STAR Financial Bank recently hired Rick Philbee as a mortgage loan originator for its Fort Wayne region, including Bluffton, Huntington and North Manchester. Located at STAR’s Service Center, 6230 Bluffton Road, Philbee will be responsible for helping customers secure mortgages as well as educating Fort Wayne real estate professionals and home builders on STAR’s mortgage products for their clients.

With eight years of experience in the mortgage industry, Philbee was formerly a loan officer for Vision Financial. He also served as an underwriter for Waterfield Financial, and in 1995, he graduated from Hoosier Real Estate School. Philbee, a resident of Fort Wayne for 24 years, lives with his wife and their three children.

“We are happy to welcome Rick! His vast mortgage experience will be an outstanding addition to our team. Because of STAR’s local mortgage servicing, Rick will be with his customers every step of the way—from loan origination to closing to taking care of escrow account questions or concerns for the life of the mortgage,” says Dave Egts, mortgage sales manager, STAR Financial Bank.
