Find the Loan That's Right For You

Whether it’s your first home or your retirement oasis, CSMC Mortgage is a solution-focused lender. We have a wide range of loan options to meet your unique needs. Our loan officers are here to help educate you on the different loan products so you can decide which loan product best fits your needs.


Conventional loans are loans that are not backed by a government agency and are subject to the county loan limits in your area.


Jumbo loans are loans that are over the county loan limits that are typically close to or over the million-dollar range. These loans are best suited for high dollar purchases and will require at least a 5-10% down payment.


With a reverse mortgage, homeowners 62+ can get cash from their property’s equity while still owning and living in the home. We work directly with NRMLA approved lenders, ready to help you keep the home you worked hard to own.


An FHA loan is a government-backed mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration, or FHA. Popular with first-time homebuyers, FHA home loans require lower minimum credit scores and down payments than many conventional loans. They offer as low as 3.5% down payment, which can be 100% gifted from a family member.


Non-Qualified Mortgage or Non-QM Loans offer many different options to qualify such as Bank Statement loan, Profit and Loss/CPA verified earnings loans, Debt Service or Investor loans, Cross Collateralization, EIN or a Foreign National loan.


Veterans Affairs (VA) Home Loans are provided by lenders, such as banks and mortgage companies. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling the lender to provide you with more favorable terms, such as low or no down payment. You’ve Served Us. Now Let Us Serve You.

“This review is about Mark and Darci Richardson from CSMC Mortage in Simi Valley. This team is the BEST! For the past 12 years our home was "underwater" due to the "crash" in 2007, and unable to do anything with the mortgage except pay it. These two kept on top of things and finally the house qualified to REFI. We just completed everything and it closed last week... and they saved us over $900 a month!! That's a huge savings for a couple of senior citizens! We are SO happy now and finally can breathe. Thanks to Mark and Darci and CSMC Mortgage for following through, jumping through all the hoops necessary and helping us out! I can't recommend them more... they are the BEST!!!”

“Laura Hertz is the best lender I've ever worked with in my 25 years as a Realtor. I never have to worry that she has things handles and she always performs in the best way possible. I also know that she is an advocate for my buyers and not only does she meet their expectations but she exceeds them! She is my lender for life!”

“Faye helped me purchase my first home last year. She was very professional and worked very quickly to help me procure financing. She made herself available around my schedule and took the time to explain my options for financing to help me get the lowest rate possible. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone that is professional, highly knowledgeable, polite, and responsive.”

- James Z.

“Darci, Mark and their team of professionals made the purchase for our amazing buyers absolutely seamless. The level of service they provide is second to none! They delivered the best rate and the best terms for the clients. Mark and Darci are very transparent with their fees and have a stellar reputation in the community. I highly recommend Darci and Mark for all your mortgage needs!”
