Vanessa Barron-Washington

Loss Mitigation Team Leader Freddie Mac
Vanessa Barron-Washington has enjoyed 24+ years as a professional in the Mortgage & Finance industries. She started her career in financial management with an eight year enlistment in the U.S. Air Force before her honorable discharge from active duty in March, 1992. During this time, she served in important roles such as Stock Fund Manager over the budget of her entire base command at RAF Lakenheath, England’s largest U.S. operated Air Base. After leaving the Air Force, she went on to join the management team of Shapiro & Burson, LLP, a once prominent Real Estate Law Firm located in Fairfax, Va. There she managed the operational accounting needs for the firms’ staff and clientele of more than 120 lenders, investors and government insurers. During her 14 year tenure with the firm, she advanced to the role of Director of Accounting & Loss Mitigation, responsible for developing and overseeing numerous Loss Mitigation processes designed to help struggling homeowners avoid the loss of their homes to foreclosure, bankruptcy or eviction. Her interest in helping others avoid financial disaster extended to the pursuit of independent ventures in financial, mortgage and tax planning from 2006 to 2012. She partnered with local real estate brokers and mortgage lenders in educating borrowers seeking not only to attain homeownership, but more importantly, to protect and preserve their most valuable asset once. Her dedication to a career in mortgage & finance industries finally led to joining Freddie Mac in August, 2012 as a Loss Mitigation Team Lead in the organization’s Single Family Division. She whole heartedly embraces the mission to restore confidence in the stability and integrity of today’s housing market. Her days are spent partnering with servicers throughout the lending community, both national and community based, offering Through the training, coaching offered to Freddie Macs lending partners, and the monitoring of their performance, her role is critical to ensuring the effectiveness and success of numerous modification programs available to borrowers for the preservation of their homes. She pursued her formal education through the Community College of the Air Force, University of Maryland and St Leo College, majoring in the fields of Business Administration and Accounting. Vanessa is approaching 20 years of marriage with her husband, Antoni, and still enjoys being a doting ‘basketball’ mom to their 5 wonderful children. Along with serving as a certified Credit Smart instructor, she is also a faith based financial counselor and certified instructor of Crown Financial Ministries. Her greatest challenge yet is the ongoing mission to develop a financial curriculum geared towards the needs of deaf family members and friends, to aid in their own unique quest for financial empowerment!
