Hugo Mendez, who has over 18 years of experience in the local real estate industry, has been awarded the title of senior reverse mortgage loan consultant in the Santa Barbara office of Guarantee Mortgage.

In this position, he helps clients use a reverse mortgage to ensure a more secure retirement by turning some of the equity in their homes into a tax-free loan.

Mendez’s broad experience includes positions as a residential home loan officer at Santa Barbara Bank & Trust and as a realtor at Village Properties.

Since 2015 he has specialized in reverse mortgage loans at Guarantee Mortgage, enabling home owners to stay in their homes as long as they live, without making a principal and interest home loan payment.

Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Mendez graduated from Santa Barbara High School. Together with his wife of 26 years, he raised his three children here.

Although firmly rooted in this community, they enjoy traveling to Europe, which they have visited 10 times already. They are especially fond of Italy, as Mendez previously lived for a year in Florence.

Mendez can be reached by calling 805.570.9198 or visiting his website.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
