First Eagle is now officially my new go-to credit union! My daughter and mother had been advising me to just give them a chance to see if they could beat my former credit union of 15 years…First Eagle left my former CU in the dust! I’m now in the process of moving everything to First Eagle! Oh and I can’t tell this testimony without saying how helpful and nice Heidi and Allison were to me. I was in a bit of a time crunch and they went above and beyond to get it done! Every client that sits in my chair and talks any kind of financial business gets to hear my amazing story of how I became a First Eagle member!
After always being turned down, First Eagle finally made things possible for me. Their customer service is amazing! They treat me like family, and like we have known each other forever. They were able to refinance my auto loan with a lower interest rate, and offered a personal loan so I could pay off old credit card debt. I feel like I am finally on the right path to rebuilding my credit! I will for sure make First Eagle my choice when it comes time to purchase a home.
I opened my first savings account at First Eagle in 1969, when I went to work for MAGIC (Maryland American General Insurance Company). I financed my first car and will finance my last car through “my credit union”! I am now retired, however, my friends and former co-workers in the Houston Branch are always there for me. It doesn’t matter if I simply need a check register mailed to me (who uses those anymore?), a wire transfer or a new car loan, I can depend on them! I will be a lifetime member because of these amazing people and helpful services!
I’ve been a member of First Eagle since 1977. I never knew much about banking and saving but I had always heard great things about credit unions. In the 1990s, after some horrible money choices as well as a family health crisis, I found myself at the point of bankruptcy. No ‘big bank’ would help, so I turned to First Eagle. Initially, I was declined-that’s how badly in debt I was. But someone there had a change of heart and gave me a chance. I grabbed the chance and did not look back. Not only were my ‘senior’ years approaching, but I couldn’t blow the chance I was given. And I didn’t. With help from First Eagle, I was able to right my ship and enter this ‘senior’ phase of life and still own my home. Without First Eagle membership, I have no doubt I would have lost my home and destroyed my family’s security. I am forever grateful and forever a member!
I have been a member since 1990, having joined when I was first employed at Maryland Casualty. I think every car loan I’ve ever had has been through the Credit Union. Recently, I was in a financial situation so overwhelming that I was researching what I needed to do to declare bankruptcy. I thought I had looked at every option available, but then I realized I hadn’t asked First Eagle, I figured I had nothing to lose! After describing my problem, they reviewed my account, credit history, and came up with a solution that I had never considered! I immediately felt a 10-ton weight lift from my shoulders! This experience started as one of the lowest points in my adulthood, when I felt truly at a loss. First Eagle’s compassion and enthusiasm for helping me did as much for my soul as it did for my finances! First Eagle will forever be my bank of choice, and I’ve encouraged everyone I know to become a member of a credit union.
A couple of weeks ago my daughter told me she found a car she wanted to buy. She has Lupus and has a lot of pain after being on her feet all day, she wanted to trade in her car for one that has lumbar heated seats to ease her pain en-route home. She was shocked that the bank where she has had all her business and car loan required her to have a co-signer. She could not believe they expected her at the age of 49 and decent credit score to have a co-signer. I told her about First Eagle and how they always came thru for me in time of need. She called and the deal was done. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a bank who goes the extra mile for its customers to call First Eagle and let them help with whatever needs they have.
