Maria and Fernando Bernasconi met in their 20s in Argentina. In 2012, they moved to San Francisco, got married and began building their life together. Determined to become homeowners, they approached First Republic on the recommendation of a colleague. The moment Maria and Fernando met their banker, they felt welcomed, supported and seen — and their banker helped them get quickly preapproved for a condo. Confident in the Bank, they expanded their relationship, opening a savings account, setting up a high-yield certificate of deposit and refinancing Fernando’s student loans. Knowing their bank is strong and stable gives them confidence as they continue on their financial — and life — journeys.
