PeoplesBank has been voted 'Best Local Bank' and 'Best Mortgage Lender' by The Republican/MassLive 2018 Reader Raves poll.

HOLYOKE, MA (October 2, 2017) – Voters throughout Hampden and Hampshire County have named PeoplesBank “Best Local Bank” for the fifth year in a row and “Best Mortgage Lender” for the sixth year in a row in the 2018 Reader Raves poll. The annual poll administered by The Republican and MassLive draws close to 70,000 voters each year.

“It’s these external awards and recognitions like Reader Raves “best of” that really validate us as an organization,” stated Thomas W. Senecal, President and CEO of PeoplesBank. “As a mutual bank, we strive to serve our customers and the community as well as support the environment and our associates growth and development. These are also the qualities that we believe separate us from other financial institutions and truly make us a top bank.”

PeoplesBank mortgage consultants strive to make finding the right mortgage easy and hassle-free for homebuyers. In addition to offering competitive interest rates, they provide a wide array of special programs from which to choose.

The bank will be honored at the 2018 Reader Raves celebration dinner held at the Log Cabin Banquet & Meeting House in Holyoke in October.
