About Colonial

We know there are all kinds of banking, mortgage and insurance options you can choose from. That's why Colonial is here for you and always ready to help you decide which products are best for you. Here’s what makes us so different and why it adds up to bigger benefits for all our customers.


People-icon.pngRelationships. MADE HERE.

Colonial has cultivated a business model that is unlike any other in the financial industry, with service that goes well beyond the ordinary.




building-icon.pngWe've been around since 1952.

Since our founding by Chairman Emeritus Jimmy DuBose, we've resisted fads and stuck to our strength: offering good banking, mortgage and insurance products to our customers at fair prices and terms.



main-st-icon.pngWe're privately held – by choice.

We don't answer to thousands of stockholders with an appetite for pocketing huge returns on your money. Being privately held means our focus stays on our customers and not the whims of Wall Street.



national-icon.png Our performance is nationally recognized.

We're rated "Five Stars – Highly Recommended" by Bauer Financial as one of the strongest financial institutions in the country. Plus, we're recognized by Fannie Mae as one of the top mortgage servicers in the nation.  The Better Business Bureau has given us an A+ rating.



money-check-icon.pngWe retain servicing on 97 % of home loans we make.

We don't sell our mortgage servicing to other companies after closing. We collect your payments, manage your escrow accounts for taxes and insurance and maintain the relationship for the long term. Why does retained servicing matter so much? Because you'll always know who holds your home loan and who to call if you have questions or problems.



awards-icon.png We may not be splashy, but we're solid.

We don't spend millions of dollars on advertising because we'd have to pass those costs along to you. We rely on referrals from satisfied customers. Your opinion is more valuable than expensive ad campaigns.

Colonial Spreads Holiday Cheer to Soldier Stationed Abroadhttp://www.gocolonial.com/community/Pages/colonial-supports-the-troops.aspxColonial Spreads Holiday Cheer to Soldier Stationed Abroad<div><br></div><p><img src="/community/PublishingImages/Pages/colonial-supports-the-troops/Sharp_Family-Crop.PNG" alt="Sharp_Family-Crop.PNG" class="ms-rtePosition-2" style="margin:5px 20px;width:350px;height:235px;" /> Spending time with family and friends during the holidays is something many of us may take for granted. We have our holiday traditions, like dinner at grandma's or watching our favorite holiday films, but for the many men and women who are currently serving in the United States military, they are unable to be home for the holidays. They are stationed around the world on ships, bases and submarines, miles away from the ones they love.</p><p>In keeping with a tradition that began last year, Colonial employees wanted to give a piece of home this holiday season to one of our Colonial family's loved ones while they are stationed abroad.</p><p>This year's recipient of holiday care packages was Kathleen Sharp, daughter of Laura Smith, a Senior Underwriter with Colonial.</p><p>Sharp, a doctor at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, is also a Major in the Texas Army Reserves. Sharp was called to duty on September 30 and has been deployed to Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Africa since. Being away from family is always difficult, but that is magnified when your loved one is away for the holidays.</p><p><img src="/community/PublishingImages/Pages/colonial-supports-the-troops/Kathleen_Sharp_web.jpg" alt="Colonial Spreads Holiday Cheer to Soldier Stationed Abroad - Kathleen Sharp" class="ms-rtePosition-2" style="margin:5px 20px;width:350px;height:467px;" />Sharp has four children, two sets of twins, Cheyenne and Kaitlin, 13 and Maya and Aaron, 15.</p><p>"This is the first time my daughter has ever been away from us during holidays, we all miss her so much," said Smith. "However, with the goodness and love Colonial has provided her and her troops, it makes missing her a tiny bit better."</p><p>Sharp received care packages just in time for Christmas, each containing a special letter from Colonial along with a multitude of gifts and treats including snacks, baked goods, games, DVDs and hand-written notes form Colonial employees. She will share all of the donated treats with her fellow soldiers who will no doubt feel the joy Colonial has spread.</p><p>"It put a smile on everyone's faces and made their tummies happy," said Sharp. "They were greatly appreciated."</p><p>"Knowing my daughter and her troops were able to receive some comforts of home while away means so much to me, it truly warms my hearts," said Smith. "I thank you all for providing them with all the love."</p><p>The drive was organized by Colonial's Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee who saw contributions from employees company-wide. We would like to say thank you to everyone who donated items to help spread a little holiday cheer to a soldier abroad.</p><p>​​​​​​</p>2017-12-21T05:00:00Z

