Borrowing has the potential to enrich and improve lives. We’re here to empower you with our lending services.

Keeping Lending Under Our Own Roof

We never have to check with “corporate” or with third-party underwriters in another state, because most of our loans are true portfolio loans. That means your loan originates with us and is retained by us, and all your payments are made here. That’s really important to us as Portsmouth’s local bank. It’s our way of maintaining superior customer service, while making a genuine investment in the community.

We Put Your Interests First

Not only does our team offer exceptional and diverse borrowing ideas, we’re very dedicated to customer service. One way we support this dedication? Our loan officers don’t work on commission, and therefore they always put your best interests first. If you haven’t visited our bank yet, come in and talk with one of us.

What We Do Best

Our loan officers will guide you through the entire lending process, from the initial application to closing and beyond. We believe designing a loan that truly meets your needs takes a commitment from a loan officer who has the knowledge and experience to accommodate you. We look forward to working closely with you to satisfy your objectives — it’s what we do.
