PrimeLending Wins Freddie Mac Home Possible RISE AwardSM for Outstanding Work in Affordable Lending


PrimeLending, a national home lender, has earned the Freddie Mac Home Possible RISE (Recognizing Individuals for Sustained Excellence) Award for Total Volume. The RISE Award recognizes lenders for excellence in producing the greatest volume of Home Possible® mortgages – Freddie Mac’s affordable lending solution for low-to-moderate-income home buyers.

“We believe homeownership leads to stronger, healthier communities and families,” said Steve Thompson, President of PrimeLending. “That’s why we’re so passionate about supporting programs like Freddie Mac’s Home Possible, which empowers so many first-time homebuyers to achieve their dream to own a home.”

The following PrimeLending loan originators were recognized for their standout performance and commitment to making responsible and sustainable homeownership a reality for people living in our community:

  • Alex Varela (NMLS#: 184823), Branch Manager, Grapevine, Texas
  • Chuck Hage (NMLS:129921), Loan Originator, Dearborn Heights, Mich.
  • The Lisa and Michelle Team (Lisa Nicholas, NMLS#: 113687), Shelton, Conn.

“I’m so proud of these individuals who are leading the way nationally with this important program,” said Thompson. “They each embody the attributes we value most in our loan professionals – expertise, compassion, attention to detail and customer care.”

The Home Possible RISE Awards combined volume from national Home Possible and Home Possible Advantage mortgage options. Lenders must be active Freddie Mac sellers/servicers, and correspondent lenders and brokers must originate through those sellers/servicers. Freddie Mac reviewed 2018 data and awarded the top organizations among several categories.
