I have had the privilege of working with First Bank of Berne for several years. The Mortgage Department is second to none. Angela Paxson and Angie Bultemeier are simply the best. If you need a Mortgage for your Home, Farm or Business, you need to call them First.
I have always used national banks so when I switched to a local bank, I was very nervous. I didn't think their service would be as good as a major bank. What sold me on First Bank of Berne was there was no fee for having a checking account with them. This is what I was looking for so I made the switch that day that I found out. Their customer service is amazing. Whenever I needed help with anything, I could give them a call and they were there. When I was working on my mortgage, I needed them to find a check I deposited months previous to this. Within an hour I received a call back from them saying that they found it and made copies for me. I needed forms notarized and they did this for me free of charge!
The only thing that I dislike about this bank is their website. The online experience with them is not the best. Also, after a certain time, deposits do not show up on their online website. It is not like a major bank in that aspect at all. You have to wait until after 8-9 AM for things to start showing up on your online account. That is my only problem with this local bank. Other than that, they are perfect!
