Rob Gillon has been in the mortgage banking industry for the past 30 years and has worked with several mortgage banking firms. After developing great relationships with many realtors, Rob was introduced to the builder loan business where he specialized in tracts of newly constructed homes. As a direct lender and broker Rob became expert at the delivery of all different types of loan products.
Throughout his career he learned the art of relationship development as it related to transacting mortgage closings for both his agents and the borrowers themselves. When he opened his own mortgage brokerage, at the urging of his wife, in 1999 he created the tagline of “Relationship Lending” for his company Armour Home Mortgage. At that time Rob left the arena of builder mortgage loans to focus again on the development of his realtor business. Expanding his business into almost all counties of Southern California the business flourished based on the relationship approach to his business.
As the requirements of the market changed, and the need for deep control of the transactions became more necessary, Rob decided to join New American Funding in 2011. New American funding offers the control that the realtor community demands as a DIRECT LENDER. With the capacity of New American Funding behind him, along with his sincere selling approach, the marriage of company and top producer cannot fail! Even after 30 years in the mortgage industry Rob still thoroughly enjoys each and every transaction and working with buyers ranging from first time home buyers to even the most experienced real estate investors.
Known for his intensity and passion in representing his borrowers, Rob draws upon his competitive nature from his days as a championship caliber baseball player. Rob obtained his real estate salesperson license when he was 18 years old and then received his degree in Economics from Chapman University.
