As the owners of Crafts Direct, we feel very fortunate to have partnered with BankVista, a locally owned independent bank. As the economic times became more difficult the last few years, BankVista has helped us to continue to grow our business. BankVista was very supportive in providing Crafts Direct with financial solutions that keeps our business fun, exciting, and innovative for our employees and customers.

We worked with one other company to get a mortgage and everything was great until we wanted to set up closing. They kept coming up with all these items that they needed but they all ready had. I got tired of the run around...and...what we should do. He told us to call BankVista so we did. They asked for some information so we brought it all over to them. They called us back within two hours and they had our closing set up and ready to go. We never thought it could happen so fast and so easy after what we had already gone through. I would recommend BankVista to anyone that is looking for a bank for any reason. Billy and I are very happy with our house. We love it. Thank you, BankVista!

Working with BankVista was a great experience for us. We were first time home buyers and expected it to be a difficult process, but BankVista was very helpful in communicating with us through the process and worked quickly to get our loan ready for closing. The experience that we got working with BankVista is unmatched by larger, corporate companies. It was truly a pleasure to do business with them and we look forward to doing business with them again in the future.

BankVista has supported my business from the beginning by financing the purchase of my practice and, most recently, providing an SBA loan to acquire equipment and supplies for my new, state of the art facility. They treat me like I treat my patients, with honesty, integrity, and your best interest at heart.
When looking for my practice loan, I compared BankVista to ten other banks in the area and not only did they give me the best interest rate and lowest fees, but they truly had the best customer service. I recommend Stefan Freeman, Dan Nygaard, and BankVista to everyone I know for their banking needs.
Thanks again for everything.

During the past 40 plus years in business we have worked with several financial institutions for a variety of needs or projects. About four years ago I was approached by BankVista to see how they might be able to help with our financial needs…and I'm sure glad they did. All the folks at BankVista have been very friendly, easy to work with and have put together a complete banking package that has worked very well. Stefan Freeman, Dan Nygaard and staff have been instrumental in helping me with re-financing of existing mortgages and assembled a much more attractive operating line saving me thousands of dollars in interest alone.
I recently stopped to see Stefan Freeman with a building proposal and was received with positive ideas and solutions for financing package including a combination SBA and bank loan. Dan Nygaard ran with the ball and put together a financing package that fit well.
We are looking forward to moving into our new facility this fall and continuing long term banking relationship with BankVista.

In addition to price, we decided on BankVista for two reasons. The first reason was Tom. Not only did he guide us through the process with efficiency and patience, but Tom was one of the nicest, most courteous people you could meet. We always felt that Tom was looking out for our best interests. The other reason we chose BankVista was because it is a local, community bank. All of Bank Vista's efforts are in support of communities in Central Minnesota. We really believe in supporting local businesses when we can. Our initial experience was very positive. Tom was always nice and helpful, answering all of our questions clearly. We had such a good experience and liked the people at the bank that when we decided to refinance in June 2010, we didn't even look at other banks, we came straight to BankVista. Again, we we're very pleased by the results of the refinancing process. Even though we switched from a guaranteed VA loan to a traditional loan, Tom guided us through the process with ease, giving us all the options as we went along.
