About Bob Bless

Your mortgage is personal, and I understand that.

Consistently ranked as one of the top producers in the country for the past 20-plus years, I have helped thousands of borrowers finance properties of all sizes.

I’m naturally detailed and numbers oriented, and I am intimately familiar with lending guidelines. If there is a loan that other people can’t get done, it usually comes to me. I have a reputation for knowing how to work successfully with clients who have complex financials or require nonconventional loans, as well as those who need traditional loans. I thoroughly educate borrowers throughout the mortgage transaction so they fully understand their options and feel comfortable with their chosen loan program.

I’m not your typical loan officer. I worked for many years as an electrical engineer and lived all over the world, adapting to different cultures, customs and people. I am fluent in both English and Spanish.

It is my goal to help people understand their finances better not just today but in the future. I have the experience necessary to ensure you get the mortgage rate and terms you deserve. I will keep you up-to-date on the application status and work with your realtor and lawyer to ensure your home purchase goes smoothly.

Whether you are a first-time home buyer, looking to refinance, upgrade, build or invest, call me at The Provident Group, for the right mortgage, right now: 847-625-5555
