Jimmy Vercellino was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. At the age of 18 he made the decision to defend his country and left home. Jimmy is a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps, as well as Operation Iraqi Freedom. By the grace of God, after completing his tour of duty in war torn Fallujah, Iraq, he moved to Phoenix, AZ with goals and aspirations of beginning a new career in the mortgage industry.
Jimmy quickly realized that there was a huge deficiency and need for Veterans, living in the valley, to have a VA Home Loan Specialists they could trust and relate to; someone who spoke their language and understood their needs. Without hesitation, he decided to devote himself to the Veteran homebuyer, fulfilling a passion of his, while at the same time helping Veterans achieve home ownership. He is now one of the Nation’s top VA Home Loan mortgage originators. www.VALoansForVets.com
