We are incredibly grateful for Anita and her team for guiding us through the home buying process. After a previous negative experience with another team in 2018, we were daunted by the prospect of purchasing a home. However, Anita and her team made the entire process smooth and stress-free, offering unwavering support and genuine care every step of the way.

Their professionalism and dedication are truly stellar. We especially appreciate the transparency and clear communication throughout the process, ensuring we understood every detail. Thanks to their efforts, we received a voucher through the CalHFA's Dream for All program, which has been life-changing for us.

Anita and her team went above and beyond to make our dream of homeownership a reality, and we cannot thank them enough. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a trustworthy and supportive team to help with their home buying journey.

One of the most impressive escrows I've been a part of thanks to Anita and her team. Super fast timelines to start with on a very large loan that ended up being sped up, somehow. She simply over-delivers incredibly. Constant communication, we never felt in the dark or out of the loop. Thank you Anita!

Anita and her team delivered beyond expectation. They were able to get us pre-approved in 24 hours and helped us close escrow in 9 calendar days! We are still in disbelief that we are homeowners now because the whole thing happened so fast and seamlessly.

It was hard not to stress out during the entire process, but they were there every step of the way, kept us in close communication, and were on top of everything. We don't think we can ever find a better team! We are extremely grateful for their part in helping our dreams come true.

We totally recommend Anita's team, especially if you are new to this. They are THE ONE you'd like to get help from. Thanks to the team again for your professionalism and down-to-earth attitude. We hope to work with you all again on our next home purchases.

First-time Home Buyers
Working with Anita and her team at Cardinal Financial was a game-changer for us in our home-buying journey. We were bracing for a complicated process, but they made it surprisingly straightforward and stress-free.

Anita was our guiding light right from the start, shining bright with her deep knowledge and unwavering support. When our first home purchase stumbled due to unforeseen HOA complications, she didn't just keep us motivated—she instilled in us a sense of resilience and hope. Her confidence and proactive approach were contagious, keeping our spirits high even in the face of disappointment.

It was during our second attempt in escrow that Anita truly showcased her exceptional skills. Her ability to think outside the box and her tireless advocacy on our behalf were nothing short of miraculous. It wasn't just her technical expertise that made the difference; it was her genuine belief in our dream and her determination to see it through. The moment we received our loan approval, thanks to Anita's efforts, we were left in awe. It was a testament to her incredible proficiency and dedication to her clients.

What also impressed us was how Anita and her team managed to make the entire process feel so manageable. They were always on hand to answer our questions and sort out any issues, ensuring that everything progressed without a hitch. It felt like they were taking care of the heavy lifting, allowing us to focus on the excitement of buying our new home.

We're incredibly grateful to Anita and the entire team at Cardinal Financial. Their support and professionalism didn't just help us buy our home; they made the journey enjoyable. For anyone looking to buy a home, Anita and her team come highly recommended by us. Their ability to simplify the home-buying process and remove the stress was truly remarkable. Thanks to them, we're now happily settled in our new home, and the whole experience was much smoother than we ever imagined.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about this team! From helping us purchase my childhood home last June to helping us with a cash-out refinance last month, they have been so helpful throughout the entire process. I love their communication style which includes check-ins, phone calls, and text messages that really keep us in the loop the whole process but also explain everything in terms we can understand and grasp. I cannot stress enough how thankful we are to own our home and be able to live in beautiful San Diego County. We are especially thankful to their team for putting up with our incessant questions and phone calls and for always being there for us when we need them. We highly recommend Cardinal Financial and look forward to working with them again in the future :)

I don't know where to start! Anita and her team made my dream come true. From the very first phone call until after closing she kept me in the loop and handled everything for me. Made sure all my T's were crossed and all I's dotted. I couldn't of done this without you all. THANK YOU!

Education
Anita and the rest of her team are so easy to work with! We did our complete transaction online, as we are not locals to their area. They did such an awesome job at keeping us, the Borrowers, in the loop. We communicated via emails, text messages and voicemails. Their timeline of how we completed the loan process was very smooth with zero issues. Anita's team is fast to move the borrowing process along. They are very clear, specific and knowledgeable. Anita seem to truly look out for what is best for her Borrowers. We have enjoyed the process of our refinance and will continue to reap the benefits. We highly recommend them to everyone!

Honestly, there is nothing that could improve my overall experience with your team. You were so helpful, honest, responsive, and educational. I couldn't imagine a better first-time home buying experience. When I told our notary that you guys had already walked us through all of the paperwork, he said "oh wow, you guys definitely have a good lender then." I think that says it all. ;)

Happy client
Anita and the team helped us after hearing about our unique situation. Everyone was very professional and kept us informed with every step. I should've known this would work out when Anita ended our first conversation with "You're in good hands." Thank you team for all your hard work, dedication, and professionalism.
