I got an SBA loan from SmartBiz. The rep was great and very helpful. He always answered my questions. So, it was good. I’m happy with the result.

    Matt was very good. He was really helpful. He made everything really, really easy. The interest rate was pretty good. I got a 6% for 10 years and 150,000.

    I was so impressed with SmartBiz because the process was smooth. They only took two and a half weeks to get it done, even during the holiday season. Also, their rep was courteous and knew what he was talking about. He always asked me for whatever I needed ahead of time.

    SmartBiz was more prevalent than the others, and I saw them in more than one place. Their process was relatively simple. I just applied and was getting emails consistently at every stage. I was thankful that I got the final follow-up as far as my loan forgiveness. I'm glad everything that was advertised went through.

    I needed to make an application for the PPP loan and it was getting very difficult through my bank. I decided to Google to see if there are any other establishment handling that. So, it was the PPP loan application that got me into SmartBiz Loans. Their process was streamlined and everything was online, which I really liked. I had a great experience with them. I filled out my form and followed the instructions. They seemed very straightforward and I was very impressed. SmartBiz did a marvelous job. I couldn't do that through my bank, which is Wells Fargo. I thought their system was very simple. It made life very easy. Everything from filling out the application, uploading the form and the follow-up was straightforward. I love the experience I had with your place.

    I like their explanation and the way that they explained in detail the way that their loan process worked and the application process. The application process went smoothly. I also like the promptness. The loan went through fairly quickly. They were very easy to work with. My experience with SmartBiz Loans was excellent.

    I applied with SmartBiz for my second PPP loan as the company used for the first, and which was amazing, Customers Bank, was not processing the second round. The process for submitting all of my information was easy and then.. nothing. My application got to their Smartbiz review step and stayed there. I did get one message saying my application was missing my FEIN and logged in to fix it, but the FEID was right there on the application so someone at their company was obviously confused or incompetent. You cannot reach them by any means and they tell you not to try. As far as I can tell their only purpose is to gather all of your financial and personal information. Avoid them at at all costs.

    SmartBiz Loans author review by Barbara Friedberg

    SmartBiz is headquartered in San Francisco. The company was founded in 2008 to help businesses secure small business loans.

    • SBA loans: SmartBiz structures their website and application process to simplify the process of applying for an SBA 7(a) guaranteed loan. The company works with SBA lenders to help small business owners find the best choice for their business. If a business does not qualify for an SBA 7(a) loan guarantee, SmartBiz can help the owner find another financing option.

    • Quick pre-approval: Interested customers can fill out an online application to be pre-approved for a loan. This process takes less than five minutes and will not impact their credit score. They should note that the pre-approval and application processes are different.

    • Time to funding: Business owners can receive funds as soon as one week after their application is approved. For many customers, the entire process, from applying to receiving funds, takes about two weeks.

    • Success stories: SmartBiz’s website features the stories of their successful clients, so interested consumers can see how other business owners benefited from a loan.

    • Blog: Regular posts on SmartBiz’s blog are useful and informative for all business owners. Topics include understanding a credit score, office decoration and insurance. They also post tips about small business loans, legal matters and hiring practices.
