First Texas Bank, whose headquarters are in Georgetown, Texas, has above-average customer service access with all-day support available, great for getting help during the work week. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. With a commendable 4.4 out of 5 stars, First Texas Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. First Texas Bank has a complete suite of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products.
