Stacey Vincent, who has been working with area homebuyers for the past 20 years, recently became an assistant vice president for mortgage lending at Town and Country Bank. Vincent previously held similar positions with Hickory Point Bank & Trust and Illinois National Bank.

“Town and Country Bank has a good reputation in the community and great marketing plans,” said Vincent. “I felt it was an excellent opportunity.”

Vincent explained, “My goal has always been to do what is in the best interest of the customer and help them understand the process along the way to make their experience stress-free. I strive to promote personal relationships with each borrower and make fast loan decisions.”

In 2005, she was one of the first mortgage lenders in the region to earn the Certified Community Lender designation. “There’s not very many of us around here,” Vincent said, “That’s one of my greatest professional accomplishments.” She is also involved in several local charitable organizations, including the Children’s Dyslexia Center of Springfield and Girl Scouts of Central Illinois.

Vincent is a lifelong resident of Springfield. She and her husband have two children, Isabel, age 16, and Nathan, age 6.
