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.

Relentless Racing Enjoys Another Year of Successhttp://www.gocolonial.com/community/Pages/Relentless_Racing_Enjoys_Another_Year_of_Success.aspxRelentless Racing Enjoys Another Year of Success<p>Colonial-Sponsored multisport racing team, Relentless Racing, continues to make quite a name for itself both locally and across the United States. 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>Relentless Racing team members Cyril Russell, Jason Bahamundi and Alison Miller were even featured in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Sports Day newspapers, respectively. Their recent accomplishments were celebrated as they continue to train and perform at a high level. </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.

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 class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="Sharp_Family-Crop.PNG" src="/community/PublishingImages/Pages/colonial-supports-the-troops/Sharp_Family-Crop.PNG" 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 class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="Colonial Spreads Holiday Cheer to Soldier Stationed Abroad - Kathleen Sharp" src="/community/PublishingImages/Pages/colonial-supports-the-troops/Kathleen_Sharp_web.jpg" 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><p>​​​​​​</p>2017-12-21T05:00:00Z
