After graduating from college, Rick Elmendorf started in the housing industry as a real estate appraiser before becoming a mortgage broker. A resident of the metro DC area, Elmendorf is now branch manager at Caliber Home Loans’ Fairfax, Virginia, branch.

Having grown up in a military household, Elmendorf has always had an admiration for the men and women who serve in the armed forces, which has inspired him to help thousands of military  personnel – both active-duty and veterans – obtain VA financing.

His expertise in various loan products has allowed Elmendorf to coach his real estate partners to take their business to the next level; last year alone, Elmendorf’s business volume increased 30%. With more than 25 years of high-producing experience, Elmendorf has been a member of Caliber’s Chairman’s Club since joining the company. He is also a sought-after speaker for many industry events.
