Freddie Mac has announced the winners of its Home Possible RISE Awards with three First Federal lenders honored.
The annual program, RISE (Recognizing Individuals for Sustained Excellence), salutes Freddie Mac’s top clients across multiple categories for excellence with Home Possible mortgages – Freddie Mac’s affordable lending solution for low-to-moderate-income home buyers.
Three First Federal Bank mortgage lenders earned the Home Possible RISE Award in the category of Home Possible RISE Awards for top new originators.
The following mortgage lenders were recognized for their standout performance and commitment to making responsible and sustainable homeownership a reality for people living in our community:
• Elaine Evans, vice president, retail lending manager, Delphos.
• Jessica Short, vice president, retail lending manager, Defiance.
• Jody Moss, retail lender, Bryan.
The awards combined volume from national Home Possible and Home Possible Advantage mortgage options.
Lenders must be active Freddie Mac seller/servicers or housing finance agencies, and correspondent lenders and brokers must originate through those seller/servicers.
“We are so proud of Elaine, Jessica and Jody for this well-deserved recognition as recipients of this prestigious award,” said Martha Woelke, senior vice president of retail lending for First Federal Bank. “They take pride in knowing our customers and our communities, and best of all, their dedication to working to meet the broad range of homebuyer needs is having a tremendous impact on the lives of hundreds of people.”
Within the past 17 months, First Federal Bank made homeownership possible for more than 185 borrowers with the Home Possible mortgage solution throughout northwest and central Ohio, northeast Indiana and southeast Michigan.
Freddie Mac reviewed 2018 data and awarded the top organizations among several categories.
