Scott Falagan – VP/ Mortgage Lender Manager - Victor
"I am proud to be a representative of the Farmers State Bank team. In my 15 years of banking experience, I have never been surrounded by such a knowledgeable, caring and devoted team. We have proudly brought Farmers State Bank to the ranks of the number 1 lender in our primary market area. Followed by customer ratings second to none. In addition to this marvelous team, having the ability to underwrite on a local level has really separated us from our competitors. Fast, timely, and accountable decision making, brings reciprocity to our business. I personally am a father to 2 wonderful children and husband to a beautiful wife. We love spending time in the outdoors and are dearly grateful every day to live in such a wonderful place as Montana. Consider Farmers State Bank for one of the largest investments you will make. Where there are no fancy marketing gimmicks, just reliable, consistent, and solid service. You can sit down with someone on the first day of your application and the day you make your final payment. We look forward to meeting you."
Casey Hornaday – Mortgage Lender - Lolo and Florence
"My name is Casey Hornaday, and I have lived in Montana most of my life. I take tremendous pride in this wonderful state, trying each day to make a positive footprint. I currently live in the Bitterroot valley with my wife and our two children. As a family we enjoy rafting, fly-fishing, and exploring the mountain ranges we consider our back yard. A mortgage loan is one of the most significant financial endeavors most of us will undertake. Whether it’s your first or a subsequent mortgage, helping you navigate smoothly through the process is my first priority. My goal is to always paint a clear picture of what to expect and communicate clearly and promptly when problem-solving is required. With more than 20 years locally in the mortgage industry as both a loan officer and underwriter, I have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the loan process."
Kim Kendrick – Mortgage Lender - Missoula
"My name is Kim Kendrick, and I have been with Farmers State Bank since 2011. I started in the lending world in 1996 and have been in Customer Service, in one aspect or another, since my very first job ~ Not going to date that one! I feel the two go hand in hand. A house is the largest purchase you will be making at this point in time. It matters to me, to make this process as stress free as possible. I gather information and documentation upfront so you can sit back and relax. Farmers is unique in that we are the underwrites and our processors are local. I truly love what I do.
I am an Alumni of the University of Montana and have always loved Missoula. My husband and I chose to raise our 2 beautiful children here. We happily made our home here, and I would love to help you do the same.
Whether this your first house or tenth, I would love the opportunity to help you buy your home in Missoula."
Nicole Dix – Mortgage Lender - Missoula
“My name is Nicole Dix, and I love to call Montana home. My husband and I, along with our two children, moved to Montana 4 years ago from Southern California. We live in Missoula, however, I love getting out of the bank to meet with clients. Whether in Missoula County or Ravalli County, I’m always more than happy to hop in the car! During our free time, my family loves to get outdoors and travel. Montana is such a beautiful place; it’s no wonder it’s called “The Last Best Place.” I have over 16 years of experience in the industry, from mortgage lending to real estate investing. I have spent my entire career helping clients with their financing needs. There is no "ONE SIZE FITS ALL" when it comes to mortgage loans. I take great pride in putting my client's needs first and making the mortgage process smooth. Being able to underwrite loans, along with our fabulous In-House Lending options, allows me to make sure I am doing what is best for my clients. I would be happy to sit down with you and discuss your personal mortgage lending options together.”
