About Rob Levy

Rob Levy was recently asked, “What drives you in this business?” Rob’s response was, “I have a responsibility to take care of my clients. They are entrusting me with what is likely the biggest investment of their lives. So I am focused on taking care of them and doing the right thing. If my team and I do that, we’ll have a positive outcome.”

It’s with this approach that Rob has consistently been a top 1% producer since 1985. Rob originally intended to launch a career in commercial real estate out of college when he was introduced to the mortgage industry by a friend in the residential real estate business. He was instantly hooked.

Today, Rob has built his business and reputation such that if Rob states the proposed client is well qualified, it carries a lot of weight. This often translates into clients winning in a bidding war environment. With well over 30 years of helping homeowners, experience counts more than ever in today’s economy.

When Rob is not helping homeowners, he likes to spend time with his wife of 35 plus years, Leslie. They enjoy playing tennis and experiencing the local restaurant scene in addition to cooking. Rob and Leslie are also parents of two grown daughters.

Speaking of restaurants, Rob is also the owner of one of Pasadena’s finest establishments, The Raymond restaurant. But it’s not the excellent classic American cuisine that Rob is most proud of. It is Rob’s dedication to his community, specifically serving on the board of Union Station Homeless Services. Rob serves on the Housing Innovation Sub Committee, where they look for unique ways of housing people in need that are not the norm. Rob is also the creator of the “Masters of Taste event which features the area’s finest restaurants on the historic Rosebowl field. Over 2,000 people attend the annual event where 100% of the proceeds go to the Union Station charity.” However, in today’s Covid-19 environment, Rob has the very same star chefs and bartenders who are currently out of work featured at The Raymond. They can continue to work and raise funds to serve Union Station Homeless Services. The events have been so successful that they have garnered national press.

What Our Customers Say About Me

“To my knowledge both Rob Levy and Patty Cabral worked on my mortgage. I believe Patty took on most of the weight since she's was the person I reached out to day by day. She was very attentive and always there for me when I needed help and clarification. I would like to take this time to also apologize to her because she truly went above and beyond to help make this loan happen. There were countless complications with escrow and the seller's side during the home purchase but she definitely pulled through and made it all happen. She was pretty much running the whole show kicking everyone's butt to make everything go by as smoothly as possible. I loved how she had a solution to every bumpy road and surprise escrow and the seller's side threw at us. I was very happy with homebridge and I will definitely refer you to anyone looking to purchase a home. I look forward to the future and thank you all for giving me the opportunity to work with you. Thank you so much for making me a homeowner. ”

“Rob Levy and his team were great partners throughout our loan process. We had an excellent experience working with Homebridge on our previous home purchase, so it was nice to be able to call Rob when were ready for a new home and received a fast response. Rob was clear and accurate in his estimates about what type of loan we could qualify for. This gave us confidence to make our best offer. Once Escrow started, Rob and his team kept us informed every step of the way. I used the Homebridge secure web portal to upload all the initial documents, and then received regular emails for questions and updates. We were able to reach Rob and his team by phone when needed, and always received a fast response. Needless to say, our loan was approved and we closed Escrow in good time. I would highly recommend Rob Levy for a great loan experience.”
“Rob was one of the best lenders I've worked with. From the start Rob and his team were very honest, punctual and calming. His numbers were very reasonable and actually less than others. He didn't do a bait and switch when another lender did at the last minute and we pulled the loan from the other lender, we applied with Rob and he quickly closed our loan. We are in the process of purchasing another property and won't even consider looking elsewhere.”

“I have worked with three different lenders in previous home purchases and refis prior to being recommended to Rob Levy. None compare to the level of service, transparency, timeliness, and ease of communication as I've received from Rob and his team. I highly recommend working with Rob at Homebridge Financial for a home loan. He makes a stressful and intense process very manageable.”
Roy K. Jul-20
“Rob and his team were great! They made this stressful process very easy and straightforward.”
ANDREW A. Jul-20
“Rob was very professional and responded to my questions in a timely manner. I did have a question on the closing docs and I didn't hear back from him. It was minor, but I was still curious of the charge. I was happy to hear that the appraisal would be waived, however there was an appraisal feel for like $50.00? I was just curious why I was charged that amount, but didn't hear back as to why. I was very impressed overall and I would definitely do business again with Mortgagesat. What prevented me from scoring 10's in the survey, dealt with my question going unanswered.”
Zachary D. Jul-20
“Rob was fantastic. He helped guide me through every step of the process and made the loan process smooth for me. He gave me regular updates, answered all my questions, and gave me perspective to my place in the loan process at all times. He was able to get better loan terms than we initially thought, all the closing fees were as described at the beginning, and the uploading of documents was very efficient. I would be happy to work with Rob again.”
“Rob was thorough, efficient , and always there to clarify, update and , answer any questions we had. He got us the best possible mortgage rate. Would definitely work with Rob again.”
Matthew S. Jun-20

