WHENEVER BANKERS LEARN ABOUT ANNE DALFIUME’S UNIQUE FINANCIAL PRACTICE, they often say in jest, “Are you hiring?”
That’s how fascinated and intrigued they are with Dalfiume’s specialized focus at her firm, Best Bank Option. Dalfiume shops clients’ loan objectives — lowest rates, fees, down-payment options — to multiple banks and then assists clients in the selection process.
Comparisons are made with the information gleaned from different lenders. The client then makes the decision regarding which bank fits their financial needs and goals.

Obtaining a business loan during that time period was more than difficult.

Recently, Dr. Adibi held his 38th annual Economic Forecast before a packed audience at the exclusive Center Club Orange County in Costa Mesa, Calif. Typically, he had the audience laughing (a few had tears in their eyes from laughter) yet at the same time they were seriously contemplating the impact the economy will have on California this year.
