I have been a customer for a while.  I put out feelers to other banks for this loan but nothing came back as favorable as what I could get at Salem Five.  Mrs. Kahr was wonderful to work with.  She made herself available to me any time of the day.  When I was in Tokyo near closing she went the extra mile to get in touch with a realtor I had used and persevered until the loan closed and closed on time.  I would be happy to tell others of my satisfaction with Salem Five.
