  • Peoples Bank is truly a people’s bank. It’s customer care service is far superior to any of my previous banking experiences. Banker, Levar Thompson has been especially helpful and accommodating – no high pressure sales pitch or bait and switch tactics. Highly recommended!

  • I can’t say enough about the great service I acquired with Peoples Bank and especially Levar Thompson. For years I have been trying to refinance my home, in which for years my home has been upside down due to the housing collapse. I talked with many mortgage company’s the past few years about the HARP Program plus I had a second mortgage nobody would help with. This year I figured the market was in better shape so I tried again. Many mortgage companys were calling. I am glad I answered Levar Thompson’s call! I was very apprehensive. Levar set me at ease and got the ball rolling IMMEDIATELY. He was always very professional, always there to help you with the necessary documents. He knows the business!! And, helped smooth out any problems that arose. I consider Levar a Friend after all he did for me. Thanks Levar!

  • Levar Thompson was a pleasure to do business with. He was very helpful when we did not have any idea how to go about getting certain papers for the loan. Anytime we called or email with issues, he responded promptly. Given the opportunity, we would do business again with Peoples Bank. Thank you so much for walking us through this process.

  • Levar is a pro. He knows the business well and worked tirelessly to close our VA loan. The deck was initially stacked against him due to the fact that we were refinancing a mortgage through the VA on a manufactured home located on a farm in the middle of nowhere. To complicate matters our only water source was a well on the property.

    Levar guided me through the process of obtaining a copy of my DD 214 from Washington and the myriad of financial and personal information required by the VA over and above what lending banks require.

    The proof of Levar’s value and professionalism was evident when the VA rejected two well water tests. Throughout these setbacks and disappointments, Levar went to bat for us and encouraged us and maintained his cool and sense of humor when mine were at a low point.

    In summary, Levar was a joy to work with through a difficult process and although I have not net him face to face, I now consider him a valued friend. I would not hesitate to recommend him to a friend of mine needing help with a mortgage or refi.

    Thank you. Levar, for a difficult job … well done!

  • We are very thankful to Levar Thompson who successfully refinanced our home in less than 30 days! We had tried repeatedly for the past few years to refinance and remove our son’s name from the mortgage. We contacted several different lenders to accomplish this endeavor and were repeatedly asked to provide more documents as many months passed and no refinance was accomplished. Levar talked to us in early March and we settled on March 25. Great job! He accomplished what we thought would never happen! We highly recommend him and People’s Bank!

  • With any home purchase the stress level is high. We were lucky enough to get Levar Thompson as our Mortgage Banker which helped lower our stress level and Interest rate! He worked with us to get all the required documents correctly uploaded and helped us when we made a mistake. I would call and email Levar daily and in some cases hourly and he always responded. If that’s not customer service at the highest level I don’t know what is. It is true that your company is only as good as your employees and Levar makes Peoples Bank shine above all the rest. I would recommend all active military and retired veterans to use Levar Thompsons services for streamlining their VA loan or a new purchase. “Semper Fi”

  • Mr. Levar Thompson did the opposite of what the other company’s loan officers did, he explained income level requirements instead of having me submit all kinds of paperwork, then telling me something negative at the end. I waited until life changed, which it does, and contacted Mr. Thompson who helped my wife and me greatly!!!

His pleasant demeanor made you feel confident with his area of expertise. If I had to do any other banking in the area of Real Estate, I would consider consulting with this professional.

  • The first time I spoke with Levar I was skeptical because I’m not familiar with Peoples Bank. To my surprise, Levar changed my initial impression about the Bank and his professionalism in handling our loan is commendable. Even with the time difference, he called me after his regular work hours just to assure me that the loan process is going well. Levar gave me his cell phone number and told me I can call him anytime. Even with some minor issues, our loan was closed on target. We are so happy that we got a good rate and the loan refinance process was painless. Thank you Levar for all your help.

  • What an asset to your bank!!  I was researching mortgage companies and called to request information on refinancing a mortgage loan. From the first minute I was on the phone with Mr. Thompson, I felt comfortable. He went over the information I had provided him and was very patient and forthright when I asked for proof of identity, which he provided me with immediately. Unfortunately, refinancing was not an option. Mr. Thompson was very considerate to give me very helpful advice, and guided me in the direction towards solving my problem.

  • Levar,

    I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the extraordinary service you provided to my father and myself throughout our refinancing process with Peoples Bank. I first want to mention that I was referred to you after enduring seven painful months of being strung along by another mortgage company. No comparison at all, you completed my loan under forty five days. From the beginning to the end, I am truly impressed and thankful to you for the quality of service you provided us. Not one time did we have to wonder what’s going with the loan, what’s next, why is this taking so long or when will he call back. In addition, you were always very professional, pleasant, patient and prompt with your follow up calls. No matter how many questions I asked or even if I asked the same questions again, you took time answering my questions patiently as if I was your only costumer. Throughout this process I felt you were rooting for us and that you cared. That meant a lot to us. You mention several times, that you treat your guest as if they were your family. Indeed you did and we really appreciate you for that.
