OTTAWA – Deborah Ingold, a banker highly respected for her extensive residential lending knowledge, professionalism and personal service, has joined Ottawa Savings Bank as a mortgage loan originator.
Ingold’s role will be to help Ottawa Savings enhance both its connections with the local housing market – home sellers, buyers and Realtors – and the scope of its loan options as housing activity begins to increase, according to a news release from the bank.
Ingold’s housing-focused experience “will help ensure that we have the mix of mortgage loan programs that will best serve the community,” Ottawa Savings Bank President and CEO Jon Kranov said in the release.
“We think there are opportunities in the local housing markets and beyond, ” he continued.
In addition to traditional, conventional mortgage loans, Kranov said Ingold understands how to use such lending tools as affordable housing grants, rural development loans, and FHA-VA loan programs to help home buyers finance their home purchases.
Ingold also has thorough knowledge of construction lending, home equity loans and lines of credit and refinancing.
Prior to joining Ottawa Savings, Ingold was a senior real estate lender at Mazon State Bank, where she was responsible for creating a mortgage banking program.
