Reverse Mortgage Focus, a division of Georgetown Mortgage, announced Tuesday the hiring of industry veteran David Cook to expand its retail channel.
Cook joined Financial Freedom in 2004 with 40 years of mortgage banking experience and has remained in the reverse mortgage space ever since. He has also worked for Senior Lending Network, Network Funding, and most recently as National Wholesale Manager with Liberty Home equity Solutions.
“I have learned from some of the very best and it is always a difficult decision to leave a team like the one Liberty has put together,” says Cook of his recruitment by Reverse Mortgage Focus. “Despite the many opportunities I have had in this industry, my heart has always been at the kitchen table working with seniors. Georgetown Mortgage is everything I was looking for in order to get back into retail.”
Georgetown Mortgage is a Full-Eagle correspondent lender for both forward and reverse mortgages based in Georgetown, Texas. Cook will divide his time between working with Texas real estate professionals to promote the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase program, which is now available in Texas, helping attract additional production channels to Georgetown Mortgage, and working directly with seniors.
“With David’s experience and reputation in Texas mortgage banking and his deep desire to work with seniors, Georgetown Mortgage has hit a home run,” says Georgetown Mortgage CEO Roy Jones.
