1st Security Bank sponsor Dwell Development on KING5′s New Day Northwest!

Our awesome construction lending partner 1st Security Bank sponsored our first segment on KING5′s New Day Northwest with Margaret Larson, which aired on lucky Leap Day, February 29th!  Anthony was joined by 1st Security Bank’s Dennis O’Leary, SVP Construction Lending who shared with the audience their commitment to built green, sustainable housing and their community.  Dennis went on to say that this commitment is a critical step to improving the local economy, environment and overall livability for our city, bringing new employment to our neighborhoods.

Anthony spoke with Margaret about how he got into developing modern sustainable energy efficient homes, crediting his loving and supportive family, and went on to share highlights about current projects in the works including the first spec Passive House to be built in the state of Washington and the upcoming partnership with Habitat of Humanity Seattle/South King County and Miller Hull on The House of the Immediate Future project.

1st Security Bank is really all about the neighborhoods they serve - not just a small bank but a good neighbor and supporter of the local community groups.  As big advocates of our local Chambers of Commerce, supporters of organizations that promote education and keeping our kids safe and strong, and embracing diversity and equality at all levels, 1st Security Bank demonstrate they that uphold the belief of connecting community through business.

As you can see there are a lot of synergies between the 1st Security Bank and Dwell Development-we were thrilled to launch our series of New Day Northwest segments with them as our 1st sponsor!

Click on the KING5 screen shot above to see the full segment, and you can see Margaret Larson’s special end of show “shout out” to 1st Security Bank and Dwell Development here.
