I am a Sr mortgage advisor with over 30 years experience in the business. Through the years I have relied on Neil to take care of my own clients when a reverse mortgage is the best option for them. When I decided the time was right for my husband and I to obtain one, I naturally went to the best in the business. That is Neil. I am pretty familiar with the benefits and criteria of Reverse mortgages having worked with Neil for my own clients, so I can tell you he is thorough and will spend whatever time you need answering questions and trying to get you to the best place for you as an individual. These loans are insured by the federal government and must meet high standards. There is nothing questionable about Reverse loans if you use a company that deals with FHA insured loans. The most important thing is to have someone like Neil to guide you through the options and the rather intense paper process. I just cannot recommend anyone better. Neil and his assistant Pam are the team you want on your side should this be the best option for you financially. I am still a working Sr. Mortgage advisor, with a different company, and Neil will remain my source for these loans.

As a retired couple who still work part-time, we were interested in either a traditional refinance or a reverse mortgage. Neil was very thorough as he reviewed both options with us and clearly answered our questions, both at the initial meeting and later as we were making our decision. The reverse mortgage turned out to be a better fit for our financial goals. The subsequent appraisal of our house resulted in several items that required rather difficult repairs, and Neil was very supportive as we worked through the repairs. When the closing was scheduled, Neil made sure all our required paperwork was in order, and the settlement meeting with the Title Company was completed with no complications. We would definitely recommend Neil to anyone who was considering a home purchase or refinance for an informative, trouble-free and pleasant experience.

Neil is meticulous in making sure every detail is covered. He explained everything in clear language,making sure I understood every aspect of the transaction. He then followed through with an email or phone call to be sure I did my part. I cannot recommend his service more highly.

Hi,

I worked with Mr. Sweren on a reverse mortgage and he was the best. His entire team was professional, up front with the process and very knowledgeable of this product. During the entire process he was available for any questions that I had and communicated with me every step of the way. His team that works with him was amazing and kind. This experience was great and didn't take too long from beginning to finish. I was very happy and I will recommend his services to all. This company is a winner and excellent at what they do and Mr. Sweren is the best.

They provided very good customer service—were accessible, responded promptly with assistance whenever we had questions or issues arose, prepared us for each step, and were very helpful, accommodating, and pleasant to deal with. Very positive experience!

After doing extensive research into reverse mortgages, and speaking with numerous loan brokers, I knew as soon as I spoke with Neil that he not only knew his product, he was also great in following up. As a retired real estate agent, I had questions, and he was forthright and honest with his answers. If you are looking for someone to walk you through this loan process effortlessly, I highly recommend Neil Sweren. You will not be disappointed.

I have to say, if it was not for Neil our deal would have fallen apart. It was solely because the first lender did not do his due diligence and completely dropped the ball. Neal picked it up and ran with it. He pulled it out of the park! We closed right away after another lender was saying it would not close. Neal literally saved the day. Plus, he was so easy to work with. Neal stayed on top of everything, he's amazing. He was so responsive. I never had to wait for information or a call back, the communication was unbelievable. The service is second to none. I can't say enough about how great Neal handled the whole deal. He is not just a great lender, he really is a caring person. I refer everyone I can to him. I was very impressed and so happy I found him.

Neil developed a strategy using reverse mortgage to enable us to begin construction on our new home before the sale of our current home. At first not sold on the reverse mortgage idea, Neil explained the advantages while also describing the couple of issues we needed to attend to. He was patient in dealing with a couple who hadn't done anything like this in years. We highly recommend Neil of you want to consider a reverse mortgage.

Yes, we would highly recommend Neil. We had a great experience with him.
After we got the run around from another lender, with no reason, a friend recommended Neil.
We were late with the closing of our property because of issues beyond our control.
The mortgage processing with Neil went extremely smoothly, we provided all required documentation and it took maybe two weeks to complete everything.
He was on top of everything, constantly checking and reassuring us.
Just a great experience and he is also a very nice person. We met him at his office.

Neil was a not just professional, but also personable and friendly throughout the entire process. He was quite knowledgeable and could give us straightforward answers and information in,general. This allowed us to make informed decisions and feel comfortable that we were making the best decisions for us. Neil was also very good about keeping in touch or responding to our questions, even though we had a particularly long time to wait to close on our home.
We feel that Neil and his staffer Pam, were honest and clear on all matters related to our loan, and lastly, they were always efficient and one step ahead of the game to assur that everything went smoothly and worked according to plan !

Neil helped us with a reverse mortgage for my mom. This was the second mortgage company I tried and he was much more helpful than the first. If I had any questions he was very quick to respond.

We just finished signing for our reverse mortgage yesterday, Jan 9, 2017. Neil has been with us all the way. First, by traveling to Manassas to meet with us, explain everything in detail. But, of course as seniors, we still had questions. Didn't matter how small and trivial they were, he would email the answer within a few minutes. Really appreciated emails that I could print out and refer back to.

The appraiser was good and patient with us. Even gave us some improvement tips. Melissa showed up with what seemed like a thousand papers for closing. She is a very lovely person. Signed papers, had a nice visit with her.

Will be sure to recommend you to any one who asks. I cannot think of anything that would have made the experience any better. Thank all of you, The Scotts

Very friendly and responsive. Only minor quibble: he assumed some knowledge in me about a detail that I did not have. So make sure u understand and if not ask questions until it is clear you do. But I recommend Neil pretty highly overall.

Neil did not make feel like the questions I had about the reverse mortgage process were silly. I was always comfortable and never hesitated to call or email him. His professionalism, extensive knowledge & down to earth personality never made me second -guess my decision to deal with him.
