Partnering for Growth

They’ve been pivotal in how we’ve managed to grow.

Jackson Restrepo learned the hard way how to succeed as both a landlord and real estate investor. The mistakes he made early in his career—such as investing at the peak of the real estate market in 2005—set him back about six years, but those lessons have paved the way toward prosperity today.

When Jackson reentered the market, he was better prepared. He had saved tenaciously for down payments on properties, studied the real estate market, and built a partnership with Country Bank, which made all the difference.

The bank took the time to meet with Jackson in person and went over step-by-step what he needed to do to qualify for his first commercial loan, which he took out a year and a half later. He’s been buying properties ever since—and relying on the expert guidance of his bank every step of the way.

“It’s that personal touch, that personal relationship that Country Bank has offered us that has given us such confidence in what we’re doing,” he said. “They’ve been pivotal in how we’ve managed to grow our company. They’ve been a key part of our success.”
