Meet Bob

I work in my clients' best interest, with the highest standards of service, professionalism and ethics.

Since 1998, I've been able to build my business based on referrals from satisfied customers and relationships with professional partners. I'm delighted to work at Bell, a company with a 135-year commitment to service and community.

My team and I want to make the home financing process enjoyable for you. Whether you're purchasing a home or refinancing an existing mortgage,  you deserve a smooth transaction and an authentic experience. 

I have worked with Bob Merrill for many years. As a closing agent, I have witnessed over the years that Bob’s clients always show up to closing informed, happy and confident. Bob is the ultimate mortgage professional.

How We Work

Work with our team at Bell, and you'll find:

  • Good deals – Because we have access to a broad range of bank and investor outlets for home mortgages, and the loans we originate perform exceptionally well, we have preferential access to the best selection of rates and programs for nearly any situation.
  • Efficiency – Our approved loan packages typically go to the closing location early, so you have ample time to review your numbers prior to closing.
  • Process – Many lenders outsource essential parts of the approval and closing process: processing, appraisal management, and even final funding. With our in-house processes, we control all these elements for our clients, creating speed, accuracy, on-time closings and happy customers. This is a people business, and the people guiding your mortgage transaction are all here, under one roof.
  • Communication – We communicate consistently throughout the process, so you will never be in the dark. Instead, you'll have a clear roadmap, from application to closing.
  • Education – Choosing the right home loan is about understanding your options. That’s why we never push a particular program, rate or fee structure. We lay out your options, help you understand and interpret them, and empower you to make the best decision.
