Falana WOW'ed this member, and HE wrote the story...

The transition from Woodstore Credit Union to Qualstar, like any merger, can be fraught with alignment issues.

Systems, processes, cultures, people, etc…I’ve experienced some of these issues from a customer perspective coming from Woodstone as well.

However, I had a very pleasant customer experience on 8/3/2018 with Falana Clark, the Branch Manager in Kent.

She helped with a deposit, then listened to my concerns such as is there a member CU closer to my home they take deposits, does Qualstar have a Certified Financial Planner or equivalent for financial services? Falana handled each of these requests delightfully, with a desire to help.

She even helped me with testing the Kent ATM with my account number to ensure deposit capabilities. In addition, she personally contacted Qualstar’s Investment Advisor at the Federal Way branch to determine his financial accreditation’s and experience while I was at the branch. She is now the primary reason I plan on staying with Qualstar.

Please pass along my compliments to her. She did a wonderful job and is a credit to your organization.

Who KNOWS what an Auto Loan pre-approval can turn into?! Jacy does!

A member came in to our Redmond branch for assistance on filing card dispute paperwork, so I helped him with that and noticed he received an auto pre-approval offer from us. I asked if he saw the offer, and he didn’t think he had. When I told him he was pre-approved, he mentioned he needed an upgrade since his current car’s odometer reading is at 250k miles! I gave him my business card and told him to give me a call when he’s ready to get started…

Kirk’s Equity Loan Idea Turns Into a Hat Trick, Saving This Member HUNDREDS a Month!

When this member walked in, my co-workers were helping other members so I told him I could help at the desk if his transaction did not involve cash. He had a check to deposit, so I invited him to sit. As I was processing the transaction, I noticed his Visa Gold was pretty close to its limit and wondered if an equity loan at a lower rate might work better for him. I asked if he had a mortgage, and after he told me his balance and current rate I explained we have two equity loans with no fees and no closing costs.
