Bellwether Enterprise's Mission Draws Philanthropically Minded, Entrepreneurial Talent
Laurie Morfin says her 20-plus-year career in commercial real estate has afforded her the opportunity to work with “incredible firms with amazing people,” all while building a network of lifelong friends, mentors and clients. So what could possibly entice her to go to the boutique full-service mortgage-banking firm Bellwether Enterprise? It was the knowledge that over half the company's profits go back to its nonprofit parent company, Enterprise Community Investment, which endeavors to supply affordable, sustainable housing to low- and moderate-income families in diverse, thriving communities through loan initiatives and advocacy.
Bellwether Enterprise is among the largest full-service commercial and multifamily mortgage banking companies in the country, with production offices nationwide and an integrated servicing platform based in Cleveland.
