CU Companies Realty has a lot to offer as a division of CU Companies, a credit union service organization owned by over 70 credit unions in Minnesota.

In March the Hudson area office opened at Outpost Circle. Joining manager and broker Jim Fowler of River Falls are Laura Audette of Spring Valley and Steven Mark of Ellsworth.

They are all experienced agents and have sold a combined 1,000 homes in western Wisconsin.

"We are not new to the business," said Fowler. "We are experienced and love the area. Our service area is Pierce and St. Croix counties."

Anybody can use the services offered by CU Companies which include realty, mortgage and title work. You do not have to be a credit union member to take advantage of the unique savings they can offer due to their economically stable status.

"We are unique in that we are credit-union owned," said Fowler. "We are a full service real estate company offering reduced rates." Presently CU Companies is offering 4.5 percent commission rates for the sellers and $500 cash back for home buyers at closing.

They participate in and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
