Community First – WVFSL’s top 3 reasons why it is important to build a relationship with your bank.

Wallkill Valley Federal Savings & Loan is a bank that believes in putting Community First.  One of the ways we do this is that we build relationships with our customers.  We spend the time getting to know you.  We find out about your goals and then work to help you come up with a plan to achieve them. 

In this digital age, many people focus on convenience.   In doing so, it down plays the importance of relationship.  To that end we thought we would give you 3 good reasons to establish a relationship with your banker. 

1 – You will save money
Building a relationship with your bank and establishing all your accounts and loans with one particular bank will save you money in the long run.  First, we offer several interest bearing checking and savings accounts that are fee free if you maintain a low monthly balance.  Plus…

When you make a commitment to your bank, your bank will make a commitment to you.  Establishing long term relationships with your bank often means that they will be able to extend rates that lower that what is available to the general public.  They are able to do this simply because they know you; they understand who you are and what your financial history has been over the long haul.

2 – You have tons of resources at your fingertips
Our ultimate goal is to help you achieve your goals!  We want our customers to be fiscally responsible and are here to give you the kind of advice you need to make smart financial decisions.  Once we have an understanding of what your goals are, we are here to help you take steps to achieve them.  Plus…

Bankers sit with customers and businesses from all around the community day after day.  That means we know people who know people! As your bank we are happy to give recommendations for the services you need.  If you are looking for a new accountant….we can provide you with a list of accountants that we have had good success with in the past.  If you are purchasing a home and need a lawyer to help you with the mortgage process, we can direct you to a few lawyers we’ve dealt with during our closings and are able to recommend.

The bottom line here is if you have a question regarding your personal finance or your business, come to us…let us know and we would be happy to point you in the direction of help. 

3 – You’ve got a friend in us
This is the central idea of our Community First mantra.  People come first.  When you bank with Wallkill you become a part of the family, so we actively look for ways to better serve the needs of our customers, developing the products and services that allow you to bank easier.  We are here for you and sincerely hope that when life’s little issues come your way you turn to us for help.  Plus…

When you take the time to develop a relationship with your bank, it is easier to ask and receive forgiveness for life’s little mistakes.  Life happens and we totally get it.  So if you make a mistake and a fee comes your way, call us…

If you are ready for a personal banking experience, then we would encourage you to stop by one of our branch locations. One of our staff would be happy to sit with you, discover your financial needs and help you take steps toward achieving them.  We want to develop a relationship with you, so let’s get started!
