House-Hunting? Choose a local lender who supports West Bend | By Karen Stensrud

West Bend, WI – With home selection in short supply, it’s important to choose a mortgage lender, and get pre-approved for a home loan first before you go house hunting. A pre-approval from a reputable lender shows sellers and real estate agents you’re serious and know what you can afford. It also allows you to put in an offer comfortably – so you don’t miss out on a potential opportunity to buy the home you always wanted.

If you’re also interested in working with a mortgage lender who can deliver on-time closings, with no surprises, you should consider Bell Bank Mortgage, located in West Bend, Wis.

The experienced lenders at Bell Bank are familiar with Washington County’s neighborhoods and business community and are backed by the financial strength of one of the nation’s largest independent, family-owned banks in Bell Bank.

It’s that private ownership that has led to Bell’s unique Pay It Forward initiative, where every full-time employee receives $1,000 to give as they choose to individuals, families and organizations in need.

Since 2008, Pay It Forward has empowered more than $18 million in giving across the company. Bell Bank Mortgage also supports several area charities in a major way. For example, several of our lenders support the Ronald McDonald House by making a donation with each mortgage closed – and the Bell team actively volunteers with Milwaukee area realtors, supporting local children’s charities.
