Meet Tim Sanderson
Tim has more than 30-years’ experience in the mortgage industry, more than half of that with Peoples. After receiving an undergraduate degree from UW-Whitewater, Tim also graduated from the Wisconsin Bankers Association Mortgage Lending School. Tim says helping customers find the dream home they’ve always wanted gives him great satisfaction. Tim is based in our Minocqua location, and says the market for homes—including vacation homes in the Northwoods—dictates getting pre-approved to be able to move quickly when the right home is put on the market. Aside from helping customers finance their homes, Tim is a member of the Lakeland Rotary Club, Headwaters Builders Association, and the Northwoods Chapter of Muskies, Inc.
"Tim was extremely helpful to work with and responded expeditiously to all our questions. It was our first mortgage and time was of the essence. Tim expedited the paperwork and did an excellent job of explaining the details. I would highly recommend working with Peoples and, more specifically, Tim."
