Leslie will coach loan originators, while Eric will oversee back-end operations, the company said.
“We’re excited to join forces with New American Funding, and have an unstoppable El Paso team,” Eric said. “It’s a strong market, and the best-kept secret of the Southwest.”
The Bergens are El Paso natives. They most recently worked at an independent lender where Eric was vice president and Leslie worked as a top-producing vice president, closing 400 loans and funding $80 million in volume last year.
“Not only do they have a wealth of mortgage expertise and in-market knowledge, but they’re skilled in training leaders,” said Tania Guzman New American Funding area manager.
