About Us

Sun Pacific Mortgage is a family owned and run company that was started by Forest and Lynn Tardibuono, in Sonoma County in January 1988. We offer our alternative financing for real estate throughout all of California.

From the moment we started, we have specialized in Borrowers who were “turned down elsewhere”.  We have always wanted to help others by offering an honest niche of real estate financial services. This financing is known as Hard Money or Private Money and is our specialty.

Such loans are mortgages funded by individuals. They make loans to borrowers who have equity in some existing real estate or are looking to buy real estate. Instead of getting a mortgage from the bank or other lending institution, you get a mortgage from an individual who lives locally, there are less qualifications and it’s faster to get the funds. If you have ever been turned down by the bank, call us, we might be able to do your loan!

Since 2013 we started working closely with other Realtors, Lenders and Brokers to complete transactions which require fast financing, save buyers who are turned down in the last hour by their bank or an underwriter and have assisted many Buyers/Borrowers to strengthen a purchase offer with an all-cash offer, ie. Hard Money loan, or no loan contingency.

We are successful and the proof of this are the many past customers returning or referring others to us as well as the long-term relationships with many Realtors, Lenders & Brokers and Investors we have been working with since 1988.   We look forward to being able to help you or someone you know!
