Personal and Business Banking Solutions.
We know not everyone needs the same things or uses the same resources a local bank in the Kansas City area offers. That’s why we make it easy to manage all your accounts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Not to mention competitive rates on accounts and loans.
We know you have a lot of options when it comes to local banking in Kansas City. Big banks will make it sound like they have more to offer but without a personal connection. When a bank becomes big enough, the customers become nothing more than account numbers. They won’t recognize your face when you walk into the building or your name over the phone.
At Cornerstone Bank, we pride ourselves on our personal relationships with our customers. We have spent years building products and services that fit your local banking needs in Kansas City.
When it comes to your banking needs, we know it is personal. Whether you are opening your first account, purchasing a home, getting your kids ready for college, or planning for retirement, you want to know that your bank is your biggest financial advocate. Our primary goal is to provide you with the tools and guidance to ensure the most success possible.
We know how difficult it can be to gain success, as in your business. A lot of things have to go right for a business to grow, and it takes commitment from the founders, employees, and strategic partners. At Cornerstone Bank, we work tirelessly to be the best local bank, not just in Overland Park, but in the entire Kansas City metro area. From cash flow, to payroll, to taxes, we love assisting our customers with the complexities that running a business requires.
There is no better partner for commercial business than one that shares the same community. A local bank is going to have a better understanding of the Kansas City area and its needs. They have a much greater vested interest in local success because they truly care about their community. You’ll never just be a loan number when you bank with Cornerstone.
