Members’ Story: Faviola and Jorge R.

Newlyweds Faviola and Jorge wanted to buy their first home together, but were a little nervous about the process. They came to their Credit Union for help, enrolled in our Home Advantage Program, and were paired with a real estate agent who provided expert guidance every step of the way.

“We started looking for a house in September and we ended up closing at the end of November. The agent was able to help us review our finances and find a home that was within our budget. Plus, we got a $2,500 commission rebate, which made the experience so much greater.”

From finding the right home at a price they could afford, to an on-time closing, Faviola and Jorge were able to have a seamless buying experience as they start their new life together in their first home.

“The Credit Union took our hand, guided us and took the time to educate us. Everything was at our own pace and the process was so simple. We would recommend it to anyone who is buying a home for the first time.”
