The Warren Group Ranks St. Mary’s Bank #1 Credit Union in NH for Lending

Posted On 3/27/2020
MANCHESTER, NH (March 27, 2020) — St. Mary’s Bank closed more loans and had a higher volume of loans than any other credit union in New Hampshire across multiple categories last year according to The Registry Review, a leading New Hampshire real estate financial newspaper published by The Warren Group.
The nation’s first credit union took the top spot for dollar volume and number of loans in all of the following loan categories: single-family purchases, condo purchases, residential refinancing, and commercial real estate.
“We are so pleased to be the lender of choice for so many New Hampshire borrowers,” said Jan Raymond, St. Mary’s Bank’s chief lending officer. “I think there are many reasons why borrowers choose St. Mary’s Bank, from our flexible loan terms and attractive rates to our easy online application process. But I really have to give the most credit to our lenders. Their expertise and commitment to member service transforms what is considered just a transaction by many into a long-term relationship.”
St. Mary’s Bank lends statewide and operates full-service mortgage centers in Nashua, Concord, and Portsmouth. The credit union’s commercial banking team is centrally based in Manchester and provides real estate and construction loans for businesses around the Granite State.
The Registry Review published The Warren Group’s report on 2019’s top lenders on March 23, 2020. The data compiled in the report represents purchase and non-purchase loans made by banks, credit unions, and mortgage companies in 2019.
