RST Agency, LLC is widely regarded by our clients as the leading firm for sourcing alternative capital in the industry and we have been serving clients since 2011 across a wide range of industries.  The one constant that has always guided the firm is integrity.  We are proud of our reputation and ability to get our clients’ fundings closed on terms that are fair and reasonably priced.  

Industries We Serve

Our firm has served a wide range of clients both in the U.S. and offshore.  Most of our clients have come from the following industries:

  •  Large Real Estate Projects
  •  Resorts & Hotels
  •  Office Buildings
  •  Mining
  •  Oil & Gas
  •  Waste to Energy
  •  Transportation
  •  Light Manufacturing
  •  Medical Clinics/Hospitals
  •  Entertainment
  •  Farming/Agriculture​

We work almost exclusively with existing clients and only by referral.  However, we do accept a limited number of projects from new clients who have high quality projects.  We specialize in bringing sources of alternative capital to the table that create the greatest opportunities for our clients and solve their toughest problems.  Our clients fit two categories.  They are either companies needing to source funding for themselves or they are investors and lenders who want to exit their current position in companies.


our approach

"Nick is very much a professional in his role as a lender and pre-commitment analyst."

          -- Wayne Walker, PhD,  President of Global ResQ, Inc.

"Over the past few years, I have worked with, and assisted, Ragle Sustainable Technology Sales Agency, LLC (“RSST”), and its Managing Member, Nick Ragle.  By way of background, RSST is a North Carolina limited liability company, formed by Mr. Ragle in 2011 and is based here in Asheville, North Carolina.  RSST is a capital advisory and business consulting firm and assists its clients in structuring financing using private money from both national and global sources. The most recent matter in which I assisted RSST and Mr. Ragle involved a bio-diesel plant in Chester, South Carolina.  It is a $1.6 billion structured financing arrangement using private money.  The first two releases of equity occurred in February 2016 and July 2016 and totaled $50 million.  Full funding is set to occur in January 2017."
