We believe it’s important to help veterans, military service members, and their surviving spouses realize the dream of home ownership, and we’re honored to assist you through the process of obtaining a VA mortgage or VA home loan.
Whether you are looking for a home within the Capital District region of Albany, Saratoga and Glens Falls NY, near a military base like Fort Drum, or in a location elsewhere within New York State, we can help you understand and explore your financing options and find the home loan that’s right for you.
Private lenders (mortgage companies and banks) are the ones who provide VA home loans. However, if eligible, you can get more favorable terms on VA mortgages than you might with conventional mortgages. Why? Because the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) guarantees a portion of the loans.
The first step to obtaining a VA mortgage in New York is to determine if you’re eligible to participate. As experienced mortgage brokers, our home mortgage professionals are knowledgeable about the VA’s requirements, and the factors that might affect your eligibility such as length of military service and your duty status.
We’ll also guide you to the VA loan program that’s best-suited to you and your specific situation, and then we’ll take you through the entire mortgage application process from start to finish. We’ll help you understand what documentation you’ll need to secure a Certificate of Eligibility (COE), which you’ll need to present to lenders within NY as proof that you qualify for a VA-backed loan. As we work through processing your loan, you’ll find the lines of communication are always open. You’re welcome to ask questions, and we’ll always answer them honestly and promptly.

We are a mortgage broker who works with several third party providers, giving us the flexibility to match homebuyers with loans that best meet their needs. This means we process VA eligible loans. We do not fund these loans ourselves and we are not affiliated with any government agencies, including the VA.
Additionally, a number of our team members are Certified Veteran Lending Specialists, meaning that they hold a CVLS certification from the National Association of Mortgage Brokers (NAMB). This certification proves our dedication to providing top level service and knowledgable assistance to veterans seeking to obtain VA home loans, setting us apart from other lenders who may offer VA mortgages but are unable to provide the same expertise.
