Born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, Loan Officer Sharon Townend has called Jacksonville home since 1990.
“I love it here,” she says. “Watching the growth and development in Northeast Florida over the past 25+ years has been nothing short of remarkable.”

Sharon decided to come onboard with Atlantic Trust Mortgage 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 and 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 and setting realistic expectations up front. I have a vested interest in getting my borrowers to the closing table on time and feeling like they’ve had a great experience with Atlantic Trust Mortgage.” 

“My goal is for every borrower to be a customer for life.”
