Eagle Glen in Corona Flies the Flag for Memorial Day. - 05/30/11 09:03 PM
Went for a walk this weekend around the Eagle Glen neighborhood here in Corona. Saw lots of flags flying. Nice to see my neighborhood displaying their patriotism and honoring our soldiers sacrifice.
I really enjoyed working with this young retiree and her family! Ms. B bought her home with cash after she retired in 2003 and has been enjoying her adult children, her granchildren, gardening and some travelling. She keeps very active. With the economy getting out of control over the last four years, she has seen her savings dwindle and the return on her CD’s has gotten lower and lower as interest rates have fallen. Finally in November of last year she realized she would not be able to make her property tax payment and so she began to look into (1 comments)
Loan Officers - Do You Attend Your Loan Closings? - 05/26/11 12:14 AM
Tonight I attended one of my loan closings. My "regular" notary, Kathy, was not available so another notary was there, recommended by my escrow officer. During the signing the notary said, "I've been doing this for 6 years and I hardly ever have a loan officer attend the closing. It's great that you are here!" I don't get that! Signing loan documents is a fairly scary thing for most borrowers and you can imagine it is even more so with my clientele, older borrowers taking out FHA/HECM Reverse Mortgages. I know I'm a "Pollyanna", but it's important to (0 comments)

Children find trees irrestistible. In our local Eagle Glen Park, the trees have finally grown big enough to be a fun challenge. Once one boy starts to climb the others can't resist. I just had to capture this tree full of boys on one of my walks.
Angel On Her Shoulder. - 05/13/11 11:02 PM
Today was such a great day! Pricing on HECM reverse mortgages has come down and with it the funds available to senior homeowners has gone up. I called one of my clients who has been unsure of whether or not she should complete her reverse mortgage loan, (She should) but with the old pricing she would have had to bring in $600 to get the reverse or take the more expensive "HECM Standard" loan which she did not want. So, she's been putting off the decision to move ahead. At the new pricing she can use the HECM Saver, and get (3 comments)

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall - 05/08/11 12:54 AM
People say I’m just like my mom. The truth of the matter is that it's all her fault. (I only wish I was half the woman she is.) Growing up as the eldest child of seven I observed and absorbed my mother’s life. It seemed like nothing fazed her. Once on our way to the emergency room with my little brother we were running out of gas and she had no money. She asked the gas station attendant if she could fill up and pay him later and would leave him her diamond ring as collateral. She never once complained about (5 comments)
