Mark and Annette Stansbery


“United Bank of Iowa gave us a chance that other banks would not.”

When visiting with Mark and Annette Stansbery, of Stansbery Customs in rural Breda, they shared the following about their experience with UBI, “Our first business with United Bank of Iowa was working with Lisa Witten for a home loan and that went really smooth. When Lisa learned we were looking to expand our custom metal business, she introduced us to Jean Burns who does commercial lending. After being turned down by other banks, Jean really listened to our plans, toured the shop we were renting and our new acreage where we hoped to relocate our business. Our communication through email was great and she always got back to us promptly. She reviewed the necessary expenses for concrete, insulation, electrical work, and other materials needed to update the shop. She made it happen! We combined existing business loans with the additional money we needed and basically made all our plans a reality.”

When we asked Mark and Annette if they would recommend United Bank of Iowa to their friends, they were quick to answer, “We have! We’ve told others to talk to Lisa or Jean and they will listen; they will help you.” During our tour of their newly updated shop, we were totally impressed with the custom metal pieces they are creating! United Bank of Iowa wishes Mark and Annette the very best on their new business venture.
