Kathy & Kent Spriggs

Fargo, N.D.

Bell believed in us and gave us a chance. Richard Solberg and his staff were so wonderful. We just really feel like we were blessed in being given that chance.

How we chose Bell:

When we were in our twenties, an opportunity came up to purchase an endodontics practice in Fargo. We already had a lot of school loans, but Kent’s dad knew Bell board chairman Richard Solberg’s father and suggested we ask Bell for a loan.

We got the loan, bought the business and purchased a house within six months. We still have the business, Dr. Kent Spriggs Endodontics, and we have been with Bell ever since.

How long we’ve been customers:

27 years

Our favorite bankers:

Bell Bank president Michael Solberg, Paul Benson (private banking), Sheila Carter (lead teller), and Paul Fleming (Bell Investments wealth advisor). They’re very friendly, professional and very helpful in answering our questions. They get back to us right away if we call. That keeps us coming back.
