My name is Steven Darling and I'm the Owner/Wholesale Mortgage Broker/Sr. Loan Officer/Direct Lender at Your Darling Lender/Darling Homes & Estates. I believe integrity and honesty is the only way to live life and I reflect that through my business. I'm a top performer with a track record of consistently meeting and exceeding client goals and customer expectations. I put myself in my client's shoes, understanding the level of significance and emotion that comes with buying a home. My main and true objective is to do all I can to succeed in helping YOU accomplish YOUR goals.

I have been working in the Real Estate/Mortgage business for a total of over 20 years. I've worked over 2000 real estate & mortgage transactions in my career and have seen the market come full circle multiple times and have molded or changed to each cycle accordingly.

Throughout my career, I have garnered exceptional negotiation skills, expertise in government financing such as VA and FHA. I treat my clients like family and am dedicated to their satisfaction. My long-time relationships in this business have helped me achieve greater offer responses and acceptance than the average loan officer. Additionally, having been a lender for over 19 years has given me unmatched knowledge to help when your discussing terms and negotiating factors of a transaction.

I moved to San Diego County in 1999 and have established a home for my wonderful wife, and 3 amazing children here. I try to take an active role in our community with my church, youth sports, charity gatherings and events. My time here has given me extensive knowledge of the local market and understanding of the community. I also make it a point to stay up to date on trend reports. Any questions or concerns that you may have about the area, I will be able to answer them.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit more about me. I consider myself a very dynamic and highly motivated result-oriented gentleman with over 19 successful years of experience with Buyers, Sellers, and Mortgagors. Integrity is my essential ingredient. No matter where you fall in the Mortgage Loan Spectrum, I am confident we can help you and would honor the opportunity to earn your business as your Loan Officer for Life.
