RISMEDIA, July 14, 2010—Introduced in May 2009, REALTORS® Federal Credit Union (REALTORS® FCU) understands the work habits and lifestyles of busy real estate professionals. As a virtual credit union, Realtors FCU is always open, giving you and your agents the freedom to manage your finances—when and where you want. Realtors FCU is a great supplement to your financial portfolio, offering an array of diverse products and services, along with federally insured deposits, fewer fees and highly competitive interest and dividend rates on a variety of savings, investments and loans.
And now Realtors FCU is excited to announce its new Partner Program, which provides additional rewards and incentives to large brokerages and associations that promote the benefits of credit union membership.
“Credit unions operate under the philosophy of ‘people helping people’ and that is what our Partner Program is all about,” explains Realtors FCU CEO Tom Glatt. “Realtors FCU helps real estate brokers enhance the value of the benefits they provide to their agents by helping them with their financial needs. And by helping spread the message about Realtors FCU, brokers can earn exciting incentives. Everybody wins.
“Our Partners are key to growing our credit union family,” he adds. “The quicker the credit union grows, the quicker it can develop additional products and services to benefit all members.”