Andrew and Abigail Meschke - Homeowners
“As first time home buyers, my wife and I were anxious about our lack of knowledge and experience. Fortunately, we had Rob to guide us through every step of the process. He and his staff answered our countless questions and helped put our minds at ease. We had a wonderful experience with Rob and highly recommend him.”
Anthony M. Sepci - Partner, KPMG LLP
“I had a fantastic experience getting a mortgage with Rob and his team at Homebridge Bank. By trade, I am a consultant in the Banking and Financial Services industries with a lot of in-depth knowledge of the mortgage industry and fully appreciate the significant changes made to the underwriting and fulfillment processes post the 2008-2009 mortgage crisis. In addition, my asset and compensation structure are not fluid, which added to the complexity of the deal. Rob’s team was great, efficient, and flexible in communication forums, largely availability around the clock to address my needs. I was extremely happy with the loan pricing and both the patience and the flexibility shown when I had to extend the closing a couple of times related to last minute issues involving the seller. Overall, I am a very satisfied Homebridge Bank customer!”

Matthew Labyorteaux
“Rob came very highly recommended from several friends and acquaintances in our work/school circles. We had a fairly confusing and complicated loan structure that was anything but straight-forward, and Rob was the man to make it happen for our situation. We had several refi's as well as a sale to factor in, and even though it felt several times like it just was too complicated, Rob's calm demeanor and stay the course attitude helped tremendously. I would absolutely call on him for our next purchase in the future, and can recommend him as someone that is a pleasure to work with. ”

Rob shepherded us through the entire process, getting us to a speedy loan approval at a great rate, all the while having to work around the Thanksgiving holiday and a fire that was dangerously close to our new home. Throughout the process he was courteous and professional and a real pleasure to work with. We would recommend him to anyone!”
Andrea Davis - Founder/Director
“Rob and his team made a very simple process out of a complicated loan request. Wells Fargo Bank Home Mortgage had requested endless documents over a two-month period of time and eventually denied my request for a loan, so I asked a wonderful realtor team, Steve and Lisa Haussler, for a recommendation of a different lender. They referred me to Rob Levy. With the same financials, Rob confidently worked out a creative plan to help me accomplish my goals. Rob's team, especially Claudia Witkoff, made all the loan application paperwork very, very simple to accomplish and communicated quickly and respectfully at each step. I am so thankful for a pleasant and successful process. ”
Jonelle Pickett
“I am delighted to be starting the new year off with a refi due made possible by the speedy and efficient efforts of Rob and his team.

Carter Prescott - Finance Principal Manager
“Rob and his team were amazing! Not only was he available unexpectedly and at the last minute to help us get our loan started so that we could put in an offer on a home, he and his team worked diligently to make sure that our loan was approved and funded on time. He was excellent to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a home loan. I wouldn't trust my lending needs to anyone other than Rob in the future. ”
Ann M. Pibel - new homeowner
“Rob and his staff were absolutely outstanding! Rob was knowledgeable about the challenges of my particular situation, and was able to find a lender for me within just a few days.

The seller of the property hoped to close within a certain time frame, and Homebridge Bank accommodated both of us. I would recommend Rob Levy and the team at Homebridge without reservation. ”

Allison Allyn
“Rob is fantastic! This was our first time buying a home and we were extremely nervous about it. Rob walked us through each step and patiently answered all of our questions. He helped us get the lowest interest rate possible, and was very kind and a pleasure to work with. A major reason we were able to get the home that we did was because we had Rob as a broker, and he has an excellent reputation in the community -- the seller's realtor loves working with him, and knew he would able to close escrow in less than 30 days, which really helped us get our foot in the door with our offer. Thank you, Rob!”

There were several times throughout the process where our chances of landing the house seemed bleak, and each time Rob found a way to keep us moving forward. Thanks to his diligence and creativity, my family and I are on our dream street. There are some people that simply find a way to get things done. Rob is one of those people. There's no better guy to have on your side. ”
Annika Huston - Annika Huston
“ My husband and I came across our dream house and knew we would have to move fast in this LA housing market. Rob Levy and team were able not only able to secure us a loan at a great rate, but do so under the pressure of a 21 day escrow. He and his team are extremely generous and kind, organized and efficient and truly determined to help make wild dreams come true! Rob helped us become first time homebuyers in 2014 and this year helped land us our forever home. We couldn’t be more grateful. ”
Ryan Izell - Chief Program Officer
“Rob and his team were a pleasure to work with. His rates were competitive and customer service was excellent. He provided clear, easy to understand, information from the beginning and worked quickly to provide a pre-qualification letter, and later to ensure we met a tight loan contingency timeline. Rob and his team communicated with us throughout the process to provide updates, walked us through each of the steps, and ensured our loan was secured on time.”
Ellen Caldwell - Professor
“Rob and his great team were easy to work with, got me a competitive rate, and most importantly processed my paperwork to close my deal quickly and efficiently!
