David Bordeaux

In 2012 David became an agent with Financial Education Services (FES), a growing financial services company with a focus on credit restoration and consumer education. David found early success by striving to assist his clients to eliminate the burden of financial uncertainty while creating a plan of action and giving them peace of mind in the process.

In 2016, David was appointed the Vice-President of the Honolulu Chapter of VAREP, (Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals). VAREP was a growing national non-profit organization dedicated to increasing sustainable homeownership and financial literacy for the active military and veteran communities. David became MVHC (Military & Veterans Housing Certified), with VAREP in 2017.

Upon the completion of his 23 year US Army career, David wanted to continue to help and serve others and was fortunate to be able to purchase his first home at 25 years old. Home ownership was something he preached to all his fellow service members, and because of the great feeling, he experienced when he purchased his first home. He found his calling as a Realtor Associate, to help others experience the same feeling of accomplishment in purchasing their own home.

To utilize the VA home loan program, you’ll need to first establish eligibility, or prove that you have earned the benefit. To do so, you’ll need to obtain your Certificate of Eligibility, or COE. Aligned Mortgage can help you get your COE during the preapproval process. In the meantime, below is some detailed information on who generally qualifies for the program. 

If you served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps or Coast Guard, you are eligible if you meet the minimum service days detailed below.
