ABA, Freddie Mac Extend Alliance To Help Members Succeed, Fuel The Housing Recovery

WASHINGTON, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Business Solutions, an affiliate of the American Bankers Association, and Freddie Mac today announced plans to help community banks compete in the purchase money mortgage market and help fuel the nation's housing recovery by extending their 8 -year old alliance.

The Freddie Mac/ABA alliance provides ABA's community bank members with access to critical mortgage products, technology, staff training and other services.

"Today's announcement with the ABA comes at a critical time in the nation's housing recovery," said James Cotton, vice president of sales at Freddie Mac. "Renewing our alliance with the ABA means more community banks will have the secondary market tools they need to help families take advantage of today's low mortgage rates and affordable home prices.  We take pride in our relationship with the ABA and our commitment to provide its members with a higher level of support in today's challenging market."

"We are pleased to extend our alliance with Freddie Mac," said Business Solutions president William Kroll. "Our valued relationship helps increase the mortgage offerings of our community bank members and expand their access to the secondary markets."

The Freddie Mac/ABA Alliance gives member banks competitive cash executions and exclusive training on many Freddie Mac products and solutions.  The Alliance also provides set-up advantages with Mortgagebot with Loan Prospector, a bank-branded website for originating mortgages with Freddie Mac's Loan Prospector automated underwriting service, and private-label subservicing through Cenlar FSB and Dovenmuehle Mortgage Inc.
