If you find the right lender who's had experience in VA loans, it will definitely help. It's not that lenders who take a long time with VA loans are bad, it's just a complicated loan that doesn't occur quite often for loan officers. So it is better to find a lender who has had a lot of experience with VA loans because they will know what they are doing and will be able to make the process smoother. This is just something to consider.
I hope this helps and good luck!
