One day while in Tavernier, we stopped at Plantation Boat Mart & Marina to meet with the De La Torre family. The father, Elias II, started the business 16 years ago and now all his adult children, Elias III, Leslie and Dennis, manage the day to day operations. We asked Elias III to tell us more about how they became part of our financial family:
“My father met Bob Epling over 30 years ago when our family was in the Avocado business. In 1996 we moved to the Keys and decided to open Plantation Boat Mart. We called Bob, and within 10 minutes we had what we needed to get us started. Once our business was running, we told him all we needed were branches in the Keys and within a few years, they opened two.
We’ve had other banks try to persuade us to move our accounts, with promises of better deals, but we decline because of the relationship we have with Community Bank. We remember those who helped us and are loyal to people we can count on."
