Mark Sherman

Mortgage Loan Originator
NMLS #1389284

Mark earned his Mortgage Broker’s license in 1989, during the Savings and Loan Crisis. It was not a great time to enter the world of Mortgage Lending. 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. It was also a small town in which it did not take long to make friends and advance one’s career. So after a 3 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.

I am very fortunate to be a loan originator for Atlantic Trust Mortgage here in NE Florida. Atlantic Trust Mortgage is a Mortgage Broker which affords our customers the best that ALL lenders have to offer. As a Broker, we can shop for the products and pricing that best serves our customers.

Mark was born in French West Africa. He is the son of a retired State Department Diplomat. He speaks fluent Spanish, is a Graduate of Florida State University and is currently training to become an accredited CE Instructor through FloridaRealtors.

Sharon decided to come onboard with Atlantic TrustMortgage because they both share the same philosophy;

“It quickly became apparent, after meeting the team here at ATM, that we were going to be a great fit. ATM embrace the advances that technology keeps delivering but they also understand that mortgage lending, at its core, is about people, first & foremost.”

“Mortgage lending isn’t just number crunching” she explains. “There’s a human element to this
industry, that’s often overlooked. The loan process can be nerve wracking, and for some, slightly overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be though. My job is to eliminate all that by educating my borrowers on the loan process & setting realistic expectations up front. I have a vested interest in getting my borrowers
to the closing table on time &feeling like they’ve had a great experience with AtlanticTrust Mortgage.”
