Although the color scheme is similar, this mark is a departure from the current logo displayed on Freddie Mac's website.
The mark above was also filed by Freddie Mac on the same day for the same services. The intent-to-use basis of these applications (meaning Freddie Mac isn't using them yet), and the fact that I could not find these designs anywhere on the internet, signals that Freddie Mac is in the process of re-branding.
Freddie Mac's strategic use of intent-to-use based trademark applications allows the organization to secure priority in mark before it is even being used. These applications are permissible and lawful as long as Freddie Mac had a bona fide intention to use the marks in the near future prior to filing. Keep an eye out for a logo change by Freddie Mac soon.
