Great Community Bank

I love banking with American Chartered! All of the bankers and tellers are so friendly and treat me like I am an old friend when I walk in. They have free checking with no service fees and once when I accidentally overdrew my account, they were nice enough to waive the fee for me as a courtesy. Their rates on CDs and Money Markets used to kind of good but now they're not that great- I think it has more to do with the economy, though, than the bank itself. American Chartered is convenient and they have a very helpful staff. I also refinanced my mortgage through them, and they made the process nice and easy!

Good, Solid Local Banking

I have banked with American Chartered for over 15 years. I've had checking and savings and occasionally will do a CD (although rates the last few years are terrible). They have always treated me great. They are friendly and treat me like a fellow neighbor. They're not greedy like the big banks that charge you fees for every little thing. I have had free checking and savings with them for all these years. They also have good online banking and have recently upgraded it so it's even easier to use. I'd highly recommend them for anyone looking for no hassles and friendly service. They will treat you like a person, not a number or another fee!!!
