Customer Testimonial: How a Reverse Mortgage Loan Changed Her Financial Horizon
Linda had put in some research into reverse mortgage loans over the years and was not convinced that it was right for her.
But after her financial advisor suggested that today’s reverse mortgage loan could provide her with financial flexibility, she came across Fairway and changed her mind. She credits Fairway with providing thorough information and guiding her through every step of the process.
She’s relieved to have money to fall back on and credits her reverse mortgage loan for enhancing her entire financial situation. When asked if she would recommend Fairway, she says, “Yeah, I would definitely recommend Fairway. Absolutely.”
My name is Linda Rose Guthrie. I've lived in Atlanta since 1972. I grew up in Illinois in the western suburb of Chicago called Downers Grove, and I love Atlanta.
My financial advisor looked at my situation, my financial situation, and said, you ought to consider a reverse mortgage. It sounded good to me because it would give me some flexibility.
I had done some research on my own over the years on reverse mortgages, and I was not impressed. Fairway had a lot of information for me and that was very important to me.
And so they took me through every possible step in the process of getting a reverse mortgage and then how can I access the funds after the reverse mortgage. I understood the process and it's been relatively easy to draw down on them. I feel as though
I now have some money that I can fall back on, if I need it. And it really just changed everything.
It really did change my entire financial horizon because I'm now a person on a fixed income. And, of course you could have a reverse mortgage and still have money left depending on your situation.
So I just think it's an ideal answer to somebody in their retirement years.
Well, it's a huge financial decision, you know, putting up your house. And so again, there was a lot of information that Fairway had that I read every word and I asked questions. After that I felt comfortable with Fairway.
Yeah, I would definitely recommend Fairway. Absolutely.
