Dean's Promise


My goal is to make sure that my customers and their families have every question answered when it comes to reverse mortgages. My job is to explain how your reverse mortgage will work and whether or not it’s going to be a good decision for your financial needs. I am happy to also meet with your financial advisor and you to discuss why this option may be the best one for you.

During our conversations, we will review which type of reverse mortgage is right for you, depending on what your goals are. I will fully explain the options, the terms and all fees you can expect and break down those costs for you.

I will take as much time as you need during the process to ensure you feel comfortable and confident in your choice to use Fairway.

About Dean


Born and raised in New York City; as a teenager, I moved to upstate New York. I was married at 19 years old and started a family. I sold insurance before opening a string of furniture stores. I moved to North Carolina in 1988, and soon after began my career in finance. I opened a bagel deli for a couple of years, and then resumed my career in finance by starting my own commercial mortgage brokerage for the next 15 years. I then worked for a short time at a local community bank as a commercial loan officer before starting with Fairway.

I enjoy playing golf, riding motor cycles, and being with my family.
