Mortgage Press columnist launches reverse training and consulting firmMortgagePress.comreverse mortgages, training and education
The Mortgage Press columnist and reverse mortgage
expert Atare E. Agbamu, CRMS has launched ThinkReverse LLC, a
reverse mortgage training and consulting company to support the
increased training and consulting needs of the emerging reverse
"ThinkReverse LLC is a response to a strong and persistent need
for reverse mortgage training and consulting," Agbamu said. "Two
out of every three responses I receive from readers across the
country is about some need for training and consulting services.
This is the next stage in a reverse mortgage lending
awareness-raising drive that began almost four years ago with the
inception of my column in The Mortgage Press. Today, much of the
training in the emerging reverse mortgage industry is done by the
two correspondent-sponsoring wholesalers in the nation. As the
industry grows in the coming years, wholesalers' training capacity
will need competent outside support."
There is also a need to train and prepare forward mortgage
originators who want to make a smooth transition to reverse
mortgage lending to broaden their product offerings and position
themselves for the huge senior market. One such lender is Lenexa,
Kan.-based LeaderOne Financial Corporation. LeaderOne recently
hired Agbamu to train its staff and advise its management in
preparation of entering the reverse mortgage arena.
ThinkReverse LLC trains and consults with mortgage brokers,
mortgage bankers, bankers, credit unions, financial advisors,
mortgage-affiliated professionals and regulators. Its
reverse-readiness training program includes an intense eight-hour,
three-module training course that covers reverse mortgage
essentials, reverse mortgage marketing and reverse mortgage
origination. Agbamu is widely regarded as an emerging authority on
reverse mortgages. In addition to marketing and originating reverse
mortgages, he writes a regular monthly column, Forward on
Reverse, published exclusively by The Mortgage Press Ltd. that
has been raising awareness about the reverse mortgage market since
2002. As a state- and nationally-certified trainer, Agbamu has
trained hundreds of mortgage professionals since 2000.
Based in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, ThinkReverse LLC is a
reverse mortgage training and consulting company. For more
