"You are making K Street law firms and lobby shops jealous," said Huizenga, who co-owns a gravel company and worked in real estate and development in the private sector. "They want to move to 15th and L. They want to move off K Street if this your headquarters."

"The breadth of Fannie Mae's fintech collaborations could herald big change for the US mortgage space. In a recent BI Intelligence report on innovation in the mortgage market, one industry insider said that significant changes in the US mortgage market would be almost impossible without innovation at the highest level, i.e. at agencies like Fannie Mae, considering that they account for 80% of all US mortgages, and dictate industry standards. And Fannie Mae's fintech deals follow Freddie Mac's partnership with fintech EarnUp earlier this month. That these powerful agencies are now liaising with startups to improve the mortgage market indicates large-scale change is now in sight."
