Earlier this month, New American Funding, a HARP 2.0 lender, welcomed Eli Fairfield to their Retail Lending Division, appointing him to Branch Manager of the Manhattan Beach office.
Fairfield, a former USC Trojan and pro beach volleyball player, began his career in the mortgage industry over 9 years ago. Eli has originated and funded in excess of $100 million in personal production, 5 out of the last 7 years.
As the new Branch Manager of the Manhattan Beach office, Eli plans to grow the Manhattan Beach branch to double its current size, while continuing to originate personal production. He joins the New American Funding management team at an opportune time, the national mortgage banker was listed this year among the top 30 mortgage companies in America and ranked number 560 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies in America.
Eli comments, “I’m excited for the new opportunity to be moving into management, as well as being aligned with a company like New American Funding where customer service is still a top priority. Having worked for several large banks in the past, joining a fast-growing, mid-sized Direct Lender seems the perfect fit for my team.” Eli’s Private Mortgage Banking Team consists of experienced South Bay locals that as a team, funded $125 million in closed loans in 2011.
