Learn more about Shawn
After living across the globe while on active duty, Shawn realized that Hawaii felt the most like home. In 2010, Shawn bought his first home in Hawaii knowing almost nothing about the VA loan process. Although it wound up being one of the smartest decisions he ever made, it was also the scariest.
His experience revealed something veteran homebuyers need: a safe and reliable information source for making fact-based decisions. Shawn soon entered the mortgage industry. By 2012, he transitioned from the army and was working full time helping veterans. Today, he considers it his job to use his experience to help all veterans make solid financial decisions about Hawaiian homeownership.
Shawn and his team at Castle & Cooke Mortgage show a passion for spreading aloha throughout their community and a relentless focus on helping veterans achieve homeownership. His team was foundational to making Veterans United Home Loans the preeminent VA lender in Hawaii. Shawn now works to build that same foundation with his team at Castle & Cooke Mortgage.
