2022 Home Possible RISE® Award Winner

Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) announced the winners of its Home Possible RISE Awards®. The annual program, RISE (Recognizing Individuals for Sustained Excellence), salutes Freddie Mac’s top clients across multiple categories for excellence with the Home Possible® mortgage – Freddie Mac’s affordable lending solution for very low- to low-income homebuyers.

Croghan Colonial Bank earned the Home Possible RISE Award within the “Greatest Volume” category for making an impact on affordable lending. Lenders within this category represent the top originators from national to local organizations who are producing and/or aggregating the greatest volume of Home Possible mortgages.

“Receiving the Home Possible RISE award means that we are making an impact in helping our homebuyers make responsible financial decisions through the home buying process,” said Teresa Joseph, VP, Residential Lending Manager. “It helps show how Croghan is doing its part to help the communities we serve become stronger through homeownership.”

As the country continued to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, our focus at Croghan was to make the home buying experience as stress-free as possible for each buyer. Everyone was experiencing stress and pressure due to shut-downs, remote work, homeschooling children, etc. Our goal was to make the home buying process smooth and easy.

The Home Possible RISE Awards are based on loan volume from national Home Possible and Home Possible Advantage mortgage lenders. Lenders must be active Freddie Mac sellers/servicers. Freddie Mac received 2021 data and awards the top organizations among several categories.

The complete list of the award winners is available at Follow #HomePossibleRISEawards for photos and additional information.
