“AnnieMac Home Mortgage is honored to begin serving the many members of the NFL Alumni Association,” said AnnieMac CEO Joseph Panebianco. “Partnering with an organization whose value system and charitable efforts that so closely mirrors our own is incredibly exciting. Our combined goal is to ensure that every member of the NFL Alumni is handheld through the complex mortgage process with the level of service, care and commitment they deserve.”

“The NFL Alumni Association is proud of this power package of mortgage services. AnnieMac Home Mortgage is the All Pro of their industry and their leadership has led to an amazing team of companies to support our players home ownership needs,” said NFL Alumni CEO Beasley Reece.

To achieve this mission, Debt Free Living LLC was recruited to assist with debt to income management. NFLA has drafted Get Credit Healthy LLC to assist with credit repair and preparation. Finlocker LLC will provide the technology to enable home ownership and mortgage readiness leveraging consumer data, analytics and insightful engagement. Keller Williams will provide a national concierge service for housing needs called “TheHomeStore”.

Debt Free Living:
We use proven financial concepts and strategies to help individuals and businesses eliminate all of their debt in a fraction of their time. We use financial planning as a tool to eliminate all debt. From student loans to business lines of credit we specialize in guiding our clients to a debt free lifestyle while making sure once they are out of debt, they have the proper plan to never have to go back into debt.

“When a financial advisor is evaluating a company’s stock for a client’s portfolio, they look at the assets and liabilities of that company,” said Debt Free Living President David Linsky. “They analyze the entire balance sheet to make sure that stock is valued correctly in conjunction to the risk of the company. We feel financial advisors should be doing the same thing with their clients. By asking the necessary questions about a client’s debt situation we are able to use our proprietary software so illustrate a plan for that person to eliminate all of their debt including their mortgage in under 9 years on average. It is not just about how much someone is earning on their investments but also how much they are losing due to paying debt.”
