About Us

Why Low VA Rates was Founded

We believe there are no better homeowners than you who have served our country in the military. You deserve the best service and the lowest mortgage rates possible. We take pride in helping veterans and servicemembers to get really good deals on loans that fit with their goals.

Veterans have learned many skills in the military, but you often haven’t been told about one of the greatest benefits available to you: VA home loans. When you talk to a loan officer at Low VA Rates, he or she will explain how VA home loans can help you and how to get one, guiding you through the simple steps.

We know that you’ve learned in the military to follow checklists. Your loan officer will give you a checklist, and we know we can trust you to go through it all. That’s one of the many reasons working with military personnel and veterans is so great.


Why Helping Veterans is Important to Low VA Rates

We know as a veteran, servicemember, or member of a military family, you can feel like no one understands what you’re going through. A loan company couldn’t understand you, right?

Many of us at Low VA Rates have close family who have served or are serving now. Some staff members are veterans themselves. Some of us served in the same wars as you. Even if a loan officer served in a current war while you served in a past war, he or she will still have a connection and rapport with you. Our officers want to help their military peers.

Other employees take our Veteran Insight course to understand the lives of military personnel. We deeply appreciate the sacrifices our veterans have made to preserve our freedoms. We want to give back to you in our small way.

We all believe in what we’re doing: we serve those who have served us. We make veterans and military personnel feel heard and understood. We work hard to get you the VA home loans and mortgage rates that will help you reach your goals and have the greatest life possible here at home in the country you’ve helped to protect.
