Hello! My name is Matthew (Matt) Allen and I am a Sr. Reverse Mortgage Banker with Pacific Residential Mortgage. While I have 10 years of mortgage experience doing all kinds of different “forward” mortgages, I now specialize and only do reverse mortgages.
I currently live in Phoenix Oregon with my awesome wife, Cari, and to very beautiful little girls, Tuleah 6 and Lucy 3. Tuleah is our artist and Lucy is the sweetest little thing that wreaks massive havoc. I love to hunt, fish, camp and you can pretty much find me and the family rafting on the Rogue River every weekend in the summer.
Why reverse mortgages? There’s that saying “Jack of trade and master of none.” That is how I felt when I was doing forward mortgages. I knew about and could do all of the various loans that were available, and there were a lot, but I was never a master at any of them. To provide really good service and advice to my clients I decided that I needed to focus on just one product. I chose to go with reverse mortgages. Mainly because I really liked working with my older clients. Secondly, because it is one product with a handful of options which means it allows me to master it. And finally because it really helps me focus my marketing and networking efforts.
Why Pacific Residential Mortgage? They are truly a great company to work for. I love the people I work with. In fact they have been voted one of the top 100 places to work in Oregon for several years now. Besides everything I just mentioned, we are able to control the entire loan process from the beginning all the way to the end. I do not have to broker my loans which can be absolutely maddening.
The following is from Pacific Residential Mortgage’s about us page.
