Congratulations to Josh and his family. We recently asked Josh a few questions about his recent move and his experience with Luana Savings Bank:

Tell us about your recent move back to Ossian and your roots in the community.
I was born and raised in Calmar and graduated from South Winneshiek. I participated in football, basketball, track and baseball for the Warriors. I also spent time coaching little league and umpiring baseball games during the summers. I moved back home to be close to family and friends and get connected within the smaller community/schools.

Explain your experience (work history) with Luana Savings Bank.
I started with Luana Savings Bank as a loan processor in September 2012 for the Clive branch and gained experience within the loan department. I used those skills to transition into a Residential Loan Officer in October of 2014. I became a Sr. Residential Loan Officer in 2018. I spent around 9.5 years in the Clive branch/Des Moines market. I have worked with many customers with building their dream home, buying a home that is just right for them or taking advantage of one of the best products in the marketplace with Luana Savings Bank $0 cost refinances and purchases.

What kind of support do you receive from Luana Savings Bank?
Luana Savings Bank has a great office atmosphere, customer driven and great support staff that will help in anyway needed to get customers from beginning to end in getting into their dream home.

Can you tell us about the mortgage products that Luana Savings Bank offers?
Luana Savings Bank offers a wide range of mortgage and loan products including fixed rate products, adjustable loans, first-time home buyer loans, extended rate lock products, HELOCs, and offers ways to avoid Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). Luana Savings Bank will also service your loans here locally with great customer service and your loans will not be sold off to another financial institution.

Are you looking forward to serving Ossian and the surrounding communities? Why?
Yes, I’m looking forward to using my knowledge and experience I gained while working in the Clive branch/Des Moines market to help out the Ossian, Calmar, Decorah and surrounding areas to help families in their home mortgage financing needs. I am also looking forward to getting back in the community I grew up in to help make it a great place to live and work.
