I really LOVE my townhouse! It is so peaceful here. I am having a lot of fun buying furniture, decorating, etc. Thank you again for everything that you did to get me into my home so quickly!!! I have told many people about how amazing you are!
Cheryl was an excellent broker for my husband and me when we sold and bought our new home. I do not know anyone whom worked harder to get our closings on the SAME DAY! She was responsive, knowledgeable, and most of all very kind. We would highly recommend Cheryl Stuntebeck!

As a first time home buyer in my late 20s moving from another state, Cheryl made the loan process very easy! Cheryl never took more than a couple hours to get back to me if I contacted her. She took the time to educate me about mortgage rates as well as all the different types of closing costs. Her closing cost estimate was very accurate and the timing of everything was perfect. I would highly recommend Cheryl!
This was my first home buying experience, and Cheryl made it very easy by walking me through each and every step. She was easy to get a hold of, especially when it counted! I called her cell phone on a Saturday afternoon, and she was easy to get ahold of, and she was able to send an approval letter to y realtor immediately so I could write an offer on the house I bought! Wonderful working with her, look forward to working with her again in the future, thanks Cheryl!
I had nothing but a positive experience! I’ve already recommended Cheryl’s services to friends, will continue to do so, and highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a mortgage broker that is definitely at the top of her game! The whole mortgage thing was very foreign to e – she made it easy, answered all of my questions, and handled every little issue that arose to enable my closing to go off without the slightest hitch!
I’ve refinanced twice in the past 4 years through Cheryl. Each time she has taken the time to find the loan that fits the situation I was in at the time. I had no idea there were so many loan options available. She answered all my questions within minutes of me emailing her (email was my communication of choice at the time). My wife and I could not have been happier!
Ryan and Whitney
Thank you for your email, and thank YOU for referring Lauren to us. Sorry for the delay, we have both been on the go all day! We have so enjoyed working with you more and more these past couple of months, and we look forward to continuing that relationship with you. We have been so happy with your service and expertise, and we know any clients we send your way are in good hands - and we will continue to recommend you to them.

Cheryl was a very knowledgeable lender. From the first meeting for pre-approval she very friendly and very understood with the entire question that I had as a first time home buyer. She promptly answered all of my emails and returned all of my calls the same day throughout the entire process. The entire time, she made sure to inform me of all things a first time homebuyer doesn't even know to ask about. Even after the closing was complete and done, she still checked in a few times to make sure that it all went as planned and there were no issues with the home she was part of purchasing process for. It is nice to still get random surprises and cards from her in the mail wishing all is well. I have already recommended Cheryl for people in need of a lender and will continue to do so in the future because of her amazingly thorough and professional approach to home mortgage lending.
Thank you so much for your help throughout our home purchase. You were extremely quick to respond, and kept things simple when we had questions. You were involved when we needed you, and not involved when we didn't. You showed a lot of balance in walking that fine line. Thanks again, and I hope you had a great weekend.
May I just take this opportunity to once again, say you are the BEST! I LOVE when my clients work with you. I never have to worry about how things are coming along. You are ALWAYS on your "A" game. Feel free to share this with anyone/anywhere you want to. I couldn't be happier with your level of service to my clients.
Matt & I had a meeting today and we were reviewing all of our files. We were looking through John & Lydie Ly's and had a conversation about how awesome it has been to work with you and what a great job you have done throughout the Ly's purchase! It has taken a long time and everyone has been so wonderful to work with & quick to communicate about everything.
We appreciate it & thank you very much!

We cannot thank you enough! This has been a smooth and stress free process because of you. Thank you for putting up with our many questions and concerns. We are very excited to move into our very own home!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Jenaya & Luke
My family and I appreciate your help so much and we could not be happier. You, Laura, and Casey all went above and beyond for me and I can't thank you enough for taking the time that you did to ensure that my family would not become homeless. We will never forget the genuine care and hard work you put into getting us into our new home and overcoming the difficulty of dealing with our previous lender. I will recommend your services to anyone I know in the future.
Thanks again for all your help with assisting me with buying my first home!
I want to say thanks for your dedicated service during my loan process. I have recommended you to some of my friends interested in buying homes. I would not refer them to anyone else. I want my loved ones to get the best experience and service just like I did.
Thank you for the nice mailing. Hope all is going well with you. I try to send folks to you whenever I can as I regard your competence and efficiency so high.
I have worked with many mortgage professionals over the years, and Cheryl is the most knowledgeable about the industry: financing options, rules and regulations."
"Cheryl is so professional. Whether it is a first-time homebuyer or an upper-bracket buyer, Cheryl treats each as if they were her most important client."
"Cheryl takes care of everything. When she works with my clients, they understand how their loan is going to work, what their payment will be, what they need to do before closing. Everything is always smooth and hassle-free."
Thank you so much for being my go-to person for closing my FHA mortgage loan. You were phenomenal to work with. Thanks so much for taking great care of my file and the entire process of obtaining a loan and closing it. We are in our dream house!
You have an excellent staff, and I will always be grateful for you going above and beyond for me by answering my questions late at night and keeping me on track. It was true discipline that was accomplished by your encouragement.
Thanks again, Cheryl. I know we will cross paths again!
Thank you so much for all your help. You went out of your way to make sure we understood exactly how everything would work, and we truly appreciate all the time you took with us. We have told all our friends about you!
Justin and I just wanted to send you a thank-you email for all of your help. You made this such an easy process. Going into buying this house, we were scared, and all we could see was dollar signs! You definitely held our hands through this whole process and really helped us to better understand the whole buying process. We feel with you, we were able to find the best loan opportunity out there possible, and by doing so, we are now paying less for a house than we did for our tiny 2-bedroom townhome rent. Thank you soooo much, Cheryl!
Thank you so much for helping me buy my first home! You made the experience go so smoothly. Thanks for answering all my questions; I know I had a lot! We love our new home!
Cheryl helped me get my dream home, she is very good at what she does. I recommended going with her for a loan. I had to move fast because I had a dead line to beat. So, I went to look at seven townhouse on Wednesday and by Thursday we put an offer in and by Friday we got the loan approved in and locked before the new law affected by Monday. The new law was that the date off the foreclosure started 3 1/2 yrs instead of three year that why I had to get my loan in before Monday or I would have to wait 6 more month to approve for a loan!! I'm so thankful that I went with her for the loan and thank you Cheryl Stuntebeck for making my dream come true!!

The History of Bell Bank Mortgage
In 2011, Minneapolis-based Bell Mortgage became a part of what was then State Bank & Trust, in a history-making venture for both companies. Bell Mortgage has literally been a part of Minnesota since the state’s infancy. The oldest and largest independent mortgage banking company in Minnesota, it was founded in 1880 by early Minneapolis leader David C. Bell. Since then, Bell Bank Mortgage has added locations throughout the Twin Cities and in Phoenix, developed its own proprietary technology for processing and underwriting, and has thousands of family mortgages to its name.
In 2012, State Bank & Trust rebranded as Bell State Bank & Trust, taking on the Bell name to give a more unique identity to a known and respected regional brand. Bell State Bank & Trust shortened its name to Bell Bank in August of 2016, with the mortgage division becoming Bell Bank Mortgage to simplify the brand while retaining the familiar “trees” logo.
