An Amazing View

A story from our member, Henry

Back in October 2013, Henry and his wife moved into their home with a view…. an amazing view.

And just recently Henry reached out to us to say “thank you again” to Steven Raymond, our VP of Residential Lending for “all of [his] calm, assertive professionalism.” Steven “really made the financial portion of the home buying process go smoothly,” said Henry, explaining that it was the best part of the experience.

“We’re happy in our new home {with} the amazing view I have the privilege of seeing everyday.”

We’re happy you’re happy, Henry. It’s our pleasure to assist in any way we can.

Enterprise Raising $ for CU4Kids

Now through July 31st, 2015

We always love to hear about ways that our partners are reaching out to the community. Our long time partner, Enterprise Car Sales, is doing something extra special in the credit union community that benefits Credit Unions for Kids.  We thought we’d share!

Finance A Vehicle And A Donation Is Made

Now through July 31st, Credit Unions for Kids will receive a $100 donation when you finance your vehicle through a participating credit union – USAgencies is one of those participating CUs! So, buy an Enterprise Car, finance it with USAgencies, and Credit Unions for Kids gets $100. Pretty neat, eh?

Here’s a flier from Enterprise with all the details. We encourage you to check it out!

Thank A Veteran

#ThankAVeteran #MemorialDay

Our staff and members have been having some time out to capture a #selfie to “Thank A Veteran” or honor someone for Memorial Day.

Take a look at our social media feeds over the last few days – fun, huh?

You can get involved too! Here’s how:

  • Print a #ThankAVeteran or #MemorialDay sign and take some selfies too! Post them to your social media account and tag then with the corresponding hashtag. Include #USACU or #USAgenciesCU and we’ll be able to find and share them too!

Rose Festival Fleet Week

USACU Hosts a Booth, June 5th – 7th

Isn’t it the best time of year in Portland, OR? Our backyard here in downtown is transformed with music, food, and all sorts of events during The Rose Festival.

This year we are jumping aboard and hosting a booth in honor of Fleet Week. We’ll be camped out near the entrance to the ship tours from 10am – 4pm Friday, June 5th – Sunday, June 7th just north of the Burnside Bridge near NW Couch. Stop by our booth for a photo op, free gifts, and just to say “hi.” Then take a tour on one or more of the many ships that will be docked along the waterfront.

Learn more about Fleet Week and we hope to see you there!

“Loyal to this outfit”

A story from our member, Phil

It’s always a happy day at USAgencies when we get feedback like this. We just had to share this story from Phil, a member who is “loyal to this outfit”…

Way back when Phil opened his membership he allocated some of his VA funds here into a checking account….. and then ignored it, for years. After a handsome sum ($10K+) accumulated, a USACU employee reached out to him to offer some other solutions for earning a better rate. We offered a CD and set it all up for him.

This above and beyond effort, although a simple action that we do all the time for our members, really stuck with Phil. He called in just this week to tell us that he appreciates all we do for him.

“You guys manage the money; I just manage things so they don’t bounce,” he said.

Phil explained that we should be proud of the staff working here. “They’ve been kind and patient with me over the years. It’s with their voice and actions that they make me loyal to this outfit,” and he’s grateful.

Phil, you probably won’t ever read this, as you proclaim to be “off the grid,” but we sure appreciate YOU, your kind words, and your loyalty to this outfit at USAgencies. We’re proud to call you our member, sir.

Mortgage Moment : Waylon Bowers & Family

Members since 2009. Residents of Bend, Oregon. Completed mortgage loan with USAgencies in 2014.

With relocation from North Carolina to Bend, Oregon on the horizon, Waylon reached out to Steven Raymond, our VP of Residential Lending.

 

“I thought this would be complicated from across the country, but with scanning and sending documents electronically, plus all the closing cost credits Steven secured, it was professional, cost-effective, and very smooth. I plan to use USAgencies for a mortgage again, should I need one.”
