Pleasanton is my favorite branch because every time I enter this bank the employees are all so professional and polite and take care of all my banking needs and questions. I feel welcomed and greeted and know I'm in such good hands and that my financial needs are being addressed and it gives me peace of mind to be connected to the best bank one can possibly find. Thank you Fremont Bank and Happy 50th Anniversary!
