Ladies land at Manhattan Mortgage after velvet coup.

In a major talent coup, two long-time top producing mortgage brokers at GuardHill Financial Corporation, along their respective teams, have joined Manhattan Mortgage Company, the metropolitan New York's leading residential mortgage broker and one of the country's fastest growing financial services companies.

In all, 14 mortgage professionals, headed by veteran loan orginators, Tina Blakeman and Ellen Liebowitz, have moved to Manhattan Mortgage, headed by its legendary chairman and CEO Melissa Cohn.

"This adds tremendous energy and vitality to our company and reinforces our commitment to expanding our inhouse real estate and financial talent base while continuing to elevate our service capabilities," asserted Ms. Cohn, who has named Blakeman and Liebowitz managing directors of the firm.

Specializing in arranging luxury residential loans for high net worth individuals, Blakeman and Liebowitz combined to originate close to $2 billion worth of mortgages during their respective eight-year careers at Manhattan-based GuardHill Financial.

Earlier, Blakeman worked as a mortgage broker in Boston and as an underwriter for Centerbank Mortgage Company in Waterbury, CT. Liebowitz was a successful mortgage broker in Florida, Washington, DC, West-chester County and Manhattan.

"We wanted to be with the top mortgage broker firm in the country, that's why we're here," stated Ms. Blakeman.

"In terms of synergy, technology, resources and banking relationships, there's no firm that compares to Manhattan Mortgage," added Ms. Liebowitz.
