If you’re looking for a credit union you can trust in San Juan County, you can turn to a company I trust: SAN JUAN CREDIT UNION.
I trust SAN JUAN CREDIT UNION because we have investigated the business, we have looked into their history, their services, and the way they treat their members.
“We have a lot of one-on-one communication with our members,” says SAN JUAN CREDIT UNION CEO, Sherry Patterson. “Often times we hear, ‘You guys get a lot of foot traffic in your lobby.’ I find that our members really enjoy interacting with our staff, and they choose to come inside instead of going through the drive-thru or doing online banking.”
Sherry tells me that SAN JUAN CREDIT UNION started in 1963 with ten members. Over 50 years later, they now have two branches, and over 4100 members. And when it comes to services, Sherry says to expect all of the great services you would find at any large financial institution, but with a touch. “SAN JUAN CREDIT UNION offers personal saving and checking accounts, loans, IRA’s, and CD’S.”
“We try and make a difference in our member’s lives.”
One area that Sherry tells me makes SAN JUAN CREDIT UNION stand apart from other financial institutions is their loan programs. “We do a lot of loans for people who would not qualify elsewhere because of their credit history. We try and make a difference in our member’s lives by looking at all things possible. In return, we find that our members are very loyal to us. They know that we’re sometimes their last resort, so they make their payments and they stay with us.”
On top of regular personal loans, SAN JUAN CREDIT UNION offers a ‘loan holiday’ once a year. “We offer a loan holiday program that allows a member who has had a loan with us for more than one year, and has stayed current each month, to skip a payment once a year. Our members really enjoy this perk.”
“Our staff is very experienced and has been with us a long time.”
Sherry tells me that members can expect to be treated like family when they visit one of their branches. “Our staff is very experienced and has been with us a long time. One of our employees has been here 15 years; another 10 years. We don’t see much turnover; which is why we’re able to get to know our members so we can better serve them. Our members mean everything to us”
So there you go: SAN JUAN CREDIT UNION. Now you know what our investigation has revealed about this company. You know about their history, their services, and the way they treat their clients.
