Carl’s journey with OnDeck

Carl has been a dedicated customer of OnDeck, and he recently chose our services for the seventh time to secure a loan.


Back in 2017, Carl’s journey with OnDeck began when he received a direct outbound call from one of our team members. Since then, he has been a loyal customer, utilising a total loan amount of $735,000. His continued patronage and substantial loan history have made him a highly valued customer at OnDeck.

With his most recent loan, which was handled by Dom Richardson from OnDeck’s renewals team Carl secured $125,000 over a 12-month period.


With the funding he received, Carl is successfully facilitating the relocation of his high-end hardware retailer to a new, impressive showroom located at ‘The Vines’ at 24-30 Wellington Street Waterloo, which is just around the corner from their former premises, in Young Street, Waterloo. Trading from the new site of Mother of Pearl & Sons is set to begin in mid-July 2023.


According to Carl, this strategic move will result in significant cost savings, amounting to $200,000 per year in rental expense savings.

In addition, Carl strategically allocated a portion of the financing he obtained from OnDeck towards fitting out the new showroom and implementing new growth marketing promotions, such as a new website and social media campaign. This proactive step will contribute to further strengthening his business and expanding its reach.


Navigating turbulent times seamlessly

When asked about the impact of the current economic climate on his business, Carl confidently stated: “Nothing has changed for me – my typical customers are generally quite wealthy and do not feel the stresses of this environment.


“High value architecture, demands thoughtfully considered detail, and this is where we come in.”


As an example, Carl mentioned a recent sale of over $100,000 worth of door furniture originating in France to a customer based in Sydney.


Carl expressed his utmost satisfaction with Dom’s service and praised OnDeck for their “simple and efficient” loan application process. Their seamless support has left a lasting impression on him and solidified his trust in the company.
