Caleb is Craig’s son and has decided to join his father in this group focusing on Reverse Mortgage Loans.  As Caleb is still in school, his role currently is a summer intern.

Hello, my name is Caleb Schweiger, and I am from Wexford, PA which is just about 20 minutes north of the city. I am currently enrolled in the Smeal College of Business at Penn State University and intend on majoring in Finance. In learning more about reverse mortgage loans I feel blessed to be part of this department.  A couple things I am interested in are sports, and the Stock Market.

Hi I am Luke DeCello. I am from South Fayette Pa. I have lived in the Pittsburgh area my entire life with the exception of the 4 years I was in college. I graduated from Xavier University in 2018 with a double major in Business Management and Sports Management.

Some of the things I enjoy are sports, staying active, and helping others. I cannot wait to get started with this team, and am very grateful to have this opportunity. I really believe in this product, and believe it can help many seniors.

Our Mission & Values

It is our privilege to have an opportunity to serve seniors with these reverse mortgage loans.  We would NEVER put anyone in harms way or suggest a loan for the sake of commission.  There is certain criteria you’ll need to meet in order to qualify for a Reverse Mortgage.  You will also be required to meet with a qualified counselor to ensure you completely understand the mortgage you are applying for.  A few questions:

  • Are you 62 or older?
  • Do you have equity in your home?
  • Is there a need for extra money for ANY reason, vacation, medical or remodeling, etc?

If you answered yes, a reverse mortgage may be for you.


Craig and his team operate in the same manner that his mortgage company has for the past 21 years. Above boards with honor and respect.

We are confident that after a conversation with our team the rapport built will quickly gain your trust. A Reverse Mortgage may seem too good to be true, but it is a great vehicle to help you retire in comfort.

Even though Craig, Kyle, Caleb and Luke are the face of this division, there are many people behind the scenes that make this work.

With this new division of Federated Mortgage will be focusing on Western PA but hope to be able to provide this product in every state where we lend.
