Offering both traditional and portfolio loan solutions, SouthStar Bank is your go-to mortgage lender.

At SouthStar Bank in Steiner Ranch, Jim Trungale and Greg Vesely explain how dynamic teamwork and the broad lending capabilities of SouthStar Bank best serve clients and realtors throughout Central Texas. Realtors routinely refer their clients to Jim because he's a lender who understands the complexities of mortgage underwriting in today's market. “I’ve been in the industry for nearly 30 years. I’ve seen the ups and downs, immense changes in the region, and put thousands into homes,” says Trungale, Mortgage Production Manager & Senior Loan Officer.

And if a client doesn’t quite fit the strict criteria for a secondary market loan, SouthStar Bank provides in-house portfolio loans to keep the deal from falling through. “I enjoy finding mortgage solutions for borrowers who have complex deals and qualifying challenges,” says Greg Vesely, Branch Executive and SVP. From unique properties such as homes on acreage or non-warrantable condos, to borrower hurdles such as self-employment or blemished credit, SouthStar Bank offers flexible, common-sense loan solutions. And with new homes being built at record pace, SouthStar Bank is proud to offer lot loans and construction to permanent financing with one-time close.

“Service and relationships are key in this business,” says Vesely. With its ‘Banking… Texas Style’ motto, SouthStar Bank prides itself on providing the small-town feel of truly personal service, without sacrificing the professional expertise and competitive products clients deserve.

Established in 1920, the bank holds over $1 billion in assets and focuses on community involvement and personal relationships.
