Alpine Bank voted Best Bank and Best Mortgage Broker in Best of Colorado Business Choice Awards

Alpine Bank was voted Best Bank and Best Mortgage Broker by readers of ColoradoBiz Magazine as part of the publication’s inaugural Best of Colorado Business Choice Awards.

To determine the Best of Colorado Business Choice Awards, an online voting process was set up and ran several months to identify winners and runners-up in 62 categories. Participants were asked to vote for the companies they’d trust to take care of their colleagues and friends and were required to vote in at least 10 categories. In another measure to minimize purely self-interested ballots, participants were allowed to vote for their own company once, but were also required to vote for at least two other companies in that category. The result was a truly community-generated list.

In addition to being voted Best Bank and Best Mortgage Broker, Alpine Bank was a runner-up in the Wealth Managers/Financial Planners category.
