Days after its acquisition by Stonebriar Commercial Finance, Real Estate Group has completed the financing of a 145,000-square foot Industrial Warehouse facility in Los Angeles, California. The subject property will enable the borrower, a specialty produce distributor, to add additional staff and continue to drive its growth. NBL’s loan included capital for the addition of solar panels, improving the property’s energy efficiency and thereby qualifying the entire project as an SBA “Green” project. The SBA’s standard limits on loan amounts do not apply to Green projects.
NBL partnered with So Cal CDC to fund the SBA 504 Green project in just under 3 weeks. NBL’s close relationships with Certified Development Companies (or “CDC’s”) throughout the nation helps ensure fast and efficient execution. Curtis Valenzuela, NBL’s President, spoke highly of the project stating, “We are excited to have delivered for this customer, who came to NBL frustrated with the process of other potential lenders. With the help of So Cal CDC, the NBL team moved quickly to approve and fund the project.”
With the capital resources now provided by Stonebriar, NBL has greater flexibility and surety of execution; evidenced by the fact that NBL served as a single source for both the 2nd Lien Interim Loan and the 1st Lien Mortgage. According to Stonebriar CEO Dave B. Fate: “The ability to service all aspects of a 504-supported transaction while not being limited by size restrictions is a differentiating factor for NBL. That, combined with Curtis’ and his team’s in-depth knowledge and experience, allows NBL to deliver every benefit of the SBA’s program to his customers.”
Travis Bell, NBL Loan Officer added, “This project is a very strong statement about NBL’s financial strength and ability to meet the Borrower’s needs in a timely manner, regardless of the size.”
