Red Mortgage Capital, a division of Orix Real Estate Capital, LLC, continues to expand its national presence, opening a new office in Los Angeles and hiring Jim McArthur as Director of Multifamily Originations. McArthur, who joins from JLL, will lead the new Red office in Los Angeles. The firm had long-standing offices in San Diego, as well as Newport Beach, and opened a San Francisco office last October.
Red Mortgage Capital’s Trent Brooks says, “As Red continues to strategically expand its national footprint, we are thrilled to have an experienced industry professional like Jim leading our origination efforts out of the Los Angeles office. Jim’s vast multifamily experience in the western US will further enhance the high level of expertise Red delivers every day for our customers.”
McArthur spent the bulk of his career at Freddie Mac in Chicago and Los Angeles, where he held positions in both the Underwriting and Loan Production departments.
