“Mark Robbins was the first mortgage broker I knew that truly understood the opportunity for investors and lenders inherent in self-directed IRAs. As a mortgage professional, he has almost single-handedly lead the charge and championed the concept of using leverage to accelerate the growth of American retirement accounts, and I expect his efforts will soon be recognized on a national scale.”
“My seller financed 401K loan was due to expire on my 42 unit apartment building in Los Angeles. I was having a very difficult time finding a new non-recourse loan which is required by law for this type of real estate investment when using a retirement account to purchase real estate. I filled out paperwork, talked to lawyers, mortgage brokers, banks, Canadian insurance companies but no one could help me. I needed $1.4 million to repay the seller. Mark came through for me with a major bank providing me a non-recourse loan for the amount required at a competitive interest rate and a minimal amount of paperwork. I will be forever thankful for Mark’s efforts. I strongly recommend his services.”
“Mark Robbins is very professional and honest. His clients are his top priority. Mark helped me refinance my second home in Tiburon and got me a great rate at a time when rates were on the rise. A year later Mark helped me obtain financing for the construction of 16 town homes in San Jose. He did a superb job in making sure that I received the funds for this project as soon as I needed them. He also obtained the best interest rate for me that was available in the marketplace for this type of project at that time. I would highly recommend Mark’s mortgage banking assistance for your financing needs.”
Mark and I worked together in 2016-2017 when he helped me procure a loan for my company to refinance the debt existing on property I owned and provide enough capital to buy out my partner. His tenacity and perseverance were very much appreciated and instrumental in closing the loan.
It was a difficult land loan for 148 acres of semi-entitled property in Lake County, CA which is a rural area and not the easiest place to get financing for land. The loan was for $4.2MM, also not a small sum. I’m grateful to Mark and his company, Lending Resources Group, for helping me find a lender for this property.
Lending Resources Group helped us get exactly the right loan Solutions Property Management needed to refinance our commercial office building. We had a unique set of circumstances combined with new owners which made getting the right loan very important to us. Mark Robbins was able to sift through a large number of offers and pinpoint the perfect loan. We are very pleased with the results. Marks attention to detail made the process very smooth and kept us informed and helped us make important decisions that have given us a very positive experience. We will be using Lending Resources Group in the coming months to help navigate other financial needs. I recommend Lending Resources Group and Mark Robbins to anyone who needs these services. His experience and skills will make a difference you will appreciate for the entire length of your mortgage or loan.
“I was introduced to Mark Robbins and his company, Lending Resources Group, through a mutually known banker. I met with Mark in person to discuss our need to refinance the 56 acres known as Pacifica Highlands owned by myself and my partner. Mark showed himself to be very interested in helping us obtain the financing we needed. I knew I had the right guy for the job when Mark dissected the preliminary title report and outlined exactly what we needed to do to correct this so a lender wouldn’t be deterred from adverse title issues.
We needed between $1 -1.2MM to repay our 1st lien, cover closing costs and provide interest reserves for 1 year. I spoke with Mark on a daily basis for more than 3 months. I know how diligent he was in helping us find the right loan to gain better control of our property. There were a lot of ups and downs before he found the right economic fit to meet our needs. Mark and Lending Resources helped us obtain $1.3MM to refinance Pacifica Highlands. This put us in a better position to obtain the entitlements and permits that will make our property more valuable today. Thank you Mark for your diligent work.”
I want to thank you once again for helping me (and family) get this loan. Without your assistance not only would we have not pursued the purchase, we also would have not gotten a lender to give us a loan. You truly motivated me to reconsider the purchase by negotiating a substantially lower price so I could afford it, and then you didn’t give up on acquiring a loan even after two banks turned us down. Your diligence, professionalism and positive attitude makes you one of the most effective business people in this industry. Your compassion and commitment to giving your customers your very best is truly appreciated. I will never forget your words to me, “don’t let this get you sick, use it like a sword, and negotiate”, it was the moment that I shifted to make the dream of owning some country property come true. Seriously, consider the coaching industry, you would be a dynamite business coach. I will be back in touch with you soon so you can mentor me some more….smile. For sure, when we need to renegotiate this loan or any other loan for that matter! Can you tell how much I like you. In admiration and appreciation.
“Thanks for being there when my clients truly needed you. As you know, pre-qualifying a candidate accurately and then finding the funding in a timely fashion is so critical in helping someone find a home. It also is a function that requires someone I can count on to find the best deal under the best terms. After the first four packages you have coordinated for my clients, it’s time to say thanks for taking care of the people that have put their trust in me. It’s nice to know that there is someone like Mark in the mortgage business that puts the needs of the customer first.”
Mark: I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your professionalism and tenacity in assisting Gary Wuestenberg and myself with the successful close of escrow for 24 Aspen Circle, Graeagle CA. This was undoubtedly the most challenging escrow I have ever been involved with in my 30 years of experience as a Real Estate Agent, and it if hadn’t been for you and your close attention to detail it would never have happened. It was very refreshing for me to work with someone in the Lending Industry who had the passion and knowledge to put their client first and work through many hurdles to see that their goal was reached. I look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you.
Mark, you did “By far & by a mile” a better job than anyone that I have worked with in a very long time. Thank you so much for doing an excellent job. Good work Mark.
Without you hammering on your end Mark and doing what is necessary, Don would never have a chance of signing this quickly. Excellent work Mark!

The remarkable thing about Mark is his ability to quickly and accurately assess a problem, then develop and present a set of creative and appropriate solutions.
