NewPoint Hires Charlie Crowe, Growing Affordable Housing Finance Team and West Coast Operations

Irvine, CA (April 4, 2023) – NewPoint Real Estate Capital LLC ("NewPoint") has hired Charlie Crowe as Director, Originations. Crowe will be based in NewPoint's Irvine, CA, office and will focus on providing affordable housing owners and developers with the full range of NewPoint's Proprietary, Agency and HUD/FHA financing solutions.  

Prior to joining NewPoint, Crowe was Director of Finance at nonprofit affordable housing developer Burbank Housing, where he led the firm's overall capital strategy, oversaw enterprise-level capital raising and managed project-level debt and equity initiatives for a 3,200-unit portfolio. Before that, he spent six years with Freddie Mac Multifamily, most recently on the Targeted Affordable Housing (TAH) Structured Production Team, working to originate, structure and securitize unique products like Q-Deals, M-Deals and SMART Deals. Crowe also played an integral role in developing Freddie Mac's Single-Family Rental (SFR) Pilot program and structured, underwrote and executed both the first SFR Pilot loan and the first SFR loan supporting Housing for the Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled (HIDD).
