Partnerships that Matter: Investing in Local Communities
Yvonne Deardorff has been in the local real estate business for more than 20 years. First running her own company and now leading Lakeside Title, a Maryland title company that completes more than 4,000 settlements a year.
At Lakeside Title, Deardorff works with many entrepreneurs like herself who are working to improve the local economy by investing in communities.
“Revere’s been good to us because our clients are smaller investors, builders and entrepreneurial types,” said Deardorff. “We can refer clients to Revere because it is one of the few banks that’s willing to work with people just getting started. Most larger, institutional lenders will only give you money if you have money. Revere not only treats people well, they also give them a chance.”
Giving these entrepreneurs a chance to start their businesses has a trickle effect, according to Deardorff.
“Revere cares about the community and small business owners,” said Deardorff. “Revere looks past the numbers and looks at the person. They’re also in tune with what’s going on locally so that they make good investments.”
Deardorff is also impressed with Revere’s operations team and their personal touch with customers.
“One of the best things about working with Revere is that they’re responsive and they know who we are,” added Deardorff. “They understand we’re a title company and that things happen quickly with these exchanges. Their operations team is responsive, and they figure it out. There’s minimal red tape because Revere works with you.”
Deardorff is thankful to have a business partner like Revere.
“Revere is a great resource for us and our clients who are looking for a loan for their small business,” said Deardorff.
At Revere Bank, our partnerships put businesses on the fast track to success. We’re proud of the relationships we’ve built with local businesses to help improve the economies and communities of our customers and employees.
