Veterans United Home Loans of Hawaii
NMLS #222836

Since 2016, Veterans United Home Loans of Hawaii has helped more veteran and military homebuyers become homeowners than any other lender in the state. As Hawaii’s #1 VA purchase lender, Veterans United has built a legacy of providing an excellent homebuying experience.

In 2016 alone, Veterans United of Hawaii helped more than 981 veterans find homes in Hawaii. This is their passion and mission! In addition, Veterans United of Hawaii goes beyond the homebuying process to positively affect homebuyers and the community through the employee-funded Veterans United Foundation. Since its inception in 2011, the foundation has raised more than $1 million for local charities, organizations, and military families to positively impact the community.


The invaluable VA Loan education offered by Veterans United over the years has contributed significantly to the ability of so many of their clients to become successful homeowners. The educational program, like no other offered locally, is carried out with monthly free seminars offered to prospective homebuyers, their families, and even local real estate agents.

At a Veterans United VA home loan seminar, attendees learn about the VA Loan basics, including eligibility information, credit repair and much more. Attendees also have the chance to ask experienced VA Loan specialists – many of whom are veterans themselves – questions in a comfortable learning environment. These VA Loan experts are uniquely aware of the stresses that military home-buyers endure to become homeowners because of their own military experience.

The team at Veterans United of Hawaii strives to relieve those stresses through oneon-one consultations at their local office. Homebuyers never have to worry about being left in the dark about their home loan process or have questions go unanswered. Customers can even access their home loan team via a one-of-a-kind app called MyVU.

For homebuyers concerned with credit qualifications, Veterans United of Hawaii offers complimentary credit repair guidance. This credit repair program, called Lighthouse, isn’t offered by the majority of lenders, and it gives homebuyers an opportunity to improve their credit portfolio even after years of credit trouble. The program is offered at no cost and, on completion, homebuyers are not obligated to choose Veterans United as their lender. But with a smooth and seamless home loan process featuring in-house processing, underwriting and closing teams, why would the homebuyer choose any other lender?

The team at Veterans United strives to get their customers to the closing table faster with their in-house production teams and time-zone-specific underwriters. These teams work closely with loan officers and communicate constantly so home-buyers go from application to closing in the most efficient way possible.

Veterans United of Hawaii’s production numbers back up the fact that they’re passionate about serving military homebuyers: 99 percent of their loan production is VA Loan. The lender’s history of serving Hawaii’s military homebuyer community while providing excellent VA Loan education and giving back to the community is what sets them apart from other mortgage lenders. All of this comes together to provide homebuyers with the Veterans United advantage. Experience it for yourself today!
