NewPoint Real Estate Capital bolsters senior housing and healthcare team

NewPoint Real Estate Capital has tapped industry veteran Christopher Honn (pictured) to help expand the firm’s senior housing and healthcare platform as managing director.

Honn will serve as managing director of seniors housing originations, focusing on agency loan programs. He brings more than 35 years of experience and has built several successful production platforms for non-profit and for-profit clients.

NewPoint, a Chicago-based commercial real estate company, expanded its senior housing and healthcare lending platform in May. Honn will work to offer the firm’s existing HUD/FHA-focused programs.

“Chris brings a tremendous wealth of product and industry knowledge that will prove invaluable to our clients as we continue to build a best-in-class partner to seniors housing and healthcare providers,” said Katherine Stewart, managing director and seniors housing agency platform lead at NewPoint. “Few in our space have the programmatic aptitude that Chris has developed over the course of his career.”

Before joining NewPoint, Honn served as managing director of Regions Bank. He has also managed Berkadia’s seniors housing and healthcare mortgage banking and underwriting team and served as director of Fannie Mae’s Seniors Housing Program early in his career.

“I am incredibly fortunate to be joining NewPoint at a time of such momentum for the firm,” Honn said. “Dedicated to supporting the full continuum of care with a single platform of financing solutions, NewPoint’s tremendous commitment to providing the best terms, execution and customer service undoubtedly differentiates us in the market.”
