Your VA Experts
Ken and Karen Bates know more than a little bit about VA benefits: they bought their first house by using nothing more than a $500 credit card deposit and their financing options from Veterans Affairs. They’ve come a long way since then, having built an extremely successful mortgage company by leveraging their expertise in VA purchases.
Ken spent twelve years in the Navy as a Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) in the F-14 Tomcat – just like “Goose” in Top Gun. Karen served eight years in the Navy as an Air Traffic Controller before marrying Ken, and then another eight years as a military wife. After Ken’s 12 years of active duty, with three deployments and seven moves behind them, his naval career landed their family in San Diego where they purchased their 2nd home and found their life’s passion: helping other military families use their VA benefits to purchase one of the biggest pieces of the American dream – their own home.
Why? The very act of moving is stressful enough. Add to that the additional challenge of finding a new mechanic, hairdresser, doctor, dentist and other service providers… So when it comes to a mortgage, it is imperative that our military members have a company available with a strong reputation for knowledge of VA benefits, the highest standards of integrity and service, and a team who understands the unique needs of our military families.
