Reverse Mortgage Success Stories
At Senior Funding Group, there is no greater joy than seeing the lives of our clients dramatically improved as a result of our hard work! We love our clients and they love us – please take a moment to read the kind words below, which are actual letters from actual clients.
Sit back for a minute and read a wonderful story!
If you are lucky once in a lifetime you meet someone so special you wonder what you did to deserve this. Special people are those that, to them, it is irrelevant whom or what you are. They see a need and strive to fill it with all their resources. These people are few and far between and I am so lucky to have one of them walk into my life. These are people who want nothing from you nor expect anything i n return other than to see this stranger happy. Such a person is Garrison Gross – Sales Manager for the Senior Funding Group a division of Franklin First Financial Ltd. Melville, New York. Garrison is todays definition of a mensch (a Yiddish word used to describe a person of integrity, honor and dignity. One who should be emulated.)
I met Mr. Gross through a Senior Advisor at Senior Funding Group. Garrison has a good understanding of people and right then and there he promised to get me this reverse mortgage that I needed so badly!! I did not know what was ahead of m e, and for their part neither did they. After a few weeks they began to realize this was a project and sought the help of the next man up the scale. With him the TEAM was formed!
My daughter had just had my first grandson and at the same time earned a double EDD. Oh yes, in between she found the time to get married. All of this together was very taxing on her. Sometimes you can be “ too ambitious”. All in all this life deserted me when my family moved to Wisconsin to earn a living. After so many years of helping others, I was left with nothing except my home and some friends. However now I have an extended family thru Senior Funding Group.
My life has been a difficult one. I was a nurse for 38 years then an OTJ put me permanently out of work. It wasn’t just work, it was a wonderfully successful career. The possibility of losing my home is looming over me. Garrison took the bull by the horns until he and his team accomplished their goal!
Together with Garrison leading the charge, the Reverse Mortgage came through. After many “no”s, a “yes” was finally heard. This miracle represented many weeks of time, digging thru forms, rules and regulations, examining for “ways and means” to appear, and dedication by Garrison and the other TEAM members. 2 and a half months of intensive hours was the priority with which they treated MY NEED.
Sheer and utter determination for this persons profound need has indeed turned Garrison into a MENSCH. His picture should be in the dictionary under the word. No matter how people feel about the banking industry II found the BRIGHT LIGHT – Garrison Gross and the team at Senior funding Group. No finer people exist and no better team at working together. They are an entry into the CREDIT column of life! If there is any kind of industry recognition for humanity Garrison Gross and the TEAM have no competition although I think that the accomplishment in itself is a big reward to them !!
For me it is a life saver. My home is once again secure and I can live with my dignity back. Now back to work knowing first hand the good this program does.
FROM A VERY HAPPY CLIENT
“We just received a reverse mortgage through the SENIOR FUNDING GROUP. A division of Franklin First Financial. Our reverse mortgage was handled by DAVID PLOTSKER AND HIS GROUP. There are not enough good things that I can say about David and his group.
I started a year and a half ago working with a large group that was advertising often on T.V. It was one problem after another. Three years ago I had a heart transplant and had a lot of medical expenses. With a common name there were three liens two were settled and one wasn’t mine. While I was trying to clear the one that wasn’t mine the company kept passing our account to anther agent. Within the year and a half we had three different agents. By this time we were going into foreclosure I had given up and was accepting the fact that i was going to lose my home.
I received a call from David asking if I was still interested in a reverse mortgage. I explained how long I had been trying and that I was finished and giving up on getting a reverse mortgage. David asked me to tell him about the problems I was having, after listening he said he could close in four weeks. I told him “if you think you can then go for it”. David drove two hours to my home to complete the paperwork and we began. A member of David’s team called me one time to tell me that they found 113 pages of liens with the same name as me, I was told not to worry they would work through it.
The next call that I received was from David. When I saw the number on the caller ID, I told my wife “here come the problems”. Here’s the conversion. “ Hello Dave, what’s wrong?” – “John, I wanted to know are you ready to close Monday at 4 pm“. We closed in 4 weeks.
DAVID AND HIS TEAM SAVED MY FAMILY HOME, PAID OFF MY MORTGAGE AND A SMALL MEDICAL LIEN THAT WAS MINE. DAVID NOT ONLY SAVED MY HOME BUT GAVE ME AND MY WIFE OUR LIFE BACK. IN 7 DAYS I WILL RETIRE. WITHOUT DAVID AND HIS TEAM I WOULD HAVE HAD TO WORK UNTIL I DIED.
I would strongly recommend David and his team over any other company offering a reverse mortgage. Not only was David and his team professional, but I gained a friend for life.”
