My Longest Living Reverse Mortgage Client

FOW088My longest living client called me the other day. Three years ago I helped her with her reverse mortgage. At that time she was 96 years old. I met with her and her nephew and explained all of the benefits of a reverse mortgage, as well as all of the future implications. She had had her home free and clear and simply needed to supplement her income and have some money left on the side for emergency purposes. A very common situation.

Today she is 99. She called me and in her sweet voice said, “This is Mary Smith . . . do you remember me?” Well, of course, I remembered her. . . . how could I forget her? Though she is 99, she still gets around. Her favorite thing to do is to gamble. Now she doesn’t do it real often, but she has a friend that takes her to the casinos periodically. In fact, the last time she went she won $1,000. But of course, she decided to give it back.

One of Ms. Smith’s favorite things to do is to garden. Even at 99 she keeps up her yard, getting on her knees, and working the soil so that it produces the best harvest possible. She told me that she has done it since she was a little girl. Her mother taught her all of the ins and outs of gardening, and she still loves it today.

My favorite memory of Ms. Smith is how she gets around the house. Yes, she is 99, but she pushes a walker like there is no tomorrow. She knows where she wants to go and she gets there without a bump in the road. Ms. Smith also loves to do puzzles. I suppose that that is why she is so sharp. Her mind is incredible.

It is a gift to be a part of the lives of my clients. We talk periodically and I continue to assist them in any way that I can.  With all of the lender issues occuring today, they are often concerned that the economic conditions will effect their prized reverse mortgage.  I am always happy to tell them that they are safe and secure!
