Daniel Short, Business Advisor, worked closely with Landmark Protective Services located in Ellis County to assist the company with an SBA loan in the amount of $250,000. Landmark Protective Services is a security patrol business that services the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Daniel counseled Carolyn Kellis and worked with Veritex Bank to ensure that the loan moved forward and help the owners allocate the funds. This loan enabled the business to retain 83 jobs. In addition, Daniel has worked with Carolyn Kellis on being more efficient financially in the future. Carolyn stated, “Daniel was a huge part of my success in obtaining our SBA loan, I could not have accomplished this goal without his expert advice. Daniel was there to make recommendations and review information before it was submitted to our Loan Manger which gave me confidence that the information submitted was in the correct format to expedite our loan. I would highly recommend all business owners to take advantage of this free service because this type of guidance is priceless”.
