Kelley had Designs on a Permanent Office Space

Hint Design

When the time came for Harris Interiors to acquire some permanent office space, the large bank Kelley was a client of for years could not see the way to provide financing. That was when Kelley followed up on a referral from a friend to try Signature Bank. Like his business philosophy, Kelley wanted to enjoy a personal, customized relationship with a banker who would listen and provide unique solutions. Consistently working with the same core staff throughout the loan transaction provided a level of responsiveness that made him the priority. Kelley has not once regretted his move to Signature Bank; as a matter of fact, he’s referring his friends. Whether furnishing a new office space or furnishing innovative solutions to clients, both Harris Interiors and Signature Bank understand and embrace individuality and the boutique-style defined by seeing every client as uniquely different.

Restaurant loans are tough, but the SBA lending team at Signature Bank was very gracious, helpful and professional. They not only helped us correctly structure the loan, they were as excited as we were! They are like community cheerleaders for small business. Now we see them and their other clients all the time for lunch – and the partnership continues. They have become family. I’d highly recommend Signature Bank to anyone looking to start or grow a business in Sandy Springs – or anywhere else.

Signature’s President, Freddie Deutsch, and every member of his team expressed their genuine interest in my business opportunity from day one. All commitments made by the bank, were met. They didn’t allow the big bank bureaucracy to slow down the process. Our timeline was challenging, but they delivered. I can’t imagine I ever considered another bank.

For 17 years I’ve trusted my banker, Nicole Klein, with my financial needs and having her with a local community bank like Signature ensures she can continue to customize solutions for me. The respect, advice, and responsiveness I receive from Nicole and her team leave me confident that my practice and I are a priority. That kind of individualized attention is hard to come by these days.

Oscar and Azita Found the Big Banks Weren’t Interested

Oscar and Azita Garrett

Our tile & stone business seemed too small for the big banks. Then someone recommended Signature Bank. Their SBA lending team understands small business. They know time is of the essence – and they went beyond the call of duty to structure a deal that helped us buy the building we had been renting for years. They even showed us how to save money along the way. Having a personal relationship with the SBA team at Signature Bank is one of the best business moves we have made.

I had plenty of experience in physical therapy – but I had never owned my own business. I needed capital to make it happen – and I needed a bank to come through for me big-time. The team at Signature Bank took me under their wing…educating me, informing me, and going out of their way for me. In the end, I received a loan and terms that best suited my personal circumstances. A bank this committed to my business success was a dream come true. I’d recommend Signature Bank to anybody wanting to start or build a business.

I wasn’t happy with my old job, but I had a great love for beer. Then I thought: why not do what I love for a living? So I opened Hop City. When I was ready to open my 3rd store, I approached Signature Bank and they dove right in with my kind of enthusiasm. It wasn’t just about the numbers at all. Their lending team took a personal interest in my business idea, did their homework, and came back with an SBA loan that was exactly what I needed. Their holistic approach made the whole process easy. I recommend their lending team wholeheartedly.
