Headquartered in New York, Popular Bank has branches and offices located across New York, New Jersey, and Florida.

Our Reputation

We have earned our reputation by meeting the special needs of our community association clients. As pioneers in making loans to community associations, we have grown through "word of mouth" with referrals from associations and management companies.

Our staff has been called upon to handle complex transactions and our expertise has allowed us to structure loans and financial services that provide opportunities and cost savings to homeowners. We’re here to provide you with exemplary service and solutions when you need it.

Our Knowledge

PAB is devoted exclusively to managing financial requests from associations, and our specialists have extensive hands-on experience providing financial services to community associations. We take pride in our commitment to the industry, with the average tenure of PAB’s core staff being greater than 20 years with the division.


One example is our program for recreational lease financing. We have provided a means of ownership rather than rental of facilities, often keeping the payments the same as the lease payment, and sometimes even reducing the payment.

Our Commitment

We believe a superior customer experience begins with a shared set of values that must shine through at every point of contact, every day, by every employee. We honor the trust our customers have placed in us, and believe it is our responsibility to demonstrate a caring attitude towards all of our customers every day. We give you our full attention to ensure your needs are met and respond quickly because we know your time is valuable. Above all, we appreciate your business and are committed to consistently provide the excellent service you expect and deserve!

Our Customers

Our many years of experience with Community Associations make us a leader in the industry. Our clients are condo and co-op board members who come to us for our reputation, and stay with us for our exemplary service.
