“We have been customers at FRB for nearly 5 years, this is the best bank we have ever had. The team at the SB branch is fantastic! Its not just the service, they truly care, they build a relationship. My 2 year old likes going to bank because of the people (and cookies)! Banking is not a thing I usually write a review about, because most of the time what determines a good institution is interest rates, lending etc. Don't get me wrong FRB does well in these departments but what keeps me here is the personal touch, the kind and caring staff, the way they treat every customer whether they have $2 or $20M. This is by far the best bank in Santa Barbara.”

“Love my bank and Angie has been there for years. I believe I have been one of their longest customers in the downtown Santa Barbara branch. I would not go to any other bank!”

“Credit Unions tend to be so much more homey and down to earth, and this one fits the bill. The staff are casual yet very knowledgeable and informed and helpful. (Not that it matters but the location is beautiful and so is the building as well) The one problem is the limited number of blue placard (handicapped) parking places, but mainly it is very difficult to get into the front door if you are in a wheelchair or stroller or walker. It is old and not handicap friendly building.”

“We've had multiple accounts here for 20 years. Savings, checking, car loans. The staff is friendly, the loan rates are highly competitive, the account fees are free or very modest. A welcome alternative to impersonal, customer indifferent, corporate bank setting.”

“Covid has been a difficult time for everyone. But community West Bank made this whole experience so much easier. I own a small business in town and they have been AMAZING at getting me all the help and support I need with the PPP loans and more! David Hall has been beyond helpful. Anytime I have a question or concern I can call him directly and he always answers. This bank is so easy to work with and they are always up to date with all the newest funding options and banking options. Thank you Community West Bank for making this hard stressful year soooo much easier for me and my business!”

“These guys are absolutely amazing. I've used them twice and I can't imagine ever using a different moving service. These guys literally run back and forth when they aren't carrying something. Very hard workers, fair pricing, top notch!”

“This review is about an employee of this bank. Brae is one of the finest people you could ask for to handle your banking. She goes above and beyond and is incredibly competent. That is a rare gem to find these days. She cares, is personable and goes out of her way to give you excellent five star service. When Brae retires I will have to find another bank as she has set the bar so high no others can shine that brightly”

“I've been very happy with Schwab for over 25+ years. Their advisors and estate planning specialists (Marjie in particular) have been invaluable; readily available, knowledgeable and probably saving me thousands of dollars in estate lawyer fees.”

“I have been very satisfied with this branch of Mechanics Bank. I make in person deposits and tellers are friendly. This location is open. I can't say about anything more than just checking and saving accounts simple transactions.”

“I've been banking with different banks since a teen...And don't recall any that create such a great atmosphere to walk into...I'm a stickler for customer service And admit that I don't understand how to use the many banking slips that are available for banking needs..Instead of going to atmMy preferred choice is always to make my way to state street and visit the gals that make my life easier Whether your teller for the day is Laureen or the morning Crystal....You are always in good hands amongst the complete staff they employ.These ladies that serve customer needs on a day to day basis always know how to treat customers. Remembering their first name and addressing them by it when the situation permits Montecito bank and trust has been a great place for me to bank with since I first signed upAnd I'm thrilled to share with you all my experience Another thing that I should mention... Montecito bank and trust is very active in helping out around the community..And getting involved in local organizations Your banking with them goes a long way!!!”

“Today the 22nd of December,I finished my first transaction of my New bank and everything went very good, I got a good recommendation from the Mgr. Daniel and he talked to me into parking my money here, all I needed to know was all the info he gave me to make up my mind was the interest my money would have in the savings here, and it’s much better then the major banks like Chase, B.O.A. Union bank, so I am happy I made this choice, Daniel is a good Mgr. There and will make you feel better after you talk to him and you decide to bank here at First Bank, and now I’m glad I’m part of the First Bank family now?, My money is in good hands,Five star in my book⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

“​​"Behind every great community is a great bank" If you are looking for personable customer service who strive to get things done quickly, this is an exceptional bank. My company was with Silicon Valley Bank for six years and the disaster impacted our company along with other companies, share holders, and investors. MBT moved quickly to accommodate us with grace during this transition. Special thank you to Mark Campos and Lora Taylor.If you are looking for a bank that you can trust this is the place of a hidden gem.”

“I love this bank. Everyone is very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional, and they rarely have long lines. I have no idea why anyone would bank next door and wait in line for 30+ minutes to make a transaction...”

“I never write up banks but I had such a great experience here that I wanted to give them a shout out. SB is Covid-nuts and the requirements for indoor are beyond absurd. So the line was RIDICULOUS. It was 20 minutes! Apparently it's not about square footage (hello: social distance includes DISTANCE which means the giant stores should have different rules). But none of this idiocy is the fault of Wells. The security guard was great. He was open to chatting about why we were being detained in this manner. Of course the day I have a million marks to meet, the line is long. Days I have no time pressure, I walk right in. Turns out they had TWO out of 12 tellers working. Once I got inside I waited another 5 to 8 minutes, so it was 30 total by the time I reached the teller. I just needed a check, which I no longer order. The minute I got to the teller, he apologized for what he knew was an obscene wait. THIS IS CUSTOMER SERVICE DONE RIGHT. Other banks could take a page from the courtesy and professionalism of this branch. My home branch is Pacific Palisades and I love the tellers there. I have no use for that hipsterish security guard, however.”
