Starpointe Mortgage - Subprime
Starpointe Mortgage recently, and quite abruptly, shut down. According to a Detroit News article titled Brokerage shutdown draws prob published on July 3rd:
If that's not bad enough, the article goes on to explain how not seven days prior to StarPointe's closure an email was sent out regarding new agencies and new loan officers that concluded "Keep GrOwing [sic]!!!"
It would seem that there may have been some extraordinary shenanigans going on at StarPointe. You can actually find some commentary including ex-CEO Michael Cosentino's email regarding the shutdown, as well as a copy of the "Keep GrOwing!!!" email alluded to above on ActiveRain. In Cosentino's parting email he notes:
We have been unable to discern the volume of loans handled by StarPointe. Should you have any details please contact us.
