Mel is uniquely prepared to help you take advantage of a Reverse Mortgage, or more specifically – a “Home Equity Conversion Mortgage” (HECM). He and his wife first learned about the HECM program when they refinanced their own home in 2008. This was such a blessing that Mel felt a passionate desire to leave a successful real estate career to focus exclusively on helping Seniors take advantage of this little understood program. Since then, he has used his knowledge of finance, real estate, business and estate planning to assist many others in utilizing Reverse Mortgages to meet the challenges of these tumultuous days.
After a successful career with IBM, Mel felt called to help faith based ministries improve their effectiveness. This led to the creation of a nationwide training and consulting ministry along with a computer company that developed one of the first PC based systems for churches and non-profits
