We have a First Eagle Federal credit Union on my job and I love it…Everything you need is right there and the staff is wonderful, very helpful.

I have been dealing with Pam Cody and Mike Mosley for many years. I can’t say enough about both of them. They represent the best in making the customer feel good and their professionalism is beyond compare. Better than that, I consider them to be friends of my wife and I.

I had no credit, which is often looked at as bad credit. First Eagle Federal Credit Union gave me my first Car Loan, which turned into two Car Loans. Thanks so much for the opportunity of building my Credit for the better.

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 C.U. In the dust!
