Something the bank is proud of is its four-star rating by Bauer Financial.
Banks are rated one through five (four being excellent) based on earnings, capital, and the overall financial condition of the bank, explained Mike Seaberg, vice president. Therefore, the higher the rating, the stronger the bank.
Though the products and services may remain the same when it comes to larger, national banks, “it’s the manner in which we conduct business that differentiates us.”
The bank has been under local ownership with the Knoff family for more than 30 years, and most of its employees have been with the company from five to 30 years.
“We have the ability to know our customers and their needs,” Seaberg said, explaining the employees are customers’ neighbors; living, shopping, and going to church in the same community.
“It takes that stability, trust and financial strength to allow us to provide for our customers. And that feels good,” Seaberg commented.
