Since 1994, ResCom Services has provided homeowners’ associations and commercial property owners with convenient, one-stop shopping for a full range of services. The company is organized into five divisions licensed in specific trades: general contracting and repair; landscape; pool and spa; lighting; and janitorial.

“All five divisions are under one roof, but separately supervised and maintained,” explained ResCom owner Mark Sutton, who has been in the property services business for 20 years. “Property managers throughout San Diego and Orange County can call us to get just about any service they need. We have more than 200 properties we work on in any given month.”

Recently, ResCom launched a new division specializing in services for low-rise, mid-rise and high-rise buildings in downtown San Diego and Orange County. Sutton’s wife, Cheryl, heads the downtown division, which is growing quickly.

To accommodate its ongoing growth and give the company the ability to configure a facility to meet its specific requirements, ResCom recently purchased a building after many years of leasing space. The new facility is ideally situated in a commercial area of Vista.

“We closed escrow about three or four months ago,” Sutton said. “We’ve moved in and are tweaking the facility to accommodate our needs. We’re very happy with our new location.”

The building purchase was made possible with an SBA loan provided by Torrey Pines Bank. Sutton chose the bank because he’d heard about its extensive expertise in the area of SBA loans and reputation for guiding clients through the loan process. “Torrey Pines Bank worked very closely with us,” Sutton said. “They offered excellent service and went out of their way to make sure our needs were met.”

Since 1986, Ad-Quick Signs Inc., a full-service sign company, has earned a reputation for producing highly effective signage and graphics for a diverse range of clients throughout San Diego County. The company has been in the same building on Hancock Street, conveniently located behind the Sports Arena, since it opened.

In order to take their company to the next level, owners Tracey and Tom Cabral knew it was time to move to a larger facility. But they also wanted to stay in the same area.

“We’d expanded our business as far as we could in this building,” Tracey explained. “But it was very important to us to stay in this area of Point Loma.”

With the help of Kent Twomey, an SBA lender with Torrey Pines Bank, the Cabrals recently acquired a commercial property that meets all their requirements. Soon, they will begin construction of a new, larger facility on the site. Upon its completion, they will add two more employees to their current staff of six.

Because they were dealing with a probate property, the Cabrals faced some special challenges during the purchasing process. According to Tracey, Twomey played a key role in helping them overcome those challenges.

“We received complete assistance from Torrey Pines Bank in overcoming obstacles that would have caused most banks to turn us away,” she said.

Cabral was also pleased with the great communication and service they received throughout the loan process from Torrey Pines Bank commercial lender Kent Twomey.

“Our relationship with Kent was phenomenal,” she said. “We felt like we knew what was going on every step of the way. We received daily calls and updates — I’ve never had that kind of experience with a banker before. You just don’t find that type of service today.”

The bank has four branches in San Diego County and offers a variety of SBA financing options.
