Bell Mortgage is moving and expanding its mortgage offices to a larger office space on the second floor of its current location at  4435 E. Chandler Blvd. Suite 201 in Phoenix.

“Moving into this space in our current building gives our expanding mortgage operations more room,” said Tony Weick, president of Bell Mortgage.  “We’re pleased to accommodate our growth while remaining in a location that is familiar and convenient for our customers.”

Providing mortgages in the Phoenix area for nearly 20 years, Bell has changed with the community. “Phoenix is a well-established market that continues to change and develop at a fast pace. Bell Mortgage is excited to be part of the growth and we will continue to expand to meet the needs of our clients and the community,” Weick said.

Bell Mortgage, which opened its Phoenix office in 1997, has thousands of family mortgages to its name. In 2011, Bell Mortgage became a part of Fargo, N.D.-based State Bank & Trust, and in 2012, the company rebranded as Bell State Bank & Trust – taking on the Bell name to give a more unique identity to what is now one of the nation’s largest independently owned banks.

Bell State Bank & Trust has more than 1,000 employees and assets totaling more than $3.5 billion. The company also has more than $4.5 billion in assets under management through its wealth management division.
