Dear Friends at Flagship,
I just now received and noticed this testimonials type of email to reply to and of course. My loan officer there, Mr. Ryan Johnson, went "above and beyond the call of duty" on my behalf during the coarse of my loan application and funding. Mid way through the paperwork, we realized that the bug inspection had not been completed by the local Terminex inspectors here. The report was done but never faxed to you folk as of all things, the gal was on vacation. Then, just before final approval and funding, my personal Agent/Broker's daughter passed away suddenly and out of respect for her and her family, we elected to wait for the closing, which finally was on 22 September 2008. I am a Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and a Navy Commendation Medal awardee from my service in Vietnam 1968-1969. I returned home, never got a "thanks" and never a parade. After over 35 years, you folks and Ryan Johnson were my "Parade" and my "thanks". I salute your continued efforts in the arena of helping US Veterans obtain a home and a VA Home Mortgage through your fine organization.
Blessings and thank you,
Mebane, North Carolina

Mr. Fugal I am very sorry that this letter is late. The Ballards just wanted to say THANK YOU to you and your staff for all the hard work. One thing is for sure Mr. Fugal, we will tell people about you! You made everything seem so easy even if you were busy or had a problem. This let me and my husband know that we had the right company and the right person. Mr. Fugal, you are a perfect 10 in my book.

My name is William Cubbage. I have recently been working with Shawn at Flagship on refinancing my VA loan. I feel I am making a very minimal gesture in emailing a big thank you to Shawn. I called Flagship in a last effort to save my home and spoke to Mr. Shawn. This young man has an attitufe and overall demeanor this is a rare find in this day and age. Shawn was very up beat with all our phone conversations and I was left to feel as if my situation with my home was in very good hands. The quality of character that I have experienced with Shawn is not only commendable but one that sets the bar for others to emulate. In closing I will say that Shawn has been an absolute pleasure to work with if not a blessing. I personally think he has been both.
Ryan, Please accept this small gift as a token of our appreciation for making our refi into a reality. You were so kind and patient and thorough. You are a great asset to your company; you really calmed our fears, especially since you're in another state. Please show this to your BOSS! Hope the best for you are yours-share the candy with your little girl. Love the Ritchies.

Mortgage Industry Faces Huge Bottleneck - Patience Needed
Online VA loan community yourvapro.com says bank failures have caused a huge bottleneck for customers trying to get a home mortgage loan or refinance.
The problem started last year when the mortgage industry cut 75-80% of its staffing. Then the economy soured and the federal government cut interest rates to historical lows. Suddenly demand spiked and mortgage lenders didn't have the staff to respond which has crippled the market said Eric Kandell, Manager Flagship Financial Government Loan Division. Flagship Financial is an approved lender for yourvapro.com.
Now mortgage lenders can not hire fast enough. Then the banks got into trouble and the credit crunch hit. Most of the smaller middle man banks closed. The result is that just a few large institutional banks are left to handle most of the loan processing and mortgage companies are short staffed.
Customers are waiting longer to get loans approved and funded. Wells Fargo, Countrywide, and Citi have all seen large increaseds in the number of mortgage loans and refinances because of record low mortgage rates. They can't meet the demand and that means customers are waiting longer. They can't get anyone on the phone, said Kandell.
Flagship Financial has the experience to help. yourvapro.com works with Flagship Financial, a mortgage lender who understands these issues. Flagship's loan officers have been working 14 hour days. They are doing all they can to facilitate an easy process for clients in light of this major log jam the industry is suffering, said Kandell.
Two weeks ago Chase, one of the few banks still offering loans, left the wholesale and third party loan origination business. That crippled the market, making things even worse. Now only the bigger banks are left to service this huge industry. Borrowers and homeowners need to be patient and work with mortgage companies that understand these frustrations. Flagship Financial can lock loans for longer - for both 45 to 60 days.
How has this affected consumers? They are seeing huge delays or problems even getting loans. While many homeowners need the reduction in their monthly payments, getting a loan can be a frustratingly long process. Underwriting turn times went from 48 hours up to 4 weeks at some banks. Some are even denying loans right at closing.
Flagship Financial and yourvapro.com have advice for people who are looking for loans - along with a $250 guarantee. Borrowers need to be patient and trust that we will get them closed as fast as we can. We still stand behind our $250 guarantee to offer the highest level of service, whether for veteran loans (www.yourvapro.com) or other loans, says Kandell.
Consolation comes knowing that although there are still issues, working with Flagship Financial has advantages. Nate Burt, Loan Officer, many of our large lending partners, like Wells Fargo, have coined 'stop brokers' or given us special tier services so that our clients don't have to wait at the end of such a long line. Our dedication to loan management and service has allowed us to come out on top of this big mess.
Rates have risen slightly recently, which means more customers will try to lock in against further increases. Given the banking climate, and uncertain future, lowering monthly mortgage payments can help alleviate financial stress for years to come.
