Bernie Marvin

Mortgage Loan Officer | Grand Rapids - East Beltline | NMLS ID: 1227785

I'm a Rockford native who graduated from Rockford High School. I'm married and have four children. I like kayaking, snowboarding, fishing, and doing things with my family. I graduated from Cornerstone University in 2013 where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Business Management.

My servant heart, vast work experience, and education have enabled me to assist my customers with decision making surrounding their largest financial investments, their homes. Customer service is my passion and I work tirelessly to ensure every customer has an exceptional experience. I’m proud to be part of Independent Bank's lending team, largely due to our vast product portfolio. I can help you with a full line of government products (FHA, VA, RD, etc.), vacant land loans, construction loans, refinancing, investment property purchases, and conventional loans. From the first time we speak, you'll understand that I'm a different kind of loan officer. I'll be with you every step of the way from the application process, to closing, and beyond. Call me today to see how I can serve you.

"We had to get an offer together in less than 24 hours and he worked very easily over the phone with my husband and I while my husband was traveling. He explained everything in detail to me (I don't have a lot of house buying experience) and felt very strongly that I knew exactly what I was getting into. I appreciate all his hard work!"
