Dr. Beth Collins is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in aesthetic medicine utilizing both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Her full-service cosmetic surgery and medspa practice truly offers everything to help her patients achieve their dreams.
Dr. Collins wanted to grow her practice by opening a second location so she could continue to serve her current customers, build her dream office, and expand her market reach statewide. After a lengthy search, Dr. Collins fell in love with a building in Mystic, Connecticut, and partnered with GSB for financing.
“It’s been a really wonderful experience,” said Dr. Collins. “GSB has always been there for me. I had relationships with other larger banks and the thing that I see as unique is it’s a community bank and there is a much more personal touch.”
GSB provided Dr. Collins an SBA 504 commercial real estate loan, requiring only 10% equity for the acquisition of her new building. “We closed the loan for her in early March 2020 and sadly, COVID hit. Her plans for Mystic were placed on a temporary hold until the return of more normal times. GSB stands committed to her project and to helping Dr. Collins in any way we can,” said Brett Eagleson, GSB VP, Commercial Loan Officer.
When Dr. Collins talks about the lending process and overall relationship with the bank, she said, “GSB made it just so easy for me. They were very much invested in my success and having my business go forward. Just as much as I was, I felt.”
