Bank is first in local market to offer online mortgage applications.
We’ve always been proud of how Citizens State Bank has been a leader among local banks when it comes to adopting new technology for our customers: we were among the first banks in northern Illinois to offer our customers Internet Banking, Mobile Banking and Online Bill Pay. Now, in another first, we’ve made our mortgage applications available online at our website, here.
This innovation is a win for both Citizens State Bank as well as prospective home buyers in the region. Applicants can now take advantage of the ease of utilizing a fully online mortgage application coupled with the convenience and security of doing business with a local community bank. It’s a development that’s right in line with the bank’s reputation for personal service, fast loan approvals and an understanding of the needs of local customers.
“People want the best of both worlds: they want the convenience afforded by online resources, but they also want to know that, when they have questions, they can talk to someone locally who is sympathetic to their needs, said Fritz Kuhlmeier, President of Citizens State Bank. “With this innovation, we’re saying to prospective home buyers: yes, you can have it both ways.”
