The Cardenas Mortgage Team

Get to know Brian Scott Cardenas

Brian began his mortgage career as a mortgage loan officer in 1992 straight out of college. He worked for two large national mortgage banking companies and a large mortgage brokerage before co-founding and serving as President of Antigua Capital Funding from 1999 to 2010. Brian joined Skyline Home Loans as a Branch Manager because he was looking for a company that was forward thinking and works to put the power of home ownership back in the hands of the consumer by providing the products, technology, great rates, and incredible service that his clients want and deserve. Finance of America acquired Skyline and has expanded the financial stability and options available to help our clients manage their debt and build wealth for their future.
As a veteran loan officer, Brian has committed himself to listening to his clients and providing them with the financing solution that best serves their needs. By educating his clients on the process and setting the proper expectations, Brian's clients are never subjected to those horror story surprises that so many people have unfortunately had in past with other mortgage companies. Always putting his clients' needs and best interests first is Brian's top priority and what has made his business nearly 100% referral based for the last two decades.
The only thing that comes ahead of Brian's clients is his family. Brian's son, Evan, has been working with Brian since 2014 and is a Loan Partner on The Cardenas Team. Brian has been married to his wife Dina since 1992 and is a devoted father to his son Evan and daughter Cassandra. Brian's family lives in Cave Creek and enjoys movies, dinners out, the beach, golfing, and going to Suns, Cardinals, and Diamondback games.
Brian also supports the Best Buddies Program and the Make a Wish Foundation. To learn more, visit my Finance of America Mortgage website at

We have extensive experience in all areas of residential financing.  While some lenders might say they specialize in one type of loan or another, we specialize in meeting the needs of our clients.  Whether it is for first-time buyers, investors, luxury homes, weak credit or any other situation we've done it.  We pride ourselves in making sure that if there is a solution to be found for a particular buyer's needs we will find it.  And we don't stop in just finding any solution, we make sure that we continue to research and shop so that we can be confident in our recommendation.  If we limited ourselves to being so called "experts" in one type of loan, we become product pushers and not mortgage consultants. Rest assured, I've seen it all over the last 20 years and if there is a way to get things done...I'll find it.
