Working with TMC Financing has been amazing. Everyone is so helpful and patient. It was a long process, but it was seamless. The communication between everyone was great.

— Teresa Blea, Owner of Mio Pre-School

“This was like a miracle. I never knew about the SBA 504 Program, so I never thought I could afford to purchase property for the business. The 10 percent down payment and the low-interest rate made it possible. TMC Financing worked really hard for me to get the loan. My whole family is so thankful for that.

— Sandra Vargas, Owner of Santa Fe Park

Kurt was a tremendous help. This was uncharted territory for us so he led the way. He helped us get a competitive rate from the first mortgage lender and made sure we closed quickly to meet the seller’s deadline. He has been a fantastic resource for us.

— Jere Van Puffelen, Co-founder and President, Prism Logistics

Kurt was absolutely excellent. He was fast, communicative, and always clear. He worked smoothly with our other bank and even arranged the appraisals for us. His help and expertise allowed us to complete the project with efficiency.

— Manoj Vuriti, Safari Kid

TMC — and particularly Kurt Chambliss — are miracle workers. I work with a small LA based non profit that’s been hit hard by the economic fallout of COVID. We faced a serious financial crunch, and were striking out with getting PPP loans through our own bank. A friend of mine turned us onto Kurt at TMC. We contacted Kurt, and literally less than 24 hours later, he had our loan approved. I’ve never received that kind of hands on, responsive customer service from a bank ever. Thank you Kurt and TMC!

My happy client relationship with this company started just a week ago, and in that time they secured me a life saving PPP loan for my small company, and did the same for TWO Non profits serving un privileged kids, plus some individuals I referred. None of us even had a prior client relationship, and a couple of the loans were so small they probably practically lost money on doing them. Kurt Chambliss was incredibly kind, professional and responsive. From what I saw, these are GOOD PEOPLE. Their service just blew away BofA, Chase, PayPal, First Republic, and several others, just a world of difference on customer service and follow through. Incredible 24 hour or less turn time, alerting us when loan numbers were received at all hours, on and on. I don’t know yet what all services they offer, but this is my new go-to financial services company for whatever they do.

— Matthew Fraser, Owner, Education Unlimited

The SBA is stable, no-nonsense and has locked in rates which gives us projectable expenses. They share the forward-looking mentality that we have, which is encouraging growth and diversity. If you partner with a good loan expert like TMC Financing, they will help you see it through and that makes us a better company in the long run. There was no question or problem I had that I didn’t get an immediate response on…that makes us both win
