Who We Are

The C.A.R.E. Advisory Network is an organization with the sole purpose of giving back to those who give the most by helping individuals and communities. We are a collection of highly rated professionals whose mission is to help prospective home buyers with solutions to be able to better afford and experience the joys of home ownership.

Founder & Industry Leader, Chris Diaz, has served the community for over 20 years in real estate and mortgage based ventures. The C.A.R.E. Advisory Network is his solution for bringing clarity and guidance to those looking for expertise with how to satisfy their real estate and mortgage needs.

This isn’t the first time he’s brought solutions to Southern California either. You may remember the column he wrote for the OC Register for several years, during the financial crisis. While many people were struggling, Chris and his team at Charis Financial (pronounced Care-Is) were busy providing effective solutions and assistance for people looking to avoid foreclosure.  When the OC Register asked him to help the community at large, he gladly obliged.

There has always been a desire for service excellence by this team, and in 2012, Charis Loans was started to help homeowners reenter the mortgage market. Since it’s founding, Charis Loans has helped thousands of people with their mortgage. The California Real Estate Advisory Network, launched in late 2018, is now serving 5 Southern California Counties and several different service minded professions along with new home buyers.

What We Offer

Once we answer all of your questions about buying/selling/refinancing, we walk you through how a lender will qualify you, then the CARE Advisory Network will partner you up with a highly rated Loan Officer and Real Estate Agent, who have agreed to credit a portion of their commission towards your closing costs, saving you thousands.  It’s our way of giving back to you!

What investments or other large purchases do you make where you go shopping before you know how much you can afford? That is the most common approach to home buying, though.

Taking a “do it yourself” approach to payment estimation is a lot like throwing darts at a board. How disappointed would you be if you looked at a house you thought you could afford, fell in love with it, only to be told that you couldn’t? 

What about if you had a 6 month plan to buy, only to find out that a decision you just made cost you 2 years of waiting?

These are real problems that happen daily in the Real Estate/Mortgage industry and are what we’re trying to help you avoid. Spending the time upfront with a top professionals will save you from experiencing huge letdowns like these and potentially thousands of dollars in costs. That’s what our initial consultation is for.  Buying a house should be an exciting time, not a nightmare.

All of our network partners have a proven track record of excellent service ratings and production, so you’re getting the industry’s best, and saving money! Your benefit amount is based on the price/loan amount, proportionally. Schedule your free appointment to see what your benefit amount is.
