Greg was introduced to us through our financial planner. We wanted to opt for a monthly payment and learned it wasn't great enough. Greg brought to all of our attention that our monthly need will be there eventually. We placed all monies into a growing line of credit and will convert the funds to a monthly payment at a more appropriate time. All worked out and brought to our attention by Greg Laks. Can't thank u enough and highly recommend.

Greg Laks oversaw our reverse mortgage loan when one his loan officer's went out of town. They both did an excellent job and completed our transaction timely without a problem. I highly recommend Greg and his team! Our future will be less stressful thanks to them.

Greg Laks helped me with my HECM 2+ years ago and again this past month. He's excellent and I highly recommend him. He explained the growth factor with our new Line of Credit which I was most attracted too. Keep up the great work, Greg!

I had the great pleasure of working with Greg Laks on my reverse mortgage loan. The assurance that he gave me from our first meeting carried throughout the loan process all the way to the closing as well as kind follow ups after. He is calm, confident and professional in every manner. There is no doubt that he couldn't address any question or concern myself and my family had without hesitation. This was stress free and peace of mind to work with him. I would recommend Greg Laks to anyone for their home loan needs.

Greg Laks performed an outstanding job with our HECM. I couldn't imagine beginning and ending this process anywhere else besides with him. He was very communicative and spot on with expectations! My family and I recommend Greg.

I can't tell you how appreciative we are to have met, Greg Laks. He is kind, considerate and over the top in how he enjoys his work. We had a complex transaction and he handled all moving parts with ease. We felt he took on some of the work himself that others should have completed. That's what you get with Mr. Laks!

I can't say enough good things about Greg Laks! Knowledgeable, professional, polite, caring, honest and efficient are just a few words that immediately come to mind. Everything turned out exactly as we discussed. In addition the whole process through closing was less than a month. I am so glad that once I decided to go through with the Reverse Mortgage I went with Greg. I very highly recommend him!

Greg provided full services in our loan process. He was very patient with me and my family. He understands the needs of his customers. He was clear in his directions and helped us collect any information that we needed. I would recommend him to other members of my family.

I was referred to Greg through our real estate attorney. He worked with us through the process and exceeded all expectations. Our mothers home was paid off for many years and we had issues with her title. Greg worked tirelessly (we think) to clear up any discrepancies. Now we won't have any issues later when we have to do something again with the asset. We have my mother set financially and now we are "worry free". Greg is #1!!

Greg did first RM. Excellent work. Just did a Re-Fi. Same great service and persistence. If only he was doing the appraisals. If so I'd be wearing a new watch. He's the bomb. Booyeh.

Greg Laks refinanced our reverse mortgage he provided to us for the 3rd time. All were completed satisfactory. We trust Greg has our best interest at heart and would never go to anyone else for our retirement needs. Each time he has exceeded expectations.! Thanks so much Greg!

Greg Laks completed our refinance of our existing reverse mortgage. My mother needed additional fund access to allow her to receive the care she's been receiving for years. This second "go around" really helps the family. I don't trust anyone else with these matters more than Greg Laks. He is the consummate professional throughout every step of the process. We just simply trust what he explains and he even helped us identify areas of her home that needed attention prior to the appraiser coming over. This made a difference to our end result. Can't thank you enough!

Greg Laks completed my refinance of my reverse mortgage. He initially completed the original reverse mortgage while at MetLife years ago. He helped me get my property up to a maximum appraised value which allowed us to take advantage of the current interest rate protections and add to my line of credit. There is no one better than Greg when it comes to this financial tool! thanks for all your help and happy to recommend to anyone I see fit as usual!

Greg Laks refinanced my existing reverse mortgage. This is my second time coming to Greg for his expertise. I wouldn't see it any other way as he has been instrumental for me throughout the process. Please see Greg if you plan on taking on a HECM. Thanks again, Greg!

Occasionally you have the opportunity to work with a real pro, one who's service and support are great examples of a client first mentality, that is Greg Laks. Greg was with us every step of the way form our initial discussion to funding. If you are considering a reverse mortgage there is not anyone I wold recommend higher than Greg.

Greg saw us through some very difficult and seemingly unending issues in order to complete the Reverse Mortgage. All the while he remained patient and professional. He had faith all along and was very encouraging.

Greg is not only a good business person who knows what he's talking about, he is also an all-around nice person.

Whew Greg, we finally made it! Thanks very much!

Greg helped us obtain a reverse mortgage. We were referred to him through our planner who we have trusted throughout the years. He handled the transaction very smoothly it seemed. We never felt out of touch and he handled some complexity with our living trust. We have had our home paid off for years and took advantage of a line of credit. We recommend Greg to help with your retirement. Thanks Greg !

My husband and I were very skeptical heading into this reverse mortgage process. Greg Laks took care of all of our concerns and we are happy with the outcome. He educated us on all the beneficial changes these past several years and we feel completely safe. We own many rental properties and it's comforting knowing our mortgage payments are now a thing of the past. Our final numbers were MUCH better than expected and we now have a line of credit that GROWS for future use. A BIG THANK YOU!

Greg Laks exceeded my expectations and I 100% recommend him. I was skeptical entering into a reverse mortgage but now that my loan has been completed I am now an advocate.

Greg Laks has been one of the best, if not the best professional in the mortgage business that I have done business with - and I have done this kind of business with many others previously. I truly believe Greg knows his business very well - he answered all my questions and concerns very well - and without any doubt in my mind, I trusted all his recommendations. I can recommend Greg to anyone looking for this kind of service.
