Why First Bank?

We know you have a lot of choices in banking, so why should you choose First Bank? Here are just a few reasons why we are second to none:

  • We are a locally-owned community bank that has been serving Southwest Florida since 1922 (87 years!).
  • We offer true local decision making on-site.
  • No transaction fees—that includes coin, cash, and check deposits as well as returned deposit items.
  • Our employees live and play here, own stock in our bank, and are personally vested in the success of our bank and customers.
  • We are actively involved in and support the communities we serve.
  • We give our customers the best of both worlds: hometown "know your name" banking with today's latest technology and services.
  • No automated voice menus when you call us—you actually speak to a human!
  • Extended drive-thru hours, including Saturdays (open from 8am-6pm M-F, and 8am-1pm Saturday).
  • 24/7 banking via ATM and real-time Online Banking with Bill Pay.
  • No charge from First Bank to use other ATMs.
  • We have low turnover. The average banking experience of a First Bank employee is 12 years. Our senior management team has over 175 years of banking and financial experience combined.
  • We will be providing the same great services next year, the next fifteen years and on. We have been around for 87 years and look forward to celebrating our 100th anniversary!
