In fact quite a bit. As Rhinebeck Bank Relationship Managers, one of our roles is to attract, retain, assist and empower our customers. The same holds true for business owners in their respective businesses. Over the years through interactions with business owners, we have realized that we do many of the same things in order to be successful, and I’d like to share a few of these things we have in common.

Unless you have purchased a newly constructed home there is always some uncertainty regarding previous “events” in a home. In the past, real estate transactions were based on “Caveat Emptor” (Let the buyer beware). Over time, however, certain exceptions have been established by New York courts that help protect buyers by increasing a seller’s risk of responsibility for undisclosed defects.
These days there are so many avenues to buy products online, but what about a car? In this era, shopping online for a car is becoming commonplace. You can easily scan through numerous options without having to drive around to multiple dealerships looking for what you need. There is even an assortment of websites that cater to online car sales. If you decide to shop online for your next ride, be sure you still check out your final selection in person. You can buy a car online but unlike a pair of shoes, you can’t return it if it doesn’t “fit.” Generally speaking, a car is one item that once you have purchased it, you’re stuck with it.

Here at Rhinebeck Bank we have an array of entry level positions. When we interview for these openings, many candidates state that they are “looking for a career, not just a job.” What does that mean? What is the difference between getting a job, and beginning a career? There may be no way to tell exactly what each candidate means when they say this. After all, it very well may mean something different to each person.
Do you remember your first job as a teenager? The happiness you felt at earning your own money and the freedom to pay for things yourself? Today, teens between the ages of 13 and 18 are most likely to babysit, mow lawns, or perhaps even have their own businesses on eBay or other sites. I know quite a few young entrepreneurs who make money by selling homemade doggie treats, glitter slime, and even buying sneakers and selling them online at a profit! Teenagers are finding new and interesting ways to earn money, so how can we help teach them to use that money wisely?
I get asked this question quite often when speaking with the public and it is a great question. In fact, sales people typically have a 30 second “elevator” speech prepared as a response when asked about the company they work for. In my opinion, as a Rhinebeck Bank Branch Manager, there is not an easy 30 second, answer I can give, and I’d like to tell you why.
Fall in the Hudson Valley is one of the most beautiful times of year! There are so many fun things to do and we want to share them with you!
(Not when working on your down payment and closing costs!)
Hopefully the vast majority of prospective home buyers know that they do not need a large down payment to purchase a home. There are a variety of low down payment programs including a few 100% financing options. But even with low down payment options many borrowers still need some help. One way to help is through the use of “Gift Funds”.
I had the honor of visiting the 9/11 Tribute Museum in Manhattan this past week. Mark Malone, VP Area Sales leader and I traveled down to film our 9/11 Tribute episode of Wake Up with Rhinebeck Bank. This experience was extremely moving. We saw artifacts from the tragic event, learned about 9/11 and heard from survivors. These survivors had so much to share.
