Freedom Mortgage Corporation
Stanley C. Middleman
President and CEO
Freedom Mortgage Corporation has worked diligently to create a unique position for itself within the market. And that work has paid off: The company has been featured on the Inc. 5000 list for the past three years. In the past two years, Freedom Mortgage’s employee count has more than doubled, and the company has undertaken five separate acquisitions. Through its mission of fostering homeownership, Freedom has allowed people to manage and leverage one of their largest personal investments. “Homeownership improves, strengthens and beautifies our neighborhoods and communities, thus making the fabric of our society stronger,” says president and CEO Stanley C. Middleman.
Quick Tip: “Set your value proposition to what you can do, not what someone else does.”
Freedom Mortgage Corporation intentionally operates within a variety of business channels, including wholesale and retail, and this has given it the flexibility to find success in any interest-rate environment, says Middleman. In addition, the company creates goals that align both with individual teams and with overall expectations. These goals are monitored closely, allowing Freedom Mortgage Corporation to manage accountability and responsibility along with expectations. “Strong personal relationships and the trust that arises from saying what you mean and doing what you say keeps us focused and exceeding expectations,” says Middleman.
