We recently spoke to Sylvia Bernstein, one of the owners of Value Place Lodging in Homestead. She took us on a tour of the facility and told us all about her relationship with the bank. Here's what she had to say in her interview:
“Value Place is a special kind of lodge. Our guests are here for an extended amount of time, with the typical stay around 3 months. Some guests have been here over a year due to the line of work they are in. We really get to know our guests and our lodge becomes a “home away from home” for them. It is important to us that our guests are comfortable, safe and relaxed. That’s why we have a secured entry, a full service generator on-site and the building is safe for a category 5 hurricane. We have a friendly and attentive staff. Each studio has cable, internet availability and a kitchenette with a full size fridge.
We’ve been open for over two years, and our banker Julie has been a huge help getting us acquainted with the area. She is always sending us prospects and understands we want to be part of the community, so she has introduced us to local business owners, and given us opportunities to partner with civic organizations. We’ve dealt with many bankers before, but none like Julie Romero. She’s amazing, always on top of our requests and she always follows up. She puts the community in Community Bank and we feel we are in the best hands ever!”
