Welcome! 

At Key Business Strategies, we simplify the process of obtaining business loans. We make your life easier by using our extensive experience and network to find the right lenders for your business. No more going from financial institution to financial institution only to find out weeks or months down the road that your situation does not fit with their lending guidelines.

We realize that every customer has a different combination of assets, limitations and dreams. Our job is to understand your unique needs in order to formulate the perfect solution for you.

Our consultations are confidential and together we will go through the process to gain an understanding of your true financial situation.  We will help you pull together your financial package complete with  an executive summary that lending professionals love . We will match you to the best lending institutions  for your needs.

We’d be happy to help you understand your options – over the phone or in person. It would be our pleasure to serve you.

Patrick O'Connor

Business Development

My father and mother were both small business entrepreneurs.  As I was growing up, I saw them struggle in different seasons of business.  Sometimes the local bank is unable, or unwilling, to make the necessary loan in times of need. Businesses are helped in achieving their goals by using a commercial loan broker who finds the right lender for a commercial client.  I truly want to do what is in the best the interest of client I represent.
