Oh my goodness. What can I say? Anita is amazing. She helped us find our fixer-upper home mortgage and we are very pleased. Anita went out of her way to assist us and she basically treats us like a family member. Without family in the SoCal area, we feel we can go to her if we need anything. Thank you Anita!!!!

Anita was very friendly, personable and efficient. I like knowing I can contact her just about any time of day and get a quick response to my questions... and there were a LOT of questions! Thanks for helping us through this process and for your patience and guidance.

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.

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!

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.

Anita was so creative and patient dealing with our unique situation. We knew she had our back.

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.

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.

Anita and her team were AMAZING! They made the whole process so easy and enjoyable for me. Anita's wisdom about real estate was supreme and she explained everything that was occurring through out the process in a practical manor so I could understand. She also did her best to get me the best possible outcomes. I am extremely grateful for her hard wrack and I look forward to working with her in the future when I purchase my next property!

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.

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!

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 is the best! She was cheerful and positive throughout the whole process. She always helped us with anything we needed, and was extremely attentive. She made our first home buying experience less stressful and easy!

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!

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.

Anita and her team were super easy and extremely pleasant to work with and they were very knowledgeable about the process. They were always just a text, email and/or phone call away and even corresponded during nights and weekends. They guided us through everything and were always quick to answer all our questions never making us feel bad about asking them, and they made sure we would meet deadlines by sending us friendly reminders of what we still needed to do. I would definitely recommend using Anita to others.
