Did you know we are now home to the ‘Face of Reverse Mortgage’ in New Orleans?

That’s right. Our very own Alison Calamia, Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional (CRMP) and Assistant Vice President of AMR, is featured this month as part of New Orleans Magazine’s 2020 Faces of New Orleans series! We couldn’t be more proud!

It’s only natural after all. Alison was the first to bring reverse mortgage products to Louisiana, her home state, while working with a lender out of Levittown, New York. Alison has more than 25 years of experience in the mortgage industry, working on both the retail side in mortgage origination and the wholesale side as an Account Executive.

She has spent many years honing her extensive education in reverse mortgage and managing brokers and lenders throughout the country. She has truly become an expert on reverse mortgage products.

Alison tells New Orleans Magazine: “I love the ‘Aha!’ moment when customers and professionals say, ‘I didn’t know it worked that way.’ There are so many myths about Reverses, and I love to dispel them. On top of that, my customers keep my job exciting because they are so interesting.”

In January of 2019, Alison achieved an important and sought-after designation among professionals in reverse mortgage. She became one of only 151 CRMPs in the U.S. “The process involved to receive this designation was long and arduous and adds to the level of expertise maintained by myself and AMR,” Alison noted at the time.

Of working with her clients, Alison relishes the opportunity for relationship-building and creating connections. “For me, the reverse mortgage industry is not just about business, it’s about connecting with my customers and seeing how this product can truly transform their lives,” she says.

Alison has truly transformed many of her clients’ lives through her work in reverse mortgage and in her work with AMR. We’re so proud to be in business with her!
