As a community bank with the products and services of a large bank, Flushing Bank provides exceptional customer service with a highly personalized touch. Our philosophy and approach to banking relationships is that we are “Small enough to know you. Large enough to help you.®” Across Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Long Island, we have distinguished ourselves as a leader in serving multicultural neighborhoods, and we proudly sponsor cultural and charitable events throughout our markets.
Going beyond what multicultural communities typically expect from a banking partner, our branches are staffed with bankers who can communicate in the languages and dialects prevalent within our customer base to help ensure a first-rate experience. Rewarding customers with personalized attention and bankers who can communicate in the languages prevalent within these multicultural markets is what makes the Bank uniquely different.
Nothing is more important to us at Flushing Bank than the customers and communities we serve. Since 1929, we have made a difference in the lives of generations of New Yorkers, helping people from every background to achieve their personal and business financial goals. We are connected to the communities we serve – and in which we work and call home – supporting diversity and inclusion and helping them to flourish.
Many of our managers participate as board members of local community organizations, and their active participation helps to keep us connected with the communities to support their economic and social vitality. We recently formed Flushing Bank Serves, a committee designed to connect employees with community organizations that need volunteers.
We are proud of our many employees who are actively involved in volunteer activities and community outreach programs, including a series of financial literacy initiatives that help maintain our CRA rating of Outstanding.
Our robust community involvement includes sponsorship of numerous cultural events and local organizations, including a Harvest Moon reception, Dragon Boat Festivals, Neighborhood Housing Services, United Way of Long Island, and Charles B. Wang Community Health Center in Flushing.
Our focus is to invest in our communities while helping those around us thrive. We have built our business on relationships and delivering relevant value to our customers and communities, and we are committed to building rewarding relationships. As an Equal Housing Lender and leader in real estate lending, the Bank’s experienced lending teams create mortgage solutions for real estate owners and property managers both within and outside the New York City metropolitan area.
