Minneapolis-based Bell Mortgage began offering home mortgages 130 years ago. Its founder, David C. Bell was also…More a Hennepin County Treasurer. Today, the home-grown company has 22 locations nationwide. Nearly a dozen independent mortgage loan officers work at the Burnsville office.
For 30 years, the company's current owner and CEO, Gary Kirt, and his employees have been a great example of how local companies give back to the community. It serves meals to the homeless and volunteers at the Boys and Girls Club of the Twin Cities, among other places.
