Ben Porter Realty, a long-standing real estate agency, has been purchased by a subsidiary of Redstone Federal Credit Union and is now Redstone Family Realty.
Redstone Family Realty joins RFCU’s network of real estate services: Redstone Family Realty, Redstone Mortgage Services and Redstone Title Services LLC.
“Selling or buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions that we make in our lifetimes,’’ said Joe Newberry, RFCU’s President and CEO. “We are already helping members with mortgages and with their title services, this new business unit makes sure they have the best experience possible from start to finish,’’ he said.
Redstone membership is required to secure a home loan; but not to utilize the services of the title company or the real estate agency.
Ben Porter’s Realtors and agents are now with Redstone Family Realty and continue to operate offices in Huntsville, Madison and Decatur. The newly formed agency provides agents, buyers and sellers with the latest technology and techniques through its affiliation with ERA.
Todd Howard, president of Redstone Family Realty and Redstone Title Services, said it’s exciting to think about all the benefits and savings people will enjoy when they use these services together.
“It’s an absolute game-changer for the Tennessee Valley in regards to real estate,’’ Howard said. “It’s a solid business model that is built on the reputation and integrity of two time-tested organizations: Redstone Federal Credit Union and Ben Porter Realty.’’
