Happy Fourth of July

Fourth of July 2017 reminderWe are closed Tuesday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day. We’ll be open regular hours on Monday and Wednesday. Remember, through our robust technological platform, you can bank most any time from most anywhere. Need more info?

We love hearing from happy clients!

CheckmarkDearest Mary, Thank you so very much for all of your help in securing our loan for our home here in Philadelphia. You were prompt, organized, thorough & professional, as well as kind, which made all of the difference in our interactions with you. We put our trust in you and you most definitely came through for us. Thank you for your patience as well as treating us as people rather than just home loan customers. You stand above the rest, Mary Blanchard! Thank you,
Savitre and Boodram Narain

Tasty choices

Chicken Salad ChickGreat to see our friend and client Chicken Salad Chick expanding into Buckhead – the Southern-inspired fast-casual eatery is now open at 4365 Roswell Road in the Roswell Wieuca Shopping Center.


Harvey Foundation logoTerrific profile of our friend and client Steve Harvey in the AJC. Read about the Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation’s National Mentoring Camp for Young Men (and other great work!).

You say it best

Bistra Krumova


I just want to express my happiness to work with your company. I was so satisfied with the experience that I had with Bistra Krumova. She was amazing. She answered all of my questions and complaints. She kept me informed through the whole process. There (are) no words that can express my feelings about this wonderful woman. Just professional. I do want to thank you and Bistra for the great experience that you gave me. If I had to go through this process again, I will immediately contact Bistra. She is my first and only choice!

20 beers, er, years…

Brick Store PubOur friend and client Brick Store Pub has been getting lots of great press for its 20th anniversary, including this fun 20 beers for 20 years video from Atlanta Eats, complete with a road trip. Congratulations!

Senior Prom

Senior Connections PromRecently, Private Bank of Decatur Branch Manager Juanita Marzette, Private Bank of Buckhead Branch Manager Tawanna Robinson and Personal Banker Carmen Enid Soto represented us well at the Senior Connections’ Eighth Annual Senior Prom. Proceeds fund Senior Connections’ programs and operational expenses. We’re proud to call Senior Connections a friend and client, and the bank’s Asif Mujtaba serves on their board.

It must be Summer

Decatur Beach Party 2017Thanks to the Decatur Business Association for a great, reinvigorated event – Summer in the City, Sand in the City. We saw a lot of old friends and made many new ones. Along the way we shared some fun bank “swag.” A bonus: Tastiness from our friends at Nectar, who helped keep us cool!

Congratulations to Steve and his team!

AwardsCongratulations to our friends at Reporter Newspapers who won 12 Georgia Press Association awards in the Association’s 2017 Better Newspaper Contest. The papers are helmed by Steve Levene, who we are lucky to have serving on our Community Partners Board, which is another way we broaden our relationships.

Happy clients = happy bank

Number 1The Decatur staff are amazing – I am a very happy client!
