Industry leaders to serve as IDFA’s reverse mortgage resource
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (Apr. 7, 2021) – The Steven J. Sless Group of Primary Residential Mortgage has formed an affinity partnership with the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts (IDFA).
Founded in 1993, IDFA provides specialized training to accounting, financial and legal professionals in the field of pre-divorce financial planning. It has certified more than 5,000 professionals in the United States and Canada as Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®) professionals.
“IDFA is the premier organization for financial professionals in the divorce arena and we are thrilled to team with them as their reverse mortgage resource,” said Division President Steven J. Sless, CLTC®. “We look forward to helping their members better serve their 60+ clients by having a deeper understanding of how reverse mortgages can help both parties move forward with their divorce fairly.”
In addition to providing video content and contributing articles to IDFA’s quarterly journal, Sless’ team will speak at IDFA’s National Conference, host a webinar where members can receive CFP credits and be a continuing education program sponsor.
“With an increasing divorce rate across the United States among older couples, we are pleased to partner with The Steven J. Sless Group of PRMI and provide their quality educational materials as an additional resource to our CDFA® professionals,” said IDFA President Carol Lee Roberts.
Gray divorce is on the rise and dividing real estate assets, retirement accounts and other wealth accumulated is a delicate and sometimes arduous process for older couples going through a divorce. For baby boomers in particular, the worry that there may not be enough of a financial cushion to live independently may lead to a complex divorce process.
“Partnering with the Sless team is a smart move for IDFA as Steven Sless is the best in the business when it comes to reverse mortgages,” said Steven F. Bryant, Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® and founder of Synergy Divorce Solutions in Annapolis, Md., who has worked with Sless for several years.
“He ‘holds our clients’ hands throughout the process – which is extremely important during times of divorce when so many things are uncertain,” Bryant added. “And his communication, response time and follow up are second to none.”
