Vanessa Bartholomew was born and raised in a small town in New Hampshire into a family of Real Estate Investors. She began her career in sales management at a young age of 21. In 2007, she made the bold decision to follow in her family’s footsteps and took her first position in the industry as a mortgage banker in Boston, Massachusetts. Vanessa’s career took her to Ellicott City, MD where she has resided for the past 12 years.

Upon moving to the metro DC area, Vanessa was hired in mortgage operations where she became a top processor. In 2013, Vanessa started with The Federal Savings Bank in an operational role and was soon promoted to Senior Vice President. She uses the knowledge and skills she perfected in her career to assist bankers on a multitude of sales related items and always strives to ensure customers have a world class experience when doing business with her and The Federal Savings Bank.

Vanessa’s biggest joy in life is her 12-year old son Gavin. When away from work, she likes to travel home to Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire and also to her second home in Cape Coral, Florida. She loves being on the water, boating, snowmobiling and spending time with family and friends.


Outstanding experience throughout the entire process. Loved it.

It is a very rare event that I am thoroughly impressed by a financial institution. Vanessa Bartholomew has not only impressed me with her incredible knowledge of her industry, but has demonstrated to me what type of employees all banks should need to match their competition. The Federal Savings Bank has a gem in Vanessa! Thank you again for your all hard work and seeing this through for me.
