About Me

Why C2?

It's quite simple. As one of the largest mortgage brokers in the nation, C2 Financial gets preferred pricing and service from the great lenders we work with. This translates into better rates and quicker closings for you.

With having over 75 lenders to choose from, I have the incredible ability to 

  • Instantly shop for the lowest rates from the Top Lenders in the country competing for my business.
  • Fund transactions that other lenders can't approve.
  • Stay informed of the latest loan product offerings from the best lenders in the industry.

My personal philosophy

I let my clients make the decisions.

No Pressure.

No Commitments.

No Worries.


I simply offer honest and reliable mortgage market insight to ensure that each borrower has all the information they need to make the absolute best home-financing decisions for their future. Then I get the loan funded as efficiently as possible.

What people are saying about me

"In this day and age customer service is often a second thought as everyone is very cost conscious. I'm cost conscious but at the end of the day I value honesty, integrity and my time more. I selected Paul not because his rate was the cheapest, but because I believed he was being transparent, upfront and could get the job done on time.  He did a great job and was extremely responsive." Adam B

"I was initially referred to Paul by a friend who had bought a house in Irvine and had also refinanced it through Paul when the rates dropped even lower. When he recommended me, his exact words were, "I shopped around everywhere but couldn't find interest rates close to what Paul has gotten me." I have since worked with Paul on 2 purchases and 1 refinance. He is simply THE BEST." Manjot B

"I literally tell all my clients to save their time and effort and go talk to Paul at C2 Financial. It may sound cliche to say, but he has literally saved my clients from losing deals and has worked through weekends and holidays to get the job done. As an agent who gets solicited day and night by lenders, it's a breath of fresh air when someone actually comes through time and time again. Paul lets his actions do the talking." Brandon L (Agent)

"After trying to work with a major lender for more than two frustrating months having made no progress, Paul was able to step in, start from scratch, and get the job done well and efficiently. I truly appreciate his honest and straightforward approach from beginning to end. I can’t recommend Paul enough, and only wish I contacted him at the very start." Ryan E

"Paul is one of the most organized and helpful people I know! Our real estate agent referred us to him because of her many good experiences in the past, and he did not let us down. Between late night phone calls, proactive emails, and online document sharing/signing, he had us covered and was always available. Paul and his team are so on top of things that we were actually waiting for the seller at the end of escrow; they weren't waiting for us!" George A

"Dear Paul, thanks for getting the refinance completed. I appreciate your diligent efforts along with your team in bringing this complex loan to fruition.  It was a pleasure dealing with you and I truly appreciate your persistence, diligent efforts and professionalism during our transaction and I look forward to many future deals. I will certainly not hesitate recommending you to any friends or family who would be in need financial support." Izzat A

"Paul is my trusted go-to mortgage professional. I am a real estate agent that works with medium to high end clients and he comes through every time, without doubt! All my clients have been very impressed with Paul with how fast and responsive he is. He is transparent, concise and honest. When I refinanced my own house Paul was the clear choice. Not only for his services, but his cost and rates were better than any. Don't make the mistake of using anyone else but Paul on your next mortgage transaction, you will miss out!" Troyce M (Agent)

"Paul is very knowledgeable and great to work with!  He works with various lending institutions and can help buyers make the best decisions. I will continue to recommend Paul to all of my clients!" Marilyn R (Agent)

"Paul did an excellent job of getting us into our brand new home. We had a unique funding scenario which Paul managed confidently.  It felt we had a close friend working for us." Derek & Tessa M

"Not only is Paul extremely knowledgeable and dedicated, he is very reliable and we will look no further in the future as he truly has become our “loan consultant for life.” I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a genuinely devoted and hard working mortgage professional that truly cares about his customers and their best interests." Sherief G

"Paul and his team are extremely service oriented, great communicators, and exemplify the utmost integrity in every transaction. I look forward to working with Paul again in the future for my real estate and refinancing needs." David Z

"Paul Wickstrom is a knowledgeable, responsive, proactive and persistent mortgage broker.  Having never purchased a home before, Paul was there every step of the way providing us with reliable guidance through a somewhat intimidating process." Darren & Danielle B

"As a first time buyer, I was really nervous that securing a loan would be difficult; to me the process was a complete mystery.  Paul was extremely knowledgeable and patient and made the process simple, allowing me to feel confident that I was getting the best loan with the least amount of hassle." Matt R

"Paul Wickstrom gave us the best customer service when we bought our home. He kept us well-informed throughout the entire transaction answering every mortgage and real estate question we had. This is our first home and I couldn't have asked for a smoother and easier process. Thanks Paul!" Clint & Laura N
