Brett Atkins

SBA Lending Sales Manager

Brett Atkins believes small businesses are the backbone of the country, and their success is essential to economic growth and prosperity.

As a HomeTrust Manager responsible for SBA and USDA lending, he’s committed to partnering with his team to ensure entrepreneurs across the United States obtain the necessary capital to purchase commercial real estate and open, acquire, and expand their business

He believes government-guaranteed lending options function as an incubator to get ideas off the ground, and he feels thankful to provide life-changing funding moments by providing loan options from $350K to $5.0MM.

He has personally handled a $3.0MM SBA business acquisition loan to assist in the purchase of a general contractor company in South Carolina; a $3.7MM SBA business acquisition loan to help with the purchase of an assisted living facility business in Florida; a $2.1MM SBA business loan to finance the purchase of owner-occupied commercial real estate for a gas station/convenience store in North Carolina; and a $700K SBA business loan to finance the expansion of an auto franchise in Minnesota.
