Company Release - 3/11/2020 9:22 AM ET

FAIRFAX, Va., March 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MainStreet Bancshares, Inc., (Nasdaq: MNSB) parent company of MainStreet Bank announced that MainStreet Bank has been designated as a Preferred Lender with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

Shanton Kittler, Senior Vice President & Head of SBA Lending for MainStreet Bank

MainStreet Bank's designation as a preferred lender places us among SBA's best lenders and empowers the bank with fully delegated lending authority. The Bank is already an authorized SBA Express lender.  The Preferred Lender status is only given to Banks with a proven track record of successfully processing and servicing SBA-guaranteed loans.  Other factors that are taken into consideration include performance, loan volume, and a clear knowledge of SBA policies and procedures.

Advantages of our SBA Preferred Lender status include:

  • Faster turnaround time,
  • proven track record,
  • more flexible terms and conditions, and
  • the ability to start a new business, buy an existing business, or purchase commercial real estate with as little as 10 percent down.

"We are excited to have preferred lender status with the SBA as it allows my team to better serve our clients," said Shanton Kittler, Senior Vice President and head of SBA lending.  "We have a great relationship with the SBA and this combination will provide great opportunities for our business community."  

MainStreet Bank is a growing $1.3 billion community bank headquartered in Fairfax Virginia with seven branches in Herndon, Fairfax, Fairfax City, McLean, Leesburg, Clarendon and Washington, DC.  The Bank works with the SBA to offer 7A and 504 lending solutions.
