We understand your personal banking needs are unique, so we offer a comprehensive range of products. Whether it’s managing your day-to-day banking, purchasing a new or used car, remodeling the basement, or putting on that new addition, GRB can help.
As a residential mortgage provider, GRB has the pleasure of helping hundreds of individuals and families buy homes each year. As we begin the new year and feel the temperatures dropping outside, it's hard not to think about those who cannot come home to a warm, safe home. In Rochester and Monroe County, those who are homeless number in the hundreds on any given night.
To help the Open Door Mission, one of our community's leading resources for the homeless, GRB Mortgage will donate $25 for every home mortgage application taken in the month of January 2017. GRB is also collecting donations of coffee, sugar, paper products, bath towels, socks and underwear for men, boots and clothing for women and children, men's flipflops and twin bed sheets. The donation box is in our lobby at 1850 South Winton Road.
Whether you are shopping brick and mortar or online, making sure you are able to do so in a secure manner and as easily as possible is crucial. Please note the following tips:
More Merchants are Requiring a PIN with Debit Transactions - In an effort to reduce fraud, many merchants are requiring that debit card users input their Personal Identification Number (PIN) for transactions. This may be a new policy for merchants that have never required a PIN or signature for debit transactions in the past. Make sure you know your PIN if using your debit card. If prompted during a transaction, still select "debit" at the merchant's terminal then enter your PIN.
Stay Safe from Fraud when Shopping Online - During the holidays, you may significantly expand the number of merchants you deal with online. This can provide additional exposure for fraud. The Federal Trade Commission recommends a number of simple safeguards for online shopping to keep your financial information secure. Please see the additional article on our Blog for details.
“Appearing on the Top 100 list is a tremendous honor. This year, I cannot say enough about the employee team here at GRB. Through the move to our new headquarters and all the growth in our business, they remained focused and continued to deliver the high level of personal service that sets us apart as a community bank,” said GRB President and CEO Phil Pecora. “We are also pleased to note that quite a few of our partners and customers were also recognized on this year’s Top 100 list. It is a pleasure to work with quality organizations that have made such a positive impact on our community.”
The Top 100 program recognizes Rochester’s reputation as a region of innovation spurred by a strong entrepreneurial spirit. To be eligible for the Rochester Chamber Top 100, businesses must be independent, privately held, headquartered in the nine-county Finger Lakes region, and have revenue of at least $1 million in each of the three most recent fiscal years.
The 2016 Rochester Chamber Top 100 companies combined for nearly $14 billion in revenue and employed more than 104,000 people in the last fiscal year.
