Maureen McDermott

Loan Officer

NMLS #1213854

Email Maureen

As a military brat, Maureen has lived all over, but Savannah has felt more like home than anywhere else. She’s been using her 18 years of mortgage experience to understand her clients’ wants and needs as they search for the best place to plant new roots. With a father and three brothers in the USMC and Navy, her commitment to Veterans and service members is dear to her heart. The best part of her job is getting the chance to say, “you are cleared to close.” Additionally, she has a love for water sports: kayaking, diving, snorkeling, and sailing. In the summertime, her two puppies, Bailey and Juan, join along and become water babies.
