In many ways, the healthcare real estate sector is a stealth one. Year after year, these assets, primarily medical office, produce steady returns with little fluctuation, delighting its loyal investors. Senior housing, another component of this asset class, is much the same albeit with a little more volatility depending on its fundamentals. Still, navigating these categories is no mean feat for the men and women who specialize in them. Regulations hang heavy over the sector and healthcare real estate has not escaped the current issues troubling commercial real estate, namely high interest rates and falling valuations. In the following pages we acknowledge the accomplishments of these people, their teams and their companies.


Founded in 2021, NewPoint Real Estate Capital was formed to bring innovation and efficiency to real estate finance. When it launched, the firm was largely focused on traditional multifamily finance, but aware of the demand for creative financing to support the needs of investors serving the nation’s aging population, the firm quickly put into play a strategic effort to broaden and bolster existing products and the originations, underwriting, processing and servicing capabilities for healthcare and senior housing financing.

In December 2021, NewPoint executed the first step in this process with the acquisition of Housing & Healthcare Finance, a leading FHA Healthcare origination and servicing business consistently ranked in the top echelon of HUD/FHA LEAN lenders. President of FHA at NewPoint, Erik Lindenauer worked to integrate teams and operations with a focus on expanding origination capabilities and refining underwriting processes to support a sector recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. The results of these efforts, and those from the greater NewPoint team, helped NewPoint secure the No. 2 spot for FHA Lean initial endorsements in HUD’s 2022 and 2023 fiscal years. NewPoint then turned its focus to broadening its product line to include Agency senior housing lending solutions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. As a result of the firm’s commitment to the senior housing space, NewPoint achieved the designation as a Fannie Mae Seniors Housing Lender and Freddie Mac Optigo Seniors Housing Lender. NewPoint provides a range of capital solutions – from traditional programs to more creative, innovative financing – supporting the multifamily, affordable housing, senior housing and healthcare sectors.
