Program Notes:

Herb Ziev recently returned to Benchmark Mortgage which is the company where he began his career in the mortgage industry. Benchmark works with the same underwriter and loan processer on all of its loans, which makes it easier for Benchmark to assure their clients that they will “absolutely close on time”. Herb works with all types of mortgage lending, including loans for vacation homes, construction, and reverse mortgages. Interest rates are still determined by 3 factors: (1) amount of the loan, (2) amount of the down payment, and (3) credit history – which is the most critical. So, if you need a mortgage loan or want to refi an existing mortgage loan, contact Herb.

Program Notes:

Fred Badyna explained the A, B, C and D’s of the Medicare system. Everyone qualifies at age 65 for Medicare Part A. However, Part A doesn’t cover everything. Part A does not cover routine prescription drugs so a Medicare supplement plan is something that should be purchased to assist in covering what Part A doesn’t cover. Fred can easily determine the best option for supplemental coverage. With longer life expectancies, long-term care insurance is a necessity. Fred has a long-term care plan that will return an initial significant deposit in the event the benefits are not utilized. If you have any questions about Medicare or long-term care, Fred is the person to contact.

Program Notes:

As required by the DBA bylaws, Tuesday’s meeting was an orientation for our newest members (although current members certainly appreciated the refresher). DBA was organized in 1973 and is believed to be Dallas’ second oldest networking organization. Fred joined shortly after DBA’s inception and has been enjoying eggs and bacon on Tuesday mornings for over 43 years.

DBA is an incorporated nonprofit organization with a stated purpose of interchanging business between members and providing ideas and opportunities to increase profits for its members. DBA is required to maintain a cash reserve in order to insure that it is always financially sound.
