Originally founded in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 2006, VIP Mortgage made a huge splash in the Big Island market during the summer of 2018. A merge between a local brokerage shop, Pacific Isle Lending Group, and V.I.P created the perfect alliance; a company with home-grown island knowledge fueled by resources to serve a larger segment of the community. Senior Vice President Ho’olaea Andrade’s vision for VIP was to develop not the biggest company, but the best. By 2019, VIP had expanded to four locations across the Big Island, led by some of the most knowledgeable local professionals in the industry.

Together, the staff at VIP Mortgage combine over 100 years of experience, an abundance of professionalism, and a driving passion to help those in their community finance their way home. The first VIP office location was planted in the heart of Waimea, on Opelo Road. Shortly after VIP’s success in Waimea, Producing Branch Manager Patti Kanuha housed her Team’s branch in Waikoloa Village. Due to Patti’s vast expertise on subdivisions and condominiums in Waikoloa and the North Kona regions, along with years of experience of lending on the Big Island, Patti was able to make a big impact for VIP Mortgage in a short period of time.

Following Patti’s success, VIP once again partnered with a broker shop located in Kailua-Kona, Trusted Home Loans. Jamaica Canas, the former owner of Trusted Home Loans, was inspired to jump on board the VIP wave, and turned her former brokerage into VIP’s Kona Branch. With offices accessible to the majority of the Big Island, it took little time to finalize an office location in Hilo, Hawaii. Today, VIP Mortgage has thirteen loan officers across four locations, each offering a niche that truly makes this company a team environment.

VIP Mortgage separates itself from other mortgage companies for many reasons. From extremely competitive pricing, an array of unique programs helpful for Hawaii residents, and a culture focused on community and heart, VIP is a stand-out opportunity for future home buyers.

VIP Mortgage is a mid-sized mortgage company funding in excess of $2.5 billion annually, with 25 brick and mortar branches spread throughout HI, WA, CA, AZ, CO, TX, IN, and WI and licenses to operates in 22 states. VIP continues to thrive and grow organically by creating a company with complete transparency and trust, truly listening to the people they serve, and concentrating on building relationships for life!
