We love our bank!

We have been banking here for over 20 years. I love the individualized service you get at a small local bank. When my husband had his business we had his account here as well as our personal checking and a savings account. They knew him when he walked in and we have always been treated with the utmost respect and friendliness. I have had experience in the past with big banks and there is no comparison. I also like that smaller banks might be less likely to be the target of hackers. In today's world there is so much to look out for. Since so much of banking is accomplished online now we don't have as much interaction with the actual personnel at the bank but if we ever need to call our questions are answered quickly and professionally every time. I would not consider changing banks, especially to a big bank, even though we don't have ALL of the conveniences available at bigger banks. I would rather have the great service than all of the bells and whistles.

No CD Promotion Available?

I had a CD come due at this bank recently and went in to my local branch to renew the CD at the current posted promotion rate on this site. When I asked them about the promotion, they had no idea what I was talking about and said they didn't have a promotion even close to that rate. Why advertise the promotion if the banks don't have it? They lost my business to yet another internet bank.

Wasn't Pleased

Valley National Bank - Fort Lee Palisades Branch - The Worst!

Posted by: |

Absolute worst bank, do not trust them with your money. Customer service, without warning or reason, blocked my 87 year old mothers bank account and told me I had to go to the branch to unblock. I go there with my mom, immediately show our ids and ask them to unblock. I informed them I didn't have much time as i had to catch a flight. They precede to say they can't do anything without the branch where we originally opened the account. I explained the back office told us to go to any branch to unblock but they wouldn't listen. They continued to waste our time and call the branch we opened it at, and after wasting another 15min, the branch told them exactly what I told them, the back office needed to lift the block. Then an absolutely horrible employee Omar Marte, accuses me of kidnapping my mom and forcing her to take out the money for me!! Then he refuses to let her withdraw any funds from her account even though she was there in person with picture ID. I would like to file a formal complaint against Omar Marte. The amount of stress this branch gave me and my 87 yo mom today is unacceptable. The fact that they did not allow my mom access to her money is unacceptable! Me being accused of being a criminal is unacceptable! Also, the people at the branch do not know what they are doing!!
