Saluting The Military With VA Loans

TONY DIAS founder and division president of Aligned Mortgage

Since 2016, my team and I have helped more veterans and military members become homeowners than any other lender in the state.As one of Hawai‘i’s leading VA lenders, we have built a legacy of providing an excellent homebuying experience.

In the last three years, we have helped more than 4,000 veterans find homes in Hawai‘i. This is our passion and mission. In addition, we go beyond the homebuying process to positively affect our clients and the community through our employee-funded foundation.

Tony Dias educates a room full of veterans about their VA Home Loan benefits. He has worked with more than 300,000 veterans nationwide.

Our invaluable VA loan education has significantly contributed to the ability of our clients becoming successful homeowners. The educational program, like no other provided locally, is carried out with free monthly seminars offered to prospective homebuyers, their families and even local real estate agents.

In addition, we now have added Home Financing Options Seminars conducted by our branch manager, Rachel Willis. Sessions cover USDA, FHA and conventional loans. These seminars are now offered online via Zoom and also live at our education center. Visit to check out upcoming events and to register.

At a VA home loan seminar, attendees learn about VA loan basics, including eligibility information, credit building and so much more. Attendees also have the chance to ask experienced loan specialists — many of whom are veterans themselves — questions in a safe learning environment. These loan experts are uniquely aware of the stresses that military homebuyers endure when becoming homeowners because of their own experiences while serving. The team here at Aligned Mortgage strives to relieve those stresses through one-on-one consultations at our office. We strive to get our customers to the closing table faster with our in-house processing teams and time-zone-specific underwriters. These teams work closely with loan officers and communicate constantly so our clients go from application to closing in the most efficient way.

Aligned Mortgage’s production numbers back up the fact that we are passionate about serving military homebuyers: 94% of our loan production is the VA home loan. Aligned’s history of serving Hawai‘i’s military homebuyer community while providing excellent VA loan education and giving back to the community is what sets us apart from other mortgage lenders.
