Birdsell was honored for utilizing his strong coding skillset, problem-solving capabilities and in-depth industry knowledge to position reverse mortgages into technological and operational coexistence with the world of traditional mortgage lending. To that end, Jeff’s development oversight has been critical to the successful completion of recent landmark product advancements, including ReverseVision’s expanded support for proprietary reverse mortgage products, the development and launch of the Comparison Calculator tool within RV Sales Accelerator (RVSA), the creation of advanced API plug-ins and the overhaul RV Administrator (RVA).

“For the last six years, Jeff has worked with ReverseVision to refine its product offerings and deliver superior professional services to clients,” said John Button, president and CEO of ReverseVision. “His commitment to client service and advancing the HECM and reverse industry is unparalleled. We commend him for this honor.”

“I’m very passionate about cultivating technology and business practices that strengthen our industry and quality of life for seniors,” said Birdsell. “To receive recognition for my accomplishments is very rewarding and would not be possible without the efforts of my top-notch team at ReverseVision.”

“Our Insiders grow more difficult to choose each year as their talent and impacts on the mortgage and real estate industry continue to blow us away,” said HousingWire Associate Editor Kelsey Ramírez. “This year’s winners are truly the secret weapons of their industry and continue to push their companies to greatness and move markets forward.”
