Business Education is important to me.
This is why I have created a video series in order to help you through the lending/purchasing process.
Business Owners deserve a Commercial Banker that is a strategic advisor…not just a banker.
My name is Paul Long, and I am someone that you need to have on your business “team”. I partner with a local well known Credit Union as SBA Lending Manager, my goal is to assist small businesses with restructuring their balance sheet, purchasing equipment, acquiring another business or stop renting and purchase commercial real estate.
Customers that I tend to help the best have these characteristics:
- Business annual sales from $500,000 to $20 Million
- Commercial Real Estate (51% Owner Occupied) with loan amounts as low as $250M and up to $5.5MM
- Business that have been around for over 2 years and with loan needs above $50,000
- Looking to use SBA Products that provide low down payment while keeping cash in the business
I have a difficult time helping:
- New Businesses (Under 2 years in business)
- Land purchases where there is no construction or not used for business purposes
- Businesses outside of my service area (see map)
What I believe:
- Business Owners deserve a Commercial Banker that is a strategic advisor…not just a banker. I believe that having a great banker is often more important than the bank itself.
- With over 24 years of Business Banking experience in both small and large banks and credit unions, I think strategically and seek ways to understand how today’s decisions will impact you tomorrow. I am passionate in helping business owners understand business finances and how to get what you need.
I look forward to partnering with you!
Don’t take my word for it – here’s what my clients and partners say:
Your knowledge of the process and your expertise are very good. You also make customers feel welcome and very comfortable throughout the process.

Paul is the very best banker I have ever dealt with. He is very accessible to his clients. I remember my dad saying when I was a kid that the banking industry used to have personal bankers that had community with their clients and eventually they become glorified tellers. Paul absolutely breaks that mold and shatters it. He is polite, kind, professional, courteous, through, quick and above all very knowledgeable.
I wanted to take a few minutes and thank Paul Long for pushing our SBA loan through so quickly and efficiently. I am personally very grateful for your effort and how you handled everything. You truly had the interest of our company. I recognize that you are extremely busy and for you to pursue our application with such diligence I cannot say enough thanks.
I am so grateful for all your hard work in helping me to get it all set up. You and your team went above and beyond the call of duty. When so many other Banks were caught flat-footed and unable to help their people, you guys did an amazing job! So glad to have you help me manage my business.
Paul is an excellent asset for my buyers as I am a Business Broker. He is quick to come to the table for a meeting, goes over the business in question (financials), is able to give his opinion and perspective, and gets the process
started ASAP. I love how he is always available, picks up his phone, and keeps all invested parties informed. You don’t see this kind of customer service from most Lenders, but Paul always goes above and beyond for his borrowers,
he is the best in the industry hands down!
