Star Darden, a senior loan officer with C2 Financial Corporation is devoted to helping senior find the best Reverse Mortgage that fits your goals. Financial institutions’ loan criteria and regulations vary and can be extremely confusing. 

There are so many options to consider when refinancing or buying with a Reverse Mortgage.  Star has been in the real estate industry for over 30 years, giving her expertise in Reverse, Conventional, FHA, VA, and Construction mortgages. 

She will discuss your personal situation and match you with the right lender.  Her specialty is helping seniors decide the correct mortgage for their goals. While Star understands that a Reverse Mortgage may not be right for everyone; it has helped many to relieve some of the financial stress and worry related to retiring.

Before becoming a residential loan officer she was an escrow officer, a commercial loan underwriter; and she managed a nationally acclaimed HUD Housing Rehabilitation Program.  Many of her HUD Housing clients had their homes remodeled for the special needs of senior living. After those modifications were made, seniors were able to live comfortably in their homes for many, many more years.

Star holds a California Real Estate License; and, a California, Washington, and Oregon State NMLS Originator's license: is a CSA (Certified Senior Advisor) and a Member of NRMLA (National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association).

She has a BA in Education: taught K-6 which gave her the ability to be flexible with great communication skills. She treats each client with special care; always going the extra mile. Many of her clients view her as a trusted lifelong friend.

Star made it possible for me to buy my home with a reverse mortgage. I never dreamed it was possible, but Star made it happen for me! She is relentless in working through all the issues that come up to close a loan and does what it takes to close on time. The people Star has on her team must live up to her rigorous standards and her commitment to work with her client’s individual needs. I highly recommend Star to assist you with success in your real estate acquisitions. With gratitude to Star!Michaele G Salem, Oregon


“I put my career on hold to care for my ailing mother.  Thankfully, under my attentive care, she lived for many years.  When she did pass, I was well into retirement age, living in my beautiful home with a small mortgage, tons of equity: house poor.    The plan that suited my goals was to pay off the mortgage and rebuild my retirement “financial safety net.  With Star’s help I took a huge, worrisome burden off my shoulders.”  Robert W.  San Diego, California.
