Generation Mortgage recently announced that John Lucas has joined their California branch as a reverse mortgage originator. Lucas brings over 19 years of reverse mortgage experience to the company and is the co-author of Reverse Mortgages for Dummies.
“We are ecstatic to have John join our Retail Division. He has years of industry experience, and along with national credibility, he will greatly expand our Southern California presence,” said Phil Goss, Generation’s California Branch Manager.
Lucas began originating reverse mortgages in 1989 when HUD was testing out the HECM with a select group of lenders and has played a key role in the growth of the industry over the years. “I gave a great deal of thought when choosing a lender with which to associate; My criteria was to find a company with stability during these difficult times, one that is committed to the reverse mortgage industry and who was also very committed to servicing our senior clients with integrity and a desire to enrich their lives. Generation Mortgage was my clear-cut choice,” said Lucas.
In 2005, Lucas co-authored, “Reverse Mortgages for Dummies” with Sarah Glendon Lyons, to provide a common sense guide that covers all the reverse mortgage basics. The book is published by the same people who brought you Excel for Dummies and countless other “Dummies” titles.
