On Saturday January 25th 2020, Alex Lieb, Sales Manager of Access Capital Mortgage, took part in the 2020 Maryland Polar Plunge for the Special Olympics of Maryland at Sandy Point State Park, representing Rock Creek Council #2797 Team Polar Knights. The team raised $4,382.00 that contributed to the state wide collection of over $2,500,000 for the Special Olympics athletes. Team members District Deputy William Newbrough, Grand Knight Michael Houlihan, and Warden Alex Lieb, donned tunics, and Viking helmets. Armed with swords and shields, they braved the icy waters of the Bay with all the other 10,000 plus Plungers in attendance who plunged from 11:00am to 4pm.
A very special memorial mention goes to fallen officers PO Kyle David Olinger (End of Watch 4/18/2019) and Sergeant Anthony Oglesby, Jr. (End of Watch 12/18/2019).
Team Polar Knights is looking forward to repeating next year and exceeding this year’s goal.

After more than fifteen years in business, Access Capital Mortgage has retired the original logo and replaced it with an updated design in honor of a new office in downtown Baltimore. We are especially excited to roll out this brand new, overhauled website that will make the application easier and more informative for our clients. In business, change and growth is always good. However, who we are has not changed. The Team at Access Capital Mortgage remains committed to our borrowers, both current and future, and are excited to have created a process that we hope will inspire confidence in any borrower. The process is not always an easy one yet we are determined to make it as smooth as possible from start to finish.
Access Capital Mortgage moved into a newly-renovated office space at 1128 S. Charles St. in Federal Hill, Baltimore last week. ACM has been in South Baltimore for eleven years.
The office opening is featured in SouthBmore.com.
ACM also has offices in Bethesda and on Wyndhurst Avenue in Baltimore.
ACM’s office has been designed with new hardwood floors and glass walls. ACM will also be installing tin walls and ceilings in the reception area. ACM will be using the second floor two-bedroom apartment as additional office space.
ACM does refinancing and purchase loans for residential and investment property owners and works closely with Baltimore home buying incentives. “We specialize in creative financing for the neighborhood,” said Patrick Marsiglia, VP and Senior Loan Officer for Access Capital. Marsiglia has been working in the neighborhood for fifteen years and has worked with most realtors in the area.
“We knew we wanted to be back on Main Street,” said Marsiglia. “We were excited to renovate this property that was the last eye sore on the block. We’ve had a great welcoming already with people coming by and congratulating us.”
When asked about the new office’s access to the restaurants and stores of Federal Hill, Marsiglia simply said, “it’s the best.”
ACM will be hosting a grand opening on Opening Day of the Baltimore Orioles season and looks forward to hosting parties on its rooftop deck throughout the year.
