Beginning Again – 2017

Mercantile Capital Corporation Beginning Again 2017

Change is on all our minds right now. It’s still a relatively new year, and we (maybe) still have some resolutions that haven’t bitten the dust yet — things we want to do or stop doing or do better in 2017. We’re hoping these changes add up to improved energy, health, finances and life in general.

For our part, we don’t anticipate a lot of changing for our business this year. Well, we hope to do more loans in 2017, but we’re going to continue doing what we’ve always done: provide smarter commercial real estate financing for small business owners.

Happy Holidaytimes from Mercantile Capital Corporation!

This is a busy time of year for a lot of reasons, so this will be quick. Also, you should be doing something festive or fun or family-oriented instead of reading this email. We just wanted to wish you and yours Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

If you have a question about SBA 504 loans, the 504 refi program, construction loans, or anything else we might be able to help with (you’d be surprised at the amount of Star Wars trivia we know), just call or email. We’ll be closed December 26th and January 2nd but other than that, we’ll be here doing what we can to answer your questions and get our clients’ 504 loans approved, closed, and funded.

All in all we have a lot to be grateful for this holiday season. We’re looking forward to 2017 — and if that includes working with you and/or your small business clients, then all the better.

Wishing you the Happiest of Holidays, the Merriest of Christmases, and the Newest of Years!

IBERIABANK and Mercantile: Brewing the Perfect Partnership

Islamorada Brewing Company, brewing success with Mercantile Capital Corporation and IBERIABANK

Since our merger with IBERIABANK a year and a half ago, we’ve closed a total of 15 SBA 504 loans together. One of those loans was a $3.96 million project for Islamorada Beer Company, originated by Scott McCleneghen, Commercial Group Manager in IBERIABANK’s Southeast Florida office. Since Islamorada’s brand-spanking-new production brewery is located in Fort Pierce — a mere two hours from our Mercantile headquarters — we decided to stop by and get a first-hand look at the new facility.

Ten Thousand Jobs for Small Businesses

10,000 jobs

Political candidates like to talk about creating jobs. We like that kind of talk, but we also like actually creating jobs. We’re really excited to tell you that we’ve now had a hand in creating and retaining more than 10,000 jobs (10,220 to be exact) for small businesses across these United States.

One of the reasons we’re so passionate about the SBA 504 loan program is that job creation/retention is a main component. It’s designed to help business owners create jobs though commercial real estate ownership, and that’s something that really makes what we do worthwhile.
