WHO WE ARE
Starport is an invite-only platform for specialty mortgage origination. Beyond just a CRM, aggregator or matching engine, we’re defining the non-agency residential and small balance commercial loan origination process.
WHY WE STARTED
Rising interest rates coupled with profound socioeconomic and lifestyle shifts mean more and more borrowers are looking to specialty loans instead of traditional capital markets. We built Starport with the mission of becoming an indispensable part of that $300 billion specialty loan industry – the backbone. With decades of real estate financing experience, we’ve seen firsthand the scope of deals lost because there was no simple, efficient way to originate non-agency or small balance commercial loans. Now there is.
THE OLD WAY: A FRACTURED & FRAGMENTED ORIGINATION PROCESS
The borrower and loan opportunities you need are scattered across the country with no practical way to bring them together and originate a loan. Each third-party lender then has its own process, portal and staff which made running scenarios, data collection and diligence chaos. Endless emails, calls and other untrackable offline communication between intermediaries and underwriters rendered specialty loans all but impossible to capitalize on. Without a clear pathway, traditional originators haven’t been able to monetize a significant portion of their existing leads that require a specialty loan product.
THE NEW WAY: AN INTEGRATED, END-TO-END SOLUTION FOR SPECIALITY LOANS
Our technology centralizes, standardizes and organizes the fragmented world of specialty loans, creating nationwide access and a familiar process.
Starport’s platform is the pathway connecting agency loan originators and specialty lenders, allowing loan officers to quickly and easily offer specialty loan products.
An agency-like workflow to build a recurring revenue stream – at a time when every lead matters.
THE STARPORT ADVANTAGE: A COMMITMENT TO PEOPLE, FUELED BY INNOVATION
We built a real estate financing platform for the new era of capital markets, one marked by less capital availability and more volatility. We believe that technology adds tremendous value to the financing process, but in down cycles, strong relationship can make all the difference. Starport was built to cut through the noise and directly connect originators with specialty lenders to help every borrower find the funding they need.
