About Bob

Throughout my 20+ year career, I’ve been dedicated to providing my clients with the optimal home financing experience. Working with everyone from first-time homebuyers to second home and investment property purchases, I’ve established a reputation for enthusiasm, expertise and reliability while consistently ranking among Mortgage Executive Magazine’s Top 1% of Mortgage Originators in America.

I was inspired to become a mortgage originator after the bewildering but fascinating experience of financing my family’s first home. With that pivotal experience in mind, my main objective to this day is to educate borrowers and ensure they are informed and comfortable about every step of the mortgage process.

From our first contact to closing and beyond, I’ll always be available to answer your questions and resolve issues to ensure the home financing process is as stress-free as possible. My favorite part of this job is sharing my clients’ excitement about purchasing a home and making it a positive experience. I can’t wait to do that for you, too.

Before joining CrossCountry Mortgage, I was a vice president of mortgage lending at another one of the nation’s larger retail mortgage lenders. I hold a Master of Business Administration from DePaul University and a Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Management from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children and watching them grow up. I love to travel and have an affinity for water and warm weather activities.
