Get to know Lorraine Santirosa
Lorraine Santirosa also known as the "VA Queen" is proud to serve military families and veterans with their real estate needs in San Diego.
What I do:
As a former Navy spouse, I know first hand the challenges military families face with constant deployments and relocation. My experience as a VA homebuying expert, makes me the most qualified Realtor in San Diego serving the military and veteran community. I specialize in helping active duty military families purchase homes using their VA home loan benefit with zero money down. Helping military home owners who need to sell due to PCS orders or to purchase a bigger home is also part of what I do.
I am featured in the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Military Relocation Professional certification (MRP) for my expertise in the real estate community.
I am extremely passionate about helping veterans and military families realize the American dream of homeownership. In 2012, I worked with Congressman Filner, the former Chairman of the US House Veterans Committee to reduce the VA appraisal time frame to help make the VA home buying process more efficient for veterans in the Phoenix region, which includes San Diego.
I am a tireless advocate for veteran housing issues. By being a member of various groups such as Veteran Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP), National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) and Black American Political Action Association (BAPAC), I educate veterans and other real estate professionals about the VA home loan benefit. "When there are 22 million veterans nationwide and only 1.9 million active VA home loans, we as real estate professionals serving the military community have a lot of work to do."
I regularly conduct First Time Military Homebuyer workshops and advise community organizations and elected officials about veteran home ownership.
