Work with the best in the business!

Bob Strandell

Meet Bob

I've been the top mortgage banker at Bell Bank Mortgage for the past 20 years. I love my job. Helping clients with the home financing process is more than a job to me, it's what gives my work purpose.

Over decades, I've simplified the home financing process for thousands of my clients. That's experience you can trust from your preapproval throughout the life of your loan. I treat my clients the way I want to be treated. By offering highly competitive rates, a wide variety of loan programs, a reputation for award-winning service, reliability, and on time closings, I hope to be your trusted mortgage advisor for life!

Going through the mortgage process may seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. I will guide you through the process to ensure that you find the product that is best for your financial situation. Whether you are a first time homebuyer, move up buyer, downsizing, or investing, I have options for you!

I have a long history of helping clients purchase and refinance homes, investment properties and vacation homes. I can help you too! Call me today for professional, competitive financing solutions!
