Working for our members has always been my personal philosophy and UFCU takes that same philosophy to heart in all lines of business. I have a passion for educating the members I work with to make them feel comfortable with every step of the mortgage loan process. In the ever changing real estate environment I want to be your trusted source for mortgage information and loans.

"Searching for a new place to live where you plan to spend many years is an important decision and big financial investment. It can be extremely confusing and stressful. There are so many things to look for in a new home and so many decisions to make. You need someone whose judgement you can trust and someone you know is putting your wants and needs above everything else. Marcela Alfonsin was highly recommended to me as a real estate agent when I began my search. She was everything I wanted in an agent and much more. She really cares for her clients and gives you her full devotion. She is extremely knowledgeable in the market and honest in her opinions I have bought and sold homes in the past but have never had anyone stand by me and help me as much as Marcela. I will always be grateful."
