Three Bremer Bank team members named Top Producing Loan Officers by Minnesota Housing


Three Bremer Bank loan officers have been recognized as Top Producing Loan Officers by Minnesota Housing for their high loan production volume in 2022. The Bremer staff recognized include Adam Macho, in Mankato (NMLS 640039); Kristy Morris Leas, in Crookston/Warren (NMLS 757106); and Nancy Healy, in Roseville (NMLS 326816).

Minnesota Housing works with local loan officers like those at Bremer to provide affordable homebuyer loans to support and strengthen state homeownership. In 2022, participating lenders provided nearly 5,600 home mortgage loans for almost $1.3 billion statewide. Creating equitable access to housing is one of Bremer’s pillars of focus.

“Bremer’s closely held purpose is to cultivate thriving communities, and homeownership is one of the most crucial underpinnings to that effort,” said Jeanne Crain, Bremer President and CEO. “We are proud of and applaud these bankers for exemplifying Bremer’s purpose as we continue to invest in programs and strategies that support homeownership throughout the communities we serve.”

The Minnesota Housing Top Producing Loan Officer program has recognized loan officers with the highest volume of Minnesota Housing program loans for more than a decade. In addition to homebuyer loans, the agency also offers home improvement loans through participating lenders and finances single-family and multifamily housing across the state.

“We applaud these Top Producing Loan Officers for their successful efforts to help a record number of Minnesota Families realize the dream of homeownership,” said Minnesota Housing Commissioner Jennifer Leimaile Ho.
