Turning Home-Equity Into Life-Quality

Get Started

Meet YourBranch Sales Manager Debbie French

As a Branch Sales Manager, I’m passionate about empowering seniors with knowledge about the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) loan. 

My journey with reverse mortgages began with a 90-year-old woman who, despite outliving her financial resources, was determined to remain in her home. Witnessing the profound impact of this program firsthand ignited my dedication to helping seniors from all walks of life.

Growing up, my mother was a mortgage lender. I witnessed how the HECM loan enabled her to stay in her home for many years after my father's passing despite a significant reduction in income. This personal experience reinforced my belief in the transformative power of the HECM program.

Alongside my husband, Joe, who shares my passion for mortgages and real estate, we've dedicated our lives to serving clients in these industries. Family is central to our lives, and we cherish moments spent with our son, daughter-in-law and precious granddaughter, Vienna. When we're not working, you'll find us enjoying the outdoors on our boat, teeing off on the golf course or exploring new destinations.

I’m immensely grateful for my Fairway Family and our exceptional HECM Team, and I'm thrilled to have you here. Together, we're committed to helping you explore your options and determine if the HECM program is the right fit for you. Let's connect soon!

What is a Reverse Mortgage Loan?

A reverse mortgage is a unique loan that allows those 62 years of age and older to convert a portion of the equity they have built up in their homes into cash and defer repayment until they pass away or move out. The loan can provide you with cash that you can use now, help you develop a line of credit, and more, giving you more financial flexibility in retirement.
