Your team includes a BECU Member Advocate, offering support from the BECU side of things – ask questions about when to apply for a loan, what kind of loans BECU offers that fit your budget, and additional financial questions. You can also seek their input when looking for additional guidance during the home-buying process, and just want one more professional opinion.
