Horrible Service

Rates are very attractive, but their customer service is terrible. We've been approved for a loan for over three months. Every time we get close to closing they need some other esoteric paper work. The bank officer won't return calls, won't give us straight answers, and we have to go through a third party with connections in the bank to get them to return messages. Do not use this bank unless you have plenty of time to waste and enjoy frustration.

Simply Awesome!

Simply awesome! Easy to understand products, low fees, great service. Locally owned. What a bank should be.
