Marty Gentleman graduated from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota with a degree in Business Administration. He spent the majority of his career working in the insurance industry. In 1965, Marty started working alongside mortgage lenders offering their borrowers voluntary insurance programs. The majority of his career in has been spent in sales, which has helped him learn the importance of carefully listening to the needs and challenges of his clients. Marty has established his career on building relationships, earning trust, and providing service with integrity as a foundation.

In recent years Marty worked with seniors helping them find their dream homes at a very special time of their lives in 55+ communities. Marty’s first introduction to HECM’s was in 1996, when he was asked by mortgage industry leaders to provide a companion insurance product for HECMs. Knowing that he always wants to serve people and find better ways to help them plan for the future, he thinks of a HECM as a way for seniors to find peace. Every senior real estate client that he has worked with still considers him a friend.

When he is away from work, Marty spends time with his wife Joyce, his wife of over 50 years, and their four daughters and nine grandchildren who bring them great joy. He and his wife are also active in various ministries, volunteer groups, and enjoys playing tennis.
