Michael Fullam, owner and founder, comes to the Reverse home mortgage industry with 20 years of experience in Accounting & Taxation. Michael made the decision to open a business that educated and helped seniors with retirement income options on the benefits of Reverse home mortgages. Aware of the challenges and lifestyle facing seniors, he became a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) to better serve their financial needs. There is a code of ethics and principals for all who are in good standing with the society of Certified Senior Advisors. If a reverse home mortgage does not perfectly fit a client’s needs, Michael Fullam will recommend a traditional mortgage refinance, a Nestworth Equity Access Agreement, or a consultation with a financial advisor or accountant. In some cases, clients are referred to a trust attorney who sets up an instrument to pass all remaining equity to beneficiaries without going through Probate.
A Certified Senior Advisor is a senior lifestyle professional – with a plus. The CSA designation is a universal supplement to anyone who works with seniors. CSAs understand and communicate with seniors on the financial decisions that most influence their lives. And if they can’t help seniors directly, CSAs know how to find the help that is needed. Other designations teach about products or professions. CSA’s teach about people. Please visit the CSA website: http://www.society-csa.com/
