Mortgage Loan Originator
Mark earned his Mortgage Broker’s license in 1989, in South Florida. In 1991, Mark moved to Jacksonville. Northeast Florida was certainly a different lifestyle and environment from South Florida. But it did not take very long to realize that he had made a great choice and that there would be plenty of opportunities here for those who worked hard and were accountable to their customers. Jacksonville has a small town feel in which it did not take long to make friends and advance one’s career. So after a three-year stint in the building supply industry and working with a Custom Homebuilder for a number of years thereafter, Mark re-entered the Mortgage Industry again in 1996 with Dolphin Home Mortgage in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Soon after, Mark became a top producer for Countrywide, Wells Fargo and a co-founder of Gibraltar Mortgage for the Prudential-Network Realty franchise. By 2005, Mark had his own company Sherman Mortgage Group. After the crash of 2007, Mark worked primarily in the Property and Casualty Insurance business and re-entered the Mortgage Industry in 2015.
