Freedom Mortgage Remains Nation’s Top VA and FHA Lender


Company led nation in serving veterans and underserved borrowers for second year in a row in 2021, according to Inside Mortgage Finance ranking

Boca Raton, FL – February 28, 2022 – Freedom Mortgage, one of the nation’s largest full-service independent mortgage companies, was the number one VA and FHA (government-insured) lender in the country in 2021, funding and servicing more loans for veterans and first-time homebuyers than any other lender, according to Inside Mortgage Finance (IMF) magazine. The ranking marks the second year in a row Freedom Mortgage has been the top VA and FHA lender in the country.

"We are committed to fostering homeownership at Freedom Mortgage, and the numbers show it," said Stanley C. Middleman, the company’s president and CEO. "While we are proud of this designation, our focus has always been serving veterans and Americans who have very little or no down payment so they can buy their first home and experience the joy and rewards of homeownership. In fact, there’s no greater honor."

IMF has evaluated the top 100 mortgage companies in a number of categories since 1998. Each company’s total volume includes purchase loans, interest rate reduction refinance loans (IRRRLs), and cash-out refinance loans made last year.

Millions of Americans took advantage of historically low mortgage rates last year to refinance their current mortgage or purchase their first home. Many of them were active-duty service members, veterans, and first-time homebuyers, who took out VA and FHA loans offered by the government to buy their dream home, reduce their monthly mortgage payments, or use the equity in their home to pay down debt.

Freedom Mortgage loan advisers have specific expertise at helping military borrowers and first-time homebuyers find the right mortgage option tailored to their financial needs. Last year, the company originated over $48 billion in VA loans and approximately $27 billion in FHA loans.

In addition to providing home financing, Freedom Mortgage is active in supporting communities in need and service members, veterans, and their families through Team Freedom Cares, the company’s employee engagement and philanthropic program.
