About VA Home Buyer Success

VA Home Buyer Success was founded by real estate and mortgage professionals to educate veterans and active-duty service members on their VA home loan benefit. 

The VA loan is one of the most powerful tools veterans have at their disposal, yet so many people are unclear about how to make the most of their benefit. 

Our workshops aim to provide you with the tools you need to make an educated decision about homeownership. We highlight the pros and cons of the VA home loan, provide an analysis of the real estate market, and walk you through the home buying process.

Owning a home is one of the best things a person can do for themselves and their family. Come learn how to use your VA benefit to invest in your future.


What to Expect

Our workshops bring industry experts to the front lines for you. A panel of the best in the industry will answer your questions and help with your personal plan to reach homeownership.​

We will guide you through:

  • Achieving homeownership with your BAH

  • What costly pitfalls to avoid when purchasing

  • Credit questions and solutions

  • Determining how much you can REALLY afford with the VA loan

  • Benefits of buying vs. renting

  • The home buying process


Meet the Experts
