December Challenge - Rob Spinosa -
2021 - Missed talking with him!!!

   Every single time I get the chance to speak with Rob Spinosa, I enjoy his continual spirit of adventure. And, every time, I learn new ideas that he uses to better serve his Clients.

What innovation is on top for Rob now? He has started his own YouTube Channel. You may or may not know that he started out as a musician! His channel is called Rock 'N' Roll Real Estate.

Rob plans to use each video to explain particular aspects of Mortgage situations. His first video is called “Divorce Buyout Refinancing Explained”.

And, YES, he is playing guitar to start the lesson!! He said he wants to combine his love of music with his love for delivering excellent support for his Mortgage Clients.

A REQUEST FROM LYNN: Rob needs 100 subscribers to reach another working level with his channel. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if his first 100 Subscribers all came from our own ActiveRain community???? Click on over to Rock 'N' Roll Real Estate and become a Subscriber!

And, YES, he is playing guitar to start the lesson!! He said he wants to combine his love of music with his love of giving excellent support for his Mortgage Clients.

As he spoke, Rob stressed his support for plain speaking! He thinks excessive use of jargon makes it difficult for the public to get clear answers. He gave an example of a person on a conference call with him not understanding the any of the comments from the other Mortgage professional on the call. Immediately after the conference call ended, he called back and spoke to the Client again, this time in plain English. His “translation" from jargon allowed the person to understand completely! 

Rob joined Guaranteed Rate after successful years with another company. He sings Guaranteed Rate’s praises as does our Atlanta Homes ODAT Realty preferred Lender, Atlanta AR Member Rodney Mason.

 Rob’s current professional goal – in his own words – is as follows:

“I provide a mortgage experience that is easy to understand,
educational and financially beneficial. I have an understanding, optimism and passion for what I do that I love to share with others.”

“Since 1999, I have been a licensed mortgage originator in California.  I live, work and own real estate in Marin County, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, but can originate loans state-wide*.  I'm a husband, father, and an active member of the community, currently serving as the president of two homeowner's associations, and as treasurer of the Tamalpa Runners, the largest running club in northern California.  A great number of my past clients, neighbors, peers and colleagues have put their trust in me and I take that responsibility very seriously.  Ask around and check my references here on the internet --- I have worked hard to come highly recommended and it is my goal to be the best mortgage broker in Marin.”

*By “statewide”, Rob (NMLS:  22343) explained that he is able to meet the home loan needs of all Californians in addition to being very active locally assisting residents of Marin County, in cities including; Sausalito, Marin City, Mill Valley, Corte Madera, Tiburon, Belvedere, Larkspur, Greenbrae, Kentfield, Ross, San Anselmo, Fairfax, San Rafael, Novato, Nicasio, San Geronimo, Woodacre and West Marin.

And - outside of work? 
Another interesting facet of Rob’s personality is his devotion via sport to actively support charities that seek to find a cure for Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), the affliction which claimed his mother in 2010. He said that as a mountaineer, he “stood atop some of the highest peaks in the world, and as a competitive triathlete I have completed the prestigious Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, on multiple occasions.”

Rob will tell you that when it comes to racing a triathlon, fighting the War on ALS, or closing a Client’s home loan, he is "in it to the finish”.

About ActiveRain?

When asked about ActiveRain, Rob said he “…would be hard pressed to explain ALL the benefits of AR. When he joined, he said he had no idea of the DEPTH of the community. He thought it would be 'a good thing to do' for business. Now, he explains, AR brought him much, much more.

"I have developed friendships here in ActiveRain that are very important to me," he said. Active Rain has been the woodshed in which I've developed my voice.”

ActiveRain members can help Rob develop his new 2022 “voice”.
