UFCU Ranked #1 Austin Mortgage Company


Austin, TEXAS, October 30, 2020 — For the fifth consecutive year, UFCU has been named Austin’s top mortgage company by the Austin Business Journal.

UFCU, Austin’s largest locally owned financial institution, led the Journal’s annual list of Top Mortgage Companies with a total of 3,202 Austin-area mortgages closed in 2019. Total Austin mortgage loan volume exceeded $991 million.

UFCU mortgage lenders closed more than twice as many Austin-area residential mortgages in 2019 as any other lender, with a dollar volume 2.5 times the next most active lender. UFCU was the only credit union to rank in the Top 10 mortgage companies.

The 2020 list ranks mortgage companies by the number of 2019 residential mortgages closed for Austin-area properties by the lender’s local team. It also ranks the lenders by total mortgage loan volume. Additionally, the Business Journal tracks dollar volume and loan count for deals in Travis, Williamson, Hays, Bastrop, Caldwell and Burnet counties.

“Our passion is helping Members achieve their financial dreams, and for many that dream is home ownership,” said Tony C Budet, UFCU president/CEO. “We are thrilled to help make that dream come true year after year for so many homeowners in the communities we serve. We thrive on building meaningful relationships with our Members to support them through every stage of their lives and financial journeys.”
