Review Of First Madison Valley Bank

First Madison Valley Bank primarily services the Madison Valley in southwestern Montana. Based out of Ennis, the bank has two locations. The only other bank in town is Valley Bank, with one location. Of the two, FMVB has many more ATM locations, including ones conveniently placed at the gas station and grocery store. As far as basic checking and savings account services, FMVB is pretty average. When it comes to servicing loans and mortgages, I would recommend Valley Bank before FMVB. Valley Bank is much friendlier and provides much better personal service.
