Reid Abshear

This was the third refinance we have done with Megan. She is easy to work with and even gets back in touch with her clients after normal hours when necessary. I can't imagine using anyone else for future mortgage needs.

Dave Conway

Chez not only got me the rate I wanted but the overall cost of the loan was about 3K lower than my current bank loan mortgage was quoting me. I was told going with my current lender would be cheaper and with no problems. But my bank's Loan Officer was not willing to wait for rates to drop, and was discouraging me to think that rates would drop below 3.0% . Chez made the loan process easy, got me what I requested, and it was painless, as much as you can on a refi with all the document signing. I would recommend Chez if you are looking for a loan officer, he is knowledgeable, he explains the process, keeps you informed, and is always with a friendly response.

ROBERT JACKSON

We were so fortunate to get the referral to Kyle from a family member who had a great experience. After a horrendous experience with a previous broker, Kyle and his team showed us what excellent customer service should be like in this industry. The regular and timely communication was a huge plus for us. During the process, not once did too much time pass that we didn't know the status of our loan. They were accessible and returned communication timely. Kyle and his team were incredibly efficient and knowledgable that we felt comfortable knowing they were working on our side. Rates and fees were incredible. Kyle was open about all of that and we didn't feel he was only out for his commission. I have already recommended him to another family member who also had a similar incredible experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Marissa is nothing short of phenomenal! She communicates clearly and regularly, keeps her commitments and informs along the process. She is kind and level-headed when you have questions. She always maintained a professional demeanor and her character is both genuine and kind. You are lucky to have Marissa if she is your loan officer. I am already recommending her to people within my circle who are thinking of refinancing or pulling equity from their homes. In a climate where the future is uncertain for many and anxiety runs high, Marissa is an absolute salve.

Shabon and Yolanda H

My family has known Kyle for years and we knew he would be our go-to if ever the time came to need his services, as there is no one else we trust more to help us make the most informed and best decision for our family. In fact, he kindly, patiently, and knowledgeably entertained our regular inquiries on market conditions over the years (even knowing they were hypothetical at the time) which ultimately helped guide us toward a recent refinance on our home. Once we were ready to say “go,” Kyle was there for us and the ball started rolling quicker than we imagined. I knew the experience would be great based on many others I know who’ve used Kyle and CLA, but we remain shocked by how quick and smooth the process was, all as a result of Kyle’s seamless process, knowledge, experience, and responsiveness. We are grateful to Kyle for guiding us with such care and we would highly recommend and insist anyone we care about (and beyond, of course) to use Kyle and his team for any refinance or purchase needs. THANK YOU, KYLE!

She is extremely knowledgable, efficient, responsive and truly cares about the process going as smooth as possible.

She’s always reminded us what paperworks we needed to put together. If ever I needed to take out a loan in the future, I will definitely contact her again. I highly recommend her.

Maria B.

I knew Kyle Darrow from California Loan Associates on my first refinance back in 2015. I was in a pickle with my home loan mortgage and my bank wasn't very helpful at all with my dilemma. I thankful that Kyle was there and he helped me out with my mortgage needs. Kyle and his team was very helpful and easy to work with and so here we are five years later, my daughter and I we both needed his service and expertise once again. Kyle and his team worked very hard on our loans. All transaction done very quick and smoothly. I appreciate everything Kyle did and would highly recommend him to my friends and neighbors. He gets Five Stars from me. *****

Anne Robles

I worked with Megan Price on my refinance I cant say enough about this woman. She answered every little question we had,(and I had a lot) I felt like I was so lost and confused. She never made me feel stupid or like I was bothering her, even tho once I got some docs to sign and had questions it was around 6:30 p.m. I got nervous and called her she answered and helped me out making me feel at ease! I hung up feeling good about why I call but, I felt like what a caring person Megan is to take may call in the middle of what sounded like her taking care of her family perhaps during dinner rush as I could hear her small children catting in the back round. This is the type of person every one needs when this much money is involved. But to be truthful, I should not have called at that time, and for that I did apologize. She told me "I am here for you forever if ever you have a problem or need anything I will always be here, that made me feel comfortable. I cant say enough about Mrs. Price she is very professional, and will work hard for you.

Marlene

Dave has done several refinances for me and some of my family members. He is always polite, fast and efficient. I would definitely recommend Dave and CALIFORNIA LOAN ASSOCIATES.

I could not have received a better experience than I did with Megan Price. I have bought or refinanced a few times before and never enjoyed the process other than this time. Megan kept it smooth and easy, walked us thru each step of the process. I am so happy with my new loan and even more happy that I went to Megan Price to get it done. I will look to refer everyone I know to her.

