Stampfli Mortgage is excited to announce our newest addition to the team, meet Ben Krug, Mortgage Loan Processor. Ben will be working closely with our mortgage advisors, customers and lenders to ensure a smooth home loan experience and closing. His role is crucial to keeping up with the ever changing demands of the industry. He’s busy learning the intricate details surrounding Wisconsin FHA, VA and USDA home loans as well as familiarizing himself with the outstanding lenders we work with. Although his recent experience has been with banker lending, Ben is quickly learning the advantages of working for a mortgage broker. With how many options we can offer our home buyers and home owners, we know that it’s a lot to learn. Thankfully Ben is a fast learner and has been doing a fantastic job of learning about these options. His experience, lending knowledge and ability to learn as he goes will be key as Stampfli Mortgage continues to grow.
Ben comes to us with many years of customer service expertise and a background in lending and finance. His career path has come full-circle now as he joins our family-owned company. Ben’s very first job was working for his stepfather’s family-owned hardware store. Coming from a small town, he felt it was a great opportunity to become familiar with the community. Working at a young age, he learned the value of hard work and he learned to appreciate the feeling of earning a dollar. Ben’s happy to be back at a family company and is eager to be part of the exciting new adventure at Stampfli Mortgage.
Being the new Mortgage Loan Processor at Stampfli Mortgage isn’t the only excitement in Ben’s life, though; he and his beautiful wife, Ashley, are expecting their first child. Last April, Ben and Ashley were married on the tropical island of the Dominican Republic. He says, “she helped mold me into the person I am today.” Technically, this won’t be their first baby, as they already have two fur-babies, Gucci and Prada.
When the Krug’s aren’t working, they like to spend time with family and friends. They host gatherings at home so Ben can show of his culinary talents. Over the years, being creative in the kitchen has become very rewarding. “My favorite dish to make is lasagna because the options are endless with the flavors you can create.” When he’s not in the kitchen, you might find him cheering on his favorite sporting team or making some home improvements. Being a home owner himself, Ben can relate to some of the questions and concerns of new home-buyers. Just another reason why he will be such a great asset to Stampfli Mortgage.
