“BFG provides consistent great expertise and great service which gives me a level of comfort knowing that I have a great team supporting me and the customer. No matter the deal, no matter the stage in the process, they consistently go above and beyond expectations. I don’t know how you could find a better CDC partner than BFG; additionally, they are very nice people.
My team’s partnership with Gerald Baroudi and BFG truly is paramount to our success as a commercial banking group in this community. Gerald values the client experience and represents what we, as community bankers, stand for as to meeting the needs of the business community. I can’t imagine going to market without having Gerald on our side!
At Bank of The James, we pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service and being able to put our customers in the best products for them.

From a knowledgeable team that helps us brainstorm ways to help before the loan application, to the individuals who provide one on one support through loan underwriting, approval and closing. Top to bottom, Business Finance Group makes SBA 504 lending easy on the bank and a value add for our customers.
“Partnering with Business Finance Group to help our small business members with SBA 504 loans is a natural fit for TowneBank. Their personal approach to every loan opportunity mirrors the close attention I strive to give each of my members. Business Finance Group has become an extension of our credit team for these specialized loans. TowneBank appreciates this partnership, which allows our many small businesses to realize their dreams of owning their own commercial real estate and equipment for very favorable terms.”
When I work with Business Finance Group I have confidence in the company, their representatives and processing. I call Curt whenever I have a strategy question and he is always prompt with responsive ideas. When I work on a 504 project in Virginia, Curt is the first person I call.
We have had the opportunity to work with BFG on six successful projects over eight years. BFG has been a major player in our success, substantial growth and job creation. The relationship with BFG has increased our profits and established several real estate investments that will have positive long-term effects.
The BFG team guided us through the SBA504 loan process from start to finish keeping us informed on every step. Some thought we would not be able to complete the process in a 5 month period but with BFG we hit our deadlines and closed the loan on time. Thank you BFG for being our partner and helping us achieve our dreams!
They (Business Finance Group) are ultimate professionals and 504 experts, from the lender to their back office staff to the loan administrative group. A top notch and well-managed team, they make closing loans easy.
True Respite Brewing Company could never have opened without Business Finance Group [Gerald and Amy in particular.] We spoke with countless other banks, lenders, and financial institutions who would either make sky high promises and repeatedly fail to deliver or who quickly brushed us aside because simply because they didn’t have the “appetite” for new businesses.
On the other hand, Gerald took the time to meet us in person and really learn about our vision and our goals right up front. You were the first person in a position to help who truly believed in us and that made all the difference. Through your and Amy’s efforts, we were able to learn about and qualify for the Community Advantage 7a loan program. You helped us structure our 504 loan so that we could use the equipment we were purchasing as collateral on a large chunk of a complex package. I have never had such a positive experience with any person or group where money was involved and we’re thankful every day to have found you.
Gerald and Amy, you guys are central figures in the story of True Respite and I want to again sincerely thank you both for the invaluable roll you played in bringing our dream to life.
