Helping veterans and active duty service members become homeowners is the primary goal of Veterans United Home Loans of Hawaii. But the area’s Number One VA Purchase Lender* has additional priorities, such as educating and positively impacting the community they serve.

Veterans United’s Hawaii office seeks to spread the knowledge of the benefits of the VA Loan. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, only one in three service members understand, or even know about, the benefit of their VA Home Loan. Educating active duty service members and veterans in Hawaii about the power of a no-money-down VA Home Loan is the passion of Veterans United of Hawaii Branch Manager Tony Dias, a prior service U. S. Marine.

For the past 9 years Dias has held free monthly seminars on the VA Loan benefit at various locations throughout Hawaii. These free seminars cover everything service members and veterans need to know about the VA Loan, as well as credit counseling and answers to frequently asked questions.

This type of local education is what sets Veterans United apart from other lenders. Not only does the local Veterans United branch host free VA Loan seminars, they also give back to the military community through their employee-funded Veterans United Foundation. The charitable arm of Veterans United donates to various military-related organizations in the Hawaii area, in addition to funding scholarships and donating to individual families or service members. Veterans United of Hawaii considers their Foundation efforts a priority and an integral part of their company values.

“Giving back to the community we live in is something we really treasure,” Dias said. “Our community, which includes numerous veterans and active duty military, supports our local business and we feel it’s really important to support them in return with our employee-funded foundation.”

In consideration of these values, the Veterans United Home Loans home office chose the Hawaii branch for the Enhancing Lives Award at their corporate gathering and awards ceremony this year. The Enhancing Lives Award is presented to the branch that is most dedicated to enhancing the lives of veterans and service members in their local community.

They noted that “The Hawaii team and Tony Dias showed extreme dedication day in and day out to veterans in their community. Not only did the Hawaii office represent those values in 2016, but they also showed their dedication in 2013 when they earned the award for the first time. Veterans United Home Loans of Hawaii is the area’s Number One VA Lender, but this local business is more than that. It’s an organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of those who served our country.”
