About Joel

Assistant Vice President, Community and Business Development, and Senior Mortgage Banker in Birmingham, Alabama

 

What is Community Development?

So as a community banker, I work with different partners, whether they’re non-for-profits or advocacy groups, realtors, and I help educate buyers as far as with financial literacy and how to prepare for home ownership. I work grass roots, PTA meetings, talk in barber shops, anywhere I can about money, and that’s what I love about being a community banker.

Seeing it all come together from A to Z has to be the best part.

Man, I’ll whoop anybody in Madden, but no, I’m a big kid at heart. I try not to take myself too seriously all the time, but I’m Peter Pan.
