June marks National Homeownership Month – a month dedicated to celebrating and promoting the benefits homeownership brings to individuals and families across the country. Colonial has been proudly offering a wide variety of home loan solutions coupled with award-winning customer service for more than 70 years.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with our story, Colonial was founded by Jimmy DuBose in 1952 after returning from World War II and earning a degree in Business from the University of Texas. Then known as Fort Worth Mortgage, the company provided residential home loans to growing post-World War II communities of North Central Texas.
While Colonial now offers home loans in all 50 states and provides Mortgage Services to more than 130,000 customers across the country, we still hold true to Jimmy’s vision of helping our friends and neighbors achieve their dream of homeownership.
Although Colonial firmly believes that it is our duty each and every month to advocate for and acknowledge the numerous benefits of homeownership, we are very excited to do so during National Homeownership Month.
