VA Loan Captain is a financial technology (FinTech) company focused on educating veterans on their VA Home Loan benefit and powers the #1 VA Loan Marketplace for veterans to shop for the best rates and fees
NEW YORK, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — EXIT Realty Corp. International and VA Loan Captain (www.valoancaptain.com), the #1 VA Loan Marketplace, have announced a partnership to help educate veterans on their VA Home Loan benefit. As part of the partnership, EXIT Realty will offer veterans unbiased educational content in the form of an eBook, The Ultimate Guide to VA Loans, a VA Loan Learning Center on www.exitrealty.com, and a VA Loan Marketplace powered by VA Loan Captain to increase awareness of the 0% down home loan benefit available to all those who have served in the United States Military.
“We at EXIT Realty are grateful for the sacrifices made by our military personnel and their families and are proud to be able to offer the opportunity for them to find out more about the VA Loan benefit,” said Tami Bonnell, CEO, EXIT Realty Corp. International.
“We are proud to partner with EXIT Realty and are excited to share in their commitment to empower their agents to serve the unique real estate needs of the military and veteran community,” said Grant Moon, Founder and CEO of VA Loan Captain.
In addition to educating veteran home buyers, beginning on July 4th, 2017, EXIT Realty will also offer VA Loan Captain’s VA Loan Certification (VALC) to all of its agents. The VALC Certification provides real estate agents and lenders comprehensive knowledge of the VA Home Loan benefit to establish themselves as a local expert for the largely untapped military real estate market while simultaneously helping those who served the country.
The VALC Certification is the most comprehensive educational course for real estate professionals to learn about the home loan programs offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (the VA), also known as the VA loan. The VA loan benefit, and the members of the military and veteran community who use it, are unique. It is important for real estate professionals to have a good knowledge of both to help ensure their clients receive the maximum benefit possible, and that they do not miss out on this important way to grow their business.
“The VA Home Loan benefit can provide the best chance for many military service members and veterans to own a home. This certification will allow EXIT Realty agents to give our brave servicemen and women the knowledge, information, and support they deserve to help them participate in the American Dream,” said Moon.
Tyler Thompson, a member of the National Association of REALTORS’® REach® Team, said, “We are excited to continue to see our portfolio companies such as VA Loan Captain provide innovative solutions that empower real estate professionals to best serve our military and veteran community.”
“Through our partnership with VA Loan Captain, we can empower our associates to knowledgeably serve those who served,” said Bonnell.

Founded in 2011, VA Loan Captain was created out of the experiences of its founder and CEO, Grant Moon. Grant served in the US Army from 1998, and is a proud veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and other operations in support of the Global War on Terror. Upon returning from Iraq in 2008, Grant was looking to buy a home, and heard about the VA Home Loan benefit. At the time, there was no VA Loan Captain to compare rates and fees across multiple VA lenders or work with a real estate agent familiar with the VA loan. As a result, Grant went through a painful process which cost him more than he hoped. Looking back, Grant wanted to help his fellow veterans by providing them with a simple and unbiased way to educate themselves on the VA Home Loan. Find us anytime at www.valoancaptain.com.
