Meet Lorraine Santirosa –  the CEO of a San Diego, CA based cutting edge real estate business that produces impressive results for todays’ savvy military homebuyers and sellers.

My Mission:

To empower Veterans to become homeowners using their VA home loan benefit!

I began my real estate career because I wanted to help military families successfully buy or sell their home with an agent that they could trust. I set myself apart by being the San Diego Military Relocation Expert that pasionately advocates on behalf of military families. I’m fondly known as the “VA Queen” because no one works harder than me!

My diverse background in the military community helps to establish a high level of trust. Instantly, my clients feel a connection to me because of my solid former military spouse experience.  I spent more than twenty years as a military spouse and raised two children. During those times, I lived at various duty stations including Japan while my ex spouse achieved a successful military career.

Other real estate agents may say they work with military families but none can match my level of success. I’m the go to person that other agents seek for advice on military transactions. I find it an honor to be of service to my fellow agents and veterans.

Lorraine is extremely passionate about helping veterans and military families realize the American dream of homeownership. In 2012, Lorraine worked with Congressman Filner and former Chairman of the US House Veterans Affairs 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.

Lorraine is 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) she educates veterans and other real estate professionals about the VA home loan benefit. “When there are 22 million veterans and only 1.9 million active VA home loans” says Lorraine, “We as real estate professionals serving the military community have a lot of work to do to”

Lorraine regularly conducts First Time Military Homebuyer workshops and advises community organizations and elected officials about veteran home ownership.

My average home buyer is someone that purchases their home for the first time. Takes advantage of using their VA benefit, and tries to stay within their Basic Housing Allowance. If you hire me to purchase your home, my job is to walk you through the entire VA home buying process from start to finish.

Real estate is my only job and one that I try to do well in order to earn your trust. I realize the importance of you moving to San Diego and the need for a well experienced REALTOR to help make your transition as smooth as possible.  I offer FREE initial consultations to explain how I work, the current real estate market, listen to your needs and to see if we are a match. Various financial institutions offer low discounts to lure you as a buyer, but I’m confident in saying that with my experience of the market and strong negotiation skills, I can save you MORE on a deal.

My typical home seller is someone that brought a house a few years ago and needs to sell due to orders out of area. I first try to see if they qualify for the US Govt. HAP benefit or possibly a short sale if there is no equity in the property. There are also clients that need to sell because they require a bigger place and want to take advantage of the low interest rates. If you hire me to sell your house, my job is to market your home to procure a buyer and successfully complete the sale.

In today’s real estate market, a listing agent should be on top of the latest marketing tools to sell your house and be able to discuss your mortgage relief options if you are upside down and struggling with holding on to your home. I offer FREE listing appointments to discuss how I work, the eight mortgage relief options, the current real estate market and the latest cutting edge tools to market your home.
