As a growing local business, it quickly became apparent we had found a bank that we truly mattered to, and that could also help us accomplish our goals. We connected with First State Bank after years of working with several other larger regional and national banks. We were clearly just a number at the other banks even as our business grew. With First State Bank, we were immediately connected to the bank's senior upper management who are excellent! They took the time to come tour our facility and spent hours learning about our business and our operation. They listened to our needs and even went above and beyond by suggesting solutions we weren't even requesting from them after they saw areas where they could help us.
The entire loan process was extremely quick and easy with minimal "red tape" that we found at the larger banks. We dealt directly with decision makers who are smart, understood our business and its needs and have a great knowledge of the local market, so they're empowered to make smart decisions quickly. Although they might be smaller than some larger banks around, they're a very successful bank with deep funds to accommodate very large accounts. Their interest rates were as competitive as any we found and better than the "big guys." Their fees on everyday banking are the best we've seen as well. They truly are better in every way.
Whether it's a quick question about researching a check or doing a commercial real estate loan with them, everyone we've worked with at the bank has been extremely helpful, competent and friendly. We can't recommend them enough to bank with! They're truly a first class bank with the best team and service around!
