Testimonials

We specialize in commercial lending. But don't take our word for it! See what our business clients have to say about their experiences banking with RepublicBankAz.


Samir Yono, Owner, All American Sports Grill

"As a business owner, I've been with multiple banks for over 50 years and have never received such a high level of client service as I have from RepublicBankAz. Every loan request submitted was studied carefully and the approval was based on their guidelines but also on the experience of the client and their successes. Banking with a local bank who treats you like family makes all the difference."


Shahe Koulloukian, President, Mazvo, Inc.

"Being a small business owner and operator for over 19 years my primary focus has always been to build a lasting relationship with my clients and that is the same treatment I receive from RepublicBankAz. Everyone at the bank is enthusiastic, responsive and attentive to my financial needs. Banking and buying local benefits all of us in the community."


Jim LaBrie, Owner, Bug and Weed Mart Stores

"I switched from banking with an impersonal "big box, too-big-to-fail" institution and got a dramatically more personal and efficient experience from RepublicBankAz. I like keeping business and personal monies here in Arizona, and the service from RBAZ has been exceptional!"


James E. Gerdes, President, Industrial Refrigeration & Boiler Company

"Republic Bank and other community banks are essential to keep Arizona generated banking profits available for reinvestment in Arizona enterprise rather than being sent out of our local economy."

Aaron Klusman, Owner, Camelback Partners

"We were impressed of the responsiveness of RepublicBankAz towards our financing needs. Our commercial lender, Carlos took the time to understand our business model, and was able to create a credit facility which fit the needs of our development company."


Neal Parikh, Owner, Real Quick Trucking

"RepublicBankAZ was instrumental in alleviating the obvious financial stress related to purchasing my business. Management was always easy to reach and my questions were answered promptly. I would recommend RepublicBankAZ to anyone who is interested in receiving professional banking service coupled with individualized care."

Howard Peterson, Co-Owner, American West Construction and Development

"The banking team at RepublicBankAz has done and continues to do an outstanding job in taking care of my company's business banking needs. In today's world of large, national banks, it is refreshing to work with a local bank that genuinely cares about its clients. If your business is looking for a hard working banking partner, consider RepublicBankAz."


Joe Balbona — Commercial Plus LLC

Commercial Plus closed two commercial loans with Cody Cardon at RepublicBankAz in 2011 — we experienced excellent results. One example was a commercial loan for a large car wash property that several lenders were aggressively bidding for. RepublicBankAz quickly understood the borrower and property, jumped over time wasting hurdles and funded the loan inside 30 days — as promised — to close a very tight escrow. Outstanding.
