Meet the Team
Bob Neilson founded Castle Funding Corp. (NMLS #289925) in 1989, building on his experience as a top mortgage loan originator since his graduation from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1979. He has since welcomed his daughter, Alyssa Soles, to the Castle Funding team as a mortgage loan originator. When they aren't doing loans, you might find them boating, biking up the Ventura coast, or chasing after Alyssa's two active sons.
Bob and Alyssa understand the importance that their clients place on their homes, and value the confidence they invest in them to obtain the best financing available. Bob has always followed the motto, "Treat every client as if they are your most important client." This mentality has led Bob's clientele to call for advice in other financial areas as well, as they value his “hands-on” approach and attention to detail. Virtually all of the business that Bob receives is referred by satisfied clients.
The Castle Funding team has developed a number of techniques to assist clients in improving their credit scores and thus qualify for premium financing rates, which would have been otherwise unavailable to them. These strategies have saved their clients untold sums over the years. Due to the use of automation that most lenders employ in their loan approval process, Castle Funding's personal approach to each of their clients’ individual needs sets them apart in the mortgage industry.
