Rushmore Correspondent Lending Services Receives Freddie Mac Home Possible RISE Award

Dallas, TX (May 19, 2022) – Rushmore Loan Management Services LLC is proud to announce that our Correspondent Lending division has won the 2021 Freddie Mac Home Possible RISE Award® in the category of Fastest Growth! RISE, or Recognizing Individuals for Sustained Excellence, is an annual program that salutes Freddie Mac’s top clients across multiple categories for excellence with the Home Possible mortgage. Home Possible is Freddie Mac’s affordable lending solution for very low- to low-income homebuyers.


“It’s truly an honor to receive the prestigious Home Possible RISE Award for our work to help people enjoy the benefits of homeownership,” said Patrick Reese, President of Correspondent Lending for Rushmore. “We strive to offer loans that support the Community Reinvestment Act, which encourages lenders to meet the needs of borrowers in all communities, including those with low to moderate incomes. A key component of Rushmore’s Environmental and Social Governance plan is helping homeowners obtain affordable housing, despite the obstacles the market presents, because we know diversity and equal opportunity enrich and unite our communities.”


Correspondent Lending is a division of Rushmore, overseen by CEO Terry Smith. “I’m so proud of our Correspondent Lending team for this great achievement, which is even more impressive when you consider they earned this recognition while overcoming the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Smith said. “Improving a family’s future by creating sustainable homeownership, especially for homebuyers in need of affordable housing, is one of our priorities.”
