Community First National Bank was newly chartered on February 1, 2001 in response to the ownership change of several locally owned banks in the Manhattan market. We spent a great deal of time and put much thought into choosing our Community First name because it represents what we are all about; Community in the sense that we are locally owned and managed; Community in the sense that our owners and employees donate our time here, spend our money here, and keep our profits here; and Community in the sense of an old fashioned hometown bank where the bankers know you and you know the bankers on a personal basis.
Our emphasis here at Community First is on establishing long term, personal relationships with our customers. Our motto, "Putting Relationships First" , is not just a slogan from days gone by, it is our commitment to doing business the way it used to be done. Here we believe that customer service is an attitude not a department and we vow to get answers to your financial questions in a quick, friendly way, without the run around you can get at the big banks.
This old fashioned dedication to personal service is enhanced by the latest technology available at the very biggest banks. We offer 24 hour Internet and telephone access to your accounts, imaged bank statements, multiple ATM locations, debit and credit cards, and overdraft protection. We are constantly looking for ways to have technology help us do things better and faster.
Community First National Bank is very competitive on its deposit rates and offers special expertise in small business lending, real estate and construction lending, and all types of consumer lending. We hope you will stop by and let us show you what a difference "Putting Relationships First " can make!
