Robert Cohan

President

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 national and regional 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.

I'm extremely impressed with Robert and his team. They took the time to listen carefully and worked to put me in the best position for a new home loan. The turnaround for responses to all my questions was very short. His availability was incredible; they were even open to calls after business hours which was more convenient for me. I highly recommend them to anyone.

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.
