Excellent Service
Jason from Watchung, NJ
I am very pleased with Bill and the entire team at Financial Resources Federal Credit Union! They made the home buying process so easy for me and that took a lot of pressure off of me. What I really liked about the process is the fact that everyone at Financial Resources was always ready and able to answer any questions I had and walk me through the process. I would highly recommend them!

 

Maria was awesome to work with!
Desiree from Middlesex, NJ
My husband and I recently decided to refinance our home. We bank with FRCU and we're happy they had such great rates. Maria was our loan originator and she was amazing! She was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and kind. She helped make the whole process easy and quick. We are very pleased with how everything turned out.
