The program measures servicers across key operational and performance areas relative to their peers, and acknowledges their achievement through star designations. 

"Fannie Mae wants servicers to be responsive to homeowners who are struggling and work with them to prevent as many foreclosures as possible. Through STAR, we've seen servicers make measureable improvements over the course of the program's first 18 months," said Leslie Peeler, Senior Vice President of National Servicing Organization, Fannie Mae.
