NewPoint Adds Two Loan Originators in Irvine

NewPoint Real Estate Capital has added Laurie Morfin as Senior Managing Director and David Bleiweiss as Managing Director to its originations team, based in Irvine. Morfin and Bleiweiss focus on providing financing solutions to multifamily and commercial real estate investors from a variety of sources, including Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD/FHA, life companies and other capital sources, on a national basis.

“Laurie and David have built their careers going above and beyond to secure the best available financing for their customers,” said Geri Borger Urgo, head of production at NewPoint. “We have long sought to expand our presence on the West Coast and are incredibly lucky to have these two experienced, client-focused individuals leading that charge.” 

Morfin brings more than 25 years of multifamily and commercial real estate finance experience to NewPoint and has originated more than $3 billion in loan volume throughout her career. Prior to joining NewPoint, Morfin was a Senior Vice President at Bellwether Enterprise.

Bleiweiss has more than 35 years of multifamily originations experience and has closed more than $5 billion in loan volume over the course of his career. He joined NewPoint from Berkadia, where he had worked in originations for the past 10 years.
