We know that a reverse mortgage is a BIG decision and you want to make sure you have all the information required to make an informed decision regarding a reverse mortgage. That's why each of our counselors have over 10 years experience with Reverse Mortgages. Our counselors are passionate about helping seniors and bring this enthusiasm into the counseling session.
In the past, borrowers that needed certification for Reverse Mortgages had to call a list of agencies, find out the price and check availability. NFDM has brought that process into the 21 century by allowing the potential borrower to set the appointment online and pay for their Reverse Mortgage Certification in one easy transaction available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
