Esquivel Family recommends Edgar Aranda

We can’t thank Edgar, Anita and their team who have literally held our hands through what we expected to be a stressful process. They have not only been super professional, but have been rooting for us since day one! If you want prompt, reliable, above and beyond service- please do yourself a favor and contact them for your home buying needs. Thank you guys for making our dream a reality!!

Matthew & Heather D. recommend Edgar Aranda

Edgar and his team were incredibly helpful and supportive for the entire homebuying process. We are first time home owners and were very unsure and intimidated by the home buying process, they walked us through everything and even found a grant to help us due to Matthew's employment as a nurse.

We are moving into our condo next week and couldn't be happier!

Jason R. recommends Edgar Aranda

I cannot state how impressed my wife and I are by the whole team at Cardinal Financial. Edgar and Anita really have assembled a great crew. The team was always just a call away. Roadblocks were reduced to rubble thanks to their non-stop efforts to see our home purchase through to the finish line. They explained everything to us, and was there whenever we needed help. Thanks, Cardinal Financial, for helping make our dream of owning a home come true.

Anita and her team always give 100% in everything they do and it shows! We have worked with them for 3 different home transactions and they were always clear with instructions and goals which is such a big deal when you are trying to gather documents and get your finances in order. I cannot recommend them enough!!

Edgar, Anita, and the entire lending team were so good in their communications to all parties. I can tell that they really look out for the best interests of their borrower's interest and are proactive in the lending process. Nice job team!!

Brittany L. recommends Anita Aguilar

Anita and her team are actual rockstars! We reached out just to see where we could get preapproved. As people who have never bought a home before, they made it super easy and seamless! They answered all of our questions, we had a ton, and they helped guide us in the right direction to get where we needed to be. There was a waiting period before we could afford our house and Anita and her team still checked in with us every week to make sure we were comfortable and didn’t have any questions. Once we finally found our dream home they made a very long and confusing process super quick and easy. There was constant communication to make sure we were comfortable. Choosing Anita and her team to help guide you through the homebuying process is the best decision you can make!

Mal H. recommends Edgar Aranda

We bought a house!! After 2yrs of searching, and all of the emotional ups and downs that come with that, we were able scrape almost every penny we have to our names and PURCHASE A HOME IN SAN DIEGO!

We can’t thank our amazing realtor enough for shepherding us through this challenging journey! This also did not happen without our amazing lenders Anita & Edgar, doing the financial gymnastics to make our situation possible! We are grateful to be in the homeowner game and are looking forward to making memories at OUR HOUSE. Growing up with humble beginnings (Ice Cream Spoon/Ketchup Drawer), owning a house feels like a monumental achievement. It still feels surreal that we've achieved this milestone! New adventures and unforgettable memories ahead!

My clients always have a wonderful experience working with Edgar, Anita and the entire Cardinal Team. This transaction was particularly difficult and complicated, but with the lending teams' expert advice, guidance and support we successfully closed - helping another family become homeowners! We have fun, we get the job done and we give the best service to our clients and communities - it's an honor to work with such experts!

Kim Drusch recommends Edgar Aranda


I've been a Realtor for 18 years and have completed hundreds of transactions. I am really impressed with the level of service and the rapid execution of the loan once we were under contract. To have contingencies removed in one week for a loan is truly unheard of in this industry. This is due to the extensive preliminary work Edgar and his team does on the loan and the qualifying of the borrower prior to the agent submitting a contract. Impressive, indeed! I am definitely a huge fan!

Carleen R. recommends Edgar Aranda

Edgar, Anita and the whole team helped me purchase my first home in 2023. We worked together for over two years as I worked to find the perfect home for me and my family. Edgar was always "in my corner" giving me the confidence and motivation to keep looking even when the market was challenging. And when my time came and my offer was accepted, Edgar and his team were there to get me across the finish line in RECORD time. The listing agent, sellers and escrow company were all blown away by the speed and kindness with which Edgar's team is able to execute. I cannot recommend this team more. THANK YOU!

Eduardo A. recommends Anita Aguilar

Anita and her team helped me purchase my first Condo. What typically is a frustrating and confusing process seemed like a breeze due to the dedication of her and her entire team. Everyone in their organization was extremely helpful and patience with a potential new homeowner such as myself. They were always timely with their communication and instructions throughout the entire experience. I couldn't recommend any other organization to work with!
