All About VA LOANS For Our Military Members

All About VA LOANS For Our Military Members

In additional to being a Realtor, I am also a newly commissioned officer serving as the 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force Reserves Medical Service Corp unit. I have not applied for a VA Loan yet but after reviewing all the videos below, I would definitely like to utilize this great benefit for myself as well as encourage other qualified military personnel! For additional information, go to www.ebenefits.va.gov and check out the videos below.
