Doing the math: How a CPA's business grew with help from Synovus
As a CPA, Lisa Mayo knows her numbers. So when she says that Synovus both saved her money and enabled her business to grow, she's done the math.
The savings were easy to identify on refinancing a business loan for Mayo and Associates Certified Public Accountants, the company Mayo founded in 2015. Synovus helped her move from a variable-rate loan to a fixed-rate loan, adding up to significant savings for her business.
In addition to saving money on her loan, Lisa was also eyeing bigger changes for the company, which is based in Augusta, Georgia, but has clients around the globe.
"I need someone I can trust. With Synovus I have that relationship, and I can say, without a doubt, Synovus will take care of you."
“I didn't really see a future in the building we were in," she says. She set her sights on an office in a more prestigious, commercially viable location that included room for an expanding staff. Once she found the right spot, Synovus helped her secure a commercial real estate loan to purchase the new location at a rate that she calls “pretty amazing for a commercial loan."
The decision paid off. She's thrilled with the growth that she attributes largely to the move.
“Year-to-year income is up 21%," she says.
Lisa was on a first-name, holler-when-you-need-us basis with her Synovus bankers even before reaching out to them for the commercial real estate loan. When she did call, “they made the financing super-easy for me," she says. “They helped me secure the building so I could continue to grow my business."
Those are traits that Lisa appreciates in her line of work, and she's quick to point her customers to Synovus when they're looking for growing room.
"My clients trust me, and I need someone I can trust," she says. "With Synovus I have that relationship, and I can say, without a doubt, Synovus will take care of you."
