About Veterans Homebuyers Network
We are not money lenders or real estate agents—Veterans Homebuyers Network is an independent organization with the sole purpose of serving our nation’s unsung heroes and helping them progress in life with financial awareness and the resources to purchase a house.
In 1990, Leonard Nedlin, a retired US Army Captain, and two other veterans formed American Eagle Mortgage Lenders in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, to help the veterans and military personnel of New York achieve the American Dream of homeownership. It was a simple goal, but the process was complex because many realtors and home sellers were unfamiliar with the VA Home Loan Program and would avoid working with veterans. It was a time when the internet was just in the beginning stages—even a cell phone was a luxury. Despite all these challenges, American Eagle was determined to fulfill their mission of serving the NYC Veteran community.
When Leonard Nedlin’s son, David Nedlin, joined American Eagle in 1995, he realized that to best serve the veteran home buyer they needed more than just a Mortgage Bank—they needed a network of services collaborating and working together. That’s why, in 2000, Leonard, along with his son David, formed the Veterans Homebuyers Network. Since then, they have been working tirelessly to preserve the Nedlin family legacy and fulfill their promise of making the American Dream a reality for veterans.
To educate you about the VA Home Loan Program, then connect you to our network of qualified VA-approved mortgage lenders, real estate agents knowledgeable of VA Home Loans, attorneys, accountants, and credit restoration specialists.
We will educate you about the VA Home Loan Program and the home buying process in either a one-on-one or group setting. From education to credit restoration to getting approved for a VA Loan and finding the right Real Estate Agent, we will oversee the entire home buying process.
The Veterans Homebuyers Network has worked with most military facilities and veteran organizations in the New York and South Florida areas since 1995.
We were faced with a unique challenge in 2020, as we could not host live workshops, attend Yellow Ribbon events, or hold drill weekends. We had to pivot.
As a result of that challenge, we had to find a way to connect with you remotely. As the saying goes, ‘ingenuity is the mother of invention.’ So, while we did not invent the internet, Facebook or Zoom, we did find a way to share the information Veterans like you need to secure home loan financing. We created a Facebook group called VA Home Loans for Veterans in early 2020, which has grown to over 8,000 members and counting.
We believe that 2021 will see us all getting back to the old normal. As a direct result of the overwhelming interest and support for this online community, we have now expanded our reach to serve Veterans throughout the United States. This is important because now we can share our message with Veterans and military personnel across the country.
The tools and resources you need to realize the American Dream of Home Ownership are now as close by as your mobile phone, laptop, or computer.
Our vision is becoming a reality.
We see 2022 and beyond as an expansion of our ‘little’ Facebook community. The ultimate goal is to provide educational workshops to the men and women of our great military who have served or are still serving because no one deserves a place to call home more than you.
