Bell Bank Mortgage will be expanding into Wisconsin! We will welcome a group of new mortgage team members headquartered in Brookfield, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee, on Oct. 1.
Assured Mortgage, in business for over 30 years with 4 offices around the Milwaukee market, will bring the strength and experience of its nearly 30-person lending team to Bell Bank and our mortgage division.
Bell Bank president and CEO Michael Solberg made the announcement along with Tony Weick (pictured), president of Bell Bank Mortgage.
“We are thrilled to join forces with a highly-respected and talented team of professionals at Assured Mortgage,” Tony adds. “The Milwaukee market is also an attractive strategic fit for our regional growth, but more importantly, our shared culture and philosophy of providing exceptional integrity-driven service makes this venture a great fit for both companies.”
Assured Mortgage will remain in business while in-process loans are completed, and its team will then officially join the Bell family in October. The branch will maintain its management team, with Jeff Laitsch as the Wisconsin area manager for Bell Bank Mortgage and Donna Gagnon as the Wisconsin area operations manager.
“This is a great fit for the Assured Mortgage and Bell Bank Mortgage teams,” comments Jeff. “We are all about doing what’s best for our customers, and becoming part of the Bell family will allow us to offer even more loan options to fit what our customers are looking for. Being a part of a growing company, and a top workplace, will be an exciting opportunity for our team.”
