Our Team

Atlas Crown Financial was co-founded by Dan Isham and Luke Schrotberger in 2014 to provide financing to individuals for real estate purchases as well as the education about the process so they can proceed with confidence.

Although Atlas Crown facilitates financing for residential and commercial projects, the ownership team is particularly passionate about providing information and resources necessary for “green” real estate projects. We believe these real estate investments are healthy for both our client’s budgets and the environment. We empower and equip consumers with the knowledge to understand why sustainability in real estate is synonymous with quality, progress, and financial prudence. We look forward to the day when all buildings meet the standards of what is called “green” today!

Atlas Crown’s headquarters are in Downtown San Diego and currently provides loans for commercial and residential projects California, with approval in Colorado and Florida in process. More states will be added in the future. If we are not capable of processing your loan, we can help you find a lender that meets your needs.
