Arbogast Homes"I have had the great pleasure of working with Larry Weisinger and his team at SouthStar Bank on several large, complex custom home projects. Larry delivered exceptional service, great value, and a long term partnership to each and every client. I have been so impressed, I had Larry and SouthStar Bank finance my personal home as well."

Sommerfeld Construction“I’ve worked with Brent Gibbs at SouthStar Bank to finance construction of several high-end residential projects, including the spec home we are showing during this year’s Parade of Homes. From our first call through the final draw, they consistently make the process easy and straightforward – even when the project is not. The professionals at SouthStar Bank clearly understand builders and their needs, and deliver as promised.”

Triple B HardwareFour years ago, Tony Bielamowicz of Bremond decided to expand the family cedar mill into a hardware store to serve the communities’ need for rural living supplies. After extending his building shell, he turned to SouthStar Bank for several loans including inventory, an eye-catching digital street sign, and later a forklift. Along the way, he enlisted SouthStar to set up his merchant services (credit card acceptance) account. Tony’s never met a stranger, and greets customers with free refreshments and expert DIY advice.
"SouthStar Bank is a fantastic business partner. Norman and Justin check in regularly, and I’m comfortable asking for just about anything a bank provides. They made it a priority to understand my vision for a true mom-and-pop store where folks can come in for a part and some fix-it advice. Their help got us selling and keeps us going. Thanks in part to SouthStar, business is great!"
—Tony Bielamowicz, Owner, Triple B Hardware.
Custom Gym and Retail Store FrontsSupplied funding to established business partners for land acquisition and construction of a 9,000 square foot, two-story retail building in Lakeway, TX. The new facility will house the partner¹s BodyWise Gym along with two retail storefronts for tenants.
"After experiencing nothing but hassles trying to work with two large banks we've had relationships with for years, an associate suggested we try SouthStar. It quickly became clear that SouthStar cares about local business and the benefits we anticipated from owning our own building. We were surprised at how easy the process was and how important they made us feel every step of the way."
—Kay Sconci and Don Hardwick, BodyWise and Donkay Real Estate.
Bank Held MortgageProvided a dynamic young professional with a bank-held jumbo mortgage to purchase this non-traditional River Hills (Austin) residence on an oversize wooded lot featuring sweeping views.
“After months of searching for a lender who would finance a self-employed, 27-year old first-time homebuyer, I was on the verge of giving up. After many exhausting ‘NO's’, an associate recommended I visit with SouthStar Bank. I was immediately impressed with their ability to look beyond the standard paperwork and consider the individual behind the application.
Other lenders said ‘you don’t quite fit the box and should start small’. The team at SouthStar Bank assured me that because they set their own lending criteria, the jumbo loan I needed was quite workable. We’ve enjoyed our new home for several months now! If you’ve been turned down because a banker doesn’t ‘get’ your vision, give SouthStar Bank a call!” — Jonathan Twaddle, Homeowner
