Everybody’s been so kind and helpful. It’s just a great experience. Bell is the best bank I’ve had. I don’t plan on changing banks ever again.

How I chose Bell:

My mom banks at Bell, so I opened an account, and I’ve never switched, because I really love it there. Everybody knows you by your first name and is willing to help you right away. The hours are nice, too. Sometimes I work later, so it helps me.

How long I’ve been a customer:

10 years

My favorite banker:

When I go in, the bankers are talkative, family people. Every time I bring my daughter in, they ooh and aah over her.

Nick Erickson has been a great help with our loans and mortgage.

My favorite Bell technology:

I like online banking a lot. It’s very helpful, because with the Bell Bank app, I can check my balance whenever I want.

My Bell products and services:

Business checking, credit card, mortgage, personal checking, personal loans, personal savings

What I tell others about Bell:

I tell other people about Bell all the time. I tell them it’s a great bank – the banking’s free, the hours are great. Everybody there is really nice. I like that everybody takes the time to get to know you when you come in.
