Tim Curtis, owner of Waconia Ford, values keeping business local. As a business owner, he knows the importance of building relationships and making customers feel appreciated. When the time came to look for better terms and refinance his building, HomeTown Bank came to mind.
While not a HomeTown Bank customer at the time, Tim met Matt Gassen commercial lender at HomeTown Bank a few times when he stopped by to say hello. The reason Tim extended the opportunity to HomeTown Bank to bid on his refinance project was due to Matt’s friendly, relaxed approach. “Matt was never pushy. He simply reminded me that if I ever had a need, to let him know and he’d see what he could do. One day I had a need, and I gave him a call,” recalls Tim.
Tim approached a couple lenders for competitive bids, but ultimately went with Matt at HomeTown Bank because of two key factors. First, they were local, and it is critical to him that he keep his business local when possible. Second, Matt presented a very simple, one page bid that was easy to read and included what he needed to see in one glance. “Financing can have a lot of moving parts, but it doesn’t need to be complicated. I was able to see the rates and terms on one sheet of paper.” Not only did Matt keep things as simple as possible, but Tim says he “likes that Matt is on time, and always makes him feel as though earning and keeping his business is important.”
