BCU celebrates 5th Anniversary of HomeAdvantage™

CHICAGO, IL (July 16, 2015) — BCU marks five years of its HomeAdvantage program in 2015. During that time, the Credit Union has helped 545 families save over $730,000 in real estate transaction fees.

The HomeAdvantage service, which gives Credit Union members free access to real estate listings, research tools, agent referrals, financing options and more, is administered by CU Realty Services. A CUSO (Credit Union Service Organization), CU Realty counts BCU Vice President of Mortgage Lending Herb Behrens among its Board of Directors.

BCU members who buy or sell a home using an agent in the HomeAdvantage network qualify to earn a 20% rebate on their real estate agent’s commission.

BCU has led all Illinois credit unions in new mortgage originations every year since 2012.

“Buying or selling a home can be overwhelming for anyone,” said Bob Pondelicek, Director of Mortgage Sales at BCU. “HomeAdvantage lets us help current or new members navigate the process successfully while keeping a lot more money in their pocket.”