The Fort Worth-based team competes in events across the Country including 5k and 10k races, triathlons, Ironman races, marathons, trail runs and more.</p><p>After getting off to a hot start at the beginning of the 2017 racing season, which traditionally runs from February through November, the Relentless Racing team continued to shine throughout the fall and into winter.</p><p>One of the reasons for their continued success was the addition of professional triathlete Lauren Brandon. Brandon placed in the top 10 in a number of races on the professional racing circuit, highlighted by outstanding showings at the World Championships in Chattanooga, Tennessee and the Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.</p><p>The Ironman World Championships is one of the world's most grueling races, consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon 26.22-mile run.</p><p>Brandon was co-leader out of the water at Ironman World Championship and was out in front early on during the cycling stage, all while Colonial's logo was visible on her racing uniform. </p><p>Relentless Racing staples and husband-and-wife duo Brian and Ali Miller continued their great year of racing at the tail end of the 2017 season. They both enjoyed strong finishes at a number of high-profile races including the Ironman World Championship, where Alison finished 17<sup>th</sup> in her group.</p><p>After her strong finish in Hawaii, Ali won the overall female title at Fort Worth's Friends of the River Bash on October 26.</p><p>Relentless Racing also added seasoned racers Bob Kilinski and Jason Bahamuni to the team, who both enjoyed great finishes at Ironman races in Florida and Maryland, respectively.</p><p>Congratulations to the entire Relentless Racing team on another year of hard-work and strong finishes. We can't wait for you all to hit the ground running, swimming and cycling at the start of the 2018 season in February!</p><p> </p>2018-01-15T05:00:00Z
Colonial Employees Attend NAHREP 2017http://www.gocolonial.com/community/Pages/nahrep.aspxColonial Employees Attend NAHREP 2017<p>Colonial was thrilled to be in attendance at the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals' (NAHREP) annual National Convention and Latin Music Festival and Elevate Mortgage Summit in Dallas, Texas on September 9 – 12. </p><p><img class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="NAHREP-group.jpg" src="/community/PublishingImages/Pages/nahrep/NAHREP-group.jpg" style="margin:5px 10px;" />Each year, thousands of Real Estate and Mortgage professionals from around the country gather to learn the latest trends from some of the most respected leaders in the industry, share industry knowledge and insights, participate in business building workshops and more.</p><p>"It's imperative to have an organization such as NAHREP to continue to improve homeownership in the Hispanic community," said Leticia Vu, Multicultural Market Manager. "One very important way they accomplish this is by educating and empowering the real estate professionals who serve the Hispanic home buyers and sellers. Their annual national convention is a perfect example and the highlight of the year!  We at Colonial value our relationship with NAHREP because we understand how important it is to partner with an organization that is such an advocate for Hispanic homebuyers."</p><p>This year's conference included talented speakers from not only all over the mortgage industry, but also included NBA head coach Earl Watson, the first head coach with a Hispanic background, Gabriela Natale, the first Hispanic woman to win three back- to-back daytime Emmys, and former President George W. Bush served as a keynote speaker.</p><p>Over the course of the four-day conference, Colonial and CU Members staff was on-hand to show their support of NAHREP and to network with other industry leaders. </p><p>Founded in 1999, NAHREP touts itself as "the voice for Hispanic Real Estate and proud champions of homeownership for the Hispanic community." </p><p><em>Pictured right: Nelson Leonor, Leticia Lucio Vu and Simon O.

Colonial Donates Back to School Supplies to Two Fort Worth Area Schoolshttp://www.gocolonial.com/community/Pages/back-to-school-donations.aspxColonial Donates Back to School Supplies to Two Fort Worth Area Schools<p>Colonial recently hosted a back to school supply drive at our corporate headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas to benefit two Fort Worth-area schools. Donation boxes were set up all around the Colonial campus to collect items for students at Stripling Middle School and Fort Worth ISD Leadership Academy at Forest Oak.</p><p>For the majority of schools in Texas and around the country, school supplies are purchased by the student's families and even the teachers themselves, typically coming out of their own pocket. Colonial wanted to ease the financial burden for many of these families and teachers by donating school supplies including, pencils, notebooks, Kleenex, rulers, markers, highlighters, papers and more. </p><p>Colonial was overwhelmed by the support of our employees as we collected hundreds of items including multiple prepacked complete supply kits containing one composition notebook, one subject notebook, loose leaf paper, index cards, 10 #2 pencils, pencil sharpener, 15 pencil erasers, four glue sticks, one bottle glue and a pencil pouch, as well as individual donations of notebooks, boxes of #2 pencils, folders, packages of markers and hundreds of other items that will contribute to the children's education and be put to great use.</p><p>"Colonial's long history of contributing to the community is inspiring," said Debbi Spiker, AVP Employee Relations and Benefits. "The generosity and compassion of the Colonial family, in support of these two wonderful schools, was extraordinary and made such a difference in the lives of so many children."</p><p>Colonial has had a longstanding relationship with Stripling Middle School who recently named their auditorium after Colonial Founder and Chairman Emeritus Jimmy DuBose, who attended school there.</p><p>The 2017 – 2018 school year marks Colonial's first partnership with Fort Worth ISD Leadership Academy at Forest Oak. </p><p>Thank you to everyone who donated to this worthy cause.</p><p style="text-align:center;"><img alt="stripling-supply-donation.jpg" src="/community/PublishingImages/Pages/back-to-school-donations/stripling-supply-donation.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:600px;height:400px;" /> </p><p><em>Pictured from left to right: Glenda Bain, Payroll Clerk, Kay Roper, Benefits Specialist, Amy Bishop, Principal, Stripling Middle School, Mark Mendoza, Purchasing Lead and Ryan Harvey, Purchasing Clerk.</em></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img alt="forest-oak-supply-donation.jpg" src="/community/PublishingImages/Pages/back-to-school-donations/forest-oak-supply-donation.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:600px;height:405px;" /> </p><p><em>Pictured from left to right: Kay Roper, Glenda Bain, Marvin Duckett, Audit Coordinator, Joseph Cato, Counselor, Fort Worth ISD Leadership Academy at Forest Oak, Mark Mendoza and Ryan Harvey.</em></p><p>​</p>2017-08-28T04:00:00Z

Community Reinvestment Act Public File

An amendment to the Community Reinvestment Act in 1990 requires that each bank's CRA rating be made public. Accordingly, banks and thrifts must maintain a public CRA file that contains the public section of their most recent CRA Performance Review, a list of services and branches, written comments from the public, and certain other information.
