Additionally, Mary Ann spoke of their recent experience purchasing their home, “The HomeAdvantage program was helpful. We’re brand new home buyers so it was really nice to get a referral to a great real estate agent who took care of us every step of the way.”
“We know that when buying a home, every advantage matters. BCU is thrilled to award these members with $24,000 to help them live mortgage free, and empower them to achieve financial freedom,” says Bob Pondelicek, Senior Director, Mortgage Sales.
