When we started Cardinal Financial, we set out with the intention of creating a better mortgage experience. We wanted to reimagine and modernize the way home loans are obtained by bringing increased transparency, simplicity, and speed into an industry that has oftentimes lacked all three. Our business is fueled by our passion for connecting people to the home of their dreams. A lot of lenders will tell you they’re the best, but at Cardinal Financial, we can prove it.Lean Mean Mortgage MachineWe prefer a lean, flat organizational structure where all employees have contact with upper management in order to elevate suggestions and escalate questions. We remove silos and foster cross-functional and associate relationships. This approach sets us up to move fast and work efficiently without the burden of red tape and bottlenecks. Plus, the less we spend on multiple managers reporting to each other, the more we have to invest in you. A Need for SpeedThe world is moving faster than ever and we believe you’ve got to be fast if you want to be the best. That’s why we’ve invested in building our own proprietary loan origination system that removes friction, compresses turn times, and streamlines the lending process. It’s fast, efficient, scalable, and always improving. We’re a team of innovators, so it doesn’t end with technology. Coupled with our efficient internal processes, we’ve continued to be thriving and profitable even in an ever-changing, unpredictable market.The Common GoodWe believe that the success of the team is more important than that of the individual. Our team is comprised of doers who share a problem-solving mentality and a passion for working toward solutions. We hold each other accountable and expect the best from each other in order to execute our mission. Every action we take as individuals cultivates and models our culture of empathy, expertise, execution, and efficiency from the top down. No one is too good to roll up their sleeves.
