Scott Whitlock moved to Napa, CA at the age of three and has always felt at home in Wine Country, pursuing a career in the wine industry before becoming a Loan Officer. A graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Scott moved back to Napa to purchase a home and raise his five children (four boys and one girl). As a proud father, he understands the importance of taking care of family and finding the right loan for each customer, priding himself on integrity of choosing the client’s interests over his own.
A disabled veteran, Scott has made specializing in VA loans and working with the military community a priority, though with over 17 years of lending experience, he stays current on a wide variety of programs, including FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Jumbo loans. With his extensive experience, Scott understands the importance of having the right program for the customer purchasing a home. While there are a number of other lenders available, there are none who work as hard as Scott and his team.
“A big reason I decided to go into the loan industry was based on my first home buying experience. I was young and had no idea how complicated it was to purchase a home, and we had to rely and trust upon the expertise of those who had been in the industry.
“When you purchase a home, it’s not like a car, you are invested for much longer and the decisions you make ultimately have greater consequences. After I purchased my first home, I wanted to help others achieve that same dream, and so I took the necessary steps to get to where I am today.
“Cardinal is the best at what they do, and they offer extremely competitive rates. A lot of what we do is educating the customer so that they can make an informed decision regarding their future. We truly care about the customer and that is very apparent when you talk to anyone who works here.”
"I worked with the Scott Whitlock on the purchase of my first home. He helped me tremendously navigating all the information and details involved. As a first-time home buyer, I really appreciated his honesty, helpfulness and patience answering all my many, many questions and concerns. Scott was always quick to respond and sticked with me for a very long time through all the homes and bids in the San Francisco Bay Area. I couldn't have found a better person on my side than Scott for my first home!"

Not only was he very knowledgeable on all process of the loan, but he was also very personable. Scott made efforts to continually assure us everything was going well and kept us up-to-date on everything. It wasn't just his professionalism that makes him great, it's also the fact that he takes a personal interest in you.
