“I see faces from Bell everywhere I go,” she says. “They know our business, and they’re out there in the community. We’re so comfortable at Bell.”

How I chose Bell:

We were looking to buy a house, and my husband was frustrated with another bank. It was such a relief to talk to Barry Heinen and get the process rolling right away. He was so quick to respond. We switched everything, and it was time to change!

How long I’ve been a customer:

2 years

My favorite banker:

Everyone! When you walk in the door, it feels like you’re visiting a bunch of friends. They know your name, and I feel so welcome. We’ve worked with Linda Knutson, Molly Carter, Barry Heinen, Missy Hexum and all of the tellers. Everyone is so pleasant.

My favorite Bell Bank cookie:

My 15-year-old daughter (who’s also a Bell customer) likes the chocolate chip, and my husband likes the double chocolate chip. I try to avoid them!

My Bell products and services:

Business checking, business savings, financial planning, mortgage, online banking, personal checking, vehicle loan

What I tell others about Bell:

They’re so friendly and easy to work with. I recommend Bell to anyone.
