I've been a community banker for 22 years, specializing in commercial real estate lending for the past 6 years. I've spent a significant portion of my career in commercial and residential construction lending, with a "minor" in Acquisition & Development (A&D) lending. I know the north Metro Atlanta real estate market because I grew up here.

Given the present uncertainty of the US economy, there has never been a more appropriate time to do business with a community banker. www.cbaofga.com. Your reason for referring clients to me is the assurance that they'll be treated with respect by an experienced, responsive human being who listens more than he talks, is then able to explain the complexities of banking services in terms anyone can understand, & shares your sense of urgency about closing the sale.
Whether it was an old boss, Robert Kyosaki, Dale Carnegie, John Adams, Dave Ramsey, Clark Howard, or your grandmother, no mentor has ever advised anyone to find a good bank. The advice is, "Find a good banker." Following the "birds of a feather" principle, good bankers will always be found at well-run, customer-centric banks.

The U.S. economy will soon thrive again. When the tide turns, those who've established strong business relationships with a community banker will be in the driver's seat for continued success (www.cbaofga.com).
My ideal customer is an Atlanta-area business owner who scratches her head when asked, "Who's your personal banker?" If you don't know who your banker is, you don't have a banker. Time to call me.
