Vice President of Mortgage Lending
As Vice President of Mortgage Lending, Jesse uses his extensive experience with complex financials to provide clients with expert guidance and customized home loan products.
A Southern California native, Jesse brings 15 years of experience in mortgage lending with hands-on knowledge of the wholesale, correspondent and retail lending channels. The “Dynamic Duo” of Jesse and Robert have worked together since 2003. Jesse specializes in analyzing complex financials, jumbo home loan products, and pre-approval preparation in competitive real estate markets.
Jesse has extensive, first-hand knowledge of the historical and current trends of the Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Orange County, and San Diego real estate markets, leading to more than $400 million in residential financing. Prior to joining Carlyle Financial, Jesse was awarded “Associate of the Year” by Wells Fargo Bank in 2005.
In addition to his ongoing support of Carlyle Financial’s philanthropic endeavors, Jesse makes a donation to the ALS Association on behalf of his clients for every loan he closes. When he isn’t busy running Mortgage Lending at the Carlyle Financial Beverly Hills office, Jesse spends time with family and friends, cooking, and adding new stamps to his passport.
Carlyle Financial has an incredible team, both in terms of service and knowledge of the mortgage industry. Not only do they find you the best loan options possible, they make the process go very smoothly. The team is extremely organized and responsive. I couldn't have been happier.
I've purchased two homes with Carlyle financial. The first was a triplex investment. I was told by multiple people that myself and my mom couldn't get a loan on a $1.6 million investment unless we put down 40%. Robert was the only person who was able to find us a loan and not only that, got it for about 1% less than we were expecting with putting down 30%. Because of this, when I moved I went immediately to Carlyle. I was able to get a loan quickly and their method of dragging files into a website was sooooo much easier than emailing them all as I have had to do in the past. I couldn't recommend them more.
I refinance often so I have a good understanding of what it takes to get things done. Robert and his team were fast, efficient, and got me the best possible rate around.
Jesse Collins performed a miracle by helping us close on our first house in 8 days. 8 DAYS! Right down to the wire, Jesse was efficient, professional, extremely helpful, and most importantly, provided THE most competitive rates around.
I just refinanced on my home in San Francisco and Robert at Carlyle Financial made it possible. If you are buying a home or refinancing, use Robert and his team.
Robert and the Carlyle Financial team make the financing process understandable. They help you overcome any issues, they explain what's going on, they are very patient throughout the whole process. They truly are on your team. I was amazed at how smart, diligent, friendly, creative and dedicated Robert and his team are. They are committed to helping you and getting a deal done.
I have worked with numerous mortgage brokers in the past, and I will not use anyone else in the future.
