Bio: My name is Dan Ardis and I would personally like to welcome you to my lending website. I have been working in the mortgage industry since 2003, and my 15 years of industry experience ranges from Senior Specialty Underwriter, Vendor/Risk Management for a mortgage company with 5,000+ employees, Appraisal Management, to being a fully licensed Loan Officer for the state of California, and working right here in Bakersfield with San Joaquin Valley Mortgage. My goal is to be your lending advocate, and to make the mortgage process quick and painless for you and your family. I’m a broker, so I shop multiple lenders on your behalf giving you the most competitive rates, fees, loan options, programs, and I can close your loan faster than the big banks and retail lenders. I even offer private money loans with fewer requirements, so when banks can’t, I can! I’m your one stop shop for the best mortgage solutions, saving you time and money. I shop, so you don't have to. I look forward to meeting you and going over your options. The best part of my job is getting to help people during a big moment in their lives!

About Me: I'm a home grown Bakersfield native, having attended Bakersfield High School, Tevis Junior High, and Laurelglen Elementary. I’m a husband, a father, a musician, and I seek to have a business built with integrity and a genuine desire to care for people well, and put myself in their shoes. I think of others first, before myself… and I pride myself on hard work, great customer service, and being an expert in my field. I live and work right here in Bakersfield, and I am always available to help you. My hobbies include playing drums or piano/keyboards with multiple groups here in town, spending time with my wife and toddler aged son, serving in my church, leading a small group in my home, and watching/attending basketball and baseball games. You can also catch me watching Food Network nerding out on cooking/baking techniques, or HGTV checking out home design ideas.
