Decide which bank is best to contact: large national or small regional. Smaller banks can offer more personalized and affordable services. Large banks have more financial services and opportunities for cooperation, as well as more ATMs in the area.
Visit the local branch of the selected bank and evaluate its level of service. If you notice disappointed customers or incompetent employees, you should think again before opening an account there. If your friends or acquaintances have an account in any particular bank, ask about their opinion.
