Here for your life, your business, and your home
No one understands your financial needs like a local bank where decisions aren’t run up to the corporate office. Our employees are your neighbors and customers, living the same realities as you.
That’s helped us develop our core values.
We’re here for our customers. We’re here for each other. And we’re here for the community.
What is known as BankSouth today is a combination of two local banks – The Citizens Bank was founded in Greensboro, Georgia, on April 1, 1946, and Bank of Union Point, was founded in Union Point, Georgia, on May 15, 1911. The bank operated as Citizens Union until adopting the name BankSouth in 2004. In February 2011, BankSouth acquired LoanSouth Mortgage, rebranded as BankSouth Mortgage, to provide greater market coverage and comprehensive products and services.
Over 75 years later, BankSouth remains locally owned and managed with board members who have served for decades to make BankSouth the leading financial institution for people in the region and across the county.
What makes a community? People. People who live in a community. People who are invested in it. Who plan their future in it.
We’re the community bank that specializes in helping people buy, build, or renovate their home. We’re the bank that is here to help our neighbors — and our community — build for the future. With a full range of services, our clients have more than a place to store their money…they have a partner invested in their future.
In 2011, the region’s most dynamic mortgage company merged with the BankSouth, a leading community bank serving Georgia and the southeast…and the result is a seamless experience for buyers and builders across both companies.
While we operate as two separate legal entities, our commitment to serving our customers is unified. What happens when a mortgage company and a bank become partners? Everyone –especially our customers — gets stronger.
