loanDepot Introduces New ‘VA Loan Officer Master Class’ for Originators Seeking to Better Serve the Military Community and Grow Their Business

04/29/2024

New program adds to loanDepot’s world-class suite of training resources, upskilling programs, and coaching and mentoring support

loanDepot, Inc. ("LDI" or "Company") (NYSE: LDI), a leading provider of home lending solutions that enables customers to achieve the dream of homeownership, has added a new, purpose-built ‘VA Loan Officers Master Class’ to its robust suite of training and originator support resources. This newest program joins another highly specialized course call the ‘Keys to Homeownership.’ Both were designed to give originators the knowledge and skills they need to address the unique challenges faced by first-time and underserved homebuyers who are grappling with the persistent affordability hurdles of today's high-price, low-inventory housing market.

"The VA mortgage loan stands as one of the most powerful tools available to our nation’s veterans and active-duty military personnel for achieving homeownership and fostering long-term financial stability. Unfortunately, it has long been underutilized due to persistent misconceptions and a lack of awareness within the industry,” said loanDepot’s recently appointed Vice President of National VA Lending David Smith. “Our new Master Class was developed to ensure this outstanding product is accessible to more borrowers, giving our loan consultants the knowledge they need to effectively serve the men and women who have earned this benefit by defending our country.”

loanDepot’s training and coaching support for originators also includes:

  • Learning from the industry’s top subject matter experts in renovation lending, new construction lending, reverse financing, first-time homebuyer lending, and VA lending;
  • Access to the Modern Lending Playbook and business plan, a step-by-step guide to serving today’s digital customer;
  • And coaching from some of the industry’s most respected guest trainers.

"The new ‘VA Loan Officer Master Class’ is another great example of our ongoing investment in training and support resources to address the evolving needs of today’s homebuyers while equipping our originators with the tools they need to thrive,” said Executive Vice President John Bianchi. “Not only do our originators have the expertise to deliver the best possible service and solutions to our customers, they also have all the support they need to grow their businesses and take their careers to the next level.”
