"From our very first contact with Thurston First, they have been unfailingly responsive and timely. We love the fact that when we call, we always get a real person. They are professional, friendly, and knowledgeable and are responsive to our inquiries. We wanted a local bank that was stable, ethical, and could meet the expanding needs of our growing company. We needed a financial partner that made our lives easier, not harder. We found all of that at Thurston First Bank."

After years of impersonal banking with a national bank, Dr. Banner wanted a banker who actually understood his practice’s needs and took a personal interest in its growth. "Thurston First Bank offered the convenience of Mobile Branch, eliminating daily trips to the bank. In addition, they offered lending, electronic payment and banking solutions, maximizing operational efficiencies."
—Brant Banner, DDS, Banner Family Dental
Robert cites the ACH service alone for saving his company thousands of dollars per year in transaction fees as well as reducing the monthly credit card reconciliation process from three days to three hours. "That kind of solution is valuable, but it’s the way Thurston First Bank services my account that you can’t put a price on. This was clearly one of the best business decisions we’ve made. I can see them being a lifetime bank.”
—Robert Ray, R.L. Ray Violin Shop, LLC
