President – Kenzley Title Group, Inc.

I needed to get a home equity line of credit for some upgrades. Leah fast tracked the process and came in under her own time estimate to get me funded in time to coordinate various vendors and have all the projects completed before the full swing of summer.

Having a local bank like Byron Bank always makes the closing on real estate easier for everyone involved. Byron Bank has knowledgeable staff that not only understands lending, but makes sure they understand our needs and those of the customer.

Kevin Rudy

CEO - Kenzley Title Group, Inc.

We were referred to Byron Bank when we did a refinance on our home. We were very pleased with the service that Vanessa provided to us during that process and subsequently when we received a home equity line of credit. They made it easy for us; very prompt responses to our questions and their secure email systems makes it easy to communicate and scan documents.
