Community member and retired Lombard Battalion Chief, Chuck Ralis, told us that he is powered up by being financially smart.
Chuck has lived in Lombard since the 1970’s and was a member of the Lombard Fire Department for 28 years. Now, he is happily retired, and able to spend his time learning to play guitar, enjoying quality time with his family, and relaxing with his friends on periodic fishing trips.
Chuck began his relationship with West Suburban Bank when he realized his home was in need of some major repairs. He chose West Suburban Bank because it was a neighborhood bank that he felt comfortable with. Coming through in a clutch, West Suburban issued Chuck a home equity loan and he was able to make the necessary fixes, which in turn, tripled the value of his home!
Working with West Suburban Bank to get the loan and guide Chuck to make smart financial decisions, has put him in a better position as a retiree.
At West Suburban Bank, we are happy to power community members like Chuck. We wish him relaxation and and enjoyment in his retirement. Let us know what you think about Chuck’s story and continue to tell us, “What Powers You Up?” on Facebook and Twitter. #WSBPower

Community member and Quik Impressions president, Rick Smolke, told us that he is powered up by being the best business man he can be.
Quik Impressions is a commercial printer located in Addison, IL. The continually growing company found themselves in need of a bank that they could count on, and one that could take them to a completely different level. Rick Smolke, and his company, found a home with West Suburban Bank. Rick notes that West Suburban Bank truly believes in its customer, and if it weren’t for them, Quik Impressions would not be here today. With the power and support of a bank that allow its customers to dream, Rick Smolke believe that he and his company can accomplish anything with West Suburban Bank in their corner.
West Suburban Bank not only handles Rick’s business account, but the bank handles all of his personal accounts, children’s accounts, and retirement accounts as well. As Rick says, “he 100% trusts them [West Suburban Bank] with everything he has.”
At West Suburban Bank, we are happy to power businesses like Quik Impressions and community members like Rick. We look forward to watching Quick Impressions grow and helping them along the way! Let us know what you think about Rick’s story and continue to tell us, “What Powers You Up?” on Facebook and Twitter. #WSBPower
Villa Park community members, Sofia, Billy, and Gabriel told us what powered them up is being the best family they can be.
Billy’s parents opened a joint account for him when he was about 5 years old. At an early age, his parents taught him the importance of saving. With Sofia also being a big saver, the couple decided to carry on the family tradition and open their son, Gabriel, a savings account when he was just a couple months old. Sofia told us, “I’m a big saver and I want to instill that in him.”
Family is important to the Eisners, and they find West Suburban a bank that is very family oriented. With the convenience of being centrally located between a few different branches, the Eisners are able to spend less time driving long distances to their bank and are able to spend more time with each other.
At West Suburban Bank, we are happy to help power the Eisners. We look forward to seeing Gabriel grow! Let us know what you think about their story and continue to tell us, “What Powers You Up?” on Facebook and Twitter. Also, be sure to follow us on Instagram, we will have some exciting photo challenges later this year!
West Suburban Bank proudly extends their services with the addition of their 37th branch on the north side of Aurora at 1311 Butterfield Road, Suite 111.
On Thursday, October 10th,the newest Aurora location held its ribbon cutting ceremony and invited Aurora Chamber Members and Local Business Owners to join in on the festivities.
The event began with refreshments and a spread of finger foods for the guests to enjoy as they conversed amongst each other. Bank management and bank employees enjoyed having one-on-one time with their new neighbors.
Later, the ribbon cutting took place inside the branch. The group joined in on the excitement as the facility manager for West Suburban Bank/Lombard, Matthew Acker, cut the ribbon and inaugurated the opening of the newest Aurora, West Suburban Bank branch.
To wrap up the night of fun, West Suburban raffled off three cash prizes to the guests. An Aurora resident was the $100 winner.
West Suburban Bank looks forward to being a part of the North Aurora community.
Stop in and say hello to your new neighbors.
It may be a mistake to believe that you can’t refinance your home. Home values have stabilized and improved in many cases throughout the communities we serve at West Suburban Bank. Kevin Carani, Vice President of Mortgage Lending has seen the change occur over the past few years, saying, “We’ve seen a lot of people pleasantly surprised at the value of their home and we’ve been able to help a lot of people achieve their financial goals by going through the refinance process”.
We’re in touch with the communities we live and work in. Appraisers are in tune with what’s going on and they can see where values are trending upward. It’s worth taking another look. By stopping in for a few minutes and speaking with a Personal Banker at your local West Suburban Bank or calling 630-652-2000, we can review your current position and see if you just might be one of the many customers who are “pleasantly surprised” that you’re in a better position than you thought. It only takes a few minutes to get things started.
