“Seminole Financial Services has been my banker, mentor and friend since 1995. I have worked with Bob Banks and many members of his staff over the same period of time on several real estate projects, and am very pleased with the business relationship we share. Their attention to every detail and willingness to listen and adjust to our needs is extremely important. I look forward to our next project together.”

“Seminole Financial Services was able to provide construction financing for us in a very complex tax-credit structure and during a period of extremely tight credit markets. Their staff was able to find creative solutions for our transaction that helped make our project a success. Seminole Financial Services’ staff was very friendly and helpful as we proceeded through the construction of our project. Their knowledge and experience in construction finance helped us make sure we were able to pay all of our construction vendors in a timely and accurate manner all while staying under budget.”

Craig Dublanko

CEO, Coastal Energy Wind

“We could not have done it without Seminole Financial Services. When the financial and political winds changed in late 2009, we were left holding the bag as lenders retreated from renewable energy projects. I began a search for a construction lender and contacted well over 100 institutions and investors, however I found none of them truly had experience in wind construction financing. What we realized was that potential lenders did not know how to value the project, could not verify the estimated numbers, and therefore could not get to the level of comfort needed for them to loan to the project. Seminole made the difference with their experience, in both construction lending and community wind projects. Seminole did not just sit in an office and look at the paperwork; they traveled to the site, met with the project team in Europe and verified that Lime Wind is a solid community wind project. Seminole stands alone in community wind construction financing – in addition, they are affordable and are great people to work with.”
