“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

– Benjamin Franklin


One of the great concerns we all have when making important financial decisions is whether or not our advisors know enough and care enough to give us the right advice.

The 1st Nations team was founded in 1991, and we’ve been educating clients and their families about reverse mortgages long before many people even knew what they were, and well before any of the TV pitchmen arrived.  We are the oldest reverse mortgage team in the State of Michigan, and one of the oldest in the United States.  We understand our products, and we understand our clients and their needs.

We’ve helped thousands of people make the right decision, and we hope we can help you decide what is right for you.
