Live Oak Bank



Live Oak Bank was founded in 2008 to provide business loans to independent businesspeople in niche industries. Today, Live Oak is one of the largest originators of small business loans with one of the strongest loan portfolios in the country. We serve multiple industries, like Self-Storage, where owners face challenges obtaining financing.

What does that mean for you? Live Oak offers a fully dedicated lending team to the Self-Storage industry. Ingrained in the industry, we attend major trade shows and industry events, participate in state and national associations, partner with vendors and key distributors, visit self-storage developments nationwide, and make a point to give back to the industry whenever we can. Our lending team understands your business, which translates to a smoother, more transparent lending process.

Since Live Oak specializes in ground-up construction, we have an in-house construction team that works with the contractor, engineer and client. The team collects all construction-specific documentation, which includes contracts, complete construction plan and specifications, necessary insurance and a cost breakdown for the overall project. The construction team works in conjunction with the third party vendors to ensure that the project can be completed for the anticipated budget amount. The closer and construction team finalize all documentation simultaneously to get the loan funded.

The Live Oak technology-enabled back office creates an efficient loan process through funding. You’ll find our lending process unlike others: streamlined and transparent every step of the way. We pride ourselves on superior service, assistance and advice throughout the life of the loan.
