Excellence in

Arbor has been a constant source of innovative ideas, including making the request that Fannie Mae Multifamily enable single sign-on capabilities for lenders. They were the first to onboard the single sign-on capability to allow their users access to Fannie Mae applications without entering login credentials. The Arbor team is a stalwart partner, always willing to test new functionality and provide feedback. Notably, they were also early adopters of the DUS  Gateway® application programming interfaces, far ahead of the 2024 usage mandate that will reduce rekeying efforts for deal registration through submission activities. Thank you, Arbor, for your fantastic partnership in helping drive Fannie Mae’s digital transformation for the DUS® community.

Excellence in

Greystone demonstrated their commitment to Duty to Serve (DTS) throughout 2022 by proactively sourcing eligible deals and tackling challenging targets across all three underserved markets.
