I want to express my absolute gratitude to Edgar and the team for all the help they provided to Gabriel and I. Also a very special recognition to Joel for moving mountains to get all the paperwork in order and for making the loan process as easy a possible. Gabriel and I can not wait to move into our new home. Highly recommend Edgar and his team to anyone in the market to purchase.

I used Anita's services when I purchased my house. Most recently I refinanced that same house and called Upon Anita and her team. I would do it all over again and recommend them to everyone I know. They are professionals, they know the industry, they have the clients' best interest in mind, and go above and beyond to help the process feel as smooth as possible. Anita and her team are the best! We are so thankful for their efforts, and most importantly for meeting and exceeding our expectations. We will def use them again if necessary.

Melissa L. recommends Anita Aguilar

I cannot begin to explain my appreciation for Anita. To go through this process as a single female, it could get overwhelming. Anita was there to hold my hand through the process (figuratively), explain everything, and show up to meetings when I needed it. At no point did I ever feel lost or confused. I would not have been able to do this without her!

Ben D. recommends Edgar Aranda

I would like to thank Edgar, Anita and the Cardinal Financial team of San Diego for the personal support throughout the loan process. Edgar helped me obtained 2 home loans in 2 years. He has a problem-solving mentality and a passion for working toward solutions. Edgar took care of all my questions and concerns in a timely manner, responding immediately by text, email or a phone call. Edgar manages a well-organized company in a competent way. Edgar also provided timely and helpful advice regarding the available loan options, rates, and guidance all the way through the loan and escrow. He also made me aware of the "refunding fee" based on the VA compensation award, so he's well versed with the VA Home loan process too. Again, Edgar and his staff are extremely attentive and listened to all my concerns with a great deal of patience.

Cesar Villa recommends Edgar Aranda

Me and my wife highly recommend Edgar and his team! We came back to him to refinance our home because of the fast and easy experience when we first bought our house. And again everything went smooth. We always got an answer and if he couldn’t he made she to get it to us someway. In the future if we buy a new home we will come back to him no doubt!

Pamela S. recommends Anita Aguilar

I felt like I got more than a lender in Anita. She went above and beyond by working with the multiple parties involved in my less-than-straightforward sell-and-buy transaction. She kept me thoroughly informed throughout the process and her team was on top of everything and made the process as expedited as possible. Above all, I felt that Anita provided me very sound advice and given our complex transaction with a tight timeline, Anita was solution-oriented. As I sit here in my dream home, I can't help but be grateful for what she has done.

Mark D. recommends Anita Aguilar

Anita was amazing. From the first call to the closing she was always sure to communicate and reach out with her input always making sure that my family's interest was always the priority. She did research on each property we viewed and gave her honest opinion on how we approached the buying process.

Even after closing she continuously checks up to make sure that we are getting settled and ensured that all our questions were answered. That puts her above the rest. The fact that after closing she didn't stop communicating. That's something my wife and I greatly appreciated and feel you would appreciate as well.

This is our first home and although the process was stressful, Anita made it as stressless as possible and I was confident in Anita and her team because she is amazing at what she does. I highly recommend Anita Aguilar for your home financing needs.

Mark M recommends Anita Aguilar

Anita was our last hope. We had been turned away by other loan agents and told our mortgage goals were unrealistic because of the complexities of our financial situation. Anita came up with several options using very creative strategies and eventually got us an outstanding mortgage to get us into our dream home. She was very understanding of our complex financial situation and happily took it on when no others would. She fought for us and clearly was our advocate when working with the underwriters for the loan. We emphatically recommend Anita and her outstanding team as a loan agent.

We now are settling into our forever home and are thankful to Anita for making it possible. If you are looking for a loan agent, go with Anita Aguilar - you will be thankful you did.

Monica Ancheta recommends Edgar Aranda


I am so thankful to Edgar and his WONDERFUL team for being so very patient with me and the whole entire loan process. As everyone knows this process isn't an easy undertaking. This requires several documents and several signatures. His team not only were attentive but diligent to make sure that the process went smoothly. Constant updates, emails, late phone calls and even texts were greatly appreciated before and even sometimes after business hours. My schedule is very limited on regular business hours but Edgar and his team were very flexible and helpful. If I have to go through this process again or refer any family and friends they have me my vote.

Edgar, Anita, Joel, and the rest of the team were all great people to work with. They constantly kept me up to date on what was going on, were very friendly, provided insight and advice, and answered all of my questions. On top of that, they were able to give us a great rate for our mortgage, and made the home buying process very smooth. Would recommend their service to anyone.

Brittany Morrison recommends Anita Aguilar

First time home buyer

My husband & I shopped around for a lender to help us with our first time home buying experience & Anita was by far the best! She's very knowledgeable about first time buyer options & the lending business in general. She was VERY pleasant to work with & was able to help us get a short escrow so that we could get the jump on the house we wanted which gave us just the right edge to get it. It's been 2 weeks since we closed & her & her team are still reaching out occasionally to see how we are doing/how we're settling in. They make us feel like they truly care.

Leslie C recommends Edgar Aranda

I am very pleased with our home loan experience from beginning to end. Anita and Edgar are both very professional and friendly at the same time. They treat your loan as if it were their own. They were equally excited as my fiancé and I during the entire process and made us feel in good hands. They found programs that we qualified for that we were not even expecting which made the experience that much better. Also, Our loan was closed in TEN days!! Everyone I share this with asks the same question .. how is that even possible when others are known to wait months to close?? Well I am living proof and I will definitely reach out to Anita and Edgar for refi, home loan needs.

Everything came out perfect. I was treated excellently by Edgar and his team. I am thankful to God for all the help they gave me. Thanks to them, I will be able to move into my new home. Edgar will be the first person I think of when giving any of my friends a recommendation. His team guided me in every step of the way.
