Bobby Sillers

Residential Mortgage Loan Originator

NMLS 213222

Bobby has lived in Dallas all his life, growing up in the home that his parents and grandparents grew up in. His wife, Judy, co-owns Park Cities Events, a wedding planning business, and their son uses his finance degree from the University of Georgia as a credit analyst for a local bank. Daughter Rebecca is studying supply chain management in the textiles department at North Carolina State University. In his free time, Bobby mentors a student at UT Dallas and is an avid tennis player.
He has been in the mortgage business for more than 12 years. His background in selling business software applications for the financial and manufacturing industries honed two important skills that have contributed to his success. He learned to be a good, “active” listener and to put the results of those fact-finding conversations into an easily understood format – be that in a conversation or in a spreadsheet. That’s vital when it comes to creating the best mortgage product for each client.
“My goal is to continue to do ‘make sense’ loans for my clients and my client’s friends through referrals,” he says.
