Atlantic Trust Mortgage was founded in Jacksonville, FL in 2003 when Scott Goldstein, with many years of experience in the mortgage industry, acted on his vision of owning and operating his own mortgage company. Since then, ATM has proven to be a successful and rewarding venture for him and his team of seasoned Loan Officers. Their dedication to a steadfast and reliable style of business has resulted in the development of a strong reputation among homebuyers and local Real Estate Professionals. ATM’s commitment to providing the best service possible, to each and every customer, has fueled their tremendous growth. Atlantic Trust Mortgage has developed into a thriving business known for their trustworthiness and devotion to their customers and business partners.
A recent partnership with one of the industries finest, Wade Swindell, is proving to be a positive and exciting development for ATM. Wade shares the same vision as Scott for providing top-notch customer service, bringing his own brand of enthusiasm to the company. His experience, knowledge, and energy allow for the building of many positive relationships with both customers and his realtors.
Recently, 25 year industry veteran Mark Sherman also joined the team! Together with Scott and Wade, they are combining their passion and broad industry knowledge into growing a business that provides unparalleled customer service. Through their efforts they will continue to make a name for themselves, making Atlantic Trust Mortgage Jacksonville's local hometown lender of choice among customers, realtors and other industry professionals.
Mark earned his Mortgage Broker’s license in 1989 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl where he was raised and soon after moved to Jacksonville in 1991. 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 is a town in which it does 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.
Mark was born in French West Africa. He is the son of a retired State Department Diplomat and also speaks t Spanish. He is a Graduate of Florida State University and is an accredited CE (continuing education) Instructor for FloridaRealtors.
“Davidson is not an affiliate of Atlantic Trust Mortgage (“ATM”). Davidson and ATM do not share ownership. Davidson and ATM may share employees who are licensed to function in a dual capacity of real estate agent and mortgage loan originator. This does not obligate any consumer to use one or the other, or both. The consumer is always free to choose the agent or originator of their preference. Generally, no financial benefit to either company will flow directly from the consumers decision to use one or both. ATM’s principal website is Conventional Financing Northeast Florida | Home | Atlantic Trust Mortgage and consumers are urged to view ATM’s disclosures on that site.”
