Veteran Loan Officer
My name is John Parker. I am a mortgage banker and military veteran, who started working exclusively with military veterans years ago after buying my own home. It was then I realized that most loan officers and mortgage brokers looked at veterans loans as 'too hard' and having 'too much paperwork'. They would try to steer veterans into loan programs that weren't in their best interest which often resulted in higher rates and fees, sometimes with heavy prepayment penalties.
It was then I decided to specialize in VA loans. I now have a team that is dedicated to working with veterans to insure that they take advantage of all the benefits available to them for their VA home loan. I graduated from high school in 1985 in Evergreen, Colorado and went directly into the Air Force as a Nuclear Weapons Specialist. Before receiving an honorable discharge after 10 years service, I also served as a Weapons Systems Quality Assurance Inspector and as a member of the Honor Guard. I was assigned to Carswell AFB, Texas; Comiso AB, Sicily; Rimini AB, Italy; and Dyess AFB, Texas. I served in support of Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
When everybody else was focusing on refinancing, I focused on slowly building my business within the niche of VA and government backed loans. I am a preferred lender for the Military Housing Assistance Fund, a non-profit organization that helps military members with closing costs.
