United Federal Credit Union Expands Mortgage Offerings to New Locations in Nevada

United Federal Credit Union Nevada Expansion

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – United Federal Credit Union (United) is expanding its presence in Nevada with three new locations. United has been serving members in Nevada since 2009 with multiple branch locations in Reno, Sparks, and Carson City.

In June 2022, the credit union cut the ribbon on its new loan office located at 330 East Main St. in Fernley, growing its footprint in the Reno-Sparks metropolitan area. The Fernley location is a loan production office.

At the Fernley location, Mortgage Advisor Carmen Olivas is working with Members. Olivas has been with United since 2013 and uses her lending experience to assist credit union members with financial counseling and product knowledge regarding real estate financing and generate quality mortgage loans. She is bilingual in English and Spanish and is ready to assist families in the Fernley area.

United is also set to open a Mortgage Loan Office in Henderson in September and one in Summerlin later this fall. United’s mortgage team in the Las Vegas area will help members find the best option to finance their homes as well as assist with virtual account access through United’s online and mobile banking services.

“While many companies are pulling back from the mortgage business, United continues to lean-in and pursue expansion opportunities,” said Andrew Clarkson, Vice President of National Mortgage Production. “We are confident that by following our strategic growth model, we will lend innovative resources to our new markets of Fernley and Las Vegas to members and employees alike. Both regions offer something unique to United and we look forward to the prospect that each market brings.”

The Henderson office will be led by Christopher Rossberg. He has more than six years of mortgage lending experience. Rossberg has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Oregon and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.

In Summerlin, Leslie Sturdivant will lead the office. She brings more than 24 years of mortgage lending and banking experience to her new role. Sturdivant is involved with the Las Vegas Chamber and is a North Las Vegas Chamber Leadership graduate. In the community, she supports Junior Achievement and The Shade Tree Women’s Shelter.
