“By far the best Lender I've ever dealt with. Y'all ACTUALLY communicate with people. I will definitely be saving you as a point of contact if I'm ever in the process of needing another home loan. I cannot explain how fantastic it was to do business with you and I was able to do it all through email and not have to be by my phone at all hours of the day hoping I don't miss a phone call. Thank you so much for that. Y'all are fantastic.”

“Dan and his team are solid. I didn't question the process at all because he is trusted, transparent and upfront. He was always available if I needed him. Although I had to provide a little more documentation/personal info than I thought was truly necessary for Homebridge (and somewhat redundant), I completely trusted Dan so I was fine with it. He has what you can never replace with a process: trust, competency and character. That's why I went to him for this refinance.”

Alexandria N. San Diego, CA
“Dan is a stand up guy and a decorated veteran. His problem solving skills have really helped in an industry where many loan officers are unable to think through difficult scenarios and where a buyer might even lose their dream home at the fault of an inexperienced lender. This is not the case with Dan. He is always available and cares about the people involved vs just treating us as "just another loan file." Thanks Dan!”
Ed San Marcos, CA
“Dan cares and is quick to respond. He is authentic and a good teacher on what is involved in the lending process. He is my choice for a lending partner.”
Dean and Jane P. Valley Center, CA
“I know for a fact that if we had not used Dan Chapman for our VA Loan, we would never have gotten the funding for our dream home. We first contacted our mortgage provider that we had previously used and were denied because my husband (retired Navy) and I are both self-employed. We were then referred to Dan and he was able to work with the bank and pull it off. Every morning I wake up and smile because of the wonderful home we now live in!”
Elizabeth Encinitas, CA
“I completed a VA loan with Dan and his team in 2015. Dan and Kelli are simply the best. This company represents professional, motivated, and passionate individuals who help with your home investments. They go above and beyond. Semper Fi.”
Sam G. Oceanside, California
“When looking for a professional to help with your home purchase or refinance, Dan is the man. I have had the pleasure of working with Dan for the past 4 years and have found him to be one of the best professionals that I have worked with. Dan is honest, has a great attitude and is someone I trust. I continue to refer my clients and friends to Dan every time.”
Sean P. Oceanside, CA
“I would highly recommend Dan Chapman as a Mortgage Lender. He was able to help me get the most ideal loan for our house and made the process extremely simple. Dan was very knowledgeable when it came to the different loan packages and what made the most sense for me financially.”
Patrick W. Murrieta, California
“Getting financing for my situation was not easy. Dan and his team did everything they could and worked overtime to make it happen. Without them, I would not have gotten a loan and have the opportunity to give my family a brighter future. As a fellow Marine Corps Veteran and a member of the Wounded Warrior Battalion, I am deeply thankful.”
