"The account I have now with Katahdin Trust I’ve had since high school. I’ve stayed with them ever since. They can do all the bells and whistles of the big corporations, but they’re small enough that they know who I am and they know what my needs are. We do pride ourselves on customer service and I think that means a lot to people. They know they can count on us, just like we can count on Katahdin Trust."

"It takes a lot of people behind the scenes to do what we do. We started working with Vicki Bessette at Katahdin Trust and we've grown into a great team. We do probably five or six construction loans a year and we couldn't get to where we are without them, so we appreciate what they do. Owning a construction business, we're constantly trying to solve problems and Katahdin just does what they say they're going to do and we don't have to worry about it."

"We knew we wanted to deal with a local bank, so we chose to bank with Katahdin Trust. When we met with Katahdin, they helped us throughout the whole process. We've worked with employees at both Bangor locations and they've all been phenomenal and very down-to-earth.

We get all our loans through Katahdin Trust and it's really an easy process. At the beginning of our business, we didn't qualify for a lot of loans but they were creative and found a way to make it happen for us."
