Employee Spotlight: Meet Brandi!
ReverseMortgages.com is excited to bring you an interview series with great new discussions detailing stories of the personal and professional lives of our own team members. To kick off our brand-new RMC Interview Series, we have selected our top production loan officer, Brandi Reynolds.
Brandi has been with ReverseMortgages.com for almost 15 years and is a skilled expert in the mortgage industry. Since moving to Missouri in 2003 from Northern Iowa, she has met her companion, Justin, and they have welcomed two sons, who she says, “fills my heart with joy and love”. When she is not traveling with her eldest son’s competitive baseball team, this St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan loves attending Mizzou sporting events, being outdoors, working out, and spending quality time with friends and family.
We recently met with Brandi and asked her to share more of her background with us. She is an asset to our company and we appreciate her willingness to contribute. It’s a privilege to share this interview to our readers.

It is cliché but so true!
“Do what you love and love what you do!”
My Dad once told me while growing up that my mother and him were not going to prepare or pave my road in life, however, they would prepare me for the road ahead. Such good advice that I think about often as I am raising my boys.
If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
My grandfather, who passed 5 years ago. He was the best man in the world and his smile and laughter were so infectious!

It is a great retirement tool and can be utilized as a non-market correlated asset with the line of credit and growth rate features.
What is your favorite part about your job?
Building everlasting relationships and helping borrowers enjoy their remaining years of life to the fullest.
