FORT WASHINGTON, PA — Newrez LLC (“Newrez”, the “Company”), a national mortgage lending and servicing organization, announced today that Senior Vice President of Correspondent Lending Marianne Mainardi has been named a Legend of Lending by Mortgage Banker Magazine.

The inaugural Legends of Lending awards aim to highlight the most talented, ambitious and legendary mortgage professionals achieving excellence and making a difference in the mortgage industry. The publication called upon industry professionals and readers for nominations before narrowing it down to the top 29 individuals to comprise the first class of award honorees.

“I am incredibly excited and proud to be among the inaugural Legends of Lending honorees,” said Ms. Mainardi. “As a leader, it is important to be immersed in the work you and your team are doing. I think that has helped me earn a lot of respect from my team and allows them to see me both as a leader and as part of the team – I would not want it to be any other way.”

Since joining Newrez in late 2019, Ms. Mainardi has helped scale Newrez’s largest lending channel - correspondent lending – into the successful structure it is today. She strategized from the ground up – fully immersing herself into the day-to-day operations to identify channel needs. Over the past year specifically, she has helped identify hundreds of banks and credit unions that were previously underserved and committed an entire division to developing tools and solutions for these communities.

“Marianne’s commitment to her team is unmatched, and she is known for her willingness to get her hands dirty when her team needs assistance – it is a privilege and an honor to have a leader on our team like her,” said Baron Silverstein, president of Newrez. “Her determination to look at every detail, even getting down into individual loan level details when needed, supports the Company’s broader goals and objectives. She is a force to be reckoned with and a true legend – both at Newrez and within the industry at large.”
