"Rick is head and shoulders above all the mortgage brokers I had previously used: honest, smart, diligent and no surprises. I've done at least a dozen transactions with Rick over a 17 year period and have been 100% satisfied. I recommend Rick Southern highly."

"Before I did my reverse mortgage I was always under stress just trying to make ends meet. The golden years were not so golden for me. One day I received an invitation to a luncheon called the Truth About Reverse Mortgages. Jon Silvester of Anchor Funding explained the reverse mortgage program in language easy to understand. A few days later I decided to go ahead with a reverse mortgage. I paid off my existing mortgage, all my credit cards, made some needed repairs to my home, and for the first time in a long time have a decent reserve in the bank. And I was able to take a vacation for the first time in years. But the very best part is no financial worries and I have peace of mind."

"After attending a Reverse Mortgage seminar by Anchor Funding I met with Jon Silvester and decided to do the Reverse loan. I paid off my first and second loans, made needed repairs to my swimming pool, spruced up my back yard, and helped my daughter and granddaughter buy a 3 bedroom 3 bath townhouse. Helping my kids now when they need it and while I'm still alive to see them enjoy their new home is wonderful. Besides, now I have my own bedroom and bathroom when I go to visit and I still have a nice rainy day fund. Jon was very good to work with. His knowledge and experience really showed and He made the process very smooth --no surprises."

"My wife and I have known Jon Silvester for more than 40 years. Over the years he has been our go to guy for anything real estate related and has done many loans for us, always making sure we got a good deal. A couple years ago we called him to talk about a refinance and he suggested we consider a reverse mortgage. Since we are well past 70 there was little likely hood of ever paying off the home. Why continue to make a mortgage payment when we could live here for the rest of our lives without making a payment. With a regular mortgage we would be paying down the principle but that would be for our heirs benefit, not ours. My wife and I have done plenty to help our kids and grand kids so at this stage of life we want to make things as comfortable and easy for ourselves as possible. Not having a house payment give us more to spend each month. We decided to do the reverse mortgage and it sure has been nice for the first time in our adult lives not having a rent or house payment to make. Great suggestion, Jon!"
