2023 Rising Star: Greg Middleman


Greg Middleman serves as senior vice president at Freedom Mortgage. He oversees correspondent pricing, counterparty risk, the MSR exchange program and tech teams. Since joining the company nearly three years ago, Middleman has launched a sister company and overseen the development and implementation of technology products that helped Freedom Mortgage save over 12 basis points per loan and reduced average times to close by five to seven days. He has led numerous projects to modernize internal systems and external facing sites which have improved customers’ overall borrowing experience.

Middleman is on the executive strategy team, and he is a leader in discussing the best course of action for Freedom Mortgage to take to continue to grow and stay in business. Last year, one of Middleman’s key achievements was leading the correspondent team to handle roughly one billion dollars of production per month working with 500+ clients. Last summer, Middleman was tapped to oversee the Freedom Mortgage servicing rights (MSR) exchange platform. Within a few months under Middleman’s leadership, the Freedom Exchange MSR trading platform has become a new revenue stream for the company which has topped $4.5 billion per month UPB, in terms of total loans. Moving forward, Middleman will take on and manage Freedom Mortgage’s banking relationships and work closely with other leaders to improve the company’s overall warehouse lending strategy.

What is one habit that has helped you succeed?

Making sure that I listen more than I speak. This allows me to gain as much information and perspective as possible and enables me to make better decisions. Listening has allowed me to get deeply involved across several areas of the organization and maximize the impact I’m able to make at Freedom Mortgage.
