Darren Carlin was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He is a 30+ year highly polished sales and finance career professional. For over two decades he was the finance director for several large organizations. Although lucrative positions, he did not find them personally satisfying. While considering his options for a more rewarding career, he found his calling in luxury real estate sales and finance in the San Francisco Bay area. He was promoted quickly due to his dedication to excellence to Vice President and Jr. Partner of Pacificwide Lending. In 2016 Darren decided to further his career and move he & his family to Beautiful San Diego California to open his own mortgage brokerage, Valor Lending Group. The agency opened in the very prestigious DiamondView Tower, 10th floor at Petco Park. Valor Lending Group has been able to attract and retain some very talented loan officers and the business is growing every day.

Valor Lending Group mission statement; “To provide an extremely high level of service that makes each of our clients feel though they are our only client”.

“Pride in lending”
