STCU to open new home loan center in Spokane Valley

Spokane Teachers Credit Union will open its first stand-alone home loan center on August 29 at I-90’s Argonne interchange.

This step is designed to help the credit union meet the growing demand for real estate loans.

“STCU members will always be able to visit their neighborhood branch location, or go online to apply for a home loan and sign documents,” said STCU Vice President of Lending David Flood. “This stand-alone center gives them another convenient location, with easy access from Interstate 90.”

Located at 9207 E. Mission, the Argonne Home Loan Center is on 2 ½ acres STCU purchased in 2012.

The credit union has extensively remodeled the existing 2,595-square-foot office building, dramatically changing the look of the 1970s-era building.

Staff at the Argonne Home Loan Center will be led by Home Loan Sales Manager Trina Murphy, who has 30 years of home lending experience. Additional staff include Home Loan Officer Kelly Bennett and Loan Officer Assistant Karen Bucknell.

Other loan officers will rotate into the centers, and more permanent positions will be added soon.

While transactions inside the building will be limited to those directly related to real estate lending, the site includes two drive-through ATMs.

Like those at any STCU branch location, the ATMs are part of the CO-OP Network, meaning their use is surcharge-free, not only for STCU members, but also for members of any credit union that participates in the network.

In addition to the Argonne site, in November, STCU will open its first Tri-Cities location, called the Southridge Financial and Home Loan Center. That full-service branch, located in Kennewick, will include separate space dedicated to helping members with their real estate lending needs.
