I have been a licensed Real Estate Salesperson and Loan Officer for 40 years and have been specializing in reverse loans for the last 17. I found the program to be very compelling and important to determine the quality of life for a senior and for retirement planning.

I'm involved in a number of organizations that represent seniors and also focus groups within the local communities of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, CA.

By meeting other professionals in different fields that offer services to the senior community, I feel more informed. And having these contacts helps me to direct my clients and their families to services that they might need and not know how to locate.

Estate Planning and Elder Law attorneys utilize my knowledge and experience for their older clients or the adult children and their senior parents to maximize retirement funds by using money from a Reverse loan for caregiving or unplanned medical expenses.

And I also coordinate financial concerns and retirement planning with Financial Advisors by providing them with examples of how they can extend the longevity of a retirement fund beyond the traditional method and or timeline of a retirement plan for their clients.

Banks and Credit Unions do not offer Reverse loans and I have partnered with some of them as a trusted resource for information for their clients/members when they are asking about a Reverse loan.

Lastly, I also assist Realtors with their senior clients who may wish to sell their current residence and downsize into one that is smaller; by using a Purchase Money Reverse loan in lieu of traditional financing.

I have been a guest speaker for APS in Ventura County, CA, a public radio station in Ventura (KVTA), a past Board Member of the Ventura County Adult Abuse Prevention Council & a guest speaker for the L.A. Caregivers Assoc. and various civic organizations.

I meet all my clients in their homes, throughout Central and Southern California for free consultations.

I have known Lorraine jones for approximately ten years. During that
time she has guided and supported
me through three different types of
reverse mortgages. She is very knowlgeable, capable and does her
best to help.

I can definitely recommend her.

My brother-in-law and his wife referred me to Lorraine to learn more about reverse loans because I was concerned about my personal finances lasting for the rest of my life since I was now a widow.

She had previously helped them with his Mom when she did her reverse loan and they were very happy with how it helped her and took the financial burden off of them for her care.

We started my application in November and other than a brief disruption during the Woolsey fire, we completed my loan in December and I am very happy with how Lorraine thoroughly described how the loan works and what were my options.

Her warmth and expertise shown through the entire time and I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone that is thinking about doing a reverse loan.

I have had the great pleasure to work with Lorraine Jones over the past 1 1/2 years and aside from being the most knowledgeable in Reverse Mortgages she has proven to be over and over one of the most thoughtful and caring persons and lender that I had the opportunity to work with. We recently worked together representing a handicapped woman where I was to sell her existing property and Lorraine was arranging a new Reverse Mortgage to purchase her new condominium. That new loan went through easily and quickly because of Lorraine and her highly skilled support team. It became apparent to me from the start that the most important person in that transaction was the buyer and what she could do to insure her that she was always looking out for her and to make sure everyone was doing the right thing and to close on time. Thank you Lorraine!

If a senior lives in California their home value might be higher than the rest of the nation and that means they have more equity.

Lorraine was extraordinary through an 'extraordinary' loan process. She was patient, diligent, professional and kind. I think there is often a backstory with RMs and we had one for sure. I can't say enough about how Lorraine helped us through a difficult time as a large family. As a real estate professional of over 30 years, I recommend Lorraine without hesitation. She is the best!

Buying a Home

Many seniors are thinking of purchasing a home using a Reverse mortgage.
Sep 10, 2018
My husband died unexpectedly, leaving me with only his Social Security and a small pension to live on and it was very difficult for me to manage the on going expenses of my home, but I didn't want to sell it.

I was referred to Lorraine by a mutual friend and she patiently and thoroughly explained how a reverse loan could possibly benefit me and help me to remain in my home, while giving me extra funds for financial security.

I went forward with the loan and I have no regrets about doing it and I'm so happy to feel secure once again.

Several years ago my brother and I were financially helping our Mom out with her expenses for "live-in" caregivers and we were feeling the difficulty of keeping up with this expense every month.

I had known Lorraine Jones for several years, when she was a traditional Loan Officer and she helped me, plus my daughter with mortgage financing.

I knew I could count on her to help us out with our Mom and we ended up doing a reverse loan and had enough money to pay for her expenses and take the pressure off of us.

We were really grateful to have this an an option to help our Mom during a difficult time in all of our lives.

Many years ago you helped my Aunt Sylvia Kimmelman with a reverse loan as she was unable to keep up with her monthly payments and had used up her credit cards.

This loan made a very positive difference in her life and she felt very relieved that her financial problems were solved and as you know, she has since passed away.

Thank you so much for your help and professionalism.
