President of Lee Bank, David Bruce, announced today that experienced mortgage loan officer, Kaylin Choquette, has joined the team at Lee Bank in its downtown Pittsfield office. Choquette brings a well-rounded perspective to the role with experience as a realtor and in retail sales prior to several years as a loan mortgage officer in the Berkshires.
“We are thrilled to have Kaylin joining our Pittsfield office. She delivers great energy and experience, and importantly, she truly understands the needs of people in the Berkshires,” said Bruce. “She has shown a unique ability to work successfully with younger first-time homebuyers and downsizing retirees, alike. Kaylin is a wonderful addition to our home mortgage team.”
Choquette comes to Lee Bank after serving as a mortgage loan officer over the past four years for Berkshire Bank, and most recently, Citizens Bank.

“Lee Bank’s reputation for exceptional service is unmatched in the Berkshires. I am proud to be a part of a group, which is the finest in the business,” said Choquette. “I have dedicated my own career to serving people in the Berkshires. Lee Bank is clearly one financial institution that has maintained a true focus and commitment to Berkshire County. It’s a perfect fit.”
Prior to becoming a mortgage loan officer in 2011 with Berkshire Bank, Choquette was a licensed realtor with The Kinderhook Group from 2009 to 2011.
