“I’ll do whatever I can to take care of someone. They’re always number one,” Brenda “The Lenda” Dintino-Duran explains, as she discusses her career in the mortgage industry. People-oriented, service driven and determined, it is no wonder Brenda has been in the business for 36 years. She got her start in Colorado, after a temp agency told her about an opening in a mortgage office. She did backside servicing for the first 15 years, and then began doing upfront originating. From the moment she started, she found it intriguing and exciting. Brenda has worked with various companies over the years, and today is with New American Funding in Tustin. Top mortgage professional in California Brenda Dintino serves all of California, and helps all types of clients with their mortgage needs.

What sets her apart in this industry is her commitment to do whatever it takes to get a client approved. “I like to take the time and do the credit fixes and things like that. I certainly don’t turn anyone away that wants to buy a house,” she explains. Whether that means waiting until their credit improves and encouraging them to buy later, or telling them what they need to do to get approved as soon as possible, she is always honest and upfront. “I tell the truth, I don’t like to beat around the bush. I always let them know whether it’s good news or bad news.” If anything bad ever comes up, she makes sure to get a hold of the client immediately. “Communication is always open.”

That communication stays open even after the transaction is over. She stays in touch with them, and is always happy to be their loan officer again when it’s time to buy another home. “We make people happy and get them into homes, that’s the ultimate goal.” After her clients work with her, they leave her glowing testimonials, raving about her professionalism and knowledge.

One recent review read, “Brenda Dintino, her processor Becky Williamson and the whole team are incredible to work with. They treat you like family are very helpful in regards to addressing questions, concerns and going over different loan options. I am very happy with the entire loan process. Brenda sat down with me and gave me a break down, with clear explanations, of all my different loan options so that I could make the best decision, it really helped and gave me peace of mind about what I was getting myself into. I got a killer deal, the process was painless and I am super happy in the new home! I just closed escrow and I really appreciate everything that the team did to get me to the finish line!”

In addition to her devotion to the mortgage industry, Brenda also makes time for the community and hobbies. She helps out at the food bank and at other organizations whenever she can. She also loves cooking on weekends and enjoys having her family come over.

After decades in the business, Brenda is just as passionate about it today as she was when she first started. She never tires of helping people, and loves all of the rewards this industry offers.

“Being in the mortgage business is helping people and having a good feeling about the job that you do. I always believed that whatever you do, you should do it and be the best. I try to be the best at what I do. It’s a great business and the best reward is working with people and seeing them happy at the end.”
