About Laura

Laura Dorsey is a new Senior Loan Officer joining us in Tampa, FL, where she focuses on mortgage origination to help borrowers meet their unique financial needs. Embrace’s sales and marketing support and products, including doctor and condo loans, inspired her to come aboard to be a better help to‎ borrowers, REALTORS®, builders, and industry partners. Many of Laura’s clients have become friends, and she doesn’t plan on that changing — it’s just how she does business. Committed to serving borrowers efficiently, effectively, and in a meaningful way, Laura views the mortgage as not simply a transaction but a broader financial tool that needs to be handled smoothly with care and concern for a client’s present and future needs.

Prior to Embrace, Laura worked in mortgage origination with Synovus. Her accolades include Venice Area Board of Realtors Affiliate of the Year, Venice Area Board of Realtors Scholarship Committee Chair (where she raised a considerable amount for local scholarships through an annual golf tournament), Chairman’s Club Elite, and Cross Sales Champion #1 in the company. She also ran her own mortgage broker business that is still in existence today: Gulfside Mortgage Services in Venice, FL, which at one time had three locations and 35 originators. She understands the value of a good corporate culture. In addition to her industry experience, Laura is also passionate about supporting the American Cancer Society (where she was a past board member) and Biker’s Against Child Abuse, an organization where she was a member and child liaison advocating for abused children.

Laura grew up in Port Richey, FL, and currently lives in Jamestown, TN, with her family and many pets (dogs, goats, chickens, and the barn cat). She enjoys farming, woodworking, being a good steward to all animals and riding her Harley.

    We know from years of experience with doing business with Laura Dorsey that SHE will get through every process. Laura is on top of every step in the process. Unlike many Lenders, Laura knows exactly what to expect during the process and immediately deals with every aspect of the lending process in a timely manner. This way, there are no surprises later on. Delays with other Lenders are often caused by a lack of timely dealing with something that should have been attended to but wasn't. NOT HEARING from the Processor is NOT in Laura's vocabulary. She knows what to expect and communicates extremely well; the with Processor and with the Realtor® and Borrower. If only every Lender was like Laura, it would be a perfect Mortgage Lending World! This comment was written by our five office RE/MAX Team Leader, D*ck Miller.

    A bit more reading of the fine print on behalf of Embrace's employees and relaying that information. So many things caught everyone by surprise. The details of the loan package chosen escaped all parties involved.
