Southeastern Integrated Medical, PL looked to BBVA Compass
"Our business was growing very quickly. We were working with one of the larger national banks and had grown increasingly frustrated by their bureaucracy. A friend referred me to BBVA Compass. I called a relationship manager on a Friday afternoon with a proposal for a real estate transaction. I told him I needed an answer by the next Monday afternoon. And he delivered!
Since then our business has continued to accelerate - on average, we've grown 18-20% a year for the past 10 years. BBVA Compass has helped us finance a number of real estate transactions; we now operate more than 170,000 square feet of offices in seven cities throughout Central Florida. Their treasury management services help us manage our cash. We leased a number of very expensive pieces of medical equipment through them. The relationship runs deep and wide."
The BBVA Compass difference:
"We have to move quickly when an opportunity presents itself. That’s one area where BBVA Compass excels. They are very responsive to our needs. We usually deal with one point of contact, but he will introduce us to key people within the bank whenever an opportunity requires a specific expertise.
We will talk about our needs and our deadlines. BBVA Compass does a superb job meeting those deadlines. When you call, they get an answer quickly. We deal with the people who make the decisions about our business. They will listen first, but speak frankly whether they can make a transaction work. They have proven that they will keep working until we reach an agreement that works for everyone. That’s the main thing—they've earned my trust."
