Kitsap Economic Development Alliance Real Estate Symposium

October 22, 2015

The Kitsap Economic Development Alliance (KEDA) sponsored a Real Estate Symposium that was held at the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort.  Liberty Bank sponsored a table and made a short presentation that summarized the bank’s progress over the last several years. Liberty Bank’s Senior VP & Relationship Manager Duane Edwards reminded attendees that Liberty Bank was the last bank chartered on the west coast and that it is passionate about building relationships that strengthen our community.

The Symposium was designed to give the attendees an update on the strengths and weaknesses in the local real estate market and, in general, the speakers were all upbeat and positive. Liberty Bank would agree that its continues to see strengths in the real estate markets and that continued improvements are expected due to the spillover from the Seattle market.  Duane talked about the Liberty Bank commitment to the local real estate market with owner occupied commercial real estate, non-owner occupied commercial real estate, land development, owner occupied and non-owner occupied single family construction, and Home Equity Lines of Credit.

“Liberty Bank is deeply involved in the regional community,” Duane concluded. “This is why it is important to bank with your local community bank, where dollars are kept in the community and put to work to improve quality of business and life in the region, thereby augmenting the overall economic growth of local markets.”
