When it’s time to purchase a home, many people seek out real estate agents who can help them to find the home of their dreams. However, it’s the mortgage professional – the LUSO Federal Credit Union loan officers, processors, underwriters, or originators – who make that dream come to fruition.
At LUSO, we are committed to helping our members navigate through major life events with an eye toward overall financial health and wellness. Most people are unaware of the number of people and amount of work involved from the time an individual decides to purchase a home to the day the final contracts are signed. Our Lending staff work together with home buyers to help them make a successful transition to home ownership through our various mortgage products.
