Farmers State Bank has announced the hire of two new mortgage loan originators, Taylor Wilson and Brad Stokich.
“Taylor’s background and compassion for helping others will not only serve as an asset to Farmers State Bank but will be valuable for our customers looking for residential loan solutions,” said Charles Holland, bank president.
Wilson is a 2005 graduate of Harrisburg High School and a 2009 graduate of Ole Miss in marketing. Wilson returned to Harrisburg and worked as a realtor, tax accounting, and has completed the American Bankers Association Residential Mortgage Lender Certificate.
Stokich has spent more than 12 years in lending and banking, including 10 years spent at Farmers State Bank as a Vice President. His experience also includes: Conventional, Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Veterans Affairs (VA), and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) loans.
In his new role, Stokich will work with individuals and families to find the best financing option to suit their needs.
“It’s not about rushing into the best loan at the moment,” Stokich said. “It’s truly about finding the best mortgage financing for this person or family for years to come.”
Stokich was raised in Harrisburg and graduated from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2004 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Finance. He currently resides in Marion with his wife, Tara.
