NerdWallet Names Connexus Best Mortgage Lender for HELOCs

For the fourth year in a row, Connexus has clinched a top spot on NerdWallet’s Best-Of Awards list! Following a highly competitive and rigorous evaluation process of financial institutions across the country, Connexus is proud to be named the 2021 Best Mortgage Lender for Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs).

Why Connexus Won: HELOCs Designed With Members in Mind

At Connexus, we strive to consistently innovate and improve our products for a singular purpose: to better serve our members and help them achieve their financial goals. NerdWallet recognized our efforts by highlighting a few of the thoughtful, member-focused features which set our HELOCs apart from our competitors.

Rate Transparency and Personalization

Clear and customized information is what our members need to make good financial decisions, so we were thrilled to see NerdWallet call out Connexus’ commitment to transparency and personalization in our review:


“Connexus readily provides sample rate information for all of its mortgage loan products, as well as Home Equity Loans and HELOCs. Enter a few details, and you can get detailed, personalized rates for any of their loan offerings. Any assumptions made are extremely clear, with the biggest caveat being that the rates shown are for a borrower with excellent credit.”

Flexibility and Options

Connexus members want lots of options when choosing financial products that fit their lifestyle and budget — and Nerdwallet noticed that when it comes to variety, we deliver. Case in point: in addition to both traditional and interest-only HELOCs, Connexus members can also choose from two Home Equity Loan options and nine, unique Mortgage Loan options.

Low Fees & No Pre-Payment Penalties

Nickel-and-diming isn’t our style at Connexus — and that scored us big points with NerdWallet. Our customers love that we never charge penalties for loans that are paid off early and we always strive to keep origination fees lower than our competitors.

Looking Back and Moving Forward

Connexus is proud to be recognized again this year after previously winning the titles of Best Credit Union Checking in 2018, 2019, and 2020, as well as Best Credit Union Mortgage Lender in 2019. In 2021 and beyond, we look forward to innovating and enhancing our products to support the financial health and success of our members.
