Best Local Financial Institution

Posted by: coarseym | Feb 18, 2012

I have been a member of Community First Credit Union for over forty years. During that time it has met my financial needs and has proven to be a trustworthy institution. It has evolved to meet my needs, including mobile banking. I appreciate the role it plays in the local northeast Florida area, particularly the support of local schools. The name is not Community First Federal Credit Union, but Community First Credit Union of Florida. I highly recommend it to anyone who lives or works in northeast Florida.

Great Service From A Credit Union The Will Work With You

Posted by: albertE | May 9, 2016

I love Community First. They have had excellent customer service over the past 8 years that I have been a member. One time I remember in particular was when my apartment building mistakenly withdrew my rent twice, causing my account to overdraft. Community First waived the overdraft fees, no questions asked. Any time I have a question about a process or a transaction, I can log onto their website and submit a question. I almost always hear back the same day and usually the information is very helpful. Finally, their mobile app is great. I can deposit checks, make transfers, check balances, view the nearest free ATM, you name it. And on top of all of this, I've never had to pay a fee! My checking account is completely free (even earns a tiny amount of interest).

Loan Information

Posted by: Anonymous | Jan 9, 2012

I found it impossible to get any information regarding mortgage loans unless I became a member. I need to know rates before I would agree to join. Other credit unions were forthcming with the info. I'm going elsewhere.
