Home Equity Loan is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 191.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grate service I had applied for a HELOC with Fairbanks Credit Union. At first instance the customer service gentlemen informed me that due to the value of the home and what I had as equity it could not happen. I wish i could remember his name but he kept my file and worked on it with their underwriter. Then I received a call form Fairwinds stating with some adjustments they can make it work. And they did a few weeks after that call I was closing on my HELOC and able to take care of a very important medical procedure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy HELOC process Decided to look into a HELOC for a source of funds to upgrade my investment home. Glad I did with Fairwinds. The process was fast, easy, affordable and I had my credit line ready to go in a matter of weeks. Same great service as with my first mortgage, CD's and other accounts with Fairwinds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Team! The Home Equity Loan team was very easy to work with and super friendly and customer focused. We had a a complication during the process. Our processor was accommodating and helped us resolve behind the scenes. We were appreciative of not making a big deal out of a required change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fairly painless. Simple process. Most of the paperwork was done online. Did have to go in for closing. Was surprised by the score they used did not match the standard FICO score. Appreciate the online paperwork very much.
