"Marian Development Group enjoys working with HOPE because it’s a true team member and not just a financial institution. As part of the team, HOPE works in good faith, providing mutually beneficial terms to bring projects to reality. Understanding the structure of more complex transactions makes Billie Wade uniquely qualified as its Executive Director to source innovative projects that member banks can take pride in.

"HOPE defines relationship banking. My friends at HOPE make efforts daily as team members and partners. However, beyond that, working with HOPE means that, as a client, I always know who is making the decisions. I know that when I call HOPE the answers I'm given don't come with conditions and/or caveats. HOPE works to build clientele confidence that allows candor from both sides that always works to an ultimate mutual goal. Also, a quality that has definitive meaning to me is that everyone in my office is treated with the same respect from HOPE that I am treated with. Furthermore, I have witnessed on more than one occasion HOPE stands firm when circumstances turn to less ideal. Any deal is difficult and challenging. It is incredibly reassuring that my lender is always part of the solution to whatever challenges present themselves."
