Becoming a Freddie Mac Multifamily Seller/Servicer
Freddie Mac's Seller/Servicer network is a highly selective group of experienced multifamily lenders and servicers. The small size of our network allows us to ensure quality originations and provide a high level of service to our Seller/Servicers and their borrowers.
Approved Conventional, Approved Targeted Affordable Housing, Approved Seniors Housing, and Approved Small Balance Loan Seller/Servicers must meet our standards for both origination and servicing of multifamily loans. However, simply meeting these eligibility standards is no guarantee that your company will be approved. Many lenders who meet, or even exceed, the requirements are not selected for participation in our network because the market they cover is already well served by one or more of our existing Seller/Servicers.
If you believe your company meets the basic requirements and would like to determine whether an opening in our Seller/Servicer network exists for your market, please contact the appropriate individual listed on our Key Business Contacts information sheet. If the director or vice president sees a market need for your services, we will forward an application form to you.
