We believe in better banking, and we believe in you.
Southern National Bancorp of Virginia, Inc. headquartered in McLean, Virginia is the holding company for Sonabank, a state chartered bank headquartered in Glen Allen, Virginia. Our first branch opened on April 14, 2005 and we have quickly grown into a strong, highly profitable bank. On June 23, 2017, Sonabank and EVB, two historic and successful Virginia banks, came together following our transformational merger of equals. EVB’s history dates back to 1910, making them a leader in community banking throughout Eastern and Central Virginia. Both organizations share the mindset of not just building a bigger bank—but a better one for our customers, employees, shareholders, and communities. Our combined organization now offers 45 retail locations across Virginia, Maryland and the Washington D.C. area—making us the 5th largest Virginia based community bank with total assets less than $10 billion. We also have loan production offices in Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Chesterfield, and Warrenton, Virginia. Together, our customers have access to leading Commercial, Real Estate, and Small Business Administration Lenders, as well as the ability to choose from unique products such as mortgage solutions through our affiliation with Southern Trust Mortgage; Kasasa®, free checking that rewards you for banking; P.O.W.E.R.®, a program designed specifically for women in business; and Community Believers, a program designed for non-profit organizations.
We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with Zelle® coming June 11th.
Zelle® is a fast, safe and easy way to send and receive money with friends, family and others you trust. You can receive money directly into your bank account in minutes.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day!
As a reminder, all branches will be closed in observance.

We have already begun working on closing documents and we will not stop working until we close your loan and provide your funding.
We understand that businesses throughout our community and nation have been looking to the Paycheck Protection Program for assistance during this challenging time. We are very grateful for the opportunity to participate with the SBA on this effort and deeply value the relationship with each of our customers.
