Whether first-time homebuyers, new construction, vacation home buyers, or experienced investors, I’m committed to delivering an exceptional experience at every stage of the home financing process,” Abernethy said in a news release from the Rome–based credit union. “I will help members turn their homeownership dreams into reality.”
