St. Mary’s Bank Recognized as Top Housing Lender for seventh year

MANCHESTER – New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority recently named St. Mary’s Bank, the nation’s first credit union, a Top 10 Lender for the seventh straight year.

“New Hampshire Housing shares our passion for making first-time homeownership attainable and affordable in a challenging market,” comments Karen Mayrand, Senior Vice President and Director of Residential Lending at St. Mary’s Bank. “This recognition demonstrates our commitment to first-time homebuyers around the state, and we are deeply proud to be named a top lender once again.”

The Mortgage Center at St. Mary’s Bank participates in New Hampshire Housing’s Home Flex and Home Flex Plus Programs. These programs make homeownership possible for low- to moderate-income households through low, fixed interest rates; low down payment requirements; and assistance grants to use toward down payment and closing costs. Most condominiums and 1-4-family homes qualify for these programs.
