For Unitus, 2016 was a landmark year. 2017 is a milestone year.

Thank you, our members, for coming together and contributing a year of continued growth and increased community impact. Last year was a landmark year for Unitus as we were fortunate to reach 1 billion dollars in assets. I received the honor of joining this great Credit Union as President and CEO. This year, our milestone 80th anniversary year, will be a special year filled with more member service improvements, community based initiatives and unwavering dedication to our membership.

The appraiser shortage, and what you can do about it

Prospective homebuyers are facing major difficulties closing on the homes they want in this booming Portland housing market. This isn’t only because housing is in short supply. There’s also a shortage of a resource becoming more and more valuable: the appraiser’s time. To learn more about the situation and how you can take control of it, we interviewed Brad Goodenough, our Home Loan Expert at the Unitus Plaza Branch.


You are invited to visit our redesigned website! Launched on January 25, our new site is mobile responsive so it works great on any device. Explore our new Unitus Pathfinder, a step-by-step financial guide to help you finance your major life events, including buying a home, starting a family, and planning for retirement.
