Debora O'Dell

HECM Vice President


Debora started working in the mortgage industry in 2006, after hearing that her father took out a Reverse Mortgage. She began investigating the HECM loan option and decided she really liked what she learned about the FHA insured program, which lead her to pursuing a career in helping seniors obtain Reverse Mortgages.

Debora is a highly proactive, no – nonsense business woman, known for getting things accomplished. Since she started working in the industry, Debora has been awarded for excellence. With her background, skill set, and a natural affinity for helping seniors, she finds her position as a HECM loan originator as a perfect fit. Debora is very excited about teaming up with The Federal Savings Bank to utilize their experience and experts in the HECM National Division. She expects to be able to easier streamline and improve the loan process for her borrowers.

Debora and her husband Patrick are Iowa natives, where they are hobby breeders who raise Miniature Longhair Dachshunds and Pembroke Welsh Corgis. They have been known to visit their local nursing home with their dogs as a form pet therapy for the residents. Due to her love of architecture and artistic talent, in her spare time Debora designs and builds in miniature.
