Carrie Diaz
VP of Mortgage Lending

The mortgage business has changed dramatically, and navigating the criteria for loan approval have never been more difficult. Now, more than ever you need a true mortgage professional in your corner. I am prepared as ever to work with you, having closed more than 2500 loans and having an incredible team of experienced mortgage lending professionals behind me. You can rest assured that we will provide the level of service that you should always expect--personalized, compassionate and comprehensive. Experienced in all facets of mortgage lending from cottages to castles. For over 23 years I have been helping families realize their dreams of home ownership and building equity. I have worked with builders and developers on major projects as well as individual real estate agents and home buyers. I have served on the Market Finance Committee with the Building Industry association for many years. I am also the proud recipient of Orange Coast Magazines five star professionals award for the past 4 years in a row. This award is especially dear to me because it is awarded to only the top 7% of mortgage professionals in Orange County. It is determined by surveys of home buyers as to their experience in purchasing a home. I am experienced in construction to perm loans, new construction, luxury home purchase as well as first time buyer, VA and FHA.
