Hometown bank, big bank skills

This Pittsburgh has always been able to handle all of my personal banking needs. I've run into very few problems here and have no intention of leaving. I've grown accustomed to them and feel like I am a valued guest whenever I walk in. There's nothing I feel they wouldn't do for me in order to get done what I need done. The team there almost becomes family as we see each other and we chat about the things going on in our lives. This bank has everything bigger banks have but more charm.

Refinance A Cluster!

We refinanced a loan through Northwest Savings Bank twice! They screwed the loan up so much that they never paid our taxes and our taxes became default. We had to come up with the money for the taxes after they gave us the loan that was suppose to cover them. As soon as we can refinance again we are leaving!

My Review of Northwest Savings Bank

My husband and I have been banking with Northwest Savings Bank for almost 4 years. Overall, we have been pretty satisfied with our experience with this bank. It was simple to open up a checking account with them, and we liked that it requires no fees to do so. The customer service is usually good. Sometimes it takes awhile to get ahold of the guy in charge of loans. We were able to get a personal loan to consolidate some debt, and we like the competitive interest rates this bank offers. Unfortunately, this bank was not able to help us with a mortgage. However, I would probably reccommend this bank to others.
