Mark and Traci came to me already approved for a VA Mortgage. I've known Traci since 8th grade (83) so when I asked their lender to send me the good faith estimate, I was shocked. This lender, Veterans United, sole purpose is to save VETERANS Money. Instead, she was charging Mark just under $13,000 to bring to the closing table ($12,857 to be exact). He's a Military Veteran, using his VA which is 100% Financing, She had worked with him 2x already.So when I called her out on these fees, she asked me to send my hometown lender partners fees so she could "beat or meet". My response, "you should have put your best foot forward at the start instead of charging him crazy costs to paid your wallet". Needless to say, they went with my local lender, saved a ton of money (used those funds to redo...

VA Financing for Veterans - Buying a home with Zero DownSince the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019, more Veterans can benefit from zero-down VA loans — even in expensive housing markets. The act takes VA loan limits out of the equation for many borrowers. Loan limits are defined as the maximum VA loan possible without a down payment. But now, loan limits are only applied to those with partial entitlement. If you have full entitlement, the maximum VA guaranty is simply 25 percent of your loan amount — even if your loan is $1,000,000 or more.All first-time VA borrowers have full entitlement. Additionally, all borrowers who’ve used a VA loan to finance a home, and have since completely restored entitlement, also have full entitlement. You may also have full entitlement if you p...

18 Years of sobriety yet, you can still be triggered out of nowhere.For those that know me, I have always been very vocal about my alcoholism and my journey to continue staying sober. In February 2023, I reach my 18th year milestone. As I continue to celebrate my monthly wins (the 9th day of each month) I always try to share some insight with those who follow me.In the past couple weeks, I was triggered by a simple smell of Jack. In my heavy drinking days, Budweiser and Jack Daniels were my "go to". Day in, and day out, I would sip, gulp and pour both down my throat. Always searching for the "high" the feeling of being "comfortably numb" where you're not "drunk" but you're no longer sober. Relaxed enough to forget the trials of the day, but coherent (at least thats what I'd tell myself)...

Cooper Commons - A southeast Valley community in Chandler, AZCooper Commons was built in the early 2000's. A master planned community with many different home builders, gave home buyers many choices as they were being constructed. These builders included Engle Homes, US Homes and KB Homes just to name a few.  Home styles vary and single and two story homes are available. A portion of Cooper Commons is located within a part of the community that offers a Community Pool (this section has a higher monthly HOA Fee). Because the homes for sale in Cooper Commons are "older" the lot sizes on most homes, are larger than what we see in today's new construction. There are also many tot lots, sport courts and walking/biking/running paths in the community. The community itself is located off the fo...
