Getting To Know Harlan Accola
Harlan J. Accola, CRMP, is a respected Reverse Mortgage authority and author of an outstanding book on the subject, entitled, “Home Equity and Reverse Mortgages, The Cinderella of Baby Boomer Retirement”. When he talks about RMs, we should listen.
In his book Chapter Five he is explaining some facts to his youngest son and his statement is, “Yes, Isaac. We are going to get one of these the day we turn sixty-two, which is not only good for us but also for you and your three brothers”.
On April 27th he turned 62 and on April 27th he got a Reverse Mortgage. Not only does he talk the talk but he walks the walk. Does he know something that we do not?
Best way to find out, buy his book. Also, while you are online, buy his colleague Dan Hultquist’s book, “Understanding Reverse Mortgages”. You will be glad you did. Some well written education material is never out of style.
Sidebar: I always ask everyone I meet in class or socially, “Where did you go to High School?”. Harlan’s reply was Pittsville High School in Pittsville, WI. Go Panthers.
Pittsville (population 834) is in central Wisconsin. Also, it is 52 miles from where I was born and lived the first 11 years of my life. Shamrock in Jackson County. Go Badgers. We can talk about winter temperatures, snow, mosquitos, deer hunting, Packers, Bucks, and about great places to grow up.
Hope your new mortgage works out well for you, your spouse and your four sons. Wonder how your counselor felt discussing the loan with you.
