The Gateway to Local Banking

This Local First Arizona member spotlight is on Gateway Bank gateway-buildingYou take your “I’m a Localist” badge seriously, committed to shopping and supporting locally run businesses. But have you given thought to banking locally? One of the biggest steps toward strengthening your commitment is managing your finances with a bank that also supports and believes in similar philosophies. The perks of moving to a local bank definitely surpass the finally written terms and conditions on most big box banks.

Gateway BankOne in particular is Gateway Bank, a full service locally owned bank based in Mesa. Gateway Bank represents a return to the old-fashioned way of banking, where the staff knows everyone by name and you are treated like a person instead of a number. Their passion for serving the community and small-town values drive everything they do, believing that everyone should be treated like family, that personal service should be provided to each and every customer, and that always doing the right thing and being proactive to help their customer’s reach their goals is a value that permeates its very foundation. They offer loans up to $3 million, a quick turnaround, local decision making and competitive rates. You will not be treated like a number and are there to build a relationship and provide the necessary tools to help your organization be more successful. Gateway actively finances Owner Occupied Commercial Real Estate, working capital lines, equipment loans and SBA 504 or 7(a) loans to mention a few.
