TRMS (now Compass) provides mortgage pipeline risk management for mortgage companies and thrifts that seek to originate and sell loans into the secondary mortgage market. In November of 2006 Rob left TRMS to become the Director of Capital Markets for RPM Mortgage, a retail residential lender, leaving there in late 2008 to focus on not only publishing a widely read daily market commentary on current mortgage events but also on his family.

He is on the board of directors of Peoples Bank, a mid-sized depository in Kansas, of IFC, a financial services company which advances capital to heirs, and of International City Mortgage. He is also an advisor to the Board for First Mortgage, a member of the Secure Settlements Advisory Board, an associate of the STRATMOR Group, a member of the California Mortgage Bankers Association, and of the Mortgage Bankers Association of the Carolinas and its membership committee, and is on the Mortgage Advisory Board for the California Automobile Association.
