My favorite branch:
I’ve followed Brenda Messerschmidt to the Moorhead branch, but I also bank at the Fargo Veterans Boulevard location.
My go-to bankers:
Moorhead branch manager Brenda Messerschmidt, Gina Schmidt (personal banking officer) at the Moorhead branch and Alesha Greseth (teller supervisor) at the Veterans Boulevard branch, but I think I could make friends with any of them, really. It’s just their personalities, their demeanor; they’re very personable, friendly. They take the time to make you feel like you’re at the right place at the right time. They really do feel like more than somebody working at a bank when you go in there.
My Bell products and services:
Checking account, savings account, home equity line of credit, mortgage
There was a sense of comfort and peace when we got our mortgage with Bell.
My favorite Bell features:
Online and mobile banking and alerts, so when I ask my husband to transfer money, I know he did it because I get the reminder. Mobile check deposit is a quick and easy feature.
What I tell others about Bell:
I referred my twin sister to Bell and recommended Bell when she was looking for a car loan. I just feel like Bell gets it done, and you’re not just a name in a system with them.
What it means to bank at a locally owned community bank:
It means everything. They’re not only focusing on us as individuals, they’re looking at the community as a whole, to bring us together. At this time in our world, we need that, and it can start with something as simple as your bank.
