Over 500 Construction Projects Funded, Let’s See What Our Borrowers Have To Say

Our Construction team is fully dedicated to your construction project. When you partner with Live Oak Bank, you won’t ever have to worry about customer service!

“I appreciate very much the way our account has been handled once the construction started. I also appreciate the speed in getting a check for the builders draw; I honestly thought we would have to call and beg for the money, but it has come extremely fast once we submitted the necessary information. I would highly recommend Live Oak Bank to anyone considering starting a professional business.”
David, South Carolina
“With the help of the Live Oak construction team, the process of building my dream hospital was easier than I ever imagined. The team helped me stay on schedule and was always available to answer questions. I was always treated as an individual and felt confident that the person I was talking to knew who I was and was familiar with me as a customer. I was very glad I chose to work with Live Oak Bank.”
Dr. Wendy, Ohio
“I am a general dentist and used Live Oak Bank to finance a tenant improvement construction project. It was a complex project with lots of simultaneously moving parts, and they were excellent to work with from start to finish. I would highly recommend them, especially for professionals who are venturing into areas that are not their expertise.”
Dr. Fred, California
