Freedom Mortgage Wins 8th Fannie Mae STAR Performer Award


Company is recognized again as a top-performing mortgage servicer in 2023

Fannies Mae STAR Award

Boca Raton, FL - March 7, 2024 - Freedom Mortgage, one of the largest full-service independent mortgage companies, and a top Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Federal Housing Administration (FHA) (government-insured) lender in the U.S., has received Fannie Mae's Servicer Total Achievement and Rewards™ (STAR™) Performer Award for the eighth straight year. Freedom Mortgage was recognized for excellence in General Servicing and for demonstrating operational effectiveness and measurable results to improve the housing industry.

Freedom Mortgage is one of the top ten largest servicers in the U.S., according to Inside Mortgage Finance magazine (4Q23). The company is proud to have serviced the mortgages of 2 million homeowners, representing over $460 billion in loans last year.

"Once again, we are extremely honored to be recognized by Fannie Mae," said Stanley C. Middleman, president and CEO of Freedom Mortgage. "Each and every day, we are committed to providing our customers with exceptional service. Our mission is to foster homeownership and assist Americans from all financial backgrounds with their home financing needs, so they can buy and enjoy the home of their dreams."

STAR is a performance management and recognition program that acknowledges a handful of companies across the country that demonstrate excellence in mortgage servicing and their ability to assist homeowners. Servicers are measured based on their general servicing performance, roll rates, retention, liquidation efficiency, six-month modification performance and timeline management, compared against the performance of other Fannie Mae loans with similar credit characteristics.

"Our servicing partners' success is essential to achieving Fannie Mae's goal of preserving homeownership and maintaining the safety and soundness of our business," said Cyndi Danko, senior vice president and Single-Family chief credit officer, Fannie Mae. "We're proud to recognize our top-performing STAR Program servicers and their commitment to ensuring operational excellence, reducing credit loss and continuously improving the overall homebuyer experience."

In addition to providing home financing, through Freedom Cares, Freedom Mortgage's employee engagement and philanthropic program, the company strives to better the communities in which it operates.
