Green Bay (May 27, 2015) – First Bank Financial Centre (FBFC), a full-service, community bank that has served Wisconsin residents and businesses since 1859, has opened a mortgage lending office in the heart of Green Bay.

Located on Broadway and staffed by a local team with more than 50 combined years of experience assisting Green Bay residents, FBFC is committed to providing solutions that allow people to achieve their dream of home ownership.

“I find very few things as satisfying as helping someone get into a new home,” said Mikel Bushmaker, Regional Sales Manager for FBFC. “That feeling is irreplaceable.”

FBFC is a full-service mortgage lender offering a complete suite of mortgage products, including FHA loans, WHEDA loans, fixed rate and adjustable rate loans, construction loans, jumbo loans and home equity lines of credit. As a true community bank, FBFC also offers low closing costs, affordable down payment options and flexible payment options.

According to Craig Kouba, Vice President of Retail Lending for FBFC, “We couldn’t be more excited to enter the Green Bay market. Our bank’s long tradition of excellent customer service, coupled with the local expertise of this team, is sure to be a winning combination for area home buyers.”

FBFC’s local mortgage lending team includes:

Mikel Bushmaker, Regional Sales Manager: A veteran of the US Navy, Mikel has been assisting home buyers for the last 18 years. He’s very active in the community, and recently joined the Desert Vets of Wisconsin.

Lori Mogan, Mortgage Lender: Lori has spent 35 years in the financial services industry and specializes in mortgage loan financing, including jumbo and construction loans.

Sarah VandenLangenberg, Mortgage Lender: A lifelong resident of Green Bay, Sarah is an expert in each type of mortgage and works closely with her customers to determine a financing solution that works best for them.

Lisa (Schmidt) Pankow, Loan Processor: Lisa brings more than 30 years of mortgage experience in the Green Bay market to the FBFC team.

While the team has had success in helping secure more than $40 million in financing for local home buyers in the last two years, they are excited to join a bank with such a rich heritage and strong support team.

“We are lucky to be so well supported,” said Lisa Pankow. “No matter what the issue, it’s a true team effort to solve it. Green Bay home buyers will enjoy getting to know FBFC better.”
