Happy Independence Day! - From The Aramco Group

Posted by The Aramco Group on Wed, Jul 4, 2012 @ 08:07 AM

The Aramco GroupAs we celebrate this Independence Day, I’d like to take just a few minutes of your time from your hot dogs, fireworks and patriotic music to thank the men and women who have given us the amazing blessing of being able to celebrate our Nation’s 236th Birthday. This country has given millions of people the ability to follow their dreams, and has left us with no excuses for falling short. I’d like to thank all those who have served in the armed forces and have sacrificed their time, talents, and even their own lives and the lives of their family members, for the continued safety and freedom that we have come to expect in this great country. 

While there is no shame in celebrating with fireworks, barbeques, friends and family, we should remember the brave soldiers today, who are still stationed across the globe to preserve the freedom that we so often take for granted. A special Thank You goes out to these men and women who have put their country first, and have honorably sacrificed for the greater good of our country. As I sit here watching the magnificent firework show with my neighbors, I can’t help but think of how lucky we are to be living in this country. Whether you’re an immigrant who came to the U.S.A. looking for a better life, or an American, born and raised, we can all agree that we have a lot to be thankful for being able to call ourselves, American. 

This 4th of July is a perfect time to explain Aramco Financial’s new motto, “You Secured Our Future, We’ll Secure Yours.”  Aramco Financial who serves the seniors of California with its Reverse Mortgage expertise, has introduced this as a representation of our thanks to the men and women who have shaped this country into what it is today. To the women who rallied for voting rights, the brave people who protested for equality, to the men who fought in the bloody world wars, and the everyday Americans who took it upon themselves to pass down to us the most amazing gift of freedom, Thank You. 

We truly have today’s seniors to thank for the comforts we enjoy today. So to the Americans who have passed along to us freedom, innovation, and the American Spirit, thank you for Securing Our Future, and in turn We’ll Secure Yours. Whether it’s by securing your retirement with a Reverse Mortgage, or even simply answering a couple burning finance questions you might have, we want to in our own way show our thanks. We wish you all a happy and healthy 4th of July, and once again, Thank You.


You Secured Our Future. We’ll Secure Yours.


Happy Independence Day!

Mehran Aram CRMP – Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional

Posted by The Aramco Group on Thu, Jun 28, 2012 @ 11:06 AM

Mehran Aram Certified Reverse Mortgage ProfessionalThe world’s most renowned doctors are MDs, the best businessmen are CEOs, CPAs are the masters of accounting, and now the CRMP defines the premier Reverse Mortgage Professional. This highly sought-after designation not only differentiates an average reverse mortgage originator from a premier reverse mortgage professional, but also ensures a standard of ethics, experience, competency and customer service. The Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional or CRMP designation has been bestowed to less than 10 people in the state of California, and Mehran Aram, President and CEO of Aramco Financial is the only CRMP to exclusively serve California homeowners for their reverse mortgage needs.

Educated seniors across the state are now focusing their search for reverse mortgage services to those who have earned this highest and most prestigious certification the industry offers. Why is the CRMP designation such a big deal? Here at Aramco Financial we understand what an important financial decision it is to attain a Reverse Mortgage, and inherently there is an enormous amount of trust given to the reverse mortgage company as well as the originator of the loan. Thus, it is extremely important that this trust is given carefully, and only to a company who is dedicated to your best interest. The CRMP (Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional) designation maintained by Mehran Aram at Aramco Financial allows seniors to comfortably put their trust in a company and a person who has proven their knowledge, experience, integrity, and dedication to the seniors of California. It is with great excitement that we introduce you to the newest professional standard, and we hope our own CRMP designation will help express to you our dedication to our clients’ best interests and financially sound retirement.  


If you’re looking for more information on the reverse mortgage, interested in getting started, or simply searching to educate yourself further, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1(877) 700-0942, visit our website at, or Sign Up for one of our upcoming dinner seminars in San Diego County where we discuss the reverse mortgage product and address the questions and concerns of the seniors in our community.

A Matter Of Trust

Posted by The Aramco Group on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 @ 14:02 PM

In our radio spots and in some of my blog posts, we talk about trust and the fact that you can trust us. But why should you trust us? Well, there are several reasons and I'd like to share a few them with you. 

Our companies, The Aramco Group and Aramco Mortgage and Aramco Financial, are licensed by the DRE, which is the California Department of Real Estate. Our DRE license number is 01853626. We are also licensed by the NMLS, the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System & Registry (just don't ask me why it's not NMLS&R). Our NMLS number is 277316.

These licenses tell you that we're qualified to do what we do and that our qualifications are determined by authoritative bodies. They are also required for us to operate our business.

A couple of associations that are not required, but that support our commitment to honesty and ethics, are our memberships in CAMP and NAMP, which are the California and National Associations of Mortgage Professionals, respectively.

It would be a vast understatement to say that the mortgage and real estate finance industries have changed significantly over the past four years. The significant changes since the housing industry imploded have come on an almost daily basis, and these two groups help us stay educated, informed and on top of our industry and business so that we can provide our customers with the best service and counsel possible.

Aramco Financial is also a member of NRMLA, the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association. NRMLA is also a resource for us as professionals and its Code of Ethics states why it's important for us to belong:

"Our mission is to educate consumers about the pros and cons of reverse mortgages, to train lenders to be sensitive to clients' needs, to enforce our Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility, and to advise policy makers on reverse mortgage issues."

Penultimately, we're members of the Better Business Bureau - and we're not just members, but I'm proud to say that we are an Accredited Business and have an A+ rating with the BBB. 

But by far the most important reason that I believe you can trust me and my companies is this: I am a man of the Christian faith and I take that faith seriously. I am not perfect, but I strive to live to a set of standards established not by me, or by any man, but by my God, and to operate and direct my business in an honorable and ethical manner.

One of my personal heroes is Ronald Reagan, and one of his more famous quotes is "Trust, but verify" - his policy when negotiating arms reduction treaties with the Soviet Union.

Trust goes hand-in-hand with character, honesty and integrity. I believe my businesses and the people who work for me possess these traits. That's why you can trust us - and verify it by clicking on the links above.
