In the application phase, a lending team member will work directly with you to gather all information needed to prequalify you for your loan request. We strive to simplify the loan process, make it easy for you to provide your information, and keep you informed along the way. Technology allows us to give you real-time updates on loan status and offer direct interaction with your loan team members.

Here you will submit financial documents necessary for your loan approval. You will work directly with the Underwriter assigned to your loan. The Underwriter will gather your financial documents and learn your story, advocate for you and assist you throughout the review process. Specific questions regarding paperwork can be addressed directly to your Underwriter. When your loan is approved, you will receive a commitment letter with the terms and conditions of the loan.

Closing is the final phase of your loan. A loan closing specialist, or closer, will contact you to schedule a kick-off call. Your closer will then review all documents needed to complete the loan. Documents can be submitted as completed. Your closing team will also assist in reviewing document drafts prior to signing, to ensure all necessary information is included. We’ve automated this process to ensure efficiency and clear communication throughout the funding of the loan. Real-time, automated checklists are provided to illustrate your loan progress.

Over $400 Million in Healthcare Loans Funded, Let’s See What Our Borrowers Have To Say

“I needed a large loan, and Live Oak Bank was able to give me favorable terms. The closing was completed in approximately 60 days, which was quite different than any experience I’ve had with other banks. While I received personal attention throughout the process, I was blown away when I received an email from Chip Mahan upon closing my loan; he congratulated me and welcomed me into the Live Oak Bank family.”
Dr. Anil, Illinois
“When I learned that Live Oak Bank specialized in construction loans, I contacted them regarding financing to build my dream practice. Mike was able to come up with a customized loan solution and offered flexibility that commercial lenders could not provide. Every employee at the bank treated me as an individual and business partner – not as just another loan.”
Dr. Steve, California
“After being denied financing from multiple commercial lenders, I was fortunate enough to find Live Oak Bank. They believed in my abilities and allowed me to continue to run the practice that has been passed down in my family for three generations. My family and I are truly grateful.”
Dr. Marc, Oregon
