Cooper will focus on building partnerships with the builder and realtor communities

Melville, N.Y., April 2, 2014 — Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC announced today that it has hired Robert Cooper as its Director of Strategic Partners. Cooper will be responsible for building strategic relationships and partnerships with the builder and realtor communities.

“For more than 11 years, Rob has been working in the reverse mortgage industry, managing accounts throughout the mid-Atlantic,” said David Peskin, president, Reverse Mortgage Funding. “His strong experience adds another accomplished leader to our team, and we’re happy he is joining us. His role at Reverse Mortgage Funding will be important; builders and realtors are important audiences. We believe the HECM for Purchase product will become a very important product for seniors over the next few years as traditional mortgages become more challenging to obtain. Rob’s focus purely on Builders and Realtors is an important step for RMF, and we are excited to have him as part of the team.”

Prior to joining Reverse Mortgage Funding, Cooper served as Vice President of the mid- Atlantic region for Security One Lending.

A More Flexible Home Equity Loan

If you’re 62 or older, there is a home equity line of credit option that offers greater financial flexibility than a traditional Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). It’s called a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) line of credit. 
If you have an existing mortgage or home equity loan you could refinance them with a HECM line of credit and get enhanced benefits, including a flexible payment feature and a line of credit that GROWS when left untouched.
As with any mortgage, you must meet your loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, and keeping your home in good condition.
