Whether you’re a first-time buyer, building your dream home, purchasing recreational property or simply need home equity cash for life’s expenses, SouthStar Bank is the partner you can count on. With 6 Austin-area locations, it’s all about serving the community. “Business comes from where we live, work and play,” says Gibbs. “There’s a good chance the borrower ends up being my son’s teacher or t-ball coach, which means I owe them in advance.” Their team of lenders takes this guidance to heart, providing superior customer service.

Ever-changing regulations and unexpected life events can make it difficult for qualified borrowers to secure the loan they need.

It also allows the Bank to offer a wider range of products including lot loans and construction financing with one-time close.
