If you go to the's list of communities,, and select a completed or building community, their entry includes a Cohousing Details section. The Cohousing Details section has a Commercial Lender entry. For Eno Commons, our entry says Commercial Lender: BB&T.

It also sounds like the banker at Wells Fargo is uninformed about condos generally. I suggest showing him all the info from the cohousing site on lenders. Even if it isn't the same lender, if it is a major bank, he should be impressed.

Also the Communities Association Institute has information on condos. They project, for example, that 4 out of 5 new housing units will be in homeowner associations of one kind or another.
