Rob Awalt Builds A New Team

Professional athletes who become successful in subsequent careers often cite lessons from their sports experience as helping them meet the challenge. For Rob Awalt, former tight end for the St. Louis and Phoenix Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills from 1987 through 1993, the key takeaway is that the focus has to be on the team, not the individual. But to make the team successful, you have to concentrate on doing your own part as well as you possibly can.

This is the guiding principle that led Awalt to establish Allegiant Reverse Services in April 2016. The nationwide title and settlement company, headquartered in Roseville, California is dedicated exclusively to reverse mortgage closings. “We are not focused on running any other business or any part of the business, or the next real estate sale”, Awalt states. “If we take care of the borrower, the lenders are taken care of and have a loan that is done well that they can sell to a securitizer and servicer. Our part in the reverse mortgage process is to ‘glue it all together.” Not surprisingly, “we” and “team” references pepper Awalt’s conversations.

FHA Increases HECM Loan Limit

The maximum claim amount for FHA-insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgages has been increased from its current $625,500 limit to $636,150, according to Mortgagee Letter 2016-19 published by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

This new MCA – which is equal to 150 percent of the Freddie Mac national conforming limit of $424,100 – becomes effective for case numbers assigned on or after January 1, 2017 and will last through December 31, 2017. The $636,150 limit also applies to the Freddie Mac high-cost exception areas, which include Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and the Virgin Islands.

The ARS rate calculator has been adjusted so clients can quote up to the new HECM loan limit before being notified that Jumbo fees are needed.

Yes, We Are Open for Business!  In just a few weeks the name Allegiant Reverse Services was born, we found office space and our brand was established.  Our first official order was opened. We attended NRMLA in Huntington Beach for this first time as Allegiant Reverse Services.

Day one of our new venture was spent at the East Coast NRMLA conference in New York City.  At that time we didn’t have a name, office or email address but we had a vision for what would become Allegiant Reverse Services. Throughout the event we heard the same message over and over, “I work with people, not with companies”.


We look forward to everything that 2017 will bring!
