This Bank Deserves More Customers!

It has the best small business checking account in the Atlanta area. No fees, friendly, easy to work with. If more people had sense enough to bank with them, their deposit ratio would climb and their "health" rating would go up. I've had it with Wells' inefficient service and high fees. I started out at First Union, and they and every later iteration of that bank got gobbled up by the mega-banks. Cornerstone is a small bank, but as far as general banking, I have no complaints. I have accounts with 3 companies there.
Their interface with Quicken could be better and they could have fancy ATMs that give you images; but check images are returned in your statement (for free) and you can view all deposit slips and checks online any time (also for free).
I like this bank, my funds are all FDIC insured, and I'm happy to bank there. Drop by a branch to see for yourself that it's not necessary to stand in long lines just to pay high fees.
