Longbridge Financial, LLC is a cutting-edge financial institution devoted to responsibly advising senior homeowners in improving their retirement finances through education about Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM) — and helping them unlock the power of their home.
We can assist you in using your home equity to manage the financial strains that impact many Washington seniors who are in, or preparing for, retirement. Started by an Ivy League professor and a group of experienced professionals from leading financial services companies, Longbridge's mission is to fundamentally enhance the reverse mortgage industry through unparalleled customer service, expertise, and transparency.
Why work with Longbridge Financial?
We’re a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) approved lender:
Our loan program is overseen by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
We maintain an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
We’re a proud member of the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA) and completely adhere to its Code of Ethics. Not every lender is able to make that claim.
What separates Longbridge Financial from other lenders?
Longbridge is committed to suggesting our HECM program only once we are sure our program is right for you and meets your needs. We will get to know you, your objectives, your home, and your financial situation as we review your available options. You can be sure that if we ever determine that a reverse mortgage is NOT your best option, WE WILL TELL YOU SO. Not every lender will make that pledge.
Our certified Loan Officers are experts in the industry. Your phone call will always be answered by a real, live person who can assist you with your HECM loan. You will receive dependable, professional, and personal guidance through each step of the process.
