“We would like to express what a pleasure it was working with Cindy [Cindy Santilena, Vice President - Business Development at TMC Financing]. Cindy and her team were remarkably proficient, very professional and customer service oriented, and they made sure the loan process went incredibly smoothly. This was so helpful since we are small business owners and were extremely busy throughout the entire process. TMC and our bank worked so well together as a team and thankfully, we did not have to duplicate the paperwork. We will highly recommend TMC for the ease in which we were able to obtain the SBA 504 loan.”

“What I really appreciated in working with TMC was that I was given very individual attention that was very consistent, with one key person to work with, whereas very often when working with banks I’ve found that you end up with three to five different people involved in the process, and that can lead to some miscommunication”

Jason Lee, President
“TMC and their team were great to work with. They helped us secure a 504 SBA loan to buy our new corporate office building in Las Vegas. Without their help, we would not have been able to secure the funding required to make a purchase like that in this financial environment. Not only were they a pleasure to work with but they turned it around in record speed which helped me secure some of the lowest financing rates ever. I highly recommend TMC and their SBA 504 program to anyone considering financing. ”

“I want thank you all. Without SBA it is not possible for a small business like us to obtain such large loan, especially with the current economic situation. I want to thank TMC very much for bringing the possibility to me (I had never heard of this program before). I want to also thank the U.S. government for offering such wonderful resource for all small businesses.”

“My relationship with TMC spans 14 years and three separate loans. We have just completed the move of our restaurant onto Fourth Street in Berkeley. Given the financial crisis this was a Herculean effort, which I don’t think would have been possible without TMC’s guidance and expertise. The growth of my business has been due to our real estate acquisitions and TMC has been a vital part of each of those transactions. I have come to rely on them as being a vital business partner and advisor especially when it comes to our real estate holdings. ”

We had an extremely complicated loan, with 9 parties, and a very limited time to close escrow. The TMC team pulled off an amazing collection and review of literally hundreds and hundreds of pages of supporting documents, coordinated with our purchaser, loan agents, and met our deadline. Your team was outstanding in every way, courteous, competent conscientious and always completely professional. We thank you all immensely for making our new office possible! ”

“I was actually quite nervous about applying for the SBA loan, but that all changed within 10 minutes of being at the TMC offices. We were greeted with a wonderful smile, given a great tasting coffee and then walked through the process with great ease by the staff. I remember getting back on BART and being amazed at what a wonderful time I had just experienced. I’m not sure if all SBA loans go as well as ours did, but I do know the TMC team treated us like royalty and made the process unbelievably easy. It is rare in this age to be able to give a completely positive recommendation, but TMC definitely has earned mine.”

“Working with Lou Scarpa and the TMC staff was a pleasure. They made a process that I thought would be extremely paper-intensive seem easy. The SBA loan allowed us to purchase and renovate a 34,000 square foot building to bring our vision of a Family Entertainment Center that’s “created by parents for parents” to the San Francisco Bay Area. We couldn’t have done it without their help.”
