Morton Community Bank--Worth The Drive

Morton Community Banks has nearly 30 locations.  I drove to their Toluca branch in April for their 10-year CD.  My account rep, Roanna, was extremely helpful.  Back then I got 4.00%.  The rate has since dropped to 3.70%, but still worth it.  Because I had already been there before, I was able to call Roanna on the phone last week to set up a second CD.  I mailed the check to her attention and she did the rest.  I like the small town atmosphere and the helpful, sincere people that work there.  I would recommend Morton as a place to invest in longer term CDs.
