This credit union has absolutely great employees who are very dedicated to making you happy. I applied for a home loan here and the process was very smooth and involved me interfacing with a few people from different departments. They all had the same friendly way of going about things and were extremely precise in what they needed from you and did so with a smile. I enjoyed my experience so much that I even opened up a checking and savings accounts. This credit union is awesome!
