You might say mortgage lending is in America (nickname Maggie) Lamorell’s blood. Her mother was a Loan Originator and brought her into the business over 25 years ago. Maggie was a quick study, moving up from Jr Loan Processor to Underwriter to Account Executive to Owner in record time. In 2014 after five successful years, she closed her company and joined forces with Wells Fargo and then Homeside Financial as a Branch Manager. Today, we are thrilled to have Maggie bring her extensive knowledge and experience to the Embrace Mobile AL branch.
Maggie’s quest to help her clients achieve the American dream of homeownership comes from the heart. Her parents migrated from Cuba and bestowed their first US born child with the name America. America (aka Maggie) listens carefully to each of her client’s needs and is dedicated to finding the perfect loan for their situation — even if it means going the extra mile to make it happen. She is bilingual and a member of the Hispanic American Business Association of the Greater Gulf Coast and is passionate about the Wings of Life counseling service program and The Sisters of Mercy Convent.
Mortgage lending isn’t the only thing Maggie inherited from her family. She is a master in the kitchen. In 2011, she opened a Cuban restaurant and food truck called Mommas Mojo, and her Yuca Frita with Garlic Cilantro Mojo won the Taste of Mobile Best Side Dish . Maggie lives in West Mobile with her life partner James Napoli, two dogs Beta and Sofie, fat cat Marvelous Marvin, and an African Grey Parrot named Cuca, who always has to have the last word. In her free time, Maggie loves to be on the water boating, fishing, and swimming, but her favorite sport is chasing her three grandchildren.
