Thanks to GR, my partner and I had a seamless and efficient loan application experience. The fact that we both were on the loan was not a problem and we felt very respected. The application was conveniently electronic and the team was very polite and sent handy reminders when paperwork needed addressing. The Settlement Meeting for the purchase of our home was not stressful and our GR Officer was present and explained all the paperwork very well and made it a comfortable and confident...

I was doing a 30 day close and nervous about how quickly my loan would have to come together. Everyone as Guaranteed Rate was very responsive and quick. I was able to get my loan well within the 30 days and am a happy new homeowner!

What can I say, these folks just nailed it for us. We're first time homeowners and we rent in Silicon Valley. I'm from Philly and my dream was to own a home here in South Philly. The dream felt unreachable until I started working with you folks. You made my dreams come true, you worked hard for me and were kind and understanding during the ENTIRE process. I really don't have enough words to say here. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Rob, Paul, and Kristin are fantastic human beings...thus they...

About Rob

Licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and a 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Philadelphia Magazine Five Star Mortgage Professional Award recipient, I place customers into the most favorable mortgage programs for purchasing and refinancing primary residences, second homes, and investment properties. Highly proficient in Conventional, FHA, and VA financing with a keen understanding of underwriting guidelines in this ever-adapting lending environment.

Driving my success and my customers' continued satisfaction is my thorough analysis leading to the most sound financial decision, my well-organized and systematic approach to ensure a smooth transaction, and my representation for my customer as if the transaction was my own. Now in my 14th year in the mortgage industry, I still truly enjoy seeing my clients' excitement at closing when they receive the keys to their new home.

My degrees from Pennsylvania State University in Finance and an MBA in Accounting from Temple University eventually guided me to the home financing world.

I love spending time with my wonderful family, watching Philadelphia evolve as a world-class city, and anything baseball.

Rob interview Q&A

What specific steps do you use to help your customers find the best home loan for them?
As a future homeowner, budgeting plays a critical role in the largest purchase you will ever make. Often times, mortgage guidelines allow for borrowers to qualify for more than they are comfortable spending. However, this doesn't mean that is the suggested amount to spend. As the borrower, you know best the lifestyle you want to live-vacations, hobbies, entertainment, etc. There are three questions you must give thorough analysis to in the home buying process: 1. What monthly payment will I be comfortable with for my housing expense? 2. How much cash would I like to use for this transaction? 3. How long do I plan to own this property? The answers to these questions will really help your decisions when making this major purchase.
Tell us about a mortgage product that consumers may not be aware of?
I have been a proponent of Lender Paid Mortgage Insurance (LPMI) for years. When making a down payment less than 20%, most programs will require Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). PMI is insurance that you pay to protect the lender in the event that you default on the loan. The traditional method of paying PMI is to pay a monthly premium, effectively increasing the overall monthly payment. One important question I ask every client is what the goal is for the property being purchased. This answer, as well as other qualifying criteria , will help us best determine which program best fits your needs to meet your monthly payment and financial goals.
What can borrowers do to insure a smooth mortgage underwriting process?
Planning goes a long way. It is never too early to speak to a mortgage professional about your information and what to expect. I ask the important questions to help avoid any setbacks during the entire process, and work diligently to make sure your needs are satisfied. Some home shoppers have additional planning to complete before signing a contract to purchase a home. I help advise and guide you towards making the right steps to achieve your goals.
What provides you with the most satisfaction in your job as a Loan Officer?
Settlement day! Crossing the finish line with you and sharing in your achievement is what I truly take pride in. Our Digital Mortgage is such an incredible tool, and with so many borrowers preferring to complete the mortgage process electronically, it's a pleasure to attend the closing and meet you.
