What our members say about us
As first time homebuyers, we had a fantastic experience with Educational Systems FCU! The online application was quick and easy. Our loan officer was responsible and made sure we had all of the information we needed to feel comfortable throughout the entire purchase process, she even attended settlement. It was great working with Educational Systems FCU to purchase our forever home.
