About Royal Pacific Funding

Our Story

Royal Pacific Funding was founded in 1991 as a wholesale residential mortgage lender in Orange County, California. Over the years, RPF has evolved into a premier lender with its wholesale channel operating under Bluepoint Mortgage – a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Pacific Funding Corp., and a FNMA, FHLMC and GNMA approved seller/issuer. The company is now licensed to lend in 29 states and continues to grow its reach nationwide. RPF has not only endured but flourished in the housing market over the last three decades, fine-tuning its business strategies and gaining valuable insights along the way. With nearly 30 years of commitment and service to the lending community, RPF shares that knowledge with its respected partners through its Correspondent Channel.
