Newspaper Mailbag: Nice Change From the Typical Coverage

201004042036.jpgOregon’s Democrat Herald published a letter from a reader which is a nice change from the typical reverse mortgage opinions we see published in newspapers. See below.

Mailbag: An adviser you can trust

I would like to offer a bit of friendly advice based on a recent personal experience. Financial difficulties have become all too common of late for many people in all walks of life. In my situation, it followed the accidental death of my husband of nearly 30 years.

I was in need of professional assistance. Through my lawyer, Mr. J. Phillips, I was introduced to the senior loan officer at U Max Mortgage, Mr. Gary Baker.

A thorough evaluation of my situation was made and a reverse mortgage was suggested. I needed more information and Gary patiently provided it. He carefully wrote down everything right in full view.

I quickly saw that Gary valued his time and mine. He made appointments in a timely manner and kept them. I was impressed, not only by his obvious knowledge of the subject matter, but his ease responding to my questions.

Gary has a special gift that allows him to keep his focus on the issues at hand. His clear thinking helped me see my complex situation from a more positive perspective. There was never any pressure as he stayed right with me all the way.

Gary is a veteran of the USMC. I don’t need to tell you they know how to keep the cadence and they have the ability to go until they have reached their goal.

My stress-filled life has settled down. I can tell you with all confidence that if you are considering a reverse mortgage or if you simply need some good financial advice, give Gary a call at (541) 258-7687. I think you will find all that I have shared with you true to the letter.
