My review of Legacy Texas

I have been with Legacy Texas for the past 5 years. I have been with them when it was the local community credit union. They have since change and became the bank that they are now today. This bank is not like the big brands, they have all the same amminities but with the small town helpfulness. You can walk into any branch and the team will greet you with a handshake and a warm cup of coffee. At my local branch they have been extremely helpful with any thing that I need from statements to helping me locate a past deposits. The big banks are not the only choices you can trust this small town bank as well.

Happy and content

I have been a customer of Legacy Bank for almost 25 years (although there have been several mergers and combination of names), I have maintained through them a checking account, a savings account, and a line of credit account. During the past 25 years I have never had to pay a single fee (except for interest on the line of credit). There has never been an error on a single statement, every time I walk in the door I am greeted with a smile, and their website is intuitive and secure. These guys are great and I can't recommend them enough.

Local hometown banks

I have been banking with Texas Legacy bank since it was Community Credit Union and it has only gone up in its standards from then. It has been my primary banking institution for as long as I can remember. They have been good to me and my family. This bank has taught me how to bank. What I mean is how to properly run my account and how to use my account as an adult. I had a personal banker sit down with me and show me how to balance my check books as well as how to properly use my debt card. I also got my first car loan with them and the process was very easy and they showed me how to use my credit.

Terrible Loan Experience -

I was referred to Legacy by a company that did business with them. We went to them for a home improvement loan and the experience was a mess. We understand every bank has their own lending criteria and since they have to answer to their investors they can set their standards however they choose. JUST BE HONEST. Before we submitted our loan request we went over in detail what was and was not on our credit. We gave them the score and they said we don't see any problems and lets get the loan done. WRONG. They say they use experian but somehow THEIR score and experian were different. I guess they use a internal model for the final decision. They declined us for escalating debt which is not true we paid off 25K in credit card debt in past 3 months and sold a rental property 45 days ago. Other reason was derogatory credit history. WRONG. My wife has a 60 medical bill that is being contested and I have an IRS lien that has been with me for 10 years and I have a 100% on time payment history over those 10 years. All of which was disclosed before we submitted. Our credit report has no other late payments on the the report....... ZERO. Oh yeah speaking about the credit report by wife and I are both over 700 on our scores, which we verified with experian, but they said they were below.

Not sure what they are doing but when you explain everything to them, they lie to you and then again lie to you about why they turned us down so I am not sure what to think. The story ends well as we submitted to another bank and was approved in 24 hours and even got a 1/4 point better interest rate. BEWARE as this place says one thing and does whatever they want.
