Laura Escobar oversees the mortgage lending subsidiary of one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, Lennar Corp.

Rising through the ranks to become president of Eagle Home Mortgage, Escobar leads a team of more than 1,100 associates in 54 locations across 26 states and has made it a priority to meet, talk and listen to every employee. Under her leadership, Eagle has transformed into a digital-first organization, lowering origination costs by more than $2,000 per loan, while increasing customer satisfaction by double digits. This evolution wouldn’t have been possible without a cultural transformation, one that inspired associates to become digital champions and adopt new programs with incredible speed and agility. As a 30-year mortgage industry veteran, Escobar has held leadership positions with both bank-owned and independent mortgage companies overseeing all aspects of mortgage banking. She currently sits on multiple advisory boards and committees, including TransUnion Mortgage Advisory Board, the Ellie Mae Executive Advisory Board and the Mortgage Action Alliance. Outside of the office, Escobar works with Women United, a chapter of the United Way. The chapter’s focus is on diversity and inclusion and moving people forward, and the goal of the group is to help women feel like they are having an impact.
