Full Application

"Let Donald E. get you home!"


Donald E. Sharpe, Loan Officer at FM Home Loans, has been a mortgage broker since 1987, first working with several local independent firms in Tampa, Florida before starting his own firm, Sharpe Mortgage, in 1993. Donald has personally performed thousands of mortgage closing transactions as well as overseen tens of thousands throughout his career, and launched the careers of numerous protégés who are still successful to this date. After selling Sharpe Mortgage to his employees in 2010, Donald spent a few years in real estate sales, allowing him the opportunity to learn another aspect of the real estate industry. This gave him a great perspective on the industry as a whole.  The lure of the mortgage business called Donald back to the field in 2016 when approached with a Loan Officer position by veteran broker Melissa Cohn. An offer he could not refuse.

Donald Sharpe provided excellent service when I refinanced my home recently. He communicated my options clearly and effectively so that I could make the best decision for my family. His communication throughout the process was impeccable. He communicated often and regularly and always answered my questions with expertise. I knew I had selected the best lender when I realized he had my best interest at heart. His years of experience really allowed me to fully trust him. He's the best!

Donald and his team were exceptional from start to finish. As first-time home buyers, he was always available to answer any question we had, and would drop what he was doing to assist us at any time of the day or evening. He was communicative, informative, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

This was not an easy process. Sticky,slippery and complicated. Donald was able to navigate through the roadblocks and talk me off the edge to a successful conclusion. A+ from us, Donald,
