“…the comparison isn't so much about the rate, it's about your house, and what other alternatives you have.”


William Brown is the National Renovation Sales Manager at Finance of America Mortgage, LLC. He brings a depth of knowledge and insights, gained over time, with more than 20 years of experience in construction trades and 15 years in the mortgage and housing industries.  

During the past 10 years, he has built and managed renovation and construction ops for two national lenders which served retail, wholesale, NDC and delegated origination channels. Close to 8000 renovation or construction loans have gone through his operations centers. Each received project management support to assist the borrower, mortgage adviser, realtor and contractor prior to closing, and high touch draw administration services post-closing. In the interests of improving the product throughout its lifespan, William has also written product guidelines, training, and marketing materials for all participants in the renovation loan process.

Talking Points:

  • What are renovation loans?
  • What types of “green” mortgages are available for consumers?
  • Can you explain HomeStyle loans, Green Choice, and EEM?
  • What are the advantages of “green mortgages” as opposed to conventional mortgages?
  • In this unprecedented time of low interest, can “green mortgage” compete with other products?
