Robert Ashby – Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist

ashby.jpgWe’ve been following Robert Ashby for a while on Active Rain, and his own site at  We took special notice of him when Brian Brady recommended him to us.  I like his style, he’s honest, direct, and he has a great message- he simply tells it like it is.  We’re happy to have Robert, as he is actually a Certified Mortgage Planner, as well as the owner of Solid Rock Mortgage in Florida, and he even has the time to fly planes for American Airlines- geeze, talk about a back up plan. 

Agent Genius loves great talent and we’re happy to bring you even more in the Mortgage arena!
