“VA Lending Group has the best rates and the best customer service of any lender I have used in my 40+ years of home ownership.”

Over the years of home ownership, I have received many offers to refinance under various programs. Their team kept in contact with me constantly to keep me updated about the process, and made it extremely easy.

Glenn Boker

“VA Lending Group produced great results for our family by reducing our mortgage rate and term length significantly—at a time when rates are at an all-time low”.

Patrick Crawford and his team at VA Lending Group were a breeze and a pleasure to work with. They made what can be a very tedious and lengthy process into a very simple method. We refinanced with a VA IRRRL and could not be more pleased with knowing we have the best rate possible while maintaining a comfortable monthly payment. Thank you, Patrick, for a job very well done!

“Refinancing with VA Lending Group was an extremely easy and seamless process.”

Amanda Truesdell was absolutely amazing. She returned calls promptly, was friendly, yet remained professional, and she explained things in layman terms, which was a relief. I had no idea that refinancing could be such an easy process.

Thanks Amanda! And thank you VA Lending Group for hiring the very best loan personnel to assist veterans with refinancing.

Jeffery Fairow

“The refinance went through without a hitch and I didn’t even have to leave my house because they had all the closing paperwork brought to me. My overall experience was top notch.”

I had spoken to 3 banks that I use and was turned away from all them. Then I called Austin with VA Lending Group. He not only assured me that I could save money & lower my APR, but that I would also be able to reduce the years on my mortgage. He wrote up all the specifics in a simple to understand package and overnighted it to me. It made the decision process very easy and I was so impressed, I recommended VA Lending Group to my 2 nephews both of whom are former military. I would like to extend my appreciation and thanks to Austin and everyone at VA Lending Group for their hard work.

Allen Mishler, United States Air Force

My military title when I retired was a Sergeant First Class (E-7), an enlisted service member in the U.S. Army.

Take care and God Bless!

“There are some companies out there who do take care of veterans! That is important to me because I’m a 22 years Army retired vet.”

When I first received the letter in the mail, stating that they could easily refinance my home, it was hard to call Patrick and his team because for 2 years I had been told that I do not qualify.

But I said oh well let’s try one more time AND it worked! All of the questions I asked were answered and the paperwork was done in a timely manner. Thank you guys very much!

Gregory Eleeson, U.S. Army

“In a lender, you look for trust…and you look for communication and you’re going to get both of those at VA Lending Group.”

I love them, and if you want somebody who’s thorough, who’s going to take you through the loan process from beginning to end successfully, you want to go with VA Lending Group. They’re going to come through and make sure that your transaction is closed successfully and one that leaves you with a smile on your face like Erica has done myself. They’re a great team there, and they’re going to do what they said they were going to do.

Tameka Studevan

“Steve and I have really enjoyed working with VA Lending Group!  While Patrick Crawford, Loan Officer, was our initial point of contact, the transition between him and Erica Harris was smooth and uneventful.”

Erica was instrumental in the processing of our IRRRL thru the VA and was forthcoming and upfront with all documentation. She was easy to work with, flexible, turned things around expeditiously and was thorough. The team inspired confidence and peace of mind which has been by far our easiest loan processing to-date. I would highly recommend VALG, Erica, & her team to anyone needing to finance or refinance their home.

Finally, Timely, Accurate, Affordable and Effective! What more could we ask for!? Now Steve & I have adopted Erica.

Very Satisfied Customers!!!!

Steve & Peggy Johnson

“Austin, you are a man of your word, you stood by us, and got us through this process with ease. I know a lot of times people just say this is your job, but it’s the way you go about doing your job that makes a difference”.

I just want to thank you for all your support. I really appreciate the way you handled our loan. Even though I was a little concerned about how this was going to go, you put me at ease and assured me things were going to work out okay and they certainly did. I want to personally thank you. Thank you for your professionalism and outstanding support that you gave us during this process of refinancing. I will definitely send someone your way if I know they are looking for the opportunity to refinance. Take care of yourself.

Randolph McDonald, Sr. Master Sergeant E-8

“Thank you so much for your help Erica through this process. You  have made this a wonderful experience for me.”

From start to finish this was by far one of the easiest things I have done. This process was quicker, easier, more comfortable and convenient than my first go round. If I ever have anything else that needs to be done I will definitely be talking to you all again. I really appreciate all of the help, convenience and advice given to me. You & your team are amazing. I hope that more Veterans seek your help in their future endeavors.

God bless you all.

“Working with VA Lending Group was amazing.  We had our packet 24 hours after our first call! “

All communication with the group was easy and informative. The notary, Roxanna, was delightful!  She was clear and concise with the needed information and was very helpful every step of the way.The whole process, inquiry to closing, only took 3 weeks.

We are very happy with the whole process.  We recommend VA Lending Group without reservation to any Vet looking to refinance.

Mike & Chris Lapointe

“I have been extremely pleased with VA Lending group from the very first phone call with Patrick Crawford. Amanda Truesdell was my special loan processor and she was amazing.”

I really felt like Amanda and Patrick took a personal interest in me. The most important factors for me were the appreciation for my military service and communication.  

Both Patrick and Amanda gave me their cell phone numbers as well as their work numbers. They stressed that I could call them at any time. I had a bad previous experience where I could never get in touch with my contact person and she rarely communicated with me, so it was a welcome relief to find someone that communicated with me as well as Amanda. The entire process was seamless, requiring very little work on my part. I will recommend this group to anyone wanting to refinance a loan.

“Patrick and his team stand for veterans.”

Working with Patrick was an unbelievably easy process.  It began with a simple phone call and within minutes into the conversation we were on our way to refinancing our home loan. Patrick’s team worked fast and accurately to accomplish this in a timely manner.

Richard Godinez, Specialist 4

“Mr. Crawford was always available for questions and very punctual on getting back to me and was a pleasure doing business with.”

My name is Dustin Smith and for those that no nothing about me, I am a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corp, although I am no longer active Duty. After buying our home and getting a great VA rate I thought I was in the best situation I could be in, but then in February 2016 I received a letter from VA Lending Group about lowering my interest rate. It was already very low, but I called Mr. Crawford and he told me to let him look into a few things. Within the hour he called me back and said he could get a much better rate & change my note from thirty to twenty five years. I informed Patrick that I wanted to do it and he got to work. I can honestly say I thought this process would be a real pain but Mr. Crawford and his team were true professionals and the loan transfer went as smooth as I think possible.. Thank you to Mr. Crawford and his team.

Dustin Smith, Former Sergeant in U.S. Marine Corp.

“If you are looking for someone to assist you in getting the most out of your VA loan, you would not go wrong with Patrick and his team.”

They go extra steps to give you information to make educated decisions every step of the way.
I have been very fortunate to have had Patrick Crawford and his team assist me refinance my VA loan twice since 2012
. Each time they were the absolute professionals making the entire process as painless as possible.

“I am writing to thank you and the team for a great experience with our recent refinance.”

The paperwork was easy, the assistance was detailed and the time requirements were minimal. Best of all the rate reduced our mortgage payment and mortgage term. Keep up the good work!

Jason Mills

“The dates and timelines discussed from the first call to the execution of the paperwork was all very streamlined and seemingly effortless.”

My husband and I were both very pleased with the efficiency exhibited by you and your staff as well as the timeliness of the process. We appreciated the prompt and friendly customer service including the effort to answer all questions promptly. As you may recall, we previously refinanced a prior home with your firm; both times were great experiences and I highly recommend anyone wishing to refinance their home to contact VA Lending Group. Thank you again for continued efforts and desire to work with our country’s veterans.
