First Class Mortgage + Wind Chill

The Minnesota Wind Chill are thrilled to announce First Class Mortgage as the the official mortgage company and preferred lending partner of the team for the 2023 season.

Looking to purchase a home or refinance in the near future? Schedule a no-obligation pre-approval meeting with Casey and mention the partnership with the Wind Chill to receive a pair of tickets with upgraded beer garden access (includes 2 free drinks per person), good for any regular season game this summer at Sea Foam Stadium!

The First Class Mortgage process ensures quick and hassle-free home financing for first-time homebuyers and refinancers alike. They work with your real estate agent to establish a timeline and shop multiple lenders to find a loan with the lowest rates and affordable terms.

“We are excited to have Casey and First Class Mortgage involved with the team this year,” said Wind Chill General Manager, Ben Feldman. “Being a family-owned business, and having a first-class reputation, it was a perfect fit when it came to aligning our brands and partnering together”, said Feldman. “We hope to have many of their family-oriented clients out to Sea Foam Stadium this year to experience everything we have to offer on game day”.

“I have had the unique perspective of seeing thousands of family’s financials while striving to reach their goal of homeownership,” said Casey Van Winkle, owner of First Class Mortgage. “In many cases, family budgets are stretched,” said Van Winkle. “In the Twin Cities, we all know how expensive most things have become such as buying a home but also for family entertainment.  It has become just too expensive to go to the movies, take the family to a ballgame, or even the fair.  One of the reasons why I love this partnership with the Wind Chill is that the team provides a very affordable outing that is family-friendly, safe, and incredibly fun for all.”
