EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ (April 3, 2019) – New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a Berkshire Bank Company announces the addition of Sue Milligan based in Metairie, Louisiana.  Having earned the title of “Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional,” she has focused her business on providing reverse mortgages for homeowners over the age of 62.

“My primary goal is to bring awareness and education to customers on how important the reverse mortgage program is for the senior population.

First Choice Loan Services’ Executive Vice President of National Production James Iley is very happy about the addition of Milligan.

This type of commitment is unparalleled,” said Iley. “Sue’s professional excellence and unwavering steadfastness to provide service beyond belief blends perfectly with the values and culture of First Choice Loan Services. We look forward to supporting Sue as she continues to provide seamless reverse mortgage experiences for so many.”
