Auburn081814FBSO_AUBURSS00001The First Choice for Second Chances

When a bank foreclosed on
a Florida couple, there were questions about how the lender had arrived at the amount owed. The Florida law firm of Ice Appellate challenged the foreclosure, proving the bank representative who signed the foreclosure document was not personally familiar with the details. As a result, a state appeals court ruled in the homeowners’ favor. The case, Glarum v. LaSalle, was instrumental in having the controversial practice of “robo-signing” by banks declared illegal.
“This case was a game-changer,” says Tom Ice, principal at Ice Appellate. “For the first time, banks were held to the same standard of evidence as anyone else.” …Read More

EdTBFinancial063014FBFL_TBFINNC00001ucation-Focused Approach Builds Trust, Yields Smart Retirement Planning Decisions

Elizabeth Cornell and Nicholas Lizzio are on a mission to educate Central Floridians about retirement planning strategies related to annuities and life insurance. The co-founders of TB Financial Group believe that once people become knowledgeable about these retirement income instruments, many of them will naturally come to realize they are their best option to preserve principal and provide income for the rest of their lives.

“Annuities offer some of the strongest income benefits available and for a retiree or someone planning for retirement, they just make sense,” says Cornell, CEO of TB Financial, which deals strictly in fixed annuities, index annuities and life insurance. “However, given the varied benefits, restrictions and tax implications these products and carriers have, it’s extremely important to work with someone who specializes in these products and truly knows how to plan with them. There are advisors and agents who sell good products in the wrong situation which ultimately makes them bad products.” …Read More
