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 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
