If we’re building exclusively in Atlantic City, we figured best to be banking in Atlantic City too. It’s important to support local businesses. That said, our criteria limited our options pretty severely, especially since we wanted to find a regional (if not City-specific) bank.
We visited the three banks in Atlantic City that met our needs all in the same day so we could get a good feel for them. All three had pros and cons, but we went with the one where we received personal attention from the bank manager. She was friendly, thoroughly explained our options and assured us we would be working directly with her for our needs.
Ultimately, it was the personal touch that sealed the deal.
