How Community Banks Offer a Personal Touch that Enhances Your Banking Experience

Michael Leonard, BankSouth Market President in Atlanta, recently spoke with Metro Atlanta CEO about why banking with a community bank remains important in the digital age to give you the level of personalized service you expect from a financial institution. You can view the video on the Metro Atlanta CEO website.

Why Bank with a Georgia Community Bank: Personalized Service

Online banking has made the way we bank more convenient and digital banking with a community bank offers you all the convenience of online banking with the personalized service you want with your financial institution. Community banks prioritize giving their customers personalized service – they typically have a smaller customer base which allows local bankers to understand their financial situation and needs better than regional or national banks.

Why Bank with a Georgia Community Bank: Local Decision-Making

Did you know that community banks are locally owned and operated? That means that there is no corporate ladder or red tape when it comes to making credit or lending decisions. All lending and banking decisions happen right here in the community. This enables quicker responses and flexibility when it comes to lending approvals, credit decisions, and other banking topics.

Why Bank with a Georgia Community Bank: Community Support

Community banks have a strong connection with their local communities. By choosing to bank with a community bank, customers indirectly contribute to the growth and prosperity of their local community in the form of charitable donations and lending to local businesses and neighbors.
