Mortgage Banking Team

Our Mortgage Banking Officers are your neighbors

We live and work in the communities we serve—that means our mortgage banking officers have a deep understanding of what matters to Vermonters. Things like living within your means and not overextending yourself, having solid information before making big financial decisions, and being respectful of people’s time. These principles inform all our lending relationships. Our team is accessible and ready to make the process fit with your busy schedule.

Online or in-person, applying is easy. To apply online, select a Mortgage Banking Officer in your area from the list below, click Apply Online, then get started by selecting a loan type and creating an account. To apply in-person, please visit your local branch.
