Funeral home owner customer spotlight – Arkansas

On behalf of my entire organization, I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding job to everyone of you that had a hand in getting my loan approved, processed and completed in a very timely manner. The entire organization at Live Oak Bank has a well oiled humming machine that knows how to get things done!

The word “responsive” does not do justice to how efficient and reactive Bridget, Kate and Stephanie were in getting this deal done!  I can’t say thank you enough. This transaction will change the culture of our business and will allow us to grow and be more profitable than I could have ever imagined.

Last spring the bank we had been doing business with for the past 15 years decided that they didn’t want to do business with us anymore. I admit that we had a couple of years where the numbers didn’t look as good as we would have liked them to be. But we never missed a payment nor were we ever late. And after some tough decisions we felt we were finally on the road to recovery.

Unfortunately most banks really have no idea about the unique aspects of the funeral business.
