CU/America Financial Services, a mortgage CUSO owned by eight Illinois credit unions, has signed with Scottsdale, Ariz.-based CU Realty Services to offer the company’s real estate program to credit unions throughout Illinois.
CU/America said it plans to actively promote CU Realty Services and its benefits to the 25-plus credit unions it currently serves, as well as others across the state. Before going live, CU/America will host a July 10 seminar for interested credit unions in the area, targeting CEOs, mortgage loan managers and marketing officers.
CU Realty said its program assists credit union members with all aspects of the home buying and selling process. It allows them to search through MLS listings, research neighborhoods, find capable Realtors, and save money at closing.
Members can save average of $1,500 in the form of cash or discounts through an arrangement with the company’s network of pre-qualified Realtors, CU Realty said.
