The Longbridge Story

Longbridge Financial, LLC, is an innovative company that’s committed to responsibly helping homeowners reshape their financial future by unlocking the power of the home.

Commitment to excellence.

As a leading national reverse mortgage lender and servicer, Longbridge lends education and support to partners across the country, working with reputable companies that share our commitment to the highest business and regulatory standards.

Commitment to clients.

Many clients under-prepare for retirement, or shortchange their goals because of financial constraints. The financial solutions we offer can help your clients eliminate or reduce monthly mortgage payments, or establish a guaranteed credit line to help fund the retirement lifestyle they worked so hard to earn.

A mission to make a difference.

Founded by an Ivy League professor and a team of experienced professionals from top financial services companies, it’s our mission to improve the reverse mortgage business through unparalleled service expertise and transparency.

How are we different from other lenders?

Our customer service.

We maintain an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau because we continually strive to exceed our clients’ expectations. Most importantly, as both a lender and a servicer, we support each client through underwriting, closing, and ultimately, servicing the loan—something few lenders can say.

Our people.

Our loan officers are industry experts who consistently receive five-star ratings in customer satisfaction from Trustpilot®, an independent, third-party review company. You can be confident that you’ll receive reliable advice and personal support at every step in the process.


We’re focused on ensuring that the reverse mortgage program meets the needs of every client we serve. We will help your client determine what reverse mortgage solution is right for them.  Not all lenders make this commitment.

Our pricing.

This industry-leading model provides substantial savings, with no hidden fees, as part of our ongoing commitment to make this product affordable for senior homeowners.

Our leadership.

Christopher Mayer, Ph.D. and CEO of Longbridge Financial, LLC, has spent more than 20 years studying housing and mortgages as a professor at Columbia University and the Wharton School. He’s been called to provide expert testimony before Congress many times, and is often consulted by the media for his housing-market expertise. Chris and the Longbridge team are committed to bringing the strategic value of reverse mortgages to today’s retirees.

Our partnerships.

We’ve developed exclusive partnerships to help drive lasting home ownership, and created programs that no other reverse mortgage lender offers.

Advisor Help Line

Longbridge Financial is an approved Federal Housing Administration (FHA) lender.

We offer reverse mortgages that are insured by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). We’re also a proud member of the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA), and fully subscribe to its Code of Ethics. Not all lenders can make that claim.
