Meet YourSenior Loan Officer - Reverse Mortgage SpecialistMelinda Debus

I’ve been married for 30 years and have a beautiful set of fraternal twins as well as four amazing standard poodles. I truly love this amazing industry. I have the privilege of helping my clients in changing their lives for the better and taking the stress and fear out of retirement. It has been a privilege to have been in the mortgage industry since I began my journey 1991 in Southern California.

I have learned so much and I continue to learn each day, not only about mortgage, but most important, doing the best job I can in servicing my clients. Listening, trust, outstanding service, and great communication in my opinion, are the 4 most important qualities I feel I must deliver consistently, in order to make my valued clients and business partners feel confident, secure, and well cared for during the most important transaction of their lives. I’m dealing with real people. Real families that have feelings, questions, concerns and goals.

It is my honor and duty to provide each client with the very best experience possible through the entire loan process now, and in the future. My success depends on my client’s positive experience, testimonials, and referrals, so my performance is critical. I believe that my success is not measured by the amount of loans I close, but by the way I make my clients feel and how that reflects on Fairway Independent Mortgage Company. I would love opportunity to help you change your life for the better.
