Today we’ll discuss: What is a reverse mortgage? How can it help you manage your most precious asset? And, how did Mary Jo find herself in this amazing career of helping so many people?

Mary Jo explains: “I am excited to share with our audience the practicalities of getting a reverse mortgage, the real-life considerations that individuals and couples need to make when deciding to get one, the challenges they may face, and the psychological hurdles that many have to overcome to make a good decision as to whether or not to get one.”

She was chosen to train Private Bankers and Wealth Management Advisors on the most effective ways to employ this repayment-deferred line of credit as a retirement planning and cash-flow management tool to create more sustainable income throughout retirement.

Well-known as a trusted resource for retirees, Mary Jo has taught HECM concepts to real estate finance students at the College of San Mateo and those seeking their SRES designation. She has participated in panel discussions and delivered hundreds of seminars and talks to groups ranging from the Retired Firemen’s Association, Kaiser Permanente, Rotary Club, CPA Discussion Groups, CalCPA, SILVAR, SAMCAR, FPA, MAR, NorBAR, NAPFA, PFAC, Marin County Bar Association and many more. She enjoys educating and working with mature homeowners, their families, and trusted advisors to secure long-term sustainable retirement solutions.

Originally from Houston, Texas, Mary Jo has made the West Coast her home for over three decades.
