President, OneTrust Home Loans

F1

Within a few short years of beginning his career, Shane Erskine was already recognized as being among the top originators nationally.

Fast forward to now – as a business owner, Erskine strives to set an example that employees want to follow. He not only recognizes and encourages employee accomplishments, but also provides opportunities for growth and success among his team. In 2008, Erskine began his company when he partnered with his brother to build a successful company that designed and executed custom financing platforms for homebuyers. At that time, this was a first for the market. Soon, their creative financing solutions effectively stabilized many of these developments. And the company continued to grow despite a difficult mortgage climate, and in 2013 rebranded to become OneTrust Home Loans. Under Erskine’s leadership, OneTrust Home Loans has experienced tremendous success. As of press time, the company had seen 1160% increase in revenue and is now licensed in more than 40 states with more than 50 branch locations.

We start with a plan, things don’t always go accordingly to plan and being able to re- evaluate and shift direction is key.”
