The VCNB Financial Family has some excellent, experienced lenders on staff. These folks have the privilege of working with customers to finance their dreams – their dream car, their dream kitchen, their dream home and a host of other projects that make life good. We talk a lot about what it’s like for the customer to finance a project with us but we don’t always stop and consider what it’s like for the lender.
Today, we’re asking some of our lenders about their favorite part of financing a home construction project! Here’s what they had to say!
“I love the excitement of it all. I love the excitement of the borrower once they know they are approved and the excitement of the borrower when the home is move in ready.” Donna Kopis
Donna works at our Friendly Bremen Banking Center on East Main Street in Lancaster.
“The best thing is seeing a family’s dreams that started on a blueprint come true when they are given the keys to their new home. It’s a great feeling knowing we helped achieve their goal.” Chris Coryea
Chris works at our Canal Banking Center on Prentiss School Drive in Canal Winchester.
“I like to see the excitement of the customers. It’s great helping them with their dream of building their own home and seeing that dream become reality.” Fred Wright
Fred works at our VCNB Loan Production Office on Veterans Drive in Jackson.
“My favorite part of a construction loan is being able to help the customer fulfill a dream of building their very own home. The end result is very rewarding and helps mend the stress that it may have caused in the process. I enjoy seeing the different types of homes people build. Also, the process is very interesting – when it’s in the foundation/ framing stage it looks huge, then when drywall goes on it looks too small, then when it is painted and trimmed it gets bigger and usually just right. It’s a perception thing. As an owner, they may only build one or two homes in a lifetime. As a lender, we build several per year. It is this experience that can help both parties navigate through process and can also be rewarding knowing that you were instrumental in making it happen.” Joe Risch
