Brian Picker started his career as a loan officer in 2001 right out of college, quickly rising through the ranks to become a Branch Manager, and then joining Southern Trust Mortgage in 2014 as a Regional Manager. After more than 2 decades working as a mortgage professional in various capacities, ‘making home happen’ for his clients and building long-lasting relationships is still his passion.
When he joined Southern Trust, Brian says he knew immediately that our core values resonated with him. One in particular remains in the back of his mind each day: “amaze every customer.” His personal business philosophy has always been built on delivering a high level of customer service, and he wants his clients to have a seamless, stress-free, and fun homebuying experience. Brian even has a handful of clients who he’s done 5-6 loans or more for over his career. Therefore, going the extra mile and “amazing every customer” is always a top priority.
He believes the future is extremely bright for Southern Trust Mortgage and can’t wait to see what the team will accomplish down the road. During his 8 years here, STM has grown tremendously as a company with a great group of leaders. “I have no doubt our team will continue to make Southern Trust one of the best regional mortgage companies on the east coast.” –Brian Picker, Regional Manager
