LNB Earns National Recognition for Providing Mortgages for Low-to-Moderate Income Home Buyers; Congratulations to our Loan Officers for Home Possible Excellence

Geneva, NY, June 14, 2019 – Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) recently announced the winners of its Home Possible RISE AwardsSM. The annual program, RISE (Recognizing Individuals for Sustained Excellence), salutes Freddie Mac’s top clients across multiple categories for excellence with Home Possible® mortgages – Freddie Mac’s affordable lending solution for low-to-moderate-income home buyers.
The Lyons National Bank (LNB) is among the top three institutions in the nation to earn the Home Possible RISE Award for Total Volume.

The following loan officers were recognized for their standout performance and commitment to making responsible and sustainable homeownership a reality for people living in our community:
• Joseph M. Arbogast, Mortgage Originator, LNB Canandaigua Office
• Valorie A. Heinzman, Mortgage Originator, LNB Geneva and Seneca County Office
• Craig R. Mietz, Mortgage Originator, LNB Cayuga County Offices

“We are so proud of Val, Joe, and Craig for this well-deserved recognition on a job well done,” said Joshua N. Miller, Senior Vice President and Director of Retail Lending for LNB. “Having local lenders in each of our offices is very important to our customer service model. Lenders know our customers and the communities they work in and are dedicated to meeting the broad range of homebuyer needs.”

The Home Possible RISE Awards combined volume from national Home Possible and Home Possible Advantage mortgage options. Lenders must be active Freddie Mac Seller/Servicers, and correspondent lenders and brokers must originate through those Seller/Servicers. Freddie Mac reviewed 2018 data and awarded the top organizations among several categories.
