Importance of Building a Relationship with your Loan Officer

Do Your Loan Officers Really Know You? Here’s Why They Should

Banking / November 15, 2020

Applying for a loan may cause stress and even a little fear, but fortunately, it doesn’t have to! Our team at Cornerstone Bank has found that our personal connection with each customer allows us to ease the loan application and approval process.

You may not have thought about it at first, but you shouldn’t ignore the importance of building a relationship with your loan officer. Keep reading to learn more. 

You become more than a number

When your loan officer values you as a person rather than a credit score number, you gain the added benefit of empathy. For example, one of the many benefits of banking locally is the ability to gauge loan acceptance on a person-by-person basis. Rather than simply looking at numbers, your lender can understand your unique circumstances. That means even if a large bank denies your loan, you may have another opportunity at a smaller bank like Cornerstone.

Whether you are making huge home renovations or starting your first business, we have the tools necessary to guide you along the way.
