We started our research on a reverse mortgage more than 2 years prior to actually sitting down with Wayne to get into the details. And, when Wayne came into the picture we knew immediately that he and Premier lending was the best and only choice for us from all the others. We learned some things along the way but in the end it was Wayne that explained the transaction in a manner that allowed us to wrap our brains around the “reverse” mortgage concept. Other lenders politely rejected our request for a home visit to discuss this big step citing the loan could “easily be done via the phone and fax”. Not for us. Wayne was willing to travel a great distance to our home multiple times to sit down with us and answer any and all concerns we had. He kept us up to date on changes within the government loan requirements and timetables. He answered or returned all phone calls even on the week end. His instinct that we needed a little hand holding…okay, a lot!...during the process was evident in his friendly demeanor and complete knowledge of the loan process. We found that not all lenders/brokers are equal in knowledge of the product they offer, and certainly not in their origination/broker fees. Fees being a big concern! We would advise anyone considering the reverse mortgage to give Wayne at Premier lending a call and save time and anxiety over finding the right person to take you through this process. Once completed, you'll wonder why you waited! We can now take a deep breath and enjoy our retirement!

If we could give WAYNE SLATER six stars we'd gladly do so! He not only gave us an absolutely fantastic deal on our reverse mortgage (the best our reverse-mortgage counselor had seen in his 20+ years of counseling) but he went WAY, WAY beyond in getting the deal done. He worked with us all the way-- even when a major problem came up (on our side) and found a way to make it all happen WITHOUT losing the great deal he had originally offered. The only thing Wayne REFUSED to do was to act unethically in any way-- which suited us just fine! Are you getting the idea that we are absolutely delighted with Wayne Slater and recommend him as highly as we possibly can? We sure hope you are-- because Wayne is the best! If you are considering a reverse mortgage at all you would be an absolute fool not to call Wayne and let him have a chance to prove himself. Thanks Wayne, we truly appreciate it!
Essex Mortgage is a great place to work and to get a home loan! Since I started working with Essex I've found the leaders to not only care about growing a great business, but growing the employees! They listen to individual suggestions and take action when it makes good sense. The loan officers look out for the best interest of their clients, sometimes suggesting that they buy a less expensive home so that they won't feel the need to reduce the kids' soccer/dance/extra activities once they are in their home. Truly great people - looking out for truly great clients!
