WALL STREET WATCHDOGS: Anyone looking for an honest bank in the area with a sound historical pedigree (this bank has been around since the 1840s), open an account here. They offer free checking, no minimum balance, and friendly customer service. Also handy are branches in the Charlottesville and Washington DC areas, and free ATMs at all SHEETS gas stations. A GREAT LITTLE BANK, I am happy to be a customer here, and so will you!!!
I move almost every year and I travel frequently, but this BoA location remains my favorite! The people are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and they are very efficient at what they do. Every time I am in Charlottesville, I stop in this branch to take care of my banking needs.
