As a realtor here in Phoenix and someone who calls it home, I primarily deal with Veterans and VA loans as my “niche” market. Personally, I believe there is no better loan out there than a VA loan for many reasons, one of which is zero money down.
One of the things I do on a regular basis is set up a small table at the Phoenix VA every couple of weeks and advertise my company, Semper Find My Home. It’s a quick and easy way to get as much exposure for our services to fellow veterans, particularly when it comes to buying or selling a home in Phoenix.
On a daily basis there are thousands of veterans who walk the halls and I get to see vets from WWII till the present and everything in between. A recent report though from the VA’s own internal rating system (based on 1-5 stars) ranked the Phoenix VA at one star.
This is troublesome on many levels, particularly as a service connected disabled veteran myself, I get treated at this facility. You can read the entire report on my other blog at AlexPopovic.com
