The home-buying journey can be uncertain, full of twists and turns you don't see coming. Even if you're using a Veterans Affairs loan—and taking advantage of the unique benefits that come along with it—you could still run into some big roadblocks along the way.

That's why you need a savvy real estate agent to guide you. And while any agent technically can help with a VA purchase, an agent who’s particularly experienced with military buyers can help you better navigate the process. From pre-approval to closing, a military-friendly real estate agent will know what's on the path ahead, and remove any obstacles in your way so you can get the house of your dreams.

1. I understand the unique needs of veterans and service members

2. I am prepared for an accelerated buying or selling timeline

3. I can steer you toward a knowledgeable lender

4. I understand the VA appraisal process

5. I will ensure a condo or townhome is approved
