Mona Staaf Gunther
FIVE STAR Mortgage Professional
Salisbury Bank Mortgage Advisor, Mona Staaf-Gunther, was recently designated a FIVE STAR Mortgage Professional by Connecticut Magazine. This elite award is the result of a comprehensive selection process by Connecticut Magazine and Crescendo Business Service, in which more than 90,000 homeowners, 25,000 Connecticut Magazine subscribers and 250 mortgage and title companies were surveyed.

Respondents were asked to evaluate only mortgage professionals they knew through personal experience. They were asked to evaluate the professional on categories such as overall satisfaction and whether or not they would highly recommend them to a friend. Crescendo scored and screened each qualified mortgage professional against the Connecticut State regulating bodies. Then before the list was finalized the qualifying mortgage professionals were reviewed by a blue ribbon panel comprised of mortgage company executives, professional and trade association officers, realty company executives and others directly involved with the mortgage industry. The resulting list of Five Star Mortgage Professionals is an elite group that represents less than 3 percent of the licensed professionals in Connecticut.

"I am extremely pleased that a Salisbury Bank Mortgage Advisor has been given this elite designation", stated Michael Dixon, Executive Vice President of Salisbury Bank. "Mona is the ultimate professional and obviously thought very highly of by her customers and her peers", Dixon continued.

Originally from Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, Staaf-Gunther has been a Mortgage Advisor at the Bank since 1999 and currently lives in Millerton, NY with her husband, Robert. She is past president and current member of The Salisbury Rotary Club as well as a Paul Harris Fellow, a past president of The Tri-State Chamber of Commerce, and was named Woman of the Year (2008) by Litchfield County Business and Professional Women.

Salisbury Bancorp, Inc., is the parent company of Salisbury Bank and Trust Company, a full-service community bank headquartered in Lakeville, Connecticut which presently operates full service branches in Canaan, Lakeville, Salisbury and Sharon, Connecticut, Sheffield and South Egremont Massachusetts as well as Dover Plains and Millerton, New York.
