Here’s What People Say About Marc:


Marc did a great job getting me qualified so I could use a reverse mortgage to buy my retirement home. He overcame many financial obstacles on my behalf and succeeded where others would have failed. I actually came to think of him as a loyal friend.

– Gloria L, Tucson, AZ

Marc came to my rescue. He structured the Jumbo HECM loan so I was able to set aside $300,000 towards monthly income.
He made sure my appraisal came in at full value. Now I will be able to stay here for the rest of my life. He is the best at what he does. Call him!

– David H, Beverly Hills, CA

It took Marc a lot of time to make our loan work. My husband is disabled so it was all on me. He helped me to put the paperwork together and worked very hard.
He made me feel safe. Marc cares about people and has made our lives better. Now we don’t have to worry about bills and can enjoy life again, which, for me, is painting and travel.

– Gigi & Sam R, Camarillo, CA

Marc did a financial analysis for me and showed me how I was going to run out of money in 6 months. He was honest and he structured a reverse mortgage for me that not only cleaned up my bills, but fixed up my house and gave me time to sell my business. Today I am debt free, my stress is down and my health and quality of life is better thanks to him.

– Paul Z, Lake Arrowhead, CA

Marc did a great job for us. He really helped us to organize our paperwork so that that we could qualify for a reverse mortgage. He also helped us to find a contractor to fix our roof. Few financial planners would have had the patience that he does. He is a great guy to have on your side. You can feel safe with him.

– Doug & Mary D, Saratoga, CA

Marc helped me to solve a legal problem so I wouldn’t loose my home. Because I am 92, it took time to get everything together. But he was patient and we got all the papers he needed to get the reverse mortgage approved. You’ll be safe and secure working with him.

– Gerda S, Los Angeles, CA

I never expected to be going through a divorce in my 60’s, but I did. Our home was free and clear and I wanted to keep it but my wife wanted her 50%. Marc helped me to qualify for a reverse mortgage so that I could pay her off and remain in the house with my sons. He was very sensitive to my needs and even came to court to testify.

– Ancelot F, Cerritos, CA

Marc got me a reverse mortgage on my mobile home. My taxes are paid, my bills are paid off, I have a car that is reliable and money in the bank. He did a great job and he is a nice guy.

– Johnny P. Camarillo
