Newrez President Baron Silverstein Honored with HousingWire Vanguard Award


Fort Washington, PA— Newrez LLC (“Newrez”, the “Company”), a national mortgage lending and servicing organization, announced today President Baron Silverstein has been named a winner of the HousingWire 2021 Vanguard Awards. The prestigious honor is bestowed annually by the publication to recognize 50 executives in the housing economy for their outstanding leadership in the space.

With a 30 year-plus track record of guiding mortgage related platforms through a variety of transitions and market backdrops, Mr. Silverstein brings a dynamic perspective to his leadership. His unique understanding of the mortgage and customer lifecycle help enhance borrower and lending experience throughout the homeownership journey. Under Mr. Silverstein’s leadership, Newrez achieved significant growth in its origination lending platform in 2020, emerging as a top 10 lender with 176% production growth during the year.

“It’s been quite an incredible year for our Company – one packed with major growth, changes and opportunity,” said Mr. Silverstein. “To be named a HousingWire Vanguard is humbling-- one of the most important parts of my role is setting the right tone and culture for my fellow Newrez leaders to develop and navigate the peaks and challenges of the ever-evolving mortgage space. We have certainly accomplished that together and I am beyond proud of where our Company is today and what our future looks like.”

HousingWire’s 2021 Vanguards have led their respective organizations to unparalleled success, as evidenced by expanding products, services and profits in the past twelve months. These 50 honorees were carefully selected by HousingWire’s selection committee, for their vital contributions to their companies and the dynamic ways in which they are changing the industry.
