"I am a staunch believer in following your gut instinct, and immediately mine was telling me that I felt at home while I was at your bank. Everyone greeted me with a smile and said hello, which makes a huge difference in my overall experience. Thanks again!"

"Dan and Bank of PV Staff, Believe it or not it's been 5 years since I opened my Chiropractic practice. I appreciate you "taking a chance" on the new girl in town and we are proud to have served our community and look forward to the years to come! Thank you for your help! Yours in health,"

"The remote deposit at any US Bank in the country helps with my constant change of location due to my job. I have found it works especially well at the US Bank in Eagle, CO!"

"Dan, What a nice surprise, a lucky $2 bill that bought a Lotto ticket and guess what? Maybe you read about it in the newspapers or saw it on TV. Anyway, here is a small token of appreciation for your generosity, see enclosed check."
~ JA Sr. - January 2013
"Thanks for your timely response. The 'service culture' of the bank is truly (and sadly) unique. It will always be a professional and personal competitive advantage; as well as just the right way to approach business and life."
~ SP - June 2012
"Dan, Thank you very much for the Birthday Greeting. A pleasant surprise! My Father has always spoken highly of you and the personal & friendly service extended to him and my late Mother by EVERYONE at your bank. Keep up the good work, and thank you again for the Birthday wishes."

"Hey...thanks so much for your time and attention to this situation. This is why I absolutely love Bank of Prairie Village.
I plan to move back to Dallas in the near future...but I can tell you this...and please tell Dan, too - I will not be moving my accounts anywhere else. (Ahahahaha...for what that is worth...not that I am any Donald Trump or anything...smile.)
At any rate, thank you once more for your (always) exemplary assistance."

“I want you to know what a pleasure it is dealing with your Bank. I can’t believe the quality and friendly service that is extended to your customers. I was very surprised last Friday to receive a telephone call from one of your personnel wishing me a Happy Birthday for the upcoming weekend. Even more than receiving a phone call, I was quite surprised to get your kind letter on Saturday wishing me a Happy Birthday. I want to thank you and express my appreciation to you and your Bank for all the kindness extended to me.”

A couple quick comments. First, I appreciate your personal notes with “words of wisdom” common horse sense about business and life… no magic bullets. Some people have it or learn it or go through it.
Thanks for the Bichelmeyer book on how to do business. Again, lots of good old horse sense.
Handling business the old fashioned way, i.e., straight shooting honesty wont’ ever go out of style. Some people thrive on gimmicks thinking they’ll get something for nothing but end up getting screwed.
Observing members of your staff, they all look like people I’d like working for me."

"Thank you for you contributing to a very successful Drum Run 2010, organized to help start a drum line at Cristo Rey Kansas City. We had about 160 runners, and were able to raise close to $10,000. Thanks to the generosity of Meyer Music, we will now be able to purchase drums at wholesale prices. We have begun the process of choosing the drums with the students - that’s the part they seem to be really excited about. Additionally, we are setting aside funds for the proper instructions from experienced percussion professionals. With the wholesale pricing, we will have funds left over to hire a teacher for years to come. The best part of the entire project has been the outpouring of support from the SME community and the appreciation shown from the Cristo Rey students and staff. As Sister Vickie said on KCTV5, the drum line will do a lot to bolster the spirit of the whole school. The school’s first graduating class is this year, and your donation will go towards creating a lasting tradition as this school continues to grow. Thank you again for your generous donation to this worthy cause, I hope to see you at the Drum Run 2011."

“I don't know of another bank in the Kansas City where you open an account and receive immediate personal attention from the chairman. I am not easily impressed, but Dan Bolen has made a great impression on me. Because of his exceptional reputation as a businessman, it is no surprise that he is as personable as they come. It is clear that when you work with Dan you are working with an expert and a friend."
~ BC - March 2010
“The Bank of Prairie Village is the best bank in the world in my opinion. Dan Bolen is what makes it so special. He always sends special hand-written notes with your bank statements (which never includes added fees and charges). There are a number of events throughout the year at the bank that make you as a customer feel very rewarded for being a member. I would recommend the Bank of Prairie Village to anyone looking to make a change to a personable bank instead of the "big banks" that make you feel like a number.”
~ DF - February 2010
“Trusting Dan and the Bank of Prairie Village with my banking needs was the best financial move I have ever made. The attention and care that he gave me and my family made me feel like a good friend rather than a customer. He runs a top-notch organization with the highest quality, personable associates from top to bottom. . . . banking has never been so easy."
