Bob is my preferred lender. He was my loan officer on my first purchase and where I send my clients. He is thorough, creative, highly responsive and flexible. Bob responds to challenges with solutions and I love that! You are well prepared but not overwhelmed when dealing with Bob, which is key especially for my first time home buyers. Aside from being highly skilled at his job, he is also a good friend and great father.

Jessie and Barbara M.
Thank you so much for going above and way beyond what anyone should have done with my mortgage process.
After all the banks I spoke with, you were the most attentive and responsive – even though I truly did not initially know what I was asking you to do!!
Your patience and humor through it all made such a pleasant experience – thank you!
I will always call you with home purchases in the future (sorry if you didn’t want to hear that- Ha!) as well as recommend you with highest honor!!
Years ago, Bob saved me a lot of money by helping me through a refinance of my home mortgage. More recently, he took considerable time to research the numbers once again, and to help me understand that refinancing a second time would not work to my benefit.
Bob did not charge me for his time. Bob has real integrity. He cares, is creative, thorough and has an amazingly positive outlook.
I highly recommend Bob and will plan on working with him in the future.
We would like to express our appreciation for the amazing service that we received from you. My wife and I were kept well informed throughout the whole process any questions we had were answered promptly and thoroughly. Thanks, for a great experience.

When Bob is not busy with mortgage financing, he enjoys spending time with his three sons (two of whom now have young families of their own). Bob also enjoys racquet sports, spending time at the “Y,” visiting parks and museums, and music. He also devotes time such causes as Hands On Nashville, The United Way, and the Room at the Inn in downtown Nashville.
