Santa Rosa, Calif – Redwood Credit Union (RCU) has promoted Laureen Barnes to manager of mortgage lending. In her new position, Barnes will implement and lead RCU’s residential mortgage lending channels with a focus on providing
excellent service and sound lending.
Barnes joined RCU’s mortgage lending team two and half years ago as an assistant manager. She began her career in the mortgage industry in 1990 with First Security Loans and worked her way up through various positions to learn all aspects of mortgage
lending, serving at Old Redwood Mortgage, SIB Mortgage, Aegis Wholesale and Parkside Lending and, most recently, Bay Equity Home Loans.
“Making a difference in the community is what I love best about working for Redwood Credit Union,” says Barnes. “I get to help people realize the dream of home ownership every day.”
