BlackRidgeBANK, a leading community banking organization, is pleased to announce its endorsement agreement with Carson Wentz, former NDSU standout quarterback and second overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Available until December 31, BlackRidgeBANK is giving away NFL licensed autographed Carson Wentz Eagles jerseys to the first 200 clients who close a secondary market first mortgage loan with BlackRidgeMORTGAGE.
“Everyone in the area knows his name,” said John Jessen, BlackRidgeBANK president at the Bismarck, N.D., branch. “Everyone has been cheering on Carson (Wentz) since he was at NDSU. Because of his strong ties to both Bismarck and Fargo, our team looked for opportunities to partner with him on his continued journey.”
Carson Wentz’s father, Doug Wentz, a mortgage loan officer with BlackRidgeBANK in Bismarck, was instrumental in helping the company connect with Carson Wentz for the endorsement agreement. This provided BlackRidgeBANK with an opportunity to stand out to Carson Wentz fans in his home town of Bismarck and in Fargo, the city of Bison pride.
“We are near the lowest point mortgage rates have ever been.”
– Mark Anderson, BlackRidgeBANK president
“It’s an interesting concept because we’ve never done anything like this before,” said Mark Anderson, BlackRidgeBANK president at the Fargo branch. “It’s never happened around here. It’s not the norm for North Dakota based companies to have an endorsement deal of this magnitude with an athlete of Carson’s stature.”
When deciding the time frame to start the offer, Anderson said now couldn’t be a better time to encourage clients to apply for a new mortgage or refinance an existing one.
“We are near the lowest point mortgage rates have ever been,” Anderson said. “We actually had a situation where someone was looking at 2.25 percent rate on a 10-year mortgage. That is almost free money.”
The national average 30-year fixed home mortgage rate in the U.S. fell to 3.36 percent Friday, July 29, matching the record low first reached in December 2012, according to Bankrate.com.
Whether you’re buying your first home, upgrading to a new one, building or interested in refinancing, check your mortgage rate and take advantage of BlackRidgeBANK’s offer. Plus, you never know, while you’re signing your new mortgage, Carson Wentz could be signing your new Eagles jersey.
