“Your family certainly achieved that goal of creating a client-centered culture at ONST. I taught school 44 years, and worked two jobs for 20 of those years. Perhaps I am one of the people your family had in mind to help when they began Old North State Trust. I am very thankful for my relationship with ONST.”



“Old North State Trust separates itself with service in every aspect of relationship management. There are many great local financial firms, however I don’t know anyone that offers a trust officer you can reach locally anytime the need for help arises. Old North State Trust has a state wide presence and a team that will travel when needed to meet face-to-face with clients as a routine practice even if a client does not live in the immediate local proximity to one of its many offices.”
