SouthStar Bank further develops its small business lending division with an expanded team. Alexis Michael, Amanda Aaron and Pam Barbeau carry a combined 33 years in SBA lending.

The qualified team is dedicated to supporting local business. They go beyond the standard SBA benefits of lower down payments and longer terms, to build lasting relationships with clients through personal service and quick responses. By understanding local Austin markets and every detail of the loan process, they allow their clients to keep focus on the business.

An SBA Preferred Lending Partner (PLP), SouthStar Bank offers SBA 504, 7a and Express loan programs. The Bank began offering SBA products in 1994, which was a perfect complement to its long history of community banking. 

SBA Director Alexis Michael has built a reputation as a strong leader and expert lender by being friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. “I am looking forward to the continued growth and success of our SBA program,” says Mrs. Michael, “Not only have we streamlined the loan process for faster credit decisions, we have the most dedicated team out there. We are committed to serving our customers with a superior level of products, service and care.”

SouthStar Bank operates 15 full-service branches, including six Austin-area locations in Steiner Ranch, Bee Cave, Southwest Austin, Round Rock, Leander and Georgetown. Established in 1920, the bank holds over $800 million in assets and focuses on community involvement and personal relationships. Decisions are made locally, allowing the flexibility to apply common-sense standards to products, services and loan requests.

In addition to residential and commercial lending, SouthStar Bank offers a full line of competitive consumer and commercial deposit products. With the latest conveniences, including online banking and mobile banking with check capture, debit card alerts and freeze capabilities, and a free worldwide Allpoint ATM network clients can easily bank on the go.
