About Rick Elmendorf
Rick Elmendorf, a nationally renowned VA loan expert, has a deeply rooted connection to the military community.

At the age of 22, Rick embarked on his journey in the mortgage business. He started his career in a humble garage, working for a small brokerage company in Cantonsville, MD. In those early days, the absence of advanced technology compelled him to gain an in-depth understanding of mortgage banking, delving into every aspect of the industry. Early on, Rick had a fanatical drive to become one of the best loan officers in the nation with a specific focus on VA Home Loans. Rick's family history and his own experiences have instilled a strong commitment to serving the military community. His father, after completing his military service, became a highly successful financial planner with USPA & IRA, currently First Command Financial Planning. His particular focus was always on helping military families achieve financial stability and success. Rick soon joined his father in this mission, engaging with clients and agents on the financing side and it wasn't long before he developed a deep affection for his military clientele. Incorporating the core values of the military into his own business, Rick adopted the principles of honor, service, duty, excellence, and teamwork. These values have been the foundation of his approach to serving his clients. To this day, Rick and his team provide a top-tier mortgage experience that not only honors the military but also delivers on the promises made to those who have served.
