Outstanding institutions begin first and foremost with outstanding individuals. This is what one gets when they bank with Evergreen Bank Group. Every step in the transition process with this bank was undertaken with professionalism and care. They were the solutions bank, not the roadblock bank. That says it all!! I can mention individuals but there is no “I” in team and with this bank, you get a team all working for you and your success. I went the large bank route and it was a mistake. Evergreen Bank has everything those large banks have as far as technology and cash and loan vehicles. They have more when it comes to service and experience. It felt good not teaching a young banker every two years about your business because the banker who had your account left. — JK

Retail Customers

Now-a-days it is all too often that banks employ unprofessional, impersonal staff who routinely make transactions, like renewal of CDs, a cumbersome process. Evergreen Bank, however, is exceptional. This financial institution, and the dedicated culture of outstanding customer service it upholds, makes banking an enjoyable as well as rewarding experience because they usually have the best interest rates I can find. — MF

Evergreen Bank is exceptional!!! The bank offers extremely competitive products, the facility is appealing and most importantly the staff is one of the bank’s greatest assets. The bank representatives are professional, courteous, helpful, responsive, and make you feel like you are the most important customer they had that day. Most banks are good, but Evergreen Bank takes banking to the next level. I highly recommend Evergreen. — KM