Raquel Chavez

Megan is an incredible loan officer who has gone above and beyond for our family. We were rejected year after year by other lenders and were told that buying a home would not be possible. Megan Didn’t give up on us explained everything very clearly and held our hand from start to finish. She believed in us and gave us the time that so many others wouldn’t. She truly goes above and beyond and is dedicated to her clients. She is a fighter when things get tough, she is extremely knowledgeable and patient. We are so thankful for Megan as she helped us make our dreams come true! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buying a home. In fact I have already recommended her to 5 families and I know she will take exceptional care of them! Thank you so much Megan

Amy Payne

I was very fortunate to conduct the business of purchasing my house with Kyle Darrow. He made a significant difference for my family by helping us buying the House of our Dream! Kyle is very knowledgeable, efficient and has a great social skill. Because of his expertise and proficiency we were able to overcome a few arised along the way obstacles and successfully close on the house. Your company is very lucky to have such a great asset as Kyle. With undoubtable confidence I would recommend Kyle's service to all my friends and co-workers.

Alina G

This is my second time conducting business with Megan. I felt very confident with her the first time I had completed a transaction with her and because of that I returned to her again to handle my refinance. Megan is very helpful and trustworthy. With the pandemic going on a lot of the transaction process is done online and Megan called me and walked me through it page by page. I was looking to refinance to lower my interest rate. Megan started with one loan company at a lower rate and they were taking awhile to complete it and so during the wait she found another one that the rate was even lower yet and she secured that one. Each time she was keeping me informed step by step. Megan makes the process very easy and no doubt in trusting her decisions, and yet she involved me in those decisions.

Julianne Anderson

Kyle Darrow was very helpful during my first time home buying experience. Kyle was on top of everything and did a great job! Thank you for all your help and I will definitely recommend you.

Freddy Martinez

Kyle made the refinancing process seamless and always responded to the questions I had during the refinance.

Lisa Horst

Kyle is a great asset to any homeowner looking to refi. The rates are great, his knowledge is great, and we couldn’t have been happier with our experience. He breaks it all down in simple terms, explains options, and has some great ideas to make the process fit exactly what you are looking for. Can’t say enough good things about my experience.

Ruben D Velasquez

Jenna Ralston was fantastic; the epitome of professionalism and so wonderful to have as a Realator and loan officer. Her positive attitude and work ethic made my home buying experience second to none. She was always responsive and timely. I look forward to having her as my realtor in the future.

I have already recommended Kyle to my friends and will definitely use him again. THANK YOU KYLE. You made my dream come true!!!!

Natalie Gelly

I don’t even know where to start to tell you this man is amazing. We contacted him through a referral right before Christmas and needless to say he closed us in less than 3 weeks. Lowered our payment, and did no cost to us. I was a loan processor for many years no agent ever handle loans as brilliantly as this man did. He was there 24/7 with no hiccups whatsoever.

Raleigh Holman

My Loan Officer is Kyle Darrow. I have worked with CLA twice now and have all good things to say. Based on previous experiences with other loan broker companies, I give CLA a rating of "11" on a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being the best. Kyle and his team members are on top of the current and best rates. They were willing to keep in constant communication with me to provide assurance that we'd get the best rate locked in at the right time. I got the best rate and am completely happy with my new mortgage. The application process was simple and straight forward, and subsequent information requests were kept to a minimum because I was informed up front what information was needed and the best format to provide it in. The underwriter review process was fast and once the loan was approved all the paperwork preparation and signing process was expedited and set to accommodate my needs. The fees were well explained, and best of all, minimal! I recommend CLA to anyone in need of a new mortgage or just wanting to refinance. Thank you Kyle and Team!

Karen Hayden

I want to thank Kyle Darrow and Dave Marquez for all of the help in securing my loan for my new home in Turlock, California. Both of you are so knowledgeable, thorough and professional, as well as kind and friendly which made all of the difference in my interactions with you. Dave explained things very well! He went over things that I was having trouble understanding in any part of the loan process. I looked at both to provide me with honest and reliable information and have never been disappointed! You will always be my 1st choice, if I need loan help!! I’m so happy I put my trust in you and you most definitely came through meeting the highest 5 stars expectation. Thank you for your patience as well as treating me as a person rather than just home loan customers. You stand above the rest, Dave and Kyle!!! My hats off to you both!! here

Diana Galvan

I never thought I'd be able to own my own home, California Loan Associates made my dreams come true! Thank you for walking me through the loan process and making it a breeze!
