Robert Grant recommends David Cordero

David came recommended by our realtor who we asked for a local mortgage broker referral to help us with a mortgage on a second home. We were so happy with his professionalism and the seamless transaction that we also had him help us refinance our primary mortgage. He was incredibly attentive the whole time and despite some hiccups (not of his causing) he got us two great loans at great rates.

Michael Espinoza recommends David Cordero

Porsche Technician

David did our first home purchase and was very informative and patient with explaining the details and process with us. Anytime I had questions he would respond back in either email or text. Very upfront and no bs!
When it came time to refinance to drop PMI and go conventional, I shopped around and dealt with other banks and people. He was again, upfront and spent the time talking to me explaining the process and very informative with no rush or intimidation on proceeding with him only.
He got us a great rate and made it smooth and easy. Would recommend him to family and friends instantly and trust him.

Jesse Wood recommends David Cordero

I worked with Dave on a refinance of my house. Dave was very knowledgeable and explained every step of the process. He was responsive and worked quickly and efficiently. He made the whole experience really easy. His office's document repository and DocuSigns really made it easy to complete the transaction for my wife and I. I would definitely recommend Dave to all my friends!

I have worked with David and his team on several loans. His responsiveness, professionalism and "can-do" attitude have made each transaction an absolute pleasure. Regardless of how straightforward or challenging a loan may be, David addresses obstacles quickly and manages your transaction with precise attention to detail.

Jesse Quemada recommends David Cordero

Sales and Customer Service Representative

David has helped our family with several mortgage related transactions, and he made every one of them pain-free. Two of which were very unique instances, but David and Alameda Mortgage Corp. worked diligently to assure that our family got what it needed. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and personable. I highly recommend David Cordero for those in search of a mortgage consultant.

Richard Schmeets recommends David Cordero

Facility HVAC Supervisor

I was recommended to David Cordero by Rocco Russo from Century 21Hilltop. Shortly after talking to David I felt completely comfortable with his knowledge and felt that he had my best interest in mind. This will be the third house that I have purchased and at least 3 refinances over the past 30 years. Never have I had a more simple, stressless and problem free experience financing anything. I am truly grateful to have met David and highly recommend his services.

Chris Marsh recommends KD Team | Kaelen Cavalli & Deanna Schmidt

Senior Manager

Kaelen helped my wife and me purchase our house in Seattle. My Wife, myself, and my real estate agent were very impressed with Kaelen throughout the process. She was very communicative at every stage and incredibly responsive to all of our questions and requests. Kaelen and Alameda mortgage not only provided a very attractive rate, beating Wells Fargo, but also helped us close the loan within a matter of weeks, so that we could move into our house before my wife began her residency, something the competition could note do. We can't recommend Kaelen and Alameda Mortgage enough, and definitely intend to use them on future purchases or refinancings.

Regional Sales Manager

This is our second time working with David. First was to purchase our house and this time was to refi our house. In both experiences he exceeded expectations. He’s very experienced and helpful through the process. He is patient and very thorough so we never felt like we were blind sided with any part of our experience. I will in the future and have recommended him to anyone in the future that wants to buy a new home or refinance. Thank you for another smooth and great experience.

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!

Gerardo Jaimez recommends David Cordero

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 Team | 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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Home Buyers

Rick was amazing throughout our whole loan process for our first house purchase. He was quick to answer any question we had and found ways to give us our best most comfortable options in terms of finances. Rick made a scary process very enjoyable with his down to earth personality and his expertise in the field. I could not have asked for a better lender!
