CU, AmeriCU Mortgage team to build lending
ST. PAUL, Minn. (2/5/13)--A partnership between HomeTown CU in Owatonna, Minn., and AmeriCU Mortgage Co. is helping bolster new lending relationships in the credit union's community.

The two organizations recently organized an open house for realtors in the area to help the credit union build, strengthen and improve its loan portfolios, according to the Minnesota Credit Union Network.

At the event, representatives in the housing industry met and networked with the credit union's loan officers. The open house also allowed the $107 million asset credit union to educate realtors about available programs and to develop relationships with real estate organizations, MnCUN said.

"This open house event presented a unique opportunity for the credit union to begin to diversify its mortgage lending beyond refinancing, and demonstrate that building relationships with real estate agents and organizations is a key step in finding additional loan sources," said MnCUN Vice President-Network Service Corp. John Ferstl. "The hope is that, through this event, we can create awareness that our strategic alliance partners are willing to work with credit unions and customize ways to improve their bottom line."

AmeriCU Mortgage Co. is a strategic alliance partner of MnCUN. Through MnCUN's Network Service Corp., credit unions have access to products and services that AmeriCU and MnCUN's other strategic alliance partners offer, said MnCUN.
