About Rob Fischer

My career in lending began with my first job out of college, after receiving a B.A. in Finance in 2004, quickly moving from Loan Officer to Senior Loan Officer and management.

Being born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I am committed to the community through ethical and responsible lending.  Working in many different markets, from rural areas to metro areas, allows me to have a great understanding of the differences and loan programs available in both areas.  I make it a focus to guide clients through the loan process, providing options with clear communication and transparency.

From first-time homebuyers to sophisticated investors my dedication to quick responses, availability, and thorough research of guidelines sets my service apart.  Homebridge allows me to go straight off of investor guidelines which cuts a lot of red tape and opens up more options for clients.

I truly enjoy my job and what I do – I think you’ll notice this in my professionalism and enthusiasm to provide a smooth transaction and closing.  Problem-solving and finding a solution for challenging situations are my passions, and there is no better feeling than helping a client achieve their dream of homeownership!

Zarik Khan - General Manager
“Rob helped my wife and I get pre-qualified for a loan that we can afford. After that we were able to look for a home in that price range where we can make payments comfortably. Along the process Rob took care of majority of the paperwork and communicated daily via email, text, and/or phone calls to help aid with getting papers together for our home loan. I would truly recommend Rob for anyone who is a first time buyer because he is patient and very informative to help through the process and explaining step by step. Looking forward to working with Rob in our future investments! Thank you Rob. Zarik and Shoyla. ”
Raghu Gurijala - Raghu Gurijala
“Rob has been recommended by my realtor I had a short time to close which lot of lenders said is not enough time to process the loan. Rob put me at ease the moment he contacted. He is great and easy to work with, knowledgable, prompt with responses and very helpful Highly recommend him ”
Avinal Dutt - Supply Chain Management
“Working with Rob was truly an amazing experience and he was the reason why we chose to stay with Homebridge Bank. We fell in love with a house we wanted without being pre-qualified, my real estate agent referred me to Rob, it was a Friday afternoon towards the end of the day. Rob understood that we did not want to lose this house at any cost, he worked with us over the phone to get us pre-qualified within minutes while my wife and I were on the road driving so we could put in an offer on the house. Rob worked with us through out the entire process, he answered his phone every time I called with a question and he made sure all our questions were answered fully before proceeding to the next step. Working with Rob felt like working with a close friend, he made sure he took care of us not just get our business but to build a relationship where we trusted him. I recommend working with Rob for everyone's home financial needs and I will definitely recommend him to all my friends and family. Thank you Rob for making our home buying experience so easy! ”
Karl Wirsing - Internal Communications Manager
“In the past few years, my wife and I have worked with Rob on two new mortgages and one refinance, and we have always been enormously pleased with his work. Rob is highly responsive, creative and resourceful, and his positive attitude makes him fun to work with--no matter the time pressure. We couldn't be happier with Rob and all the amazing work he's done for us! ”
Maressa Mittemiller - RN
“I have worked with Rob Fischer twice now in securing a home loan and he is the best. He is patient and kind ,both with first time home owners and those that have been through the process before. He answers all questions and concerns honestly and promptly. He is also easy to reach for those of us who work non traditional hours. Another RN recommended him that had used him previously. She told me he came highly recommended by others and I would not be disappointed. After working with him multiple times I would recommend him to anyone. He is such a pleasure to work with!”
Brandon Frazier
“I fully recommend Rob for your financial needs. With his prompt and timely responses my first time home buying experience went as smoothly as it possibly could. Very professional and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend his services. ”
David Bartolomeo - Engineer
“Rob was awesome to work with. He has closed 5 home loans for me and is always thorough, knowledgeable and helpful. He also does very well closing loans super fast for us. I definitely recommend using him for friends and family or anyone who might be in the market to purchase or refinance. ”
Firdaus Herryanddhy - Mortgage Client
“Rob was great to work with. More than technical knowledge, I give high remarks to those who show genuine passion in their will to help others not only succeed, but also looking out for what's best for them. Rob had both. I've always felt like I wasn't too far away from help, and never felt hesitant to ask something. He always made himself open for me and my wife to contact him if we were to have questions and such. Not all is perfect, but perfection is few and far in between... if not, ever. There were times I wish there was more of a heads up on what we had to do and get prepared for, so that we weren't so pressured to get it done in the little time we were given. Other than that, experience is mostly positive. If I had the choice to work with Rob again, I'd definitely would. Thanks for all the help you've given us. ”
Kenlee Ducoing - 2nd Grade Teacher
“Rob did an amazing job getting us a loan for our home with a good interest rate! He communicated brilliantly and was always able to "talk me off the edge" during the trying process of buying a home! =)”
Jason stevens
“My wife and i worked with rob for a few years. He helped guide us to being home owners again. He took calls late at night and on the weekends even when he was on vacation. We now have our home and will call rob when its time for another one. He is a great man to work with and is very patient. Rob is one of those guys who will work hard and get the job done.”
Gayle Cox - Owner of Cox Printing & Signs - Bothell, WA
“Rob did a fantastic job obtaining a home mortgage for my husband and I when we purchased our townhome. He has super knowledge and amazing follow-through. He always answers his cell phone too! Great at getting the job done!”
Amie Borchert - Associate Category Manager
“After a really bad experience trying to refinance with another mortgage company, I was given Rob's information and we never looked back. Rob went above and beyond to help us get our home refinanced to pay off some very high interest rate debt. Knowing that we had already been drug through the mud for over 2 months with another mortgage company, Rob helped us fast track our refinance and at a lower rate than another mortgage company had quoted us. He was always available to answer my questions, whether it be via email, text or phone call. He was able to get a signer to our home on a Saturday morning so we could close on time, and an appraiser that knew our neighborhood, which really helped get the value we knew our home would hold. He really was just fantastic to work with. We are looking forward to working with Rob again! ”
Joel P
“I was having some trouble with my original lender as they would not return my calls or emails in a timely manner, and we all know how quickly some of the properties in the area sell. The sellers Realtor noticed the issue and recommended that I give Rob a call. I thought well why not. Ten minutes later I was pre-approved and signing an offer letter with no contingencies. 28 days later I walked out of the Closing Office having purchased a property before it hit the market. Rob worked well with the Realtor, the Closing was seamless, and Homebridge Bank saved me several hundred dollars per month with a lower interest rate thus a lower mortgage. I highly recommend Rob and Homebridge Bank, give them a call!”
