CHARLOTTE, N.C. — At a time of growing opportunity for the Non-Agency/Non-QM market, Deephaven Mortgage has recruited sales leader Steve Lemon to a top role within the organization.
Mr. Lemon is Senior Vice President, National Head of Wholesale Sales, charged with expanding Deephaven’s broker network as demand for its Non-Agency/Non-QM products increases.
Mr. Lemon brings more than 25 years of success to his new position, including 10 as Executive Vice President, Wholesale Division at Non-Agency lender New Century Mortgage and five more as a Director at Avelo, where he was responsible for client acquisition, sales and support for its prime jumbo conduit.
He has also served as President of The Lemon Six, Inc., specializing in private money real estate investing and consulting.
“Steve Lemon’s knowledge, experience and broker relationships in the Non-Agency space are second to none. He understands the rapidly evolving borrower landscape, and the products wholesalers need to compete within it,” said John Keratsis, President and Chief Executive Officer, Deephaven.
“This is the moment for Deephaven and its partners to soar,” said Mr. Lemon. “The conforming market just hasn’t kept up with the needs of a new class of entrepreneurial borrowers the way Deephaven has. Our partners want to do more lending, and Deephaven’s innovative products and services will provide them with a strong, steady outlet for new business.”
