Meet Eric Bloomstrand
Eric has lived his entire life in Minnesota. He is married with 3 children. He graduated from Mankato State University in June of 1991 and began his career in the mortgage world shortly after that. For the better part of the past 17 years, he has worked for Bell Bank Mortgage as a Senior Loan Officer achieving the President Club designation based on closed loan volume each and every year. Listening to your needs and concerns is the foundation of our business. Earning your Trust and preparing advice with Integrity is something that I strive for each and every day. With the many changes that this industry continues to face, I continue to learn and give advice based on what is in your best interest. My goal to create such a strong relationship with each and every client that you feel compelled to refer the people you genuinely care about, not to help me, but because you want them to be taken care of the same way I took care of you. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting you soon!
Our process is smooth and simple from start to finish:
- Talk with me. I will work with you to help you determine your financing options and answer all your questions.
- Apply Online. Complete your mortgage application at your convenience through our online application.
- Work together through final approval. From the time your application is received, I work with you to ensure you move through the process checkpoints to final approval.
- Closing on your loan. Prior to loan closing, I will review the Closing Disclosure, funds needed and documentation to bring to close with you. On closing day the final documents are signed at the title company and you receive the keys to your new home!

Eric has been a fantastic business decision for my team! I was tired of the hassles of working with the in-house lender in regards to closings being extended, excuses being made, and a lack of performance.
It has really been a breath of fresh air working with Eric from Bell Mortgage. There are never any hiccups that he causes and the transaction seems to move along flawlessly! Every time I check on the transaction, all the T's have been crossed and I have nothing to worry about!
The best words to summarize your service were PROFESSIONAL, ETHICAL, RESPECTFUL and HONEST. You took into account our needs and walked with us during each step until the day of closing, and even after with all my questions. I have already referred your name to colleagues and will continue to do so. Now I am looking forward to work with you the refinance of our mortgage when the market gets better.
Thanks again for making us feel valued and respected!

I appreciate how quickly (and painlessly) you were able to get everything done to make my home purchase possible. Thanks so much for working so diligently to make this dream come true!
Thank you again!
Eric is the only loan officer I trust when it comes to working with my clients and actually getting them fully approved for their loan. When he says we are good to go, I can sleep at night knowing that there will be no surprises at closing.
Closing went great... thank you so much for all your help and for answering all my questions (I know I had a lot :D).

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.
