Customer Testimonial for Susan Domino

Customer Testimonial for Susan Domino

Ventura, CA / Feb 27, 2012

I'm a 70 year old single female living in north Oxnard, CA. I've been retired for several years and realized that my savings were dwindling and I was struggling to pay my mortgage every month. I heard of a reverse mortgage, but mostly, I heard negative comments about how seniors get scammed. Five years ago, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had major surgery and chemo. Most of my savings were going toward medical bills and mortgage payments. In 2008, I called a friend in the real estate business and asked him to refer me to someone to call for information on a reverse mortgage. I called one person and tried to explain things but I was not comfortable talking to a stranger about my finances on the phone. He never offered to come to my house - so I told him I wasn't interested. Now, three years later it's June, 2011, and I was more desperate to get a reverse mortgage.

I went on-line and saw a video of Susan Domino of Guild Mortgage in Camarillo. Her office is 15 minutes from my house so I called. Just speaking to her on the phone, I knew this will be the person who could rescue me. She came to my house and I was immediately comfortable and knew that she was very honest and helpful. She explained the reverse-mortgage program and answered all my questions. I even had my neighbor come over for support. She made the whole process of getting a reverse mortgage so easy and my escrow closed within 45 days.

Now I never have to make another mortgage payment and I also received a check for almost $22,000. I had been making mortgage payments for 37 years - as I moved a few times. It's like a weight was lifted from my shoulders, knowing that I'm truly FREE! Now I can stay in my beautiful house for the rest of my life and go shopping as often as I want. I highly recommend Susan Domino, who I dubbed "Queen of Reverse Mortgages."
