Making Home Ownership Happen

When Bartosz and Kamila S came to Galveston from Poland more than 10 years ago, a friend took them to UFCU. Since then, they’ve partnered with UFCU to purchase their first car and their first home. New to the country as well as the ins and outs of home-buying, UFCU helped them make it happen.

Bartosz & Kamila S"We’d been renting for many years when we decided to consider purchasing a home. We reached out to UFCU, and they helped us look at different price points and different payment options and told us about a first-time home buyer seminar that UFCU had organized. That seminar educated us, and their advice helped us realize we really could afford to purchase a home.

We went to see several houses, but when we saw our house, it was the right price at the right time, and that was it. Kamila contacted the real estate agent, and from the moment we made the offer, it took UFCU only two weeks to finalize the loan. Our representatives were so quick and easy to work with, and even our agent said that this transaction was the easiest, fastest, and smoothest he’d ever done.

We didn’t know anything about buying a home, but UFCU helped us make it happen. When we compare our experiences at UFCU with our friends’ experiences at other banks, we realize how fortunate we are.”
