"We cannot thank Shelley Wallace and Northern Birch Credit Union enough for all that they have done in helping us purchase our first house. Shelley went above and beyond to guide us through a particularly challenging real estate experience and in the end, we came out with an even better place to call home. Her warmth and personal touch meant so much to us and makes us so proud to be members of this fantastic organization! Thank you so much."
