Gabe takes pride in assisting his customers with their home financing needs by evaluating their goals, time horizons and risk tolerances to educate them and make recommendations on how to best structure their mortgage financing needs. Gabe has worked with first time buyers, investors, flippers, developers, and everyone in between. Gabe’s specialty however is serving seniors. As a retirement mortgage planner, Gabe helps seniors evaluate their income and cash flow needs in retirement. Gabe believes that the way retirement is done in our country today is broken and his goal is to help change the way retirement is done in this country. Gabe explains that by including home equity into one’s retirement planning strategy, his clients will not only improve cash flow but they can also pay less in taxes and leave a larger legacy for their heirs (this is based on current research from Dr. Wade Phau, Jamie Hopkins and Barry Sacks).
