It's been 28 years since I last purchased a home. This current process was time consuming! I'm self employed and own a small consulting firm and I felt at times like the lender/underwriter thought I was laundering money. Maybe I'm being over sensitive but in my opinion, there's was way too much unnecessary and repetitious documentation requested and perhaps not enough focus placed on my credit worthiness (35+ years of outstanding credit), ability to pay and 800+ credit score. It took 52 days from offer to funding. Regardless, I'm done with this and I'm heading to the Pacific Northwest to enjoy my vacation home.
I don't recommend Veterans United unless you are prepared for delays in your home buying process. It was quite challenging getting the process done and with three additional contract extensions it was disappointing and caused me to relocate from my previous home due to the blown timeline on their part.

As usual, the experience with Veterans United and all of the people involved in my refinance was smooth, professional and went off without a hitch. Each and every one of the people I dealt with took the time to answer all of my questions and made the experience easy. Thanks to everyone involved.
Please use my original statement above. I was extremely impressed with your entire organization/operation. Thank you again.
If you're nervous about using Veterans United to buy your home, don't be. The process is really stress-free and easier than you might think. Use your VA home loan benefit by using VU. Also, their rates were much lower than USAA and a couple of other banks. Highly, highly recommend.
I can’t say enough about my loan experience. Ella Owens was amazing!! She was there every step of the way and always available for any questions. I am to the moon pleased with Ella. My loan officer for life!! I will be recommending Ella to all my friends and family.

Veterans United provides the best experience when buying a house. The buying process is simplified through an easy to-do list and there are great benefits that come with choosing Veterans United. I was able to get a great rate, assistance with closing costs, and referrals for both a realtor and homeowners insurance. We really felt like valued customers with Veterans United and would recommend to anyone.
