No Problem With The Bank

Initially, I was a customer of Viewpoint Bank which then was bought by Legacy Texas Bank and, since June 2020, has become Prosperity Bank. I have never had any problem with the bank, the personnel inside nor the online help. Certainly the pandemic has caused wait times for online business but that is true for every institution. I live in Plano, Texas, and perhaps the folks here are just especially nice.

A Great Bank

I have read the reviews and I can't believe they are real. I have banked with Prosperity Bank for a long time, before they were anything more than a small, hometown bank. I have always been treated with respect and a smile. They treat me and everyone I know like family. We bank with several other bank and they are terrible by comparison.

Worst Bank Ever

Posted by: |

Legacy Texas should never have sold to Prosperity. The customer service is at Prosperity Bank is the worst. They promised that Legacy accts would be grandfathered in and nothing would change. The checking account I had through Legacy was a no fee acct. Prosperity is now charging me fees on top of fees. I was never notified about any fees and never agreed to this type of account. They also double debited my account a few hundred dollars, and tried to fight me so they didn't have to give me my money back. As far as I'm concerned, Prosperity Bank is stealing from its customers. Beware! If I could give zero stars, I would.

Best Local Bank In Houston, Texas

In September of 2013, I tried to buy a home for the second time in my life. The first I got cold feet and terminated the contract. Then in 2013, I approached my Realtor again and started the process of buying a home again. She recommended me to a mortgage broker and she was horrible. I called someone from a local Chase Bank and he was not willing to do my loan. Prosperity Bank was my last option (as in the last bank I would try). The loan officer at Prosperity was very courteous and was willing to do all she can to help me. My realtor called and told her the situation and she offered to help me. When I called her and gave her my loan package, I asked her if I was going to get approved. She looked over my file and gave me an answer I didn't expected, she said "We can close in a week". I was relieved! The loan officer was able to apply the left over closing cost paid by the seller toward my down payment. The loan officer was a first class lender and I recently referred my sister to her for a mortgage. I would have moved my entire banking relationship to Prosperity Bank, but I work for a bank so I have to keep banking relationship at my bank.
