I have worked with many mortgage companies before, and Carlyle Financial in Beverly Hills really takes their job seriously, and does it with exceptional excellence and pride. Thanks so much for your caring and your expertise.
We made a home purchase with a jumbo mortgage with Carlyle Financial. Robert and Katheryn are fantastic to work with. They are very knowledgeable, professional and responsive.
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.
Robert and Devin provided outstanding service and guidance throughout the entire refinance process. I would highly recommend this team.
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 highly recommend Carlyle Financial!
Meet Our Founder & Managing Director Robert Cohan
Robert Cohan spent more than a decade as a top mortgage professional for several national banks, including Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and Washington Mutual (now J.P. Morgan Chase). Robert has always been an innovative leader in the mortgage industry.
Among his many accomplishments:
- funded more than $1 billion in residential loans
- earned the “President’s Club” distinction multiple times as one of the top 1% of loan producers nationwide
- became the first loan officer to open a mortgage-only storefront retail branch in Beverly Hills during his tenure at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage
- established or supported numerous community outreach programs
Believing that both his industry work and his community work could be improved, Robert set out to provide his clients with the best possible home loan options in a responsible way. He found a solution in mortgage banks.
Mortgage banks offered more home loan options than retail banks and were direct lenders who maintained control over the entirety of the home loan process, unlike brokers. Robert realized that mortgage banking allowed him to first provide clients with the widest variety of loan packages. And, coupled with the right technology, mortgage banks could add significant efficiency to the mortgage process.
Robert responded by founding Carlyle Financial, a mortgage bank with a client-first philosophy, that offers the efficient in-house application processing of a retail bank and the extensive home loan solutions offered by mortgage brokers. Robert and his team are committed to remaining at the forefront of technology in order to deliver better solutions more quickly.
In 2015 we opened our most recent branch in San Francisco, CA. Our team is looking forward to expanding the community that inspired Carlyle Financial.
Robert is a member of the California Association of Mortgage Professionals and the Mortgage Bankers Association of America. He attended California State University, Northridge, with a focus in Finance.
