SBA 504 program helps Steadfast Construction buy a new warehouse space without “breaking the bank”

Thanks to the SBA 504 program, Marcus Alvarez and Eric Pestana, the founders of Steadfast Construction, Inc., are now the proud owners of a new, 2,704 square foot warehouse space in Pleasanton, CA.

Marcus and Eric always kept their business “lean and mean,” and they held off on leasing a warehouse space until absolutely necessary. But as soon as they leased their first space, they realized they needed even more space to accommodate growth. The company currently has 15 employees and expects to double in size within the next two years.

Eric and Marcus now feel secure about the future, but they probably wouldn’t have been able buy their own building without the SBA 504 loan.

“What the 504 loan enabled us to do was to be able to put ten percent down on a warehouse that wasn’t going to break the bank,” said Alvarez. “The 10% down payment was a huge factor for us.”

Pranger Law, a San Francisco-Based Intellectual Property and Advertising Law Firm, Buys New Office with $1,070,000 SBA 504 Loan Arranged by Capital Access Group

Capital Access Group was delighted to help Holly Pranger, owner of Pranger Law PC, leverage the SBA 504 program to buy a new 1,369 sf commercial location with a $1.1M loan. This was Holly’s second commercial space purchased using the SBA 504 loan program.

Holly took out her first SBA 504 loan when she realized the amount of money she would need to lease a space would be close to a mortgage payment. Later, when another location in the same building became available, Holly knew that she couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

“I worked with Capital Access Group twice,” said Holly. “I expected things to be challenging, but the process was pleasant and easy. I would never go back to leasing office space ever again. When we are ready to expand again I’ll go back to Capital Access and say, get me another business loan!”

Win-Win Tech Ventures “gains confidence” with new building purchased in $12.9M financing project

Capital Access Group was pleased to help Win-Win Tek Ventures secure $12.9M in financing to purchase a 101K s.f. building at 691 South Milpitas Blvd in Milpitas, CA. Win-Win Tek Ventures, a cloud and analytics software and IT services company, currently employs 150 people and hopes to create another 150 jobs because of the growth enabled by the new building.

Win-Win’s ambitious growth strategy would not be possible without the SBA 504 loan. “Frankly, if the 504 program wasn’t available, we would continue running the business as we do now, with no growth, no additional employment, and no contribution to the local economy,” said JP Vejendla, CEO, Win-Win Tek Ventures.

Comfort Inn Taps 504 Refi Program to Reduce Monthly Mortgage Payment and Secure Lower, Long-Term Fixed Interest Rate

Capital Access recently helped the owners of Comfort Inn Red Bluff lower their monthly mortgage payments with a $3.7M loan through the SBA’s 504 Refinance Program. The management team wanted to refinance their debt, because they were “facing a huge balloon payment” with their existing commercial mortgage.

“We now have a lower interest rate and a fixed payment for the 20-year term of the loan,” said Surat (DJ) Deol, co-owner, Comfort Inn Red Bluff. “Now, we’re set, and after 20 years, we’ll have everything paid off.”

“My hat’s off to Capital Access for their amazing work,” said DJ. “They were on top of everything, and they worked closely with us to make sure we met our deadlines and got all of the paperwork in on time. They did a great job.”
