Customer Reviews for The Bank of Princeton

  • November 1, 2022 |

    This local community bank “by far” exceeded my expectations of what a banking institution should be. They take the time to understand their customers needs, educatedly answer questions, and take the time to follow up when needed. With an unsettling employee turnover and many larger branch closings, those tasks can easily fall short of the mark. Consider bank management and board members ARE part of the community, not just sitting in lofty towers somewhere.
