New Resource Available for Phoenix Area Seniors in Reverse Mortgages
The need for educated professionals able to cater to the unique health, social and financial needs of seniors grows as the Baby Boomers reach retirement age, and improvements in healthcare allow people to live longer. Certified Senior Advisors have received a unique education and training that compliments their professional skills to better serve the growing senior demographic.
Phoenix area seniors now have a new resource to assist them in the aging process. Craig Gallegos, CSA®, with Fairway Independent Mortgage, recently completed a comprehensive course through the Society of Certified Senior Advisors® (SCSA) and has earned the certification of Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®. The CSA designation in conjunction with 11 years of experience in mortgage and 20 years as a Financial Planner means that seniors and their families now have a resource they can rely on to meet their Reverse Mortgage needs.
“Working with seniors is deeply rewarding for me and earning the CSA will help make a real difference in their lives. By understanding their unique needs and challenge, I am now better equipped to help them navigate complex issues and make informed decisions that will absolutely improve their quality of life,” according to Craig Gallegos, CSA.
There is an explosive growth in the senior population. People are living longer, which means the need for skilled professionals able to serve the senior population is also growing. This demographic shift requires an educated response in how professionals work with seniors and a greater ability to address the challenges and opportunities seniors face. “Every day 10,000 people in America are turning 62 and 40% are still paying for a mortgage. In my opinion, it’s better to make memories and not mortgage payments,” Craig Gallegos, CSA.
As a Certified Senior Advisor, Craig Gallegos has received the education and training to better serve senior clients. He is also required to participate in continuing education to ensure he is well educated on the changes and updates that affect the Reverse Mortgage industry.
