“Carter Barrett opened my first business account in 2006, he was patient with my lack of banking knowledge and courteous with his stewardship. Over the next 14 years Carter has not only helped with several accounts and a few loans, he has given me advice that has helped me succeed. I am forever grateful for the time he has invested in me.”
“The Affinity Bank family has been very good to us over the years. As our company has grown, Affinity has grown with us. I know that Ed Cooney and his team has our best interest at heart. I am grateful for our partnership.”
“I have known Carter for over 5 years and his advice and guidance have been invaluable! The knowledge and ability to take action to your banking or financial needs are second to his genuine desire to know he made you better than before you met him! Affinity Bank is lucky to have him as part of their incredible team.”
Dr. Aaron Swartz
“Securing a bank loan for the purchase of a dental practice can be an overwhelming experience. Affinity Bank first cared to know me as a person, and then recognized my ambitions to grow a pediatric dental practice to its fullest potential. Chris Cochran and his colleagues gained my trust because they met with me in person, realized my attributes, and showed good faith by offering a level of service that soared above and beyond the attempted efforts of big banks.
Affinity Bank’s support enabled me to feel confident in my decision to buy, assured my feeling of a secure investment, and best of all, allowed me to shine and provide the very best care for my pediatric patients.”
“Carter Barrett of Affinity Bank is the most client-focused business banker with whom I have had the pleasure to work. He took the time to truly understand my business and then went above and beyond to support the success of our business. From internal advocacy in support of business financing needs to teaching personal financial seminars at our advanced academy, no task was too big or too small. He is a shining example of excellent customer service.”

“I am a business man and understand the importance of good Customer Service. I like dealing with people that do what they say. My experience with Carter Barrett and Affinity Bank has been above expectation. They have come through on every promise. The community approach and attention to my needs has been impressive. Carter has been engaging, supportive, attentive and available.”
“My big bank really let me down when I needed help with PPP. Affinity Bank and Carter came to my rescue when I needed them most! I am very grateful and I will be with Affinity Bank for years to come.”
"Modern banking with an old fashioned feel. That’s how Affinity Bank was described by a colleague when we asked for a bank recommendation. Boy, was he right! We were looking for an investor friendly bank as our old bank had made it increasingly difficult to do business with them in the past few years. Enter Affinity Bank. They took the time to get to know us and hear our story. They were as interested in who we were and our past experiences as they were our future. We made the switch and have never looked back."
"Modern banking with an old fashioned feel? Absolutely!"
