LIMA, OH—Superior Credit Union, Inc., announced today that its subsidiary, Superior Financial Solutions, LLC, has acquired Yocum Realty, a real estate brokerage firm in Lima, Ohio. The acquisition adds to Superior’s current home and business-related offerings of mortgage origination, title services, and property and casualty insurance.

"Yocum Realty has a strong presence and great reputation in West Central Ohio," stated Phil Buell, President and CEO of Superior Credit Union. "We believe this will be a true benefit to our current and new members as we provide them convenient access to real estate brokerage services. As West Central Ohio’s mortgage leader, offering our members brokerage services will further enhance the buying and selling experience. We are excited to have Tim Stanford and his team join Superior."

Yocum Realty was founded in 1961 by R.L. Yocum. Tim Stanford has owned the firm since 2002, when he purchased it from his father-in-law, Gene Nameche. Today, the firm has 26 agents serving West Central Ohio. Stanford will continue in his current role and has been named Vice President of Real Estate Services for Superior Financial Solutions. The agency will also maintain its office at 421 S. Cable in Lima.

"I have worked with Superior for years and always felt they shared Yocum’s commitment to outstanding service," said Stanford. “When we started discussing this opportunity with Superior, they really had a vision of how we could fit into the bigger Superior picture and provide even more value to buyers and sellers. We are thrilled to become a part of the Superior team. The news has created a lot of enthusiasm among our agents.”

"Several credit unions nationally have incorporated this business model with great success," said Kurt Neeper, Senior Vice President of Superior Financial Solutions. “With real estate, mortgage, title, and insurance services, we can now serve a buyer from beginning to end and dramatically simplify the real estate process.”
