My wife and I couldn't imagine working with anyone else. Our financial planner set us up with Greg. He was fantastic throughout the process and very honest and up front. We believe we are better now with the reverse loan than without it.
We recommend Greg Laks if you are thinking about a reverse loan.

I have sent Greg several clients over the past year and happy I’ve done so. He’s honest and tells it like it is. Greg takes the time to educate before any process begins making certain all is understood. I couldn’t imagine working with another referral partner other than Greg. Keep up the fantastic work!

Greg handled a reverse mortgage for me expertly. I had recently lost my husband and there were several problems that Greg handled for me. I would recommend Greg to anyone who needs a reverse mortgage.
The whole process took less than a month without any problems. He said when it would be done and it was.
Thank You Greg

Greg Laks was absolutely pitch perfect. I always had negative feelings towards reverse loans, but after Greg educated me I felt safe.
Thank you for everything, Open Mortgage!

I am very pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Greg. Greg was recommended to me by my son who is in the financial services business and has known Greg for some time. He recommended Greg because of his professionalism, knowledge, integrity, timelessness with the loan process.

I must say my son was correct in every way. It was truly a pleasure to work with Greg in every way. The loan was completed accurately, timely and every detail spelled out for easy understanding.

To conclude I would like to restate my strong recommendation for Greg.

Greg Laks stood by us through the fires in Los Angeles and saw our jumbo reverse mortgage close. He never wavered and his communication was stellar. Always keeping us abreast and thinking ahead. We went into this very cautiously and could imagine working with anyone else. Both appraisals on our Brentwood property went smoothly and our final closing was almost exact as our original application. Awesome 👏 job Greg!!!

Greg started our education process in early 2019 and stayed with us all the way through close in November of 2019. It was advantageous to us that he had access to most private reverse mortgage loans in the end. He is ultra communicative and this was only one of many reasons that swayed us in his direction. I was able to refinance my jumbo reverse mortgage and lower my rate 1.375% and pull cash out to remodel my kitchen and bathroom! Thanks Greg

My partner and I are glad to have met Greg Laks. We hadn’t heard anything great about reverse mortgages and Greg was able to educate us properly. We uncovered untruths and could not be happier without choice. I wholly recommend Greg when seeking this loan tool. Appreciate your efforts!

We had a complicated reverse mortgage situation with multiple owners, and two trusts involved. Greg navigated us through the process, even allowing me to deal
directly with the escrow person and providing me with drafts of all the important documents to insure they accurately satisfied our requirements. I had started working with two other mortgage companies before Open Mortgage and had reached an impasse in both cases. With Greg, the process proceeded along well, even despite the glitches that inevitably arise in a situation of this complexity. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking to obtain a reverse mortgage.

Lucky to have found Greg. My home was in disrepair and Greg located a professional to handle deferred maintenance on my home to ready for the appraisal. All of my numbers were better than what we expected. My monthly payment was raised, line of credit amount raised and my interest rate was lowered by 2.5%. Over the next 10 years I should keep $150,000 of home equity within my home. Outstanding work!!!

Greg completed my refinance of my reverse mortgage. We lowered my rate’s accrual by 2.75% and raised my minimum monthly payments. Him and his team helped reshape my property prior to the home appraisal. He recommended painters who repaired my home so it would meet requirements.
I thank you for the 3rd time, Greg!

Greg Laks is simply the best! He contacted me at the prefect time and enhanced my current reverse mortgage. My rate was lowered over 2.5% which will help me keep and own much more of my home. Open Mortgage added you my line of credit and almost doubled the availability. I would have never known and wounding have taken advantage unless he contacted me and explained. Appreciate all your hard work, Greg!

Greg Laks completed the impossible it seemed! I started this process in March of 2019 with the largest reverse company nationwide. My reverse was denied and I was stuck. Greg transferred the loan to his company and we received a satisfactory appraisal. We waited at his advice until market conditions corrected and we closed my loan. I am forever grateful to Greg and his team behind him. We got through hurdle after hurdle and he never wavered or gave up on me. I will recommend Greg to anyone seeking retirement advice bc this is the type of person you need access too! Love u Greg

Greg Laks did a superb job in helping me take advantage of these low rates.
I was able to lower my rate almost 2 percentage points and raise my existing line of credit substantially. He showed my husband and I the overall savings. It all made sense and helped us keep more equity! Thanks for notifying us and exceeding expectations!

When I decided to do a Reverse Mortgage, I choose Mr. Greg Laks. He was not disappointing like the ones before him. He explained everything to me, never late, and always returned your call, even if he was out of town. I have recommended him to several of my friends.

Thank you Mr. Greg Laks

Greg Laks took me though every step of a complicated loan process and never once gave up and because of that, I refer to him as a "puppy with a bone". He worked so very hard to get me what I needed and never gave up not even when others had.
I now feel a greater sense of security in my life and will always credit his honesty and sincerity for that and for this reason, Greg Laks has my highest recommendations.

We began our reverse mortgage investigation over 1 year ago. My brother was referred to Greg Laks regarding my jumbo reverse loan a couple months ago. He certainly stood out among the several companies we spoke with. My home needed two appraisals due to the value being over 3M dollars and they both were very close to one another. In the end I have added to savings, my home is repaired, the loan was no cost and my overall rate of interest was lowered. Win Win Win. Glad to have met Greg Laks and his team at Open Mortgage. Thank you again!

My sister worked with Greg Laks and our family is very grateful to have found him. He communicated well and helped us narrow down our options. We spoke with 3 different companies prior to meeting Greg and after our first conversation we knew that he knew his stuff. All worked out and everything was finalized in a timely manner. We had several issues arise throughout the process and he handled all of them and went out of his way. We wholly recommend Greg and Open Mortgage for anyone looking into a reverse loan option. Stellar work all around!

If you are a senior citizen contemplating applying for a reverse mortgage and you need help with the process, there is no one better to assist you than Greg Laks. Greg was one of several agents who contacted me about a reverse mortgage and I was lucky to have selected him. I will always be most grateful for the help he gave me negotiating a jumbo reverse mortgage on my house in Pasadena. He took care of everything, from securing a favorable appraisal to overseeing minor repairs before the appraisal, to guiding me through the mountain of paper work involved in the application. Everything worked out great and I cannot thank him enough. He is the best !

Greg Laks handled my sisters jumbo reverse mortgage. Throughout the process he kept us well informed. During the process we had a hiccup that Greg was able to circumvent. We shopped around in the beginning and glad we found him. We could not imagine proceeding with anyone else and will gladly refer anyone we notice looking for the reverse loan.

We are extremely grateful to have met Greg Laks. My mother, who is elderly, had a very complex scenario and multi million dollar property. This was her largest asset and it was handled with confidence, care, passion. We believed that Greg would have treated his own family the same way. Thank you again Greg!

I had a difficult decision to make . The whole process from A-Z was thoroughly explained. All questions were answered , most often before they were even asked.
I would gladly recommend Greg to my clients, friends or family.
