My wife and I felt compelled to share our story with other veterans and their families. This is a true story of frustration and disappointment but, thanks to Tony Dias, it has a happy ending.

Due to an increase in family members, we decided to tear down our house and build a new and larger home. The mortgage was manageable, but we had to do some belt tightening, as I was recently retired and my wife was near retiring.

After our home was completed, we attempted to have our mortgage reduced by refinancing. I will not bore you with the months of wasted time, frustration, and emotional strain we endured. We came through those experiences emotionally drained and disappointed in our lending institutions. We finally gave up.

Now fast forward to February 2. I was listening to 107.9 and heard an interview with someone named Tony from VA Mortgage. It wasn’t so much what he was saying that caught my attention, but the way he was saying it. I could hear Tony telling me,”if you need help, I can help you.” I made a reservation to be at his seminar on February 3.

We cannot thank Tony enough for what he has done for us. No “jumping through hoops,” no fruitless, time-consuming, unnecessary sessions. The bottom line is savings, and “Tony the Terrific” reduced our monthly mortgage payment by $1,200.

We are forever grateful to Tony and his staff.

I want to thank you and Chris for the hard work and dedication you put into helping Adolfo and I make our dream come true. Chris was amazingly professional, and while you were away he kept me informed about details in the re-finance process. He was understanding and patient…he made the process easy and fast which was a tremendous help since my better half is away. He welcomed my questions and addressed them with courtesy and in a timely manner.

Thank you for all you have done for our family!!! Have a blessed and wonderful day!!!

We had an opportunity to work with Grischa Hendreschke on our loan for our condo purchase in KoOlina Coconut Plantation. He was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable, and went the “extra mile” in helping us with a difficult and unique situation. He paid close attention to the loan rates and locked the rate at the most opportune moment. We highly recommend Grischa to anybody needing help with the loan process.

I am writing to share that our home buying experience was greatly enhanced by working with Grischa Hendreschke as our Loan Officer. He was tremendously helpful, proactive, and responsive and I would (and do) recommend him and your company. He returned calls quickly, responded to information requests promptly, and did so with great aloha spirit. He is a credit to your company and represents you superbly.

Jay Oku and Veterans United have continually earned Hawaii Military Realty clients’ business because they have their best interest in mind and get the job done…we know our service members will not be baited and switched and that their closing costs will not be higher than they expected.

Having processing and underwriting in their office in Waipio has made our closings timely and the process less stressful.

Jay and I have helped numerous active duty soldiers and veterans purchase real estate in Hawaii. Many lenders prequalify without verifying data which puts my sellers at risk of having the loan fall out…so I now suggest that buyers get preap-proved with Veterans United first because they have a higher standard of doing business.
