MOUNT LAUREL, NJ – September 25, 2018 – Freedom Mortgage, one of the nation's top non-bank, full service mortgage lenders and a leader in government-insured lending, is proud to be named to the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S. 2018 marks the sixth straight year that Freedom has been named to this exclusive list. Freedom Mortgage is the largest NJ company as measured by revenue to earn placement on the list for six consecutive years. With an impressive 154% revenue growth rate over 3 years, Freedom Mortgage is ranked 2,716th on the list of 5,000.
By making the list for the sixth straight year, Freedom Mortgage earned a spot in the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame and is pleased to be one of only 15 financial services companies to earn this distinction.

We are very proud of receiving this honor for the sixth straight year. It demonstrates what we achieved over a difficult period in the mortgage industry, said Stanley C. Middleman, chairman and CEO of Freedom Mortgage.
We made the decision to grow Freedom Mortgage in the downturn and this ranking demonstrates the hard work of our employees and the dedication to serving our customers and fostering home ownership. We could not have this type of growth and success without them.
