National Links Trust 
 "We were looking for a bank with local roots who understood the needs of the community and our business needs.  NCB's Construction Lending team worked to secure both a line of credit and term loan to finance the purchase of assets and equipment - this was vital to our success."
Sinclair Eddy, President and Chief Executive Officer
Red Peg Marketing
"NCB has great trust in our vision and where we want to go. We know we have a trusted partner who will help us work through how we are going to get there.  Renee Aldrich and her commercial lending team helped with the financing to launch our new drone company - that's a great feeling."
Brad Nierenberg, CEO and Founder
The GA Team
"When we decided to buy a building for our office near Union Station on Capitol HIll , Kathy Speakman assured me that NCB could help with the financing.  We also shifted our banking services to their digital solutions including moving our clients to electronic payments using their ACH service."

Annette Summers, President

Cornerstone Schools of Washington D.C.
"We use almost every digital banking service NCB has, but their Remote Deposit Capture service was a game-changer for us.  Our personal bankers, Stephanie Lipscomb and David Glaser recommended this time-saving solution so we didn't have to drive to the Bank every day.  We make deposits right from our office! "

Dean Luckenbaugh, Executive Director 
Tech24 Construction 

"NCB's flexible lending options and suite of online banking services helped my team expand our construction project portfolio.  When this project at 4111 Connecticut Ave came about their construction lending team stepped up to the plate.  They really understood our business - that's the kind of bank I want to work with."
Victor Bonomi, President and Founder 
The SaltLine Oyster + Ale


"We count on NCB to know community businesses like ours so we can serve up our best to our friends and neighbors in DC and Arlington."

"Our community relies on our business to thrive. We provide essential healthcare for children and provide employment to a significant number of single income families.  Thanks to NCB, we are thrilled that we can continue our service."

Dr. Arshia Shingler, DDS, MS


The Market Lunch at Eastern Market



"My dad started banking with NCB in the late 50's, so our history goes way back. The sense of family is why our family recommends NCB to other local businesses - it's a great service institution."

Tommy Glasgow, Owner, The Market Lunch

Cap8 Doors & Hardware


"As a women-owned, minority business, our company has filled a void in both the construction environment and in our local community. I leaned on the relationships I had at NCB to secure our PPP funding – keeping our doors open so that we could continue to serve the business community and our employees."


Lisa Williams, Cap8 Doors & Hardware
