About Us

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

We have always specialized in Borrowers who were “turned down elsewhere” as we have a true personal desire to help others in the state of California with honest real estate financial services. This financing is known as Hard Money or Private Money, and is our specialty.

Private Money or Hard Money 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, so 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!

We are successful and take pride in taking extra care to educate our borrowers, buyers, affiliates and investors about the current market. The proof of our success is earlier customers returning and referrals from them to friends, family or even simple acquaintances. We look forward to being able to help you or someone you know!
