Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service Reestablished my account with Fairwinds and can honestly say it was the best decision I’ve made lately. Smooth, easy transaction and amazing customer service. Love walking in to my local branch and being greeted by name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Been using banks for a long time, only to change it as they made things more and more complicated and expensive. Moved and chose Fairwinds as my banking solution. Easy to use, friendly service and so far not one complaint, better, I can finally say when my funds will be available, not just guess what cleared and what is pending....
