Summit was also Dane County’s top home mortgage lender in 2010.

Summit is also ranked as the top first-mortgage (purchases and refinances) granting credit union in Wisconsin (and ranks 15th in the nation) as of Sept. 30, 2011, according to the American Credit Union Mortgage Association.  (Editor’s note:  The results for 2011 year-end rankings will be released by ACUMA in April, 2012).

“In addition to our competitive rates and low closing costs, members have told us that they see Summit as a trustworthy partner in helping them make financial decisions,” said Kim Sponem, CEO/President of Summit Credit Union.  “The referrals we’ve received from our members puts action behind these accolades and is a big reason why we’re ranked as the top mortgage lender in Dane County for the second year in a row.”
