Giudice's Planet Home Lending team will include Benjamin Chairez and Roland Mancha as mortgage loan originators and Veronica Serrano as a loan officer assistant.
This is Planet Home Lending's sixth team in Texas. The team's VA loan knowledge helps service members stationed at any of the area's multiple military installations. The company also has loans for first-time homebuyers, move-up buyers, vacation homebuyers, and borrowers who fall outside the standard credit box, including self-employed business owners, retirees, foreign nationals, and people with credit challenges.
“Planet Home Lending provides San Antonians with a comprehensive suite of lending solutions,” said Giudice. “We ensure every step in the process is covered and every question answered.”
San Antonio has multiple military bases and is nicknamed the Military City. It is also home to the Department of Defense's largest medical center. The housing market has consistently been strong in San Antonio, which translates into an increased need for home financing options, according to the company.
Planet Home Lending also offers the My First Texas Home program, which gives people who have not owned a home in the past three years a zero-interest loan they can use to pay up to 5% of their down payment and closing costs.
In addition to the My First Texas Home program, Planet Home Lending offers six other down payment assistance programs in Texas that offer help with closing costs or down payments.
