Steve Hollander

C2 Reverse Certified Loan Advisor Steve Hollander loves to help people get the most out of retirement. While advising clients on home equity release products is his primary function by day, Steve also enthusiastically seizes the opportunity to travel and golf with his lovely wife, Lauren and their three adult children whenever he can.

After graduating with a BS in Business from the University of Colorado, Steve spent the majority of his career in the real estate industry, gaining experience in listing, selling and financing homes. As a long-time Florida Real Estate Broker, he often encountered clients who would benefit greatly by the opportunity to access the equity in their home without having to sell and move. Try as he might, Steve could not find a reliable mortgage professional in his area who was specifically trained in the finer points of reverse mortgages, and whose primary focus was finding the appropriate solution tailored to each homeowner and their specific set of circumstances. So, he became that highly trained mortgage professional.

As Steve became more and more involved in formal training on reverse mortgages, he developed a considerable passion for helping qualified homeowners and their loved ones discover the potentially life-changing benefits of releasing their home’s equity without giving up their home. These homeowners use their hard-earned equity to supplement retirement income, travel, maintain their home, or meet unexpected health care costs. They even use reverse mortgages to move closer to family and to purchase a newer, “right-size” retirement home.

Steve has developed a widespread reputation for being trustworthy, honest and fair dealing. Clients repeatedly comment on how Steve’s primary focus is on doing what’s best for his clients. As a member of the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association, Steve adheres to the Code of Ethics from that highly regarded organization. With a committed professional like Steve, and strong consumer protections on your side, it has never been a better time to consider the important role a reverse mortgage can play in sound retirement planning.

Our Philosophy

Our Titles vary. We are mortgage consultants, loan originators, loan officers, and mortgage brokers.

What does not vary is that every day, borrowers like you entrust us with one of the most important financial decisions of your life, that if not executed properly can have long-lasting repercussions as was witnessed in 2008 during the mortgage meltdown.

We know that despite our best efforts and the government's best efforts to regulate the mortgage industry, our borrowers are too busy to review every last line of every single document . Our borrowers trust us as their mortgage advisor and that what they are signing is in their best interest.

We do not take that responsibility lightly. We do what is in the best interest for you, our client, not what is best for our pocketbook as some other brokers before us have done. We know by doing this, we not only are doing what is morally and ethically right, but we know this belief system will result in our borrowers referring us additional clients, the underpinnings of a long term relationship.
