From beginning to end, the loan application process with Live Oak Bank was a very pleasant one. They helped educate me on what to expect throughout the process and what was needed from me to move it forward. Therefore, there were no surprises. This was very refreshing because the loan and closing process is already such a hectic stressful one. I am very grateful to Shannon and the entire team at Live Oak Bank for taking a chance on me, believing in me, and supporting me through this very big step in my life.”

I cannot say enough great things about the entire Live Oak experience. We went to a local bank first, a bank we have a 10-year relationship with, but were offered better terms by Live Oak. Start to finish, I was highly impressed with the team.”
