Customer Feedback

The Construction Loan process with Vinton County National Bank was easier than we ever imagined. Our loan officer walked us through every step of the process and was there to explain every detail as we made our way towards closing. From our initial application, to closing, and throughout the entire construction loan life cycle, he has been there to answer all of our questions and provide support. I absolutely would, and do, recommend Vinton County National Bank.
- Shane & Joanne S.
We were new to the process of having a construction loan and felt we could trust our lender at our local VCNB office to help us navigate the process. She made the whole process stress-free. She kept in touch with us to let us know what we needed to do next. We would definitely recommend your construction loan to anyone and everyone. We found that extraordinary care was provided and would give the whole process a 10 on a scale of 1-10.
- Bob and Becky K.
I would highly recommend Vinton County National Bank to anyone who is thinking about a new construction loan. The process was quick and smooth and our lender went above and beyond to make our dreams for a new home stress free. I can't say enough great things about our experience with VCNB and its staff. We are so happy we decided to walk into Vinton County National Bank that day!
