Teachers Federal Credit Union’s successful mortgage refinance business scored the credit union some cable TV face time.
Nancy Orlando, senior vice president of lending for the $2.6 billion TFCU, joined two other panelists on “News 12 Long Island’s LI Talks” a live Feb. 4 broadcast that allowed viewers to call in and ask mortgage refinancing questions. The show was replayed four times the following weekend.
A number of TFCU members were among the callers, allowing Orlando to provide suggestions regarding TFCU programs.
“Providing information to the public and our members is important to us at TFCU. Appearing on this program and answering both general and specific questions allowed me to educate local people about refinancing options and highlight that TFCU is available to offer these services to members and potential members in our market,” Orlando said.
Headquartered in Farmingville, N.Y., TFCU has seen a 600% increase in refinance applications since December 2008.
