"Focus on the Rochester Community" Topic of GRB Radio Interview

We are pleased to share that GRB Community Relationship Manager Chris Kiley was recently a guest on the "Business Voice" radio show on WYSL and hosted by the Greece Regional Chamber of Commerce. 

Kiley discussed GRB's focus on serving the Greater Rochester community and the bank's commitment to supporting and developing small businesses in the region.

In speaking with Greece Regional Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Sarah Lentini, Kiley emphasized the differences in working with GRB over larger banks.

"We’re 100 percent local, so our decision makers are in Rochester,” said Kiley.  “Our board of directors are local all businessmen so they can look at a business opportunity a little bit different than just as a banker - they can see the big picture.  We can be a little bit more flexible in our lending and how we structure a deal.”

If you missed the program, you can still catch the podcast at https://greecechamber.org/diyFiles/20171012.mp3.  Chris' interview begins at the 50-minute mark.

GRB Co-founder and Entrepreneur E. Philip Saunders Honored by RIT
GRB Co-founder and Entrepreneur E. Philip Saunders Honored by RIT

On Oct. 10, RIT's Saunders College of Business honored local entrepreneur, philanthropist and GRB Co-founder E. Philip Saunders with a permanent wall display at the college to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the naming of the Saunders College of Business.  Mr. Saunders' contributions to both the business community and to the community at large has been the cornerstone of his success.  As the president and CEO of Saunders Management Co., Mr. Saunders remains committed to enhancing the Rochester region.

In an article written by RIT and available at https://www.rit.edu/news/story.php?id=63918, Mr. Saunders explains the importance of his work with the Saunders College of Business:

“Giving back to the community is an important thing to do for a person who has been successful.  In the last decade, Saunders College has increased enrollment, attracted quality faculty and achieved high rankings.”

Enroll Now, Buy a Home Next Summer with First Home Club

Enroll now.  Save money.  Earn a $7,500 grant.  Buy a house in 10 months.  That's First Home Club with GRB.

A home remains one of the best long-term investments you can make.  To make it easier for first-time buyers to purchase a home, GRB and the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLBNY) work together to provide down payment assistance through the First Home Club.

The First Home Club provides $4 in matching funds at closing for every $1 saved in a dedicated First Home Club Savings Account at GRB, up to a total grant amount of $7,500.  Participants make monthly deposits into this account over a 10-month period and then use that money when the obtain a mortgage with GRB.  And for a limited time, GRB is also offering a $50 gift card upon enrollment and $250 off mortgage closing costs

The catch...we only receive a limited number of First Home Club enrollment spots each year, and we're coming to the end of the year.  Our remaining spots will go fast, but there is still time to get enrolled.  GRB handles everything in house, so it takes less than 10 business days to get approved!  

Buying a home is a significant investment, but GRB and the FHLBNY make it easier - and more cost effective - with First Home Club.
