Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast This was fastest and easiest loan I have ever obtained. I went in to speak to someone originally and actually didn't even need to. Everything was done via e-mail and I had a check 4 days later. I am going to try to refi with DCU as well for other loans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Loan Representative Amy was just fantastic to deal with! Truly a great experience. From our first conversation through the loan closing, Amy was patient, proactive, and enormously knowledgeable. DCU has an incredible capacity to hire team members that always have a great attitude. Over the past 10 years, not once has the experience been anything but outstanding. How does DCU do it? Thank you!
