Up until about a month ago, this blog prominently featured a single person as the face of our company. We’ve fielded quite a few questions about what the departure of our former CEO means for Mercantile going forward, and the short answer is that nothing changes.

But there’s a longer explanation that we’d like to give you by way of video so that you can know and see a little about what goes on behind the scenes here at Mercantile. What we do for our small business clients has been a team effort from the very start. We’re known as “the 504 Experts” (plural) and we’re a hardworking group of people dedicated to providing the best service and experience for our small business clients.

Let us know if you have questions about who we are, what we do, what we’re about, or how we can help you or your small business clients. Email us at, call 1-866-622-4504, or leave a comment below. We’re all ears.

    Well done.

  2. Evelyn Alms says:

    I’ve been in the real estate business since 1998, and my partner is a retired architect. We are forming an LLC and would like to flip real estate property. Do you have a program/financing for that kind of business.

    Thank you

      Great question Evelyn.

      We only offer and specialize in the SBA 504 Loan. The 504 is reserved for small business owners/entrepreneurs looking to purchase an existing piece of commercial property or build a building to house their business. In order to qualify, your business would need to use a majority of the space on a daily basis.

      Financing properties to be flipped isn’t something we specialize in, so we’re unfortunately not going to be the best lender for this type of project. A community bank in your area, that knows the area and market very well, would be your best bet.
