At Change is Good, we are dedicated to making the moving process simple and easy. This not only includes providing move management for senior citizens, it means partnering with some of the leading service-providers in our area.
One of the people we love working with is Sharon Johnson, a reverse mortgage specialist who understands how to help seniors obtain the financial stability they need for the future.
Providing Long-Term Peace of Mind
Sharon Johnson is committed to providing flexible reverse mortgages to seniors who need extra income to supplement retirement or social security payments. She works with seniors and their families, listening to needs and providing specific advice based on an individual’s unique situation.
Located in Fargo, Sharon and her partner Brenda Houglum have over 20 years of combined experience and provide reverse mortgage services all across the upper midwest. This includes South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, and, of course, little our corner of Minnesota and North Dakota.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of working with Sharon is her knowledge for the industry. There is a wide, sometimes staggering, variety of reverse mortgage options, but she can provide information on the available choices, from lump-sum payments to monthly options, and she can do it all in a clear, relatable manner.
According to Sharon, reverse mortgages are often utilized by people who want to stay in their current house. For example, if you need extra income to help make home payments, a reverse mortgage allows you to take advantage of the equity that you have generated throughout the years. This could be the deciding factor for staying in your home.
While her reverse mortgages are often used by people who need added income and want to stay in their own home, they are also utilized by people who need money for moving, downsizing, or finding a more comfortable location, such as a condo or senior-care facility.
It’s important to note that when you work with Sharon for a reverse mortgage, you retain the title to the house. In other words, you still own your home! This is an important factor, as many people believe that if they use a reverse mortgage, they automatically lose home ownership. With Sharon Johnson, however, seniors can afford to remain in a home that they own!
Working with Sharon Johnson: A Simple, Easy Process
Sharon is also dedicated to making the process simple and straightforward. The first step is to simply come in and meet with Sharon or her partner to receive basic information on the different reverse mortgage options.
To ensure that you are fully aware of reverse mortgage details, you’ll be required to take a counseling class before you can proceed. This is a single session that only takes about an hour.
Once you are fully educated on the details, Sharon will then guide you through the final process. From start to finish, you’ll be informed on the process, given clear support, and allowed to make a confident decision for your future.
We are proud to work with such a caring, dedicated leader in the reverse mortgage industry. Our partnership with a service-driven reverse mortgage specialist like Sharon Johnson allows us to make the transition process easier than ever!
