Our Story

First Chicago Mortgage Services (FCMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Chicago Patrolmen’s Federal Credit Union (CPFCU), is one of Chicago’s leading mortgage specialists offering competitive pricing, specialized products, and outstanding customer service.

Based on our affiliation with CPFCU over the past 15 years, FCMS has carved a niche working with First Responders, Active Reservists and Veterans, as well as Municipal Employees.

Clearly understanding the needs, demands and sacrifices associated with these areas of vocation, FCMS has honed our skills in developing programs custom designed to fit the needs of our clients and their families. Among our myriad of programs are Purchase Money Transactions; Refinances; Conventional and Jumbo Loans; and FHA and VA Transactions. We also offer Complimentary Same Day Pre- Approvals for First-Time Home Buyers.

FCMS is a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO), which allows us to work with non-credit union members. While we are a stand-alone organization, we work hand-in-hand with CPFCU, one of the country’s leading financial institutions with assets in excess of $378 million.
