Our History – A Passion for Helping Homebuyers Thrive

Working for a ‘big bank’ for 17 years, Robert Bates saw first-hand the struggle it sometimes took for homebuyers to find and access fair, quality loans that met their needs. He thought to himself, “There must be a better way for me to help Harrisonburg residents accomplish their dreams.” So, he left his job with a big, corporate bank to start his own mortgage company in 2001. By having full autonomy through his own company, Robert realized, he could take more of a hands-on approach to loan service provision and make a bigger difference in the lives of his clients.


Harrisonburg’s Mortgage Specialists

Now, with over 30 years of industry experience under his belt, Robert continues to live his passion and has helped to train dozens of Harrisonburg-based loan officers. Among those he has trained is his own son, David Bates, who has been working with him in loan provisions since 2016. Together, Robert and David represent PRMI in Harrisonburg, Virginia. They are backed by a team of some of the region’s most capable underwriters, processors, and other in-house support staff, who have all made it their mission to help you get the best loan possible for your purchase or refinance.


A Top-Notch Team At Your Service

Working together for over five years now, Robert and David have developed a stellar reputation as a team here in Harrisburg for the quality service they provide and their dedication to customer service. Robert and David pride themselves on setting their clients’ needs above any other factor in a transaction, and this approach to service has seen great success. Together, the father-son team has set service records at both the local and national levels with PRMI, and the organization considers them among their best in the nation.
