Mortgage Banking Experts Call on Georgia Delegation to Address Housing Finance Reform

15 12 2017

"The instability of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is a real concern for all Georgians and should be for all Americans, too," said Fowler Williams, MBA State Ambassador and President and CEO of Crescent Mortgage Company.
