Jim is a man of his word! Goes over and beyond to make it happen !! So glad I have someone in banking I can trust and count on!
Jim and his team at BankSouth were very quick to answer all my questions, efficient at producing the work it took to effect my loan, and pleasant to work with! We have been BankSouth customers for many years, will continue to be for years to come, and will refer BankSouth to any of our friends who are looking for a bank that is run the way we'd do it.
Jim quickly returned our calls, provided great access, was very knowledgeable, and provided a true personal touch. We’re very grateful for the pleasure of working with Jim.
Communication during the process was terrific and thorough. Also the speed at which my request was handled could not have been better.
The Responsiveness and Professionalism made it a Great Experience.
