Thank You to Our Optigo Lenders

Richard Martinez, Senior Vice President


The final numbers are in, and with your partnership, we funded $78.4 billion, slightly more than last year. On behalf of Freddie Mac, I’d like to thank you for all your business throughout an interesting year. Whether your deals were big, small, or somewhere in between – we really appreciate your loyalty to us.

You can see the top Optigo® lenders on our Lender Appreciation page, but I’d like to give a special shout-out to the number one lender in each category:

  • Overall Volume: Once again, CBRE claimed the top spot
  • Conventional: The race was neck and neck, but Berkadia came in on top
  • Small Balance Loans: CBRE was huge in the small balance space
  • Targeted Affordable Housing: In another tight race, JLL took the lead
  • Seniors Housing: Newmark Knight Frank knocked it out of the park with Seniors

Regardless of the rankings, I want to reiterate how much we truly value all our lenders. It takes more than just big transactions from the largest lenders to make us all successful, and we look forward to working with you to go further in 2020.
