1The mortgage loan must be completed with CRCU and buyer must present the reward certificate to the Preferred Realtor prior to entering into a representation agreement and/or purchase contract in order to receive the rebate. 2The reward/ referral cash is paid from the Broker/Realtor commission and not by CRCU. 3Offer subject to change. 
Should I get pre-approved before talking to an RBFCU preferred real estate agent?

Getting pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage loan before you begin the shopping process can be a great idea. Knowing how much you’re able to spend on your home will help your preferred real estate agent work with you to find the perfect home in the perfect price range. If you’re ready to get pre-approved, apply here.
