Shelley Giordano's Retirement Expertise

View a Sample Presentation

Shelley strives for the right of the American retiree to have access to accurate information on how reverse mortgage lending works, and how much it costs. Her years in the industry have proven that product innovation is not necessarily in the best long-term interests of the consumer or the taxpayer. Because the US Government is the ultimate backstop for the HECM, she does not support product innovation at the expense of the taxpayer. Most importantly, Shelley is devoted to helping retirees, especially Baby Boomers, understand that housing wealth may contribute to a financially secure retirement.
