In the July-August issue of Reverse Mortgage magazine, we interviewed 11 female leaders from across the reverse mortgage ecosystem to discuss their careers and to offer advice for younger generations of women who want to grow and succeed in the reverse mortgage business.
Challenges come and go, but the satisfaction of helping older Americans stay in their homes is forever. That makes the reverse mortgage industry an ideal fit for women, say female leaders in the reverse mortgage space.
“Women bring a special balance of patience, caretaking, detail, determination and work ethic, which are perfect for this industry,” says Megan Awalt, vice president of Allegiant Reverse Services. “This industry provides a space where we can lean on each other and support each other. It’s big enough to have endless career opportunities but small enough to feel like you’re part of a community.”
