About Donna Moore, the author

dogs & me in blue.I am a Florida licensed Reverse Mortgage Broker and Certified Reverse Mortgage Expert.  I operate a FHA approved mortgage office for HighTech Lending in St. Petersburg, Florida. Everyday I encounter Florida seniors that have misconceptions about the HECM program. I am devoted to informing the public on the pros and cons of reverse mortgages. The program may not be for everyone but knowing the facts should be essential to all seniors. I provide the facts so that an educated decision can be made. Everyone knows “someone” who could benefit from a reverse mortgage, sometimes we just don’t know it.

I moved to Florida 29 years ago, from the upper peninsula of Michigan where I grew up on a large dairy farm. I have milked more than one cow in my lifetime! My career has always been in the service industry, helping others. The very  first Reverse Mortgage I originated was for a couple in Tampa, Florida trying to exist on a limited income, of which 65% monthly was going to an existing mortgage. When I saw how the Reverse Mortgage changed their lives and eased their financial burdens, I knew I had to bring awareness of the HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage) program to as many Florida seniors as possible. For that reason, I am passionate about speaking to groups and organizations in the Tampabay area.

I also believe in educating seniors about other programs that can be beneficial for retirement. I do public speaking for a not for profit organization on reverse mortgages and other financial and retirement topics.

When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family, including my grandchildren. I adore my Jack Russells, who are addicted to frisbees, tennis balls and have endless energy for both.  I am a member of my church choir, have served as a board member of Women’s Council of Realtors, belong to Better Living for Seniors (BLS) a professional division of the Pinellas/Pasco Agency on Aging, am a Kiwanis member, affiliate member of Pinellas Realtor Organization (PRO) and am a past President of RealTalkers Toastmasters International. I enjoy challenging myself with public speaking and have won first place in the Area Humorous Speech Contest in Toastmasters. Being humorous is not always easy, especially when you are trying to be. However, I love the sound of laughter so it is well worth the effort.

My favorite quote is from Jim Rohn: “Whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness – great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation and great joy.” I believe we all have the ability to be great.

If you need more information about reverse mortgages please give me a call at 727-831-3416, I would love to help you.

    I truly enjoyed learning about Donna’s past and have done business with her. I appreciate her high ethical standards and her advise as she will lose a sale instead of lead people in the wrong direction. I truly thank her for her professionalism and friendship.
