Cristel-Taylor-Cristel Taylor

Cristel was first introduced to the life settlement industry while managing Retirement, Assisted Living and Memory Care Communities. Cristel was seeking ways to help families pay for the costs of the care for their loved ones.

When she was introduced to the concept of life settlements, she immediately saw the huge potential for families. A financial windfall from a life settlement could provide families with a choice of community that is best for their family member. She also found that virtually no one knew their life insurance policies were an asset that they could use to fund the cost of care. Sometimes, and too often she would be told that families had let a policy lapse a few years ago, or even just a few months ago. This motivated Cristel to start NW Life Settlements, striving to reach and educate seniors and their families about the market value of their life insurance policy and life settlement agreements.
