Meet the Lender: Dave Arkfeld

Omaha native, Dave Arkfeld recently joined the Lincoln Federal Savings Bank Lending Team. Working out of the Omaha branch with 27 years of experience in banking, home mortgage, and finance he is an asset to the team. As a member of the Mortgage Lending Team, Dave assists customers with financing new homes, refinancing existing homes, and securing financing for new construction homes. He can also assist with second home purchases and investment properties of 1-4 units.

Joining Lincoln Federal was an easy choice for Dave. Nebraska-based, in-house underwriting, and great interest rates were just a few of the benefits that attracted him. Dave adds, “Our clients really value our efforts to get the loan process completed as quickly as possible.”

"I feel the mortgage industry has really evolved with the advent of the internet and online mortgage loans," Dave remarks. "The internet has made it a commodity. A real estate transaction is the largest transaction people will ever undergo in their lives. That's why it's so important to work with someone you can trust, who you can reach out to with questions and for assistance. We're in the people business and the best way I know how to build that trust with my clients is to meet with them face-to-face. Personalized service. It's what I do really well at Lincoln Federal Savings Bank."

Maintaining and building new relationships with customers and industry peers through networking and Business Network International keeps him motivated. Recently, Dave has found himself working with children of past Lincoln Federal Savings Bank customers. “That is very satisfying as most of my business is by referral. The mortgage lending business is cyclical and dependent upon rate changes, so it is good to be with a trusted institution like Lincoln Federal.” Lincoln Federal holds a rapport among the community with the Lending Hands Program that gets employees involved with charitable programs and volunteer opportunities. Dave looks forward to joining in and volunteering!

In his free time, Dave enjoys spending time with his wife, Michelle and their four children. He is a self-proclaimed ‘Jaysker,’ enjoying both Creighton and Nebraska sports. Dave directs Little League Baseball in Nebraska as the District Administrator; a position he has held for approximately 10 years. In addition to baseball, Dave is involved with Skutt Catholic football and participates as an active member of Knights of Columbus at his church, St. Robert Bellarmine in Omaha.
