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.

Aaron Price recommends Edgar Aranda

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.

Vice President

Anita and her entire team have been a pleasure to work with so I didn't think twice to use her again! Her diligence and exceptional knowledge of the industry made me feel confident that I made the right choice again. When it comes to home lending there is only one person I will contact in the future and that is Anita and her team, my first and only choice!

Missy H recommends Anita Aguilar

First-time Homeowner

Anita went not only the extra mile for me, but also gave me out-of-this-world service. Never have I ever experienced someone who is so diligent at her job, communicative through every step of the process, and a true advocate for her client’s best interests. Going into the homebuying process by myself seemed daunting, but I never felt alone working with Anita. She is empathetic to your fears and apprehensions and assuages them with her sage advice and gregarious personality. AND, she does the dang thing! I got pre-approved, closed escrow, and funded in a flash! Not only did I find an amazing home, but also have found an amazing friend in Anita. I would trust her with just about anything – but especially a home loan!

Anita & Edgar's team were awesome! Everyone was very helpful and they guided us through the process smoothly.
Since day one, we provided all the information needed for a fast and efficient pre-approval. We quickly found the house we were looking for and everything just went amazingly great.
If you want to ensure to get the property that you want in a short amount of time, definitely choose this team because they will be working day and night to make it happen.
As an extra, they are incredible people, easy-going, and fun to talk to.
Thank you Edgar & Anita! :)

Keila and Alberto Martinez recommend Anita Aguilar

We couldn’t have picked a better person to work with. Anita and her team are the absolute best! Anita made our experience as first time home buyers so easy, fun and exciting, it was definitely not what we we’re expecting at all! The first time we tried applying for a home loan, it was through our Credit Union but of course, they turned us down. After that, we just felt completely discouraged and lost hope of ever being home owners. We waited almost a year before we decided to give it another go cause we thought to ourselves, “Why not?! It doesn’t hurt to try again.” This time, we had the pleasure of working with Anita. From the first time we spoke on the phone I could tell already tell that this time around, it was going to be different. She has such a positive vibe and is so passionate about her job, it’s hard not to love her. She set up a meeting and sat down with us and she saw how nervous we we’re, but she made us feel so comfortable. It literally felt we like having a conversation with family member. She gave us an exact breakdown of what we needed to accomplish our goal and most importantly, she gave us back that hope we lost. She got us pre-approved for a loan and began looking in December. Now, we finally found our dream home and decided to close escrow earlier than we had anticipated. Anita and her team made it happen for us! We get our keys on February 1st!!!! Thank you for making this experience the best! I would highly recommend Anita to everyone that I know!

Happy Homeowner! recommends Anita Aguilar

Anita Aguilar is the best. She would always respond to any questions I had and made paperwork a lot easier. Her personality is definitely a plus. She’s so heartwarming and has a great attitude. Getting a house during the holidays wasn't easy, however she made it possible. Best of all she’s bilingual.
