First Hope has been a phenomenal bank since I first started banking there in 5th grade. I was only 11 years old, but they had a great program of teaching kids the importance of saving. They enrolled me a graduated savings account where I earned different rewards, the best being my own ATM card, as long as my parents approved. Now that I am older, I still leave money in the bank as an emergency fund. The bank offers better rates than the leading big banks. Their customer service and online support are second to none. First Hope truly recognizes the importance of family-friendly clientele and being a neighborhood-friendly bank. I highly recommend that anyone who lives in the area to seek out their nearest branch and open an account.

Good bank that holds security in high regard.

I have been banking with First Hope Bank since I was 15 years old. I have had several savings accounts with them as well as my checking account and mortgage. Recently I went to get money out of my checking account via the ATM and needed to make change for the $20 bill I received. The teller had me give my account number just to make change which I thought was odd, but I guess they tie everything back to you. I also had another instance with my checking account in which is tied to my debit card. In today's world, I buy mostly everything with my debit card either online or at a store. Last year there were 2 incidences in which my card was flagged for fraudulent activity. This bank immediately put a stop to the card (even prior to me knowing about it). They contacted me right away and had a new card sent to me. I was very impressed that they caught the activity. As it turns out, one of the purchases was one that I had actually made online, but I was still pleased that they put a stop to my card just in case. The only downfall was that I had to wait a week each time for a new card. Now I hear they are able to issue a new card at the bank.

mark swift & dawn colombaris basically take ur money and promise u a quick closing, but they dont deliver.. They lie and just drag the loan process on; almost 4 months. loan never went through after 4 separate closing dates. after wasting time and over $1300 spent with them. I changed banks and closed without any bumps in 35 days. stay away from FIRST HOPE BANK! If WALMART did mortgages; u would probably get better service then at FIRST HOPE!!!
