No one can whistle a symphony

Put a bunch of experience in a room and you’re going to get a good result, right?
Not even close.
This morning I read an interesting study: when surgeons are with a familiar team, outcomes are good. When the same surgeons are with an unfamiliar team, outcomes are…not so good.
The same holds true in sports – some teams with great players cannot get it together, while others achieve magical results with less stellar athletes.
And another sector studied? Financial services. Yup – financial services.
Turns out, team dynamics are hugely important. No amount of experience can replace the “magic” of an established, well-functioning team.
A few days ago I had a closing with a client whose reverse mortgage application had very big issues. In fact, he had been told by another lender he did not qualify. How did our team get him across the finish line?
It wasn’t just experience, though we have lots. Much of our success lay in knowing whom to turn to for what.
Reverse mortgage is a unique product designed to help meet financial needs in retirement. But there can be difficulties: homeowners may have several goals to consider. Extended family often has detailed questions. Online information can be outdated, uninformed, or outright wrong.
I would love to talk with you about how our reverse mortgage team may help you meet your retirement goals. Because as the saying goes, “No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra.”
