Our team at Balboa Thrift and Loan appreciates the brokers we work with all throughout San Diego County. We are proud to work alongside such successful and proactive community members like Rob Brodt. 

Q & A with Rob Brodt

1) Rob, describe your job in 1-2 sentences.
"My job is to assess my customers short term and long term needs and facilitate the best commercial loan as it relates to rate, term, and prepayment. I can also assist with invoice financing, purchase order financing, equipment loans and lines of credit."
2) What are the top three qualities you look for in a lender?
  • "The ability to quickly determine if we have a deal or not. 
  • Flexibility on both rate and credit criteria. 
  • General follow through."
3) Why do you work with Balboa Thrift and Loan Commercial Real Estate?
"All reasons listed in question 2!"
4) What do you do outside of work?
"Does hanging out with my kids count as a hobby? Playing hoops, some golf, watching and attending SDSU football and hoops games, and of course the Chargers!"
5) Do you have any words of wisdom to share?
"Always put the customer first. If you can't help a client, give them guidance as to what they need to do moving forward. Advise the client as if you were the property owner. It can't always be about the money!"
