About Us

RoBUS Mortgage is a direct lender and full service brokerage.  We can either fund the loan ourselves fast, or we can shop it around to make sure we have the best pricing on any loans that don’t fit into our investor’s parameters.  Therefore we can do loans for self-employed borrowers that don’t show much taxable income, low credit, jumbo, higher loan to values, etc.  We also specialize in VA and FHA loans, and we average about 12 days from application to clear to close on all conventional and government loans.  We leverage technology and low overhead to pass savings on to our clients to ensure that they are getting the lowest rate possible in the market.  We are a small company so you can cut out all the red tape and bureaucracy that you deal with at bigger lenders and banks.
