Anita and her team are literally a case study of incredible customer service & wonderful results. Not only can you tell that her and her team put in the hard work...but they are always checking-in, keeping you updated, providing clear and detailed information throughout the entire process, helping you understand any questions or concerns -- and always always making you feel confident and comfortable. I could not recommend Anita and her team more.

The team at Cardinal Financial made our home purchase process quick and easy. They answered all of our questions and guided us every step of the way.

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.

Anita (and Edgar & little one!),

We appreciate you reaching out all the time and updating us with interesting information about real estate ... and life.

As we wind down the year, we want to share our gratitude with you once again and of course with your brother because of how much our lives have changed because of your assistance helping us in real estate. This has been such an amazing property for us even though it has so many things to upgrade.

We are so happy in this location and the amenities that we have available. Thanks to you our lifestyle has changed and we're able to live in this part of California comfortably.

All the best.

Sincerely, Dinah and James

The team helped me for over 9 months through the house hunting process. They helped get a great realtor and made the process super easy.

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!
