live oak bank business advisory loan


Business Advisory Group

Live Oak Bank offers superior, quality service throughout the life of your loan.

We do not leave you unsupported after the loan is provided. You have continued access to a dedicated Business Advisory Group member at all times after you’ve received financing. This is one example of how we’re different from other traditional lenders.
The Business Advisory Group member has constant communication with your Loan Officer, Underwriter and other team members throughout the process. This makes the transition and continued service seamless to you. The team member will maintain a close relationship with you, becoming a trusted resource when making strategic business decisions.

Live Oak now has assigned us a personal banker to look at our books quarterly and makes sure we are staying on track. I like that. It means I’m more than just a number on a page. It means Live Oak Bank is invested in helping me succeed.

My interaction with Live Oak Bank has been on a very personal, friendly basis. When you remove what you expect from a relationship with a banker, and you get someone who is willing to work with you as a partner, you are going to find that your business goes to a place you didn’t know it could go to.
