Better Banks is headquartered in Peoria and is the 150th largest bank in the state of Illinois. It is also the 2,396th largest bank in the nation. It was established in 1898 and as of March of 2016, it had grown to 63 employees at 7 locations. Better Banks has a B+ health rating.
I tried to sell a rental property to an individual who was using Better Banks. Apparently it is policy to ask the seller for the sellers tax returns to see if the buyer is going to qualify to purchase the property. Even after being provided the traditional P&L, they still wanted information they weren't supposed to have. Very odd, beware!
