Sarah Baar credits her clients for her love of the industry. Looking back over 24 years of assisting them with home financing.
‘My clients are the reason I am here; they are the reason Old National Bank is here in West Michigan. We want to offer the best compliment of residential lending options for our new and existing clients.’
Professionalism, perseverance, and positivity are key elements she uses make the path from purchase and building contract to the closing table as smooth as possible on the financing side.

She brings immeasurable insight with her first-hand knowledge in ownership having purchased, renovated, and built 8 homes in the past 30 years.
