We have had several interactions with Laurie which have all been fantastic. In addition to her vast knowledge, she has a gift for explaining any topic, and not moving on until we have complete understanding.

Laurie is always prompt for appointments, as well as when returning phone calls, texts or emails. When talking to Laurie, I never feel rushed.

I have recommended Laurie to friends, and will continue to do so!

Laurie has been helping to educate the Virginia legal community about the benefits of reverse mortgages for many years. She has always made herself available to answer questions on reverse mortgages whether she is involved in them or not. She recently helped me walk through the process of obtaining a reverse mortgage for an elderly incapacitated client who is now able to stay in her home hopefully for the remainder of her life with the care that she needs. I am truly grateful for all of her assistance and guidance.

Imagine you’re in a situation where you’re thinking about looking into a reverse mortgage to help an elderly parent with financial needs. And you really have no idea about the details regarding that strange animal called a “reverse mortgage.” And you don’t even really know where to begin. And you have a time constraint. Oh…and you’re petrified.
That was me about a year ago. I have had no prior experience with real estate at all. But a very well-regarded mortgage banker friend of mine recommended Laurie MacNaughton, a reverse mortgage specialist, and assured me that she was fantastic. I can assure you, “fantastic” does not do her justice.
We had our mom’s reverse mortgage put into place about a year ago. Laurie made the whole process go swiftly and smoothly. She met with us in person and guided us through every step of the procedure. I had many questions and Laurie answered them all without my feeling naive; no question was too basic. She is approachable and seems to always be available for a phone call. She won’t rush you or make you feel you’re infringing on her schedule. And now that it’s time for us to repay the loan, Laurie was the first person I contacted for guidance to put that process into motion.
I cannot imagine going through the reverse mortgage process without Laurie. In my opinion, “fantastic” is really “indispensable. “

She brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the process such that it proceeded smoothly and expeditiously, and the front-end costs were clearly explained. The fact that there were no surprises during the process only confirmed her expertise in providing these services

Laurie is quite simply the best of the best when it comes to helping clients understand reverse mortgages. I have watched her teach in front of groups, referred clients to her, and met her on projects that had to be renovated before they could be financed, and am always impressed with the care and consideration she gives all her clients. If you have a friend, family member or client who would benefit from a Reverse Mortgage, you cannot do better than to meet with Laurie.

I have had several opportunities to refer clients to Laurie when I thought a reverse mortgage made sense for their financial situation. Her expertise with the system and the product always resulted in the best solution for the client. She provides a great explanation of a sometimes confusing solution, and always helps clients understand how that solution may be best for their circumstance. I have great confidence that if Laurie concludes that a reverse mortgage is not the best solution, she will say so. She is professional, knowledgeable, and caring of every client.

Laurie is phenomenal. She knows more about reverse mortgages than anyone I have met. She routinely works with Realtors, accountants, CPAs, homeowner associations, and title companies, explaining reverse mortgages. She is very aware of the personal circumstances where a reverse mortgage may be beneficial. Most of all, she is very sensitive to seniors and their families as to the details and impacts of the reverse mortgages. When considering a reverse mortgage for yourself, a loved one, or a client, call Laurie.
