Serving Our Communities For More Than 50 Years

Since 1997, Bell Mortgage has made home ownership a reality for thousands of happy families in the Phoenix area. We’d love the opportunity to serve you.

A Long History of Serving Individuals and Families

Our roots are deep. In 1880, we were founded in Minneapolis, Minnesota, by early city leader David C. Bell. We added locations throughout the Twin Cities and later expanded into the Phoenix area. Our company remains the oldest and most trusted mortgage provider in Minnesota, along with an established presence here in Arizona.

In 2011, Bell Mortgage became a part of what was then State Bank & Trust. the largest independent bank in the Midwest. One year later, the entire company rebranded as Bell State Bank & Trust, taking the more unique Bell name as a known and respected regional brand. In 2016 the company simplified its name to Bell Bank, while the Arizona mortgage division remains known as Bell Mortgage.

Independent Family Ownership

As one of the country’s largest privately owned banks, Bell embraces a simple yet powerful commitment to our employees and customers.

Our core values of family, unequaled service and giving back are at the heart of what we do. Employees and customers alike are treated like family, and Bell is recognized as a top place to work and to do business. We're a place where people matter, and results matter. That's the Bell difference.

Supporting Our Neighbors and Communities

As part of our Pay It Forward tradition, Bell employees carefully consider the many needs in our communities and our world.

Each year, every full-time employee receives $1,000 and every part-time employee $500 to give as they choose to individuals, families or organizations in need. To date, Pay It Forward has empowered more than $12 million in giving.

Together, we can change the world one good deed at a time. Learn more about the program and watch giving stories on our Pay It Forward website.
