Hello, my name is Rachel and I have been working at FNBML for over 4 years now as a Loan Assistant and I love it here. I didn’t originally envision myself working at a bank before but after seeing a job posting I figured I would give it a try and I am so glad I did! My coworkers are some of the most genuine and caring people you could meet and you can see it. You can see it in the friendly smiles and in the genuine effort to look out for the best interests of our customers and each other.
As a Loan Assistant, I work behind the scenes in the loan process handling the preparation of a variety of loan types including our consumer loans (vehicles, atvs, boats, airplanes, etc.) and real estate loans (purchases, refinance, HELOCs, construction, etc.) If you are thinking about a loan, I encourage you to contact a Loan Officer to inquire about the steps and documents needed to make the loan process go as smoothly as possible. Particularly for real estate loans, it is important to plan ahead! The longest process in a real estate loan is waiting for the appraisal to come in. We are already seeing our area appraisers getting very busy this year so you can expect an appraisal to take between 3-4 weeks or sometimes longer to come back to us. A little about myself- I was born and raised in Moose Lake and am proud to call it my hometown. I initially moved away for college and spent some time out of the area but then returned to raise my son in the same caring community that I grew up in. In my free time, I really love to travel and try to do at least one big trip a year and many smaller day trips around the area and up the North Shore. I do feel fortunate to find myself belonging to this bank family and this community.
