Craig needed to move his family to Georgia, but had difficulty buying a new home, until he found Peach State FCU!

“A light to guide me home”

When the market crashed in 2008 I was approaching my 30th year as a New York State Trooper. I found myself with difficult decisions. I had two very smart and driven teenagers that were in middle school and the mortgage for our home was now much higher than the market value. We made the decision to sell our home and move our family to Georgia where our children could take advantage of the Hope Scholarship. My wife and kids rented a home in Georgia while I continued my career as a New York State Trooper. For 5 years I would travel from New York to Georgia once a month for 10 days to be with my wife and kids. Upon retirement we set out on the journey to locate permanent housing in Georgia. I had always had accounts with Federal Credit Unions and so we prayed and God led us to Peach State to seek funding for a new home. The representatives and the process at Peach State went so smoothly. We were so pleased with every step; every transaction. We cannot tell you what the moment felt like when the representatives from Peach State informed us that we had been approved for the loan. After years of trying to find “home” we knew that Peach State was going to make that happen for us. Now we have more than we ever dreamed of and all that we could have ever hoped for. Thank you Peach State!
