Reverse Mortgage Funding (RMF) on Tuesday announced the hiring of two reverse mortgage professionals to its third-party origination (TPO) division.
Effective immediately, Brandy Edwards joins RMF as Regional Account Executive, a position which supports the company’s TPO sales channel. In this position, Edwards will be based in California and will report to Mark O’Neil, national sales leader for wholesale and correspondent sales.
Edwards joins RMF from Liberty Home Equity Solutions, Inc., where she spent nearly seven years as regional account manager. Prior to this, she spent two years at Financial Freedom, where she served as a national account manager.
Edwards also received a Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional designation from the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association, and has also served as the chair of the National Aging in Place Council’s Orange County chapter.
“Brandy has a proven track record of driving new business opportunities and delivering exceptional service and support, and we are thrilled to welcome her to our third-party team,” O’Neil said in a written statement. “She possesses the desired industry experience that we require in our Account Executives and joins one of the longest tenured teams in the industry who, on average, have over 10 years’ experience in reverse mortgages.”
Also joining RMF’s west coast operations is Natalie Santos, who will assume the role of Relationship Manager.
Santos comes to RMF from Summit Funding, Inc., where she served as a junior underwriter. She brings with her over four years of experience in reverse mortgages, having also spent time as a Wholesale Pipeline Manager at Liberty Home Equity Solutions, Inc.
In her new role, Santos will report to TPO Partner Support Lead Jamie Girard.
“Brandy and Natalie are talented and experienced individuals who are well-versed in all phases of the reverse mortgage process, and dedicated to providing exemplary customer service throughout each step,” said RMF President David Peskin in a written statement. “We believe their ability to connect with customers and offer an informed perspective on reverse mortgages and the industry will help us further solidify our brand along the west coast.”
