2020 HW Woman of Influence: Rocio Portella

Mint Mortgage, Mortgage Loan Officer

Rocio Portella

Rocio Portella staked her claim as a true trendsetter and team player. Her secret sauce? Authenticity, hard work, speed and always striving to bring value.

Portella performs at a high level statistically, and was recognized as a top 1% MLO for two years in a row. Portella has always made it her mission to empower and develop those with whom she works. In 2017, Rocio funded more than $38 million in mortgage loans and held a spot for three years in the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals’ top 250. She is No. 35 in Florida as well as the No. 1 female Latina in the state. For two years, she sat on the list of top 100 minority LOs for the NAMMBA and is a three-time President’s Cabinet Winner. Driven by the notion that leaders are not great because of power, but because of their ability to empower, Portella founded and drives the Mortgage Chicks brand, where she leads and trains a team of women loan originators to be better producers, and encourages them to lean on each other for support. She also takes great joy in having developed and mentored multiple loan partners who had previously worked under her to become loan originators and business professionals themselves. Before joining Mint Mortgage, Rocio’s experience includes serving at companies such as AnnieMac Home Mortgage, Paramount Residential Mortgage Group and Everest Financial Group.
