Freedom Mortgage named 5-star lender

by MPA01 Nov 2014
A Hayward mortgage company has just received one of the industry’s highest ratings for quality.

Fremont Bank, a wholesale mortgage lender based in Hayward, has earned Mortgage Professional America Magazine’s prestigious 5-Star Lender rating for its regional product mix and pricing and compliance support.

MPA’s 5-Star Lenders were chosen after an exhaustive survey in which the magazine asked mortgage originators to rate their lenders in a variety of areas.

“We didn’t award the 5-Star rating lightly,” said MPA editor Ryan Smith. “We asked thousands of originators to assess their lenders – and believe me, they didn’t pull any punches. Out of more than 200 lenders evaluated, only a handful earned top marks in any of the five categories we examined.”

MPA rated lenders for their product mix and pricing, turnaround time, compliance support, technology and training opportunities. To view the complete feature, please visit and look under the e-mag tab.

“Fremont Bank received exceptional ratings across the board – and mortgage professionals are tough to impress,” Smith said. “To be awarded a 5-Star rating in even one category is a real honor; to get two 5-Star ratings is a badge of excellence.”
