Interview with Sara Koelzer
Home Mortgage Consultant, Wells Fargo
M: Tell me a little bit about yourself? family, hobbies, etc…
S: I have a little girl. Her name is Kennedy, and she is 4 years old. I enjoy tennis, camping, hiking, biking, boating. Really anything outdoors.
M: How long have you lived in Bozeman, and where are you originally from?
S: I moved it Bozeman in 1999, and I am originally from Thompson Falls, MT. Montana born and raised!
M: What is your favorite part about living in this area?
S: I really like the change of seasons here. Summers are amazing, and like no other place. The people here are so friendly, and I really enjoy the small town feel with the bigger city amenities.
M: Tell me a little bit about your background in the industry.
S: I started working in the banking industry in high school where I was a teller. I continued being a teller while attending college at MSU, and I switch to the mortgage side of things out of college.
M: How long have you worked for Wells Fargo?
S: I have been in the industry for 18 years, and have been with Wells Fargo for 10 of those.
M: What is your favorite part of your job?
S: I love helping people. Each client is different, and has a different situation. This job is challenging and constantly changing. I love the challenge of helping each individual client get into a product or service that best fits their needs. I can also do loans anywhere in the country. I think this is a great feature, and it separates Wells Fargo from other locally owned banks.
M: What should a customer look for when selecting a lender?
S: I would say experience, and expertise in the industry. Loan servicing is also important. Wells Fargo services all of our own loans. This means that they will never sell your loan. Once we do a loan it is ours to service until the end. I think this is great for giving the clients better personal service.
M: What do you offer that sets you apart from other mortgage lenders in the area?
S: The fact that we service our own loans! This is a great thing! We also offer a few special products that are not offered by other mortgage lenders. We can do an extended rate lock for up to 18 months. We also offer a first time home buyer conventional loan program that only requires 3% down.
