Senior Solutions is a specialist reverse mortgage adviser. It is a division of Mortgage Studio Limited (specialist mortgage advising company), which is independently owned and operated by Wayne Lawrie. Our primary role is to provide practical, meaningful advice about the reverse mortgage products in the New Zealand marketplace, and their various strengths and weaknesses, and to assist seniors to obtain a reverse mortgage, if it is appropriate for them.
Wayne has been in the financial services industry since 1982 and worked for a major bank for a little over 20 years before deciding to start his own mortgage advising business (Mortgage Studio Limited) in 2003.
The expansion of the reverse mortgage market, in early 2004, resulted in him taking a keen interest in that market, and the available product offerings. He believes that his interest in this market stemmed from his early teens when he spent much of his time playing bowls and generally enjoying the company of seniors at his local bowling club. He is unashamedly passionate about helping people achieve more enjoyment and less stress by accessing equity in their homes and has found that a number of applicants have been encouraged by their children (many of whom are around Wayne’s age) to take advantage of the opportunity while they still have their health.
Wayne has a friendly, no-pressure approach, and encourages potential clients to take as long as they like to consider whether the product is right for them (this can stretch from a few days to many months - or even years!).
He also encourages potential clients to speak with their lawyer prior to making an application, and also to family members. He has received many referrals from lawyers who, in speaking with their clients, have determined that their client’s needs could be best served by a reverse mortgage product with meaningful advice and service wrapped around it.
