About Robert Spiegel

Hello, my name is Robert Spiegel. I got into the mortgage/real estate world after I tried to buy my first home a long, long time ago. As a buyer, I discovered that lenders didn’t take time to explain anything to me, nor did they make me feel like I was worth their time. I felt forced to make financing decisions without any guidance. Many, many years later I have built an amazing business where I get to help awesome people. However, I have discovered that most people make decisions about financing their home in a vacuum, asking nothing more than interest rate. There is a lot more to financing a home than the rate, and this is where I can make the biggest difference for my clients. I’m here to guide you, ask questions, and create strategies based on your financial plan…major life events like getting married, having children, paying for college and/or private school tuitions, building wealth, current and future debt loads, starting a business, retirement, downsizing or upsizing. Our relationship is a long term proposition, not a one shot get ‘em in and out the door. Ask any of the Realtors and Financial Advisors that I work with and they’ll tell you my approach is holistic and I can help my clients build wealth through real estate. I will show you how a home can be more than just another monthly payment! When I’m not working, I like to spend time at my home in Marfa, Texas. I'm an unwilling fitness buff, amateur chef, and self-proclaimed foodie.

They were with me every step of the way. - Elaine M. Alpine, TX
Robert and Karen made the entire process as effortless as possible. The communication was extremely efficient and I felt completely in the loop as to what stage my application is in. They were ever ready to answer any questions or concerns. The advice I received was very valuable in helping me make my decision. Right after my first interaction, I did not even consider going to Chase or Bank of America where I do my banking. I have already referred a relative of mine to do business with them. - Muzammil Z. Houston, TX
It was very hands-on and they made the process very easy and straight forward. - Mauricio M. Houston, TX
I’ve used Robert for my past 2 home purchases. He is such a pleasure to work with. He helps explain things in simple terminology and is available whenever we had questions. For my first house, he helped educate me on the process and helped explain the difference in what mortgage i could get approved for versus the mortgage i should get so I wouldn’t be house poor. I refer everyone I know who is looking to purchase a house to speak with Robert. - Kevin M.
Very thorough and timely updates. Super personable too! We closed on our original closing date without having to push back. That’s an amazing feat by itself in the real estate industry! - Patrick J. Richmond, TX
