Meet Tracy Lundy, Mortgage Loan Originator
Last month, we sat down with Tracy to talk about home lending. Tracy is our award-winning mortgage loan originator. She’s a 2022 Minnesota Housing top producer and helps dozens of people purchase their next homes in the Willmar and New London area and across the state of Minnesota.
Tracy’s been a member of the Lake Region Bank team for 12 years and has been in the mortgage industry for 25 years. She loves educating home buyers and guiding them through the financing process. She especially likes working with first-time home buyers.
When collaborating with customers, Tracy encourages everyone to start the financing process early and to be prepared to share your income and work histories during the application process. When she’s not writing home loans, Tracy is involved with the Kandiyohi Area Family YMCA, the local chamber, and the Willmar Public Schools foundation board.

Meet Lisa Groff, Retail Manager/Vice President
Lisa Groff is the Retail Manager/Vice President of consumer services at Lake Region Bank. She joined the team in December 2012. Lisa enjoys helping customers achieve their dreams. For the last 5 years she has been a top producer for Minnesota Housing Finance Agency’s Fix Up fund program. If someone wants to remodel their home, purchase a cabin, or buy hunting land, she can help them find the right loan product and stay within their budget.
Lisa encourages all home buyers to get preapproved to understand how much home they can afford. She also recommends working with an experienced, local lender who understands your local market. Lisa herself is actively involved in the Lake Region Bank community. She volunteers on the Kandiyohi Power Operation Round Up Board and serves as a eucharistic minister at Our Lady of the Lakes Church. When she is not at work, Lisa’s likely downhill mountain skiing or snorkeling in the ocean.

Meet Jeremy Schmidt, Consumer Services Representative
Consumer services representative Jeremy Schmidt has been a member of the Lake Region Bank team for nine years and the home loan team for six years. In 2021, he was featured in the West Central Tribune for his work with the Minnesota Fix Up Fund loans. He enjoys working with customers from start to finish, getting them loans to improve their homes and meet their needs. His goal is to have a happy customer at the end of the process.
Jeremy encourages people who are financing a home improvement project to get more than one quote for their projects and find out how long their contractor thinks it will take to complete the improvements. When not at work, Jeremy volunteers with church activities, Trunk or Treat, and Relay for Life. He also spends time golfing and fishing and participating in his kids’ activities.
