Raphael Yoshimura

David is very informative. We learned so much from David, not just about buying our home, but also everything about the home buying process. He genuinely cares about his clients, regularly checking in with us to make sure all aspects of our escrow are going well and to offer his help every step of the way. His diligence made the home buying process smooth and efficient. We couldn't have closed escrow early without him!

Jessica Nguyen recommends David Cordero

First Time Homebuyer

We found David through a family member's recommendation. I'm so glad we chose to work with David to buy our first home. He was super patient and thoroughly answered my many, many questions about the home buying process, from getting pre-approved all the way to closing escrow. David is very prompt and responsive, always did everything efficiently. His great work really shined through because we were ahead of schedule for getting the loan approved and were able to close escrow early! I would highly recommend David to anyone, not just first time homebuyers. Thank you, David, for all your help in getting us our first home!

Restauran Distric manager

I have work with a few lenders in the pass no one has been as attentive, effective as David Cordero. From day one he was on it and updating me regularly on loan progress. Every timeI had any questions he was there to answer regardless of the time or day. I will definitely work with David again and have recommended him to friends and family.

Lisa Larson recommends KD Lending | Kaelen Cavalli & Deanna Schmidt

New homeowner

KD Lending went on the roller coaster ride of buying a home in the Bay Area with us. They were there with every offer we made (6!) over the course of 10 months and guided us through all the next steps in the buying process. Deanna was responsive to all our questions (a lot of questions!) and proactive in contacting listing agents to help position us as the best non-cash buyers. In our offer we were positioned as a 21 day close, Deanna helped us get the job done in 17 days. Although it was not guaranteed to get it don’t sooner than 21 days, KD Lending pulled it off and was able to get us into our home sooner than expected. For all the attention to detail and responsiveness, I highly recommend this dynamic duo to help you get your deal done. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Director of Global Programs

Kaelen was a dream to work with for our second home purchase! She made everything seamless and while there was a moment or two of mishaps (not at fault of her own), she never let us feel uneasy and kept the situation calm and stress free for us, which is all anyone can ask for! I would work with Kaelen again and again...let's hope I can buy that many houses in the future...ha!

I have tried to buy a house before and it was very difficult. we just purchase a new home and we were able to close in 3 weeks. David stayed on the process the whole time and made sure we did not skip a beat. I hope some other lenders will take lessons from David on how the process works! Than k you so much!

AMAZING loan officer. Kaelen did a great job on our new home purchase and refinance of our mortgage. She was prompt in responding to our calls and emails, even on her days off. She always kept us informed and has outstanding customer service skills. She was so helpful throughout the process. This is was our 5th transaction through Alameda Mortgage. We wouldn't hesitate to utilize her and Alameda Mortgage again. Kaelen and her team are amazing!!
Thank you again for all your help!

Real Estate Agent

Kaelens my go to lender for all my transactions. Shes friendly, knowledge and demonstrates high level professionalism. While being patient with my clients she also educates and walks them through the entire process. She has my back playing middle man with all parties which isn’t even in her job discription! I would def recommend her to anyone looking for a lender to support them on their home purchase or an agent representing a buyer! :)

Josefina Distor recommends KD Lending | Kaelen Cavalli & Deanna Schmidt

I met Kaelan at an open house- at that time I already have a lender which I’m working with. Chatting w\ her proved to be informative- she has a very warm personality and I trusted her immed. That day was the start of a good working relationship. Process went smoothly and fast , and before I knew it , we have the keys to the house. She made this process less stressful and I would definitely recommend her to every homebuyer.

David Broady recommends KD Lending | Kaelen Cavalli & Deanna Schmidt

Sales Manager, Ridge Realty

Kaelen became our Go To Agent in 2017. My associate and I come from the Banking side. So finding the right agent wasn't easy. We didn't select Kaelen. She earned our business by performing. But most important, she earned our Trust. Realtors don't have time to babysit the loan process. We needed someone to take charge and just let us know when docs were ready.
Didn't want to hear the crying. Just see the baby.
In short, Kaelen cares about Relationships.

Ken Saltzman recommends David Cordero


David helped make one of the most stressful experiences in a person's life MUCH less scary and much more understandable.

He kept in constant touch with us, answering the many questions I had almost immediately. He explained everything in great detail, but also in a way that I could fully understand.

Beyond that, he just very personable. Almost felt like a friend was helping me out.

David has my full recommendation.

Fallon N. recommends Rich Atkinson


Rich and his team were outstanding to work with and made the home buying process as smooth as possible. We were first time home buyers who had no idea what we were doing and he was extremely patient with our hundreds of questions and held our hand the whole way. We had heard many horror stories about how stressful the home buying process could be, so we were pleasantly surprised by how stress-free Rich made the process for us. He is very responsive and would answer texts, emails, and phone calls quickly and thoroughly - whether it was a weekday, evening, or weekend. We will be recommending Rich to all of our friends who are looking for a great lender and will certainly be using him again in the future if the need arises.

Nick was amazing. Patient, helpful, knowledgeable, respectful, persistent in just the right way. I was dreading the thought of refinancing and I had put it off for years. Nick held my hand through the whole process and made it painless. I couldn't recommend him more.

Marcia Bernard recommends Rich Atkinson

Director of Technology, DJUSD

Rich was outstanding. His strong customer service from start to finish of our loan process, counsel about options, and great attention to detail were unparalleled. Importantly, he was very patient when he had to explain things to me in multiple ways. We very much appreciated working with Rich, and would recommend him without reservation.
