What are They Saying

What are people saying about Derek?

“Derek, There is something that I do feel you should know. I have been on the phone and/or worked with nearly 30 lenders in my search for a loan. You were the most knowledgeable and efficient person I found. I’m glad I found you. I will recommend you to anyone that might need your type of services.  Best Regards.” – Timothy S., Mechanical Engineer / Physics Instructor, Northern CA


“As a first time home buyer, Derek went above and beyond for me and helped me get financed on a building that was almost impossible due to litigation. He kept me informed throughout the process and fully had my back. I probably wouldn’t be in my place without him… plus I got an amazing rate.”  – Matt F., Owner Digital Design and Branding Agency, San Diego, CA


“Derek was able to do a  mortgage that others refused to take on. He was able to guide us through the process effortlessly and was able to resolve all of the issues as they arose. He was even able to close the deal while I was out of state for work. His professionalism and follow through is second to none!” – Rick E., Fire Station Chief, Northern CA


“I was referred to Derek by my financial adviser as someone who helped him refinance and who he trusted personally. I needed a quick pre-qualification so I originally went to my bank that offered some compelling loan products, but I was still left wondering. My Real Estate agent also wanted me to give his loan officer a try who also had some compelling options.

It was Derek, though, who finally offered me the right solution which neither of my other resources were able to provide. In addition, by the time I made up my mind, we had less than 30 days to close and we were dealing with some nervous and very demanding sellers.

Derek handled everything and everybody with the utmost care and consideration. He was responsive and incredibly knowledgeable. He was there for me every step of the way for guidance and to answer questions. I felt he had my best interest at heart and he proved himself to be very trustworthy. We closed on time, which many had their doubts we could do.

I proudly and confidently endorse Derek’s services. He will not only find you the right loan solution for your specific circumstances but you will feel you are in good hands, that you are being taken care of by a professional who knows what he is doing and that you are dealing with someone you can trust.”Shawn S., Executive Search Consultant, Orange County

Derek then took it a step further and helped me get set up with an insurance broker and accountant to help me navigate the new world of home ownership.What is most special about Derek is how he treats his clients as if they were his own family. He is always on time, easy to get a hold of, works extremely hard and fights for the best deal for his clients.
