Rob Ziebart - Owner/Manager
As a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist with Landmark Mortgage Planners, I am the Branch Manager for our 7 locations. I work closely with my Management, Operations, and Sales Teams which are all among the best and most accomplished in the mortgage industry. Our #1 Goal: To deliver an unbeatable mortgage lending experience.
I began my career in the mortgage business 17 years ago and have closed approximately 2000 loans in and around Central Florida. In 2006, I found myself on Mortgage Originator Magazine's Top 200 Originators List ahead of over 300,000 competitors nationwide, ranking 140th in closed loan volume. This was the result of closing 314 loans, totaling $59 million, in just 12 months. After working for a Nationwide Mortgage Lender with monthly volumes exceeding $3 Billion, I decided to start Landmark Mortgage Planners in 2007 because I had a different vision for a mortgage company.
Our passion is helping people purchase homes by giving strong accurate advice and always doing what’s best for our clients. We do things differently at Landmark. We explore and present all mortgage financing options, aligning our clients mortgage decisions with their overall short and long term financial goals. We understand there's no "one size fits all mortgage". Therefore, we help people approach this critical decision with a financial planning mindset, looking to the future and helping our clients realize options they may not know were available.
We look at the whole picture and are professionally trained to clearly explain how little changes in the way we structure a mortgage plan can make a very BIG difference financially over time. We've seen this type of restructuring shave as much as 10 years off a mortgage loan by refinancing to a lower term with no change to monthly cash flow. In another instance, a young family may benefit from a longer term amortization with a reduction in monthly payment allowing them to reinvest their monthly savings into a high dollar tax free life insurance policy, a wealth creation strategy for retirement, or a college fund for their children. This type of financial benefit may not have been available to these clients prior to fully exploring and understanding all of their mortgage options.
At Landmark Mortgage Planners, we embrace the "Client For Life" mindset, and work with our customers throughout Florida to make their dreams of home ownership, as well as their goals of financial security, a reality.
We have offices in The Villages, Ocala, and Gainesville FL.

If you are looking for honest, helpful, professionals to take you through the mortgage process then Rob and his team are the place to go! I highly recommend Landmark Mortgage planners, I got my original mortgage with them and I just went through a seamless refinance with them, that lowered my payments and saved me thousands in interest payments. Mark did a great job and the whole process was not stressful at all! Thanks again for another great experience!!
Great experience, excellent service, easy to work with
Closing on a home can be stressful. Stephanie was always there to answer any concerns or question we had. Stephanie has a great deal of knowledge about mortgage process and the resources. Throughout the process Stephanie took the initiative to keep the process on track. Stephanie was always caring and on top of everything. She made this process as stress free as she could. Stephanie is very dedicate to her work and knows her job well,which made this a very positive experience. We would highly recommend Stephanie and the Landmark staff to anyone seeking outstanding Mortgage Planner and full service company.

Thank you Rob and the entire Landmark company for making it so easy for Susie and to close on our new home!!!! I couldn't believe that we were able to do it within 28 days which was perfect.
Out of the 16 years that I've been selling real estate, I've found Rob Ziebart to be the most complete and thorough Mortgage Loan Origination that I have worked with. He leaves no stone unturned in getting people into the home of their dreams.
Rob, Melissa, and Dotty, thank you for going above and beyond in your efforts to get my closing to happen. Very much appreciated.
Thank you for the help we received obtaining our mortgage and closing on time. The dedication everyone demonstrated to ensure a timely process was amazing. I had an experienced and knowledgeable support team that focused on making the process as smooth as possible for me. I will recommend Landmark Mortgage to anyone that is seeking a company that will find them the best rates and take a personal interest from the initial inquiry to a successful closing.
I had a buyer that had been getting the run around for several months with another lender. We transferred the mortgage to Rob and his team, and even though they had to start from scratch they closed the loan in under 30 days. Communication throughout the process was excellent and the processing staff was superb.
We came to Rob with a very unique situation and he was able to quickly "think outside the box" to help us purchase our home. My husband and I had been looking over a long period of time, pre-approved, and when it came crunch time, Rob seemed to be the only one out of 3 with the knowledge and resources to get the deal closed. Throughout the time and process with Rob and his team, there was never a time that any unnecessary stress was brought to me. Rob, Melissa, and other team members took initiative to continue the forward progress. Purchasing a home is stressful in itself but I can honestly say that we feel like Rob and his team took every action necessary to alleviate that stress. We would absolutely recommend Rob and his team at Landmark to anyone as it was a very positive experience! We are truly forever grateful...Scott and Kim Hatcher
In the past 10 years, I purchased four houses. My last purchase was handled by Rob Ziebart and his team at Landmark Mortgage Planners. Without reservation or hesitation, I absolutely recommend Mr. Ziebart and his staff at Landmark Mortgage Planners for mortgage origination services in comparison to my three prior home purchase experiences. Mr. Ziebart's professionalism combined with his expert knowledge of the mortgage industry make him undoubtedly the top choice for mortgage origination and servicing needs. In addition to having the lowest mortgage rate I could find, Mr. Ziebart and his staff quickly and adeptly answered all of my questions posed whether by email or telephone and ensured we closed on the home purchase within the time frame he promised. If you need a mortgage for a home purchase or want to lower your rate for an existing mortgage, the clear choice in my opinion is Mr. Ziebart and Landmark Mortgage Planners.
