An Internal Business Valuation Solution for Lenders

The business lending community relies on our internal valuation platform to confirm a purchase price is reasonable at the beginning of the loan process before underwriting begins.

Our valuation report is accepted by the SBA for loans < $250,000 when a Third Party Valuation is not required.

Principal and Managing Director

With a background in marketing and project management for a successful dotcom company, Lori Mize became involved in business valuation she began working for GCF Valuation in 2002. During that time, Banker Valuation was developed specifically to meet the needs of GCF’s third-party business valuation clients (primarily SBA Lenders for 7A loans) who were in need of a web-based, user-friendly and more importantly accurate, business valuation calculator to help estimate a company’s value.

In 2004, we decided to separate Banker Valuation from GCF Valuation and Lori has been at the helm of the company ever since. The web-based business valuation calculator is now used by many of the nation’s top lenders as a prescreening tool for SBA 7A loans of any size and its valuation report meets the SBA’s requirement for internal business valuations for loans $250,000 and under. Currently, 5 of the top 10 most active SBA lenders use our business valuation calculator for SBA lending purposes. The program is also commonly used by community banks, credit unions and other lending service.

Under Lori’s leadership, Banker Valuation’s customer base has expanded beyond the SBA lending community and now includes conventional lenders, wealth management professionals, and other business professionals who use our calculator to help clients find out how much their company is worth.
