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 Diamond View 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.

Thanks for making this happen!

Darren is the absolute best in the business! I had him fund 2 loans for me within the same year and he was able to do both no matter what obstacles were in the way. There are a ton of good lenders out there, but only a few great ones. Darren is a great one for sure!

My wife and I have been extremely satisfied and pleased with our recent home refinancing through Pacificwide Lending. From our first meeting with Andrew Liu and Darren Carlin, we were impressed with their straight forwarded and honest analysis and discussion of our needs. They discussed the pro’s and con’s of the various options and their recommendation for type of loan that would best fit our requirements, clearly answering our many questions, but exerted no pressure as to our final choice.
Then, with their timely, pleasant, and persistent assistance in providing and explaining the information required by the lender, and date of “locking-in” the Annual Percentage Rate, our loan was approved very quickly, within a month, with no problems. They were able to finalize the loan with the lender at a rate and cost below the initial estimate.
We highly recommend Pacificwide Lending, and both Andrew Liu and Darren Carlin specifically, to anyone considering a purchase or refinance loan. They were both efficient and pleasant to work with.

We always provide 5 star service, the best interest rates on our Mortgage Loan Products, full communication throughout the Loan Process and smooth, timely closings.
These guys are AWESOME!! Not being in the best financial situation, I was referred to them from a friend for a refinance. I’ve always heard horror stories about how these things go. It was the complete opposite from the moment Darren came to my home. He made everything simple and easy. Even after I messed up and threw a big wrench in the deal, he did a lot of footwork and was able put life back into it. All without adding a big stress or turning my life upside down. Big Thanks to Darren and Team for playing the role they did in getting my family into a better space. 5 Star Service front start to finish!! Thank You!!

"Hi Darren, I trust you are having a great long weekend. I Just wanted to take time to send you this note. From the moment I made the 1st call to your cell phone on a Saturday morning to the funding of the Loan within 3 business days is just unbelievable!
Your assuring voice after you have received and reviewed all the docs that you will be able to close this within a demanding deadline for 5 days is a testament to your confidence of making things happen.
You ensured before leaving on vacation to have my loan funded and assigning your VP to further answer any questions shows your commitment to customer service.
I am very fortunate to have found you. Looking forward to doing more business in the future.
Thank you and God Bless You and your Business!"
I'll make sure that all my agents know about the great job you did for me and recommend you highly.

I want to personally thank you for making this happen for Brian and Anastasia. They were so very relieved and just plain tickled to receive keys today. The house is so beautiful and I think they will be very happy with their new home for years to come.
Tracy and Steve – thank you again for recommending Darren. He got the job done at a time when we thought all was lost.
My best to you all, Ravi

It was a pleasure to work with Darren Carlin and Pacificwide Lending. Mr. Carlin was responsive to all questions, dependable and reliable in accomplishing the task at hand. I was most impressed with the turnaround and how quickly he is able to help his clients. Mr. Carlin made sure that all of our questions were addressed as soon as possible. He helped me out when I was stuck in a pickle and he walked me through it. We closed a conventional loan within 1 week. I am ever so grateful to him and his team. Thank You Darren!
Darren is the most amazing lender I have ever worked with. Astonishing.
Most of our deals are cash but we are thrilled to have you in our arsenal, we are blown away by you, Darren. Thank you!

To whom it may concern,
Obtaining a loan through Darren Carlin was an incredibly smooth experience. The home loan process is a complex one and requires a significant amount of documentation, but Darren and Andrew led me through the process with ease. They were always available and quick to respond to all my questions and concerns, even on weekends. Because of their diligence and speed, we were able to get loan approval within the narrow 10 day window I had for evaluating all my contingencies on the house. What I enjoyed most is that they provided their earnest insight into how the home loan process works. Anyone looking to finance the purchase of a home should definitely consider working with Darren Carlin.
Thank YOU Darren, it has been great to work with you. Appreciate all your help to make sure we can close on Monday afternoon. You are hands down one of the best lenders I have ever worked with!

Darren at Pacific Wide Lending was great to work with. He kept me informed throughout the whole loan process and was very responsive to all my questions. He was able to get me the lowest rates for my refinance. I recommended him to my sister and she was able to save over a thousand dollars a month. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him in the future.
