Robert Cohan is driven by a belief that solutions aren’t just found – they are carefully crafted. As President of Carlyle Financial, he ensures that the firm’s mortgage solutions are elegantly simple, yet flexible enough to provide custom options for our clients.
Robert is an experienced mortgage professional and industry innovator. He developed his passion for providing extraordinary service for extraordinary clients as a top mortgage professional for several national banks, including Bank of America, Washington Mutual (now J.P. Morgan Chase) and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, where he became the first loan officer to open a mortgage-only storefront on Canon Drive in the heart of the Beverly Hills triangle.
After working with hundreds of clients at multiple money-center banks, Robert saw the limitations of the big bank mono-channel model and developed his own lending and service philosophy. His trailblazing approach led to the founding of Carlyle Financial, where he could continue his commitment to customized home loans while changing the way his clients experienced the mortgage process. He is based in the San Francisco headquarters at One Market Plaza.
Robert has been recognized as a leading jumbo mortgage expert in The Wall Street Journal, Business Insider, Investor’s Business Daily, and many other publications. He is also active in his community, committing time and resources to causes that align with his philanthropic values. When he isn’t helping clients structure their next home, you can find Robert on the basketball court coaching youth league kids on their jump shot.
From beginning to end...we found the team capable and committed to delivering our family an excellent outcome - which they did! We needed to work through some complex issues, and the team always stayed ahead of them with suggestions and advice which kept the process moving. Great experience - highly recommend! Thank you!
Jesse Collins provided me with a very detailed breakdown with many options and financial scenarios over e-mail. We were able to meet in person the following week to go over these in further detail. I had a million questions and he was able to go through them one by one, going over pros and cons. Great Service and Knowledge. Well recommended.
Robert Cohan has done it again! We have worked with Robert for YEARS and each time it is a pleasure. The feeling of confidence and security that we have each time we entrust them with a new mortgage is beyond compare.
We had a wonderful experience with Carlyle Financial from start to finish! Robert was extremely knowledgeable and able to move the process along very quickly for us. We were also very impressed with Robert's willingness to call and explain things in great detail. We highly recommend Carlyle Financial!
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.
