Reverse Mortgage Funding (RMF) is expanding its reverse mortgage sales channel in the Southeast region with the hiring of J. Alexis Lopez Carril.
Carril joins RMF as regional account manager in the Southern Florida area, a position that supports the company’s third-party origination (TPO) sales channel. In this new role, Carril will report to RMF National Sales Leader Mark O’Neil.
“Alexis’ experience, professionalism and commitment to delivering the highest levels of customer service make her a perfect addition to our rapidly growing team of reverse mortgage professionals,” O’Neil said in a written statement. “Throughout her distinguished career, Alexis has honed her skills as a sales and reverse mortgage expert and we look forward to the value she will bring to our organization and customers.”
Bringing with her more than 15 years of sales and lending experience, Carril most recently served as a wholesale sales and operations consultant for mortgage startup Lending Direct Inc.
Before that, she was a wholesale account executive at HighTech Lending Inc., where she specialized in originating Federal Housing Administration-approved reverse mortgages and recruiting new TPO broker partners.
Carril’s resume also includes positions at United Northern Mortgage Bankers, Ltd. and American Bancshares, LLC, working as a reverse mortgage trainer.
“RMF has built a dynamic third-party origination’s team of which I am glad to be a part of,” Carril said in a written statement. “I will focus all of my efforts on helping to facilitate the organization’s continued growth and success.”
The addition of Carril is the latest in a series of new hires for RMF. Last month, the company announced it hired Laura Bihuniak Kennedy to take on a similar role for RMF’s Southeast region.
RMF is a top-10 reverse mortgage industry lender in terms of loan volume. In April, the company saw its Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) endorsements jump 82.4% to their highest total in the company’s history, according to the most recent report from Reverse Market Insight.
As of April 2015, the company reported 1,801 HECM endorsements in the trailing 12 months since May 2014.
