Branch Manager, VA Mortgage Center of Hawaii
President, VA Loans Hawaii
A transition that will help more veterans take advantage of their home loan benefits is finally complete.
After five great years, our homegrown VA Loans Hawaii has teamed with VA Mortgage Center.com to create VA Mortgage Center of Hawaii. Partnering with the nation’s leading dedicated VA lender will help us better serve military home buyers and their families.
We are thrilled to be holding our official grand opening celebration next Saturday, August 20. As our customers and scores of Hawaii real estate agents already know, I have a passion for spreading awareness of the power of VA loans.
Getting to meet and spend time with military members and their families is one of the best parts of the job. What’s even more rewarding is helping them achieve the dream of homeownership, which for many couldn’t come to fruition without the significant financial benefits of the VA loan program.
These flexible, no-down payment loans are more important than ever given the current lending climate. There’s no other loan program available that gives veterans and their families this type of buying power.
Nearly 90 percent of the VA loans issued last year came with no down payment. That’s an incredible benefit, and it makes buying a home possible for scores of service members and veterans who might otherwise struggle to secure financing or pull together a down payment.
We’re now in a tough lending environment. Mortgage companies have tightened their belts in response to the subprime meltdown and the housing market collapse.
But our partnership with the national leader ensures that Hawaii’s veterans and active duty personnel can still reap the benefits earned by their service.
More than 700,000 service members have come to VA Mortgage Center.com for help with their home loan benefits since 2002. They have an unparalleled track record of service and expertise.
That pedigree of performance, combined with our commitment to Hawaii’s military community, makes for a dynamic opportunity for those who serve our nation.
We’ve worked diligently the past five years to make VA Loans Hawaii an indispensable resource for veterans, real estate agents, and the community at large. Our vision for VA Mortgage Center of Hawaii is to build on that foundation, backed by the country’s most experienced and knowledgeable VA loan team.
As with VA Loans Hawaii, we will continue offering monthly free educational seminars for veterans, both active and reserve, and their families.
