"Education First FCU has changed my life. I have been a member with EFFCU for over eight years now and I cannot say enough how appreciative I am of Trudy and her team. Having my business loans at EFFCU has allowed me to grow my business substantially. In the beginning when I was starting out purchasing investment properties, I did not have the kind of cash flow that would allow me to purchase multiple properties at one time. In 2008 there were a lot of homes that were foreclosed on by big banks. I remember thinking to myself, “If I could just secure financing I could do well with investment properties.” Working with Trudy to secure financing at 80% LTV allowed me build adequate equity in my business, thus allowing me to purchase more and more investments. Trudy and her team have changed my life, my family’s life, and the lives of my employees. I have been able to build a crew and to keep them. I have recommended Trudy and EFFCU to countless friends and family, including my parents and my brother."

"I was first referred to Education First FCU from a friend, who also happens to be in the real estate investment industry and I have been a member now for almost six years. When I started my business, I initially got financing through a bank. I only did that one time. After speaking with Trudy and her team, it was a no brainer to move my business to EFFCU. And I have never looked back. The service and the ease of doing business with EFFCU are unmatched by any other bank or credit union in town. The staff is local, accessible, and thorough, which is very important to me. Throughout the loan process, they are there the entire time. And if I have questions, they get me the answers. Not only would I recommend other businesses to EFFCU for their commercial lending needs, I have."
