater financial independence. The best part of my job is providing reverse mortgage education to senior clients and their trusted advisors so they can make an informed financial decision..

Before I started working in the reverse mortgage business, I spent 40 years in traditional mortgage banking holding sales and sales management positions. I have held a Real Estate Broker license for 45 years, although I am not currently active.  In addition, I am a Vietnam Veteran having served in the Army Infantry after graduating from Officer Candidate School.

When I’m not working with borrowers or educating people about reverse mortgages, I volunteer with the Austin Senior Resource Alliance and participate in activities and functions with Austin Mortgage Bankers Association and Financial Planner Association of Austin.

Please consider me a resource. I invite you to explore my website to learn more—and please contact me if you have any questions or would like a free reverse mortgage consultation. I’m happy to share my expertise, answer all your questions, and help you determine if a reverse mortgage is a good financial solution for you. And if so, I’ll guide you through the loan process, every step of the way.

Did you know?

According to a recent study, 53% of households comprised of people who are age 65 are “at risk” of not having enough funds to maintain their standard of living during retirement. And using a reverse mortgage can reduce that risk. 1

In recent years, reverse mortgages have become a smart and safe way for people age 62 and over to be better financially prepared for the future—and live more comfortably. This retirement financing tool can be used to:

  • Pay off existing mortgage or home equity loan
  • Supplement income
  • Reduce monthly expenses such as car payments or credit cards
  • Establish a cash reserve for future needs
  • Buy a home that better fits their life
