"I live in the Tri-State area of Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois. My wife and I just used our VA loan to purchase our home last week. If you're in this area, contact Theresa Engelke. She's a great realtor, very helpful, informative, knows this area very well, and is apart of a program helping, active, vets, and emergency personal to get homes called Homes For Heroes.

I retained Theresa last summer (2015), as my buyers agent. I knew what I was looking for, but I didn't want to be "driven" to my goal, as happens with so many BIG NAME outfits. I simply wanted someone to represent me in negotiation and protect my interests in the complicated paperwork process. Once I found the perfect house, being sold by a FSBO seller and determining MY FAIR price offer, Theresa handled the rest. Theresa agreed to act as a dual agent, representing the seller as well as me. Think about that for a moment.... after failed sales attempts with Real Estate agents, the seller decided to sell as FSBO. I don't know how Theresa persuaded the seller to use her as a sellers agent too, but i'm sure it is a testament to her being a licensed negotiator too! I was astonished at how smoothly the process went for both, me and the seller. In the end, the FSBO seller was as happy as me. The cherry on top was an unexpected check to BOTH the seller and me, a benefit provided by the "Homes for Hero's" program, which Theresa participates in. In the end, the seller and I were both happy and very satisfied with the amicable process and conclusion of the deal! Lonergan's
