Centrust Bank Secures SBA Loan for Growing Therapy Practice

Updated: Jun 1, 2023

Sarah Stukas had always envisioned her therapy collective, Life Insight, would have its place in her local community. When the practice began to outgrow their current office, Stukas found the perfect location, a beautiful 100-year-old farmhouse. However, securing the property and renovating it turned out to be more difficult than she initially thought. After being turned down by a few different lenders, a trusted advisor recommended she reach out to Senior Vice President Tom Meyer at Centrust Bank.

“I chose to work with Centrust because they were willing to take a chance on me and my vision for what was possible for our practice. From the very first phone call, I felt like I had the support and a shared desire to create something amazing,” said Stukas.

Centrust Bank has always been dedicated to helping small to mid-sized businesses achieve their goals, whether it’s expanding their business, or purchasing real estate for a new business location, they are here to help scale businesses. With the help of Centrust Bank, Stukas are now able to renovate the farmhouse to create a warm, engaging environment for both Life Insight clients and staff.

“Throughout the whole mortgage process, Tom and his staff were with me all the way. The customer service is impeccable – whenever I have a question or concern, someone is a phone call or email away. Coming from a larger bank, I had no idea how good it feels to work with a banking team that knows you and your business and wants to help you succeed. I will, without a doubt, continue to partner with Centrust,” Stukas said.
