We distributed the following press release yesterday, and I thought you’d find it interesting. Despite all the continued negative talk about the economy and a “double-dip” recession, we at Mercantile are going gangbusters. The fact is that RIGHT NOW is a GREAT time to buy commercial property, and entrepreneurs everywhere are realizing it — so this demand is keeping us VERY busy.
Don’t hesitate to call me right away when you or someone you know decides it’s the right time to purchase commercial property. Yes we’re busy (as you’ll see from the press release below), but you can expect nothing short of an amazing experience when you work with us. Plus, I’m hearing more and more stories of people getting the runaround from other lenders. Why not start with us and save yourself some trouble? Even if we’re not able to help for some reason, you’ll get a quick “no” from us . . . which is immeasurably better than a long, drawn-out “maybe.” Call or email me right away — 1-866-622-4504 or email@example.com — so we can started working for you or someone you know. The sooner the better.
All that said, here’s the press release we distributed yesterday:

P.P.S. While you’re there, be sure to check out the pictures we posted from “Take Your Dog To Work Day,” which was on June 25th. We had some canine companions hanging around the office, and we also celebrated with a slew of hot dogs for lunch . . . which caused the day to become affectionately known as “Gut-Bomb Friday” around the office. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
