Veterans United Home Loans of Hawaii branch manager Tony Dias, a prior service U. S. Marine, began offering free VA Home Loan seminars eight years ago to educate Hawaii’s veterans about their VA loan benefit. Dias recognized that only a small percentage of veterans who could qualify for the best mortgage loan available were taking advantage of this benefit they had earned through their military service. To date, thousands of Hawaii veterans have qualified for mortgages through Veterans United.

Educational Seminars Key to Utilizing VA Benefit

Veterans United has continued to reach out to Hawaii veterans through an ongoing program of free monthly VA Home Loan seminars. Offered on Oahu and the Neighbor Islands, the educational seminars acquaint veterans and their families with the many advantages of buying a home with a VA Loan, such as:

• No down payment
• No private mortgage insurance
• Flexible terms
• Relaxed credit scores
• Excellent refinancing options

The Veterans United free VA Home Loan seminar series is the longest running in the state. Dias has pledged to continue the program until every hopeful homebuyer in Hawaii who has worn the uniform uses their VA Loan benefit.

Dias is also certified by the State of Hawaii to conduct Continuing Education classes for Realtors regarding the VA Loan Benefit and by the National Association of Realtors as an instructor in the NAR Military

Relocation Professionals program.

Giving Back – $100,000

Donated to Veterans & Community Charities

Financing home purchases and educational programs are only part of the Veterans United story. Giving back is another phase of the company’s service to veterans and the community. Through participation in the Veterans United Foundation – a nonprofit charitable organization founded in 2011 – Veterans United Home Loans of Hawaii gave out more that $100,000 last year to organizations that benefit veterans and the community. So far this year $75,000 has been raised. Dias added that the Foundation is totally funded by employees of local branches and the amounts raised are then matched by Veterans United headquarters.
