I couldn’t be more pleased working with Fidelity Bank. They were very personable, cooperative, transparent, and friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure my business goals and objectives were met. They did not stop until my SBA Loan was processed, approved, and completed. I am a happy customer and would recommend Fidelity Bank to any small business, that needs a responsive banking partner. In today’s world of the “The Big Banks”, Fidelity Bank stands “Heads and Shoulders” above all of them. No Complaints – Only Praise!
Starting my own business has always been a dream of mine. When I made the decision to start the process, I really did not know where to begin. I visited my local branch of Fidelity Bank and they laid everything out and got the process started. We had many hurdles to overcome, and they helped me over all of them. The overall experience with Fidelity Bank has been awesome. I could not have done this without their help and guidance.
We have worked with Fidelity Bank to purchase two businesses and our experience has been fantastic both times! Everyone we worked with in each transaction has been very knowledgeable and responsive which is critical when dealing with the purchase of a business and all of the third parties involved. We closed on time with both acquisitions and are planning to use them again. I would highly recommend Fidelity Bank to anyone that is looking for guidance with SBA lending. They are true professionals!
I couldn’t be more pleased with working with Fidelity Bank to secure an SBA loan. Everyone was extremely helpful and always pleasant and professional. My questions and concerns were always addressed timely. I am so happy with the support I received at every step of the loan process.
Our dream would not be a reality without the Fidelity Bank team. Our focus as a business is to be community driven, to support the people around us and find ways to give back. When we needed it most, our community bank was there to help us out. For that I’m grateful. You have a customer for life!
