As a fellow veteran, I want to thank you for your service. Most lending institutions will deal with VA loans. I personally have not had good luck with the USAA mortgage service of late and I'm sure you've heard some of the horror stories of some of the big lenders such as Bank of America. I prefer to deal with the local credit unions (Kirtland, Sandia, Navy, etc) or with some of the local lenders such as American Financing, Indigo, etc. I just did a refinance of my own home and had good luck with Kirtland FCU. I recommend shopping around, as costs and interest rates will vary. If you're wanting to start looking at listings, please give me a call, I'd love to help out a fellow vet. (505-280-6231).
