We love Simon Watson! We thought things would be all simple but Simon walked us through the buying process with gentleness and ease..laughing through the entire process. He knows exactly what price you should offer and how to make that offer. He will show you which properties to consider and steer you away from those that would be a waste of your time. He is very honest. If you can listen and hear great guidance he is willing to give it to you. He knows a lot of folks in the Area from realtors to mortgage brokers. You can´t go wrong with Simon. Again, we loved him.

Mr. Simon Watson should be Saint Simon for his patience in helping us find, negotiate and close on a house we bought in Oakland . It was a fixer in a short sale that involved two mortgage holders. Communications and negotiations had to include all the parties who had to agree on each step. There were multiple inspections as well and each required scheduling among the same large group. When the inspections found a significant issue, Simon helped us resolve it satisfactorily. Somehow Simon kept everything together while counseling us on strategy to keep our bid on top. The purchase ended happily and the fixer is getting fixed. We recommend Saint Simon Watson to be your real estate agent, too.

If you are looking for an awesome, knowledgeable, responsive, and attentive realtor look no further than Simon. My fiancé and I had the pleasure of working with Simon on our first home purchase and he made the whole experience comfortable, enjoyable, and most importantly less scary than we thought it would be. As soon as he got our contact information from our lender he gave me a call and we talked for about an hour about our new home wants and needs and he explained the whole process on what to expect. A day or two after that we were looking at homes. What amazed me the most was his attention to detail and his honest opinions on the properties we looked at. I definitely felt he had our best interest at heart on everything. Once it got time to place offers he's explained everything to a tee and answered my millions of questions. He even reviewed every document that we were to review and made sure to point out important things to make sure we understood and didn't miss anything. We w...

We specialize in working with Active Military Personal and Veterans using VA Loans. One of our recent sales was working with a veteran who was currently deployed overseas. Working with his wife, we were able to get into contract a week after returning from a year long deployment using facetime and lots of photos.

It’s critical for military borrowers to use an Realtor who’s worked with VA loans and understands the program’s requirements.

If your PCS orders have you moving away, you may need to sell your home as soon as possible. Home hunting is often done from a distance and selling negotiations may have you communicating with your Realtor® from remote locations. Realtors who can maneuver through the agency's procedures can save borrowers from big-time hassles and headaches on things like appraisals and property criteria.

Since the VA loan program's inception in 1944, the Department of Veterans Affairs has backed more than 21 million loans for veterans, active-duty military members, and their spouses. This program has made buying a home more accessible to those who most deserve the American dream they helped build and protect.

Most members of the regular military, veterans, reservists and National Guard are eligible to apply for a VA loan. Spouses of military members who died while on active duty or as a result of a service-connected disability also can apply.

You may also apply for eligibility if you fall into one of the following categories:

  • Certain U.S. citizens who served in the armed forces of a government allied with the United States in World War II
  • Individuals with service as members in certain organizations, such as Public Health Service officers, cadets at the United States Military, Air Force, or Coast Guard Academy, midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy, officers of National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, merchant seaman with World War II service, and others
  • The property purchased with the prior VA loan has been sold and the loan paid in full.
  • A qualified Veteran-transferee (buyer) agrees to assume the VA loan and substitute his or her entitlement for the same amount of entitlement originally used by the Veteran seller. The entitlement may also be restored one time only if the Veteran has repaid the prior VA loan in full, but has not disposed of the property purchased with the prior VA loan.
