Senior Mortgage Banker/Partner
VIP Mortgage * Tucson, Ariz.
Rob Purvis's mortgage banking career began in
2007 after seven years pitching for the Chicago
White Sox. His love and passion for helping others
catapulted him very quickly to the top as one of the
country's top mortgage originators. Centered on
Rob's small-town, Midwest upbringing and
philosophy, Rob repeatedly asks, "How can I help you?" Not, "How can
you help me?" Applying this philosophy to the entire MVP Team has
enabled them to earn and grow relationships with realtors, business
owners and customers because of the level of trust they each put into
the team's beliefs.
