Al Freedman is CEO of First Freedom Preservation (FFP), where he oversees all aspects of FFP, a property renovation and preservation company that manages and services bank-owned, HUD, and real-estate owned properties. Freedman founded FFP in 2008 on the philosophy of “do it right the first time.” The more lenders, banks, and brokers Freedman worked with, the more he realized that the biggest service FFP provided its clients was the ability to sell REO properties faster and for more money—often before the renovations were complete. Freedman leads a staff of 70 full-time, licensed employees who complete renovations and upgrades and perform repairs and regular maintenance to restore the homes to a marketable condition. He is also a member of the Five Star Academy, a leading source of online education for the lending industry.
