    Erick Caceres Celebrates 5 Years with Community Bank

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Community Bank of Florida is proud to celebrate Erick Caceres’ 5th Anniversary as a member of their Financial Family. Mr. Caceres is currently the Electronic Banking Department Manager. His main job duties include overseeing the bank’s online, mobile banking, ATM and debit card services. He is a valuable team member, with over 18 years of banking experience that includes time spent as a teller, personal banker, call center operator and trainer.

     Erick was born in Nicaragua and currently resides in Homestead. He attended South West High School and is currently enrolled in Miami Dade College seeking a degree in business. In his free time, he enjoys sports, outdoor activities and cooking.

     Excited about his anniversary, Erick stated, “Community Bank attracted me because it was the right size organization for me- it has the structure of a corporation, but the feel of a small company. I like that the bank is involved in the community and that I have opportunities to be promoted within.”


    SPOTLIGHT on Homestead Concrete & Drainage

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Our most recent South Dade customer testimonial featured Homestead Concrete & Drainage. They are a long time customer with a close knit family business. The president of the company, Alfredo Cordero, told us their story:

    "The Cordero and Apolinario families have been in the construction industry since the 1970s. We’ve built our business based on quality, integrity and reliability. We specialize in general construction, land development, concrete work, paving and drainage. We’ve had to change our company model as the markets and competition have changed, but our core values have always remained the same.

    We’ve been part of the Community Bank family since 1976. The ways we bank have evolved just as our business has, but the relationship has never changed. With online banking and our EZ Deposit remote capture machine, we never actually need to go inside a branch. When we need assistance, our banker Romey is just a phone call away and he is always willing to stop by. Recently we wanted to refinance a loan and Lisa made it easy for us every step of the way. It’s nice to know we have people willing to go the extra mile to save us money and make our lives easier.”

    Get Smart About Credit!

    Last updated 2 years ago

    National Get Smart About Credit Day is October 20, 2011 and Community Bank of Florida is urging customers to educate themselves on responsible credit habits.

    No matter your age or financial status, it’s never too late to get smart about credit, especially credit cards,” said Robert Epling, CEO and President. “Learning the basic fundamentals of credit provides customers with a foundation that will prove invaluable throughout their lives.”


    Community Bank encourages you to follow these Dos and Don’ts of Credit:

     DO pay at least the minimum due. This will help you avoid late fees and a rising interest rate. To pay off your balance quicker, pay more than the minimum due. If you are unable to make the minimum monthly payment, let your credit card company know so they can work with you to create a more manageable payment plan.

     DO be wary of anyone who claims they can ‘fix’ your credit report. No one can legally remove negative information from your credit history that is accurate. The only thing that can fix a credit report is time and a positive payment history.

     DO read the fine print on credit card applications. An application is a contract, so read it carefully before signing. Credit card companies are very competitive so interest rates, credit limits, grace periods, annual fees, terms and conditions may vary.

     DON’T feel pressure to get a credit card. If you don’t want one, simply decline the offer. The CARD Act 2009 introduced new regulation that stated consumers aged 18-21 cannot be solicited for credit. If you no longer wish to receive prescreened offers, opt out by calling 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) or visit .

     DON’T ignore the warning signs of credit trouble. If you pay only the minimum balance, pay late, use cash advances to fund daily living expenses or transfer a lot of balances you might be in the credit danger zone. Talk to a financial counseling organization or visit one of our financial centers to receive help regaining control of your finances.

     DON’T share your credit card number. Never give out credit card or personal information if you have not initiated the transaction. Be aware of identity theft and phishing scams that ask for credit card numbers. If you suspect that your identity has been compromised, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission by calling 1-877-ID-THEFT (1-877-438-4338) or visit


    We hope this helps you Get Smart About Credit, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
