Reverse mortgage lender recognized for customer service, marketplace ethics and community service
“The reverse mortgage has been the undeserving victim of years of bad press,” explains Phil Goss, Reverse Mortgage Professional in Glendora. “I see my job as an educator rather than salesman. For many people a reverse mortgage is an excellent option, and I take the time to explain the facts properly so people can avoid a lot of heartache later.”
That approach probably has a lot to do with the notoriety Goss’ company has received this year. Atlanta-based Generation Mortgage Company, the largest privately owned reverse mortgage retailer and wholesaler in the Unites States, has won the 2011 Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Metro Atlanta’s Torch Award for Customer Service and Marketplace Ethics, and was the first runner-up for the Torch Award in Community Service.
“We’re very pleased to be recognized by the BBB for awards that are so closely aligned to the way our company thinks and operates each day,” said Chairman and CEO Jeff Lewis, Generation Mortgage Company. “The characteristics that these awards represent are inherent in our company vision and are the targets by which we strive to set the industry standards for client trust and customer service excellence.”
The BBB of Metro Atlanta annually presents the Torch Awards to businesses in the community. Awards are presented in three different categories: Marketplace Ethics, Customer Service and Community Service. Judges are highly selective and a variety of information, including client testimonials and documentation of business practices applicable to the specific award, are closely examined.
The Torch Awards build upon Generation Mortgage’s already strong relationship with the BBB. In December 2009, Generation Mortgage earned the organization’s highest accreditation rating, an A+.
These awards acknowledge Generation Mortgage’s position as an ethical company that is committed to fair conduct in the marketplace, exceptional customer service, and giving back to the community.
