The bank has an online application, however, it states that the bank only serves "areas of Collin, Dallas, Denton, Rockwall, Tarrant and other contiguous counties within the state of Texas." I've been told by the bank that they do require a branch visit to complete the application process. It's a small bank with one office located in Richardson, Texas which is in the suburbs of Dallas.
