Service and Integrity matter above all else for Loan Officer Erin Pierce.

Erin Pierce, a top-producing Loan Officer out of Wilmington, NC, discusses getting the most out of the resources available at Southern Trust.

“My name is Erin Pierce and I am a mortgage originator and construction specialist. I love being a loan officer. I love waking up and coming to work. I love who I work with. Whether that be my referral sources, my realtors, or my builders.”

I chose Southern Trust because they had such a variety of products and I wanted that. I wanted to be able to offer my clients what they needed. You pick a company and you don’t really know truly what it’s made of until you get going. And with the Southern Trust, I am so thankful that I ended up here because it’s absolutely like a family. My coworkers, we’re always going out. We’re not competing against each other, we’re going out and marketing with each other. We are helping each other. At other companies, I was treated like a burden as a loan officer, that’s not how it is with Southern Trust, everybody digs and flows. They’re all in it together. It is just such a relief and a breath of fresh air.

"The Southern Trust team is unmatched. They have the right people in the right places."

The Southern Trust leadership team is unmatched. I mean, it is absolutely amazing that they have the right people in the right places, and you can reach out to any of them anytime. But even above that, I mean the president of the company comes to visit us. The owner of the company comes to visit us. We can pick up the phone and call them. They’re following up. They’re actually taking action to make sure that we have the best possible process. They’re making sure we have the best possible people, and that is why Southern Trust is next to none. There’s no point and even looking anywhere else and if you do go for it because you’re only going to find out how awesome Southern Trust is. I would not take back my decision to come over and I plan to retire with Southern Trust.
