Our Story

In 2008, Ryan Kelley, President and Founder of Hero Loan decided to leave his post as a top producing loan officer for Shelter Mortgage and build his dream, TheHomeLoanExpert.com. With zero capital to open an office & only his vision, Ryan began working out of his basement and started knocking on doors- selling himself and his vision for the future of the home loan business. As referrals poured in and word spread, the demand for mortgages from The Home Loan Expert became overwhelming. As a result of The Home Loan Expert’s success, Ryan ascended as the Nation’s Top Loan Originator list several years receiving multiple awards.

With The Home Loan Expert growing rapidly, Ryan understood the need to bring the same passion and level of service to active duty military, veterans, and their families. Hence the creation of Hero Loan. Our mission is to provide fast, personalized service while supporting Veteran-Owned businesses and events. 

“We launched Hero loan after quickly realizing the options available for our service members were not what they deserve. We looked at what other lenders in the industry were providing and knew we could do a lot better.” – Ryan Kelley

Built into our mission is committed support for Veteran-owned businesses and events. From the Bataan Memorial Death March to providing free meals to Veterans at Veteran-owned restaurants, we understand the importance of the mission.

We’re growing

We work hard and are dedicated to the goal of being the best in class VA Loan provider. We hire the best loan experts, partner with the top realtors, and make sure that Hero Loan’s culture is that of a hard-working, family oriented atmosphere. And we have a little fun too!
