Security One Lending, a National Mortgage Lender, announces a new marketing agreement with Columbia Credit Union to offer their members reverse mortgages. Columbia Credit Union is a top tier credit union based in Vancouver, Washington.
“The agreement with Columbia Credit Union offers a tremendous opportunity to expand Security One’s reach to the senior demographic,” said Security One Lending President Torrey Larsen. “Our program provides a non-competitive solution for forward thinking financial institutions, like Columbia Credit Union, to leverage our knowledge and proven systems while protecting their members.”
“This agreement is the perfect complement to Columbia’s wide variety of mortgage programs,” said Columbia Credit Union SVP/Chief Lending Officer Bill Fulk. “We were extremely diligent in our partnership selection process, and we’re pleased to refer our senior members to a company that will provide them with the education, care and service they need to make informed decisions on reverse mortgages.”
Columbia Credit Union consistently ranks as a top local mortgage provider and was voted Clark County, Washington’s “Best Financial Institution” in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Columbia’s motto is “Making Life Better,” and last year, the credit union supported numerous organizations to raise more than $2.6 million to make life better for families and businesses in the local community.
Added Fulk, “When our members borrow for a home or save with Columbia, they know their hard earned dollars pour back into the local economy. Our recent growth shows that our members absolutely realize that everyday financial relationships matter, and they’re choosing to Make Life Better with Columbia.”
